Why did Trump lie to us about the real danger of coronavirus? Did he think we're too weak or too stupid to deal with the truth?

    For people who's saying trump did what he did is because he didn't want to create chaos, than why did you guys blamed china for doing the same thing? China down played covid 19 for the same reason. Can you guys stop being so double standard? When you country is downplay it u called it " to not to create chaos, fear." when china downplayed it, then it is china being "liar, fake". Give me a break you republicans.

    No, for two reasons:

    (1) He didn't want the stock market to crash.

    (2) He doesn't care about the American people, only himself.

    Let's just say when the public figured it out, grocery store shelves were bare for weeks and gun sales flew through the roof.

    He's old school. It's a old generational style. 

    What is current, progressive is having a transparent conversation, education, and understanding to help us understand the issues and proceed upon an agreed plan.

    Trump comes from the same type of old generation of  don't educate people don't give them an opening to do xyz. If they have the option they will do the wrong thing. 

    Like America, is so traditional and old school about sex education compared to other countries. As a first, world developed country we disproportionally have more premature pregnancies and stds because the very old ideologies hold our society back. It's fear. This fear that if people are taught about sex, then right away they will run to being promiscuous. Instead of, being educated to be safe, responsible, psychology, making the decision. Or the idea that if abortion is legal, then people will be getting abortions like candy. 

    The very old ideologies run off fear. It actually makes things worse. We could have had a calm educated conversation about being safe in the pandemic. Dr Birx and Dr Fauci were a calming needed presence America needed but Trump was very obvious he wasn't forthright. Stocks plunged when we didn't start having the discussion about the pandemic and it rose after regular discussions. Not that stocks have anything really to do with the economy. It is a barometer for the market's perception of the US market's future outlook.

    Trump is a strong believer that strength means how much people fear you. He is unbalanced because he has a lot of fear. He believed, the minute this comes to light panic and set off, the economy was going to down and as a result he'd lose his re-election. It was his fear that impeded our country's success from saving more lives that didn't have to die.

    Trump for a while during his presidency spoke with Tucker Carlson every night. Tucker Carlson still continues to air to his viewers. Be afraid. Be afraid of Liberals, BLM & Biden. Night after night. In fact fear them. It's the only way people like Trump or Tucker Carlson know how to lead. That is to stoke hate and fear. It's a very very old technique that's worked to manipulate a large herd of people.

    So, Trump knows that Americans are too weak and too stupid to deal with the Truth. So he protects Americans from things that are possibly upsetting. That's the whole idea of having a Big Brother to think for you.

    Perhaps you noticed that we were all on a learning curve with the Corona Virus last January. Among Trump's Advisors were Dr. Anthony Fauci. He took a leading role in offering advice and warnings to the Public. Maybe you have noticed that Fauci's advice has changed repeatedly; weekly, and often day-to-day. The man speaks out of both sides of his mouth, and rightfully so. You see, Fauci owns the patent on this manipulated virus. One cannot patent naturally occurring substances, but because it was artificially manipulated by researchers in labs, it could be. Fauci stands to make millions of dollars as long as he can keep everyone guessing about appropriate steps to take against the virus. Fauci is making himself scarce as this news has come out, and now the media frenzy is keeping his lies and subterfuge alive, and public fear peaked. The media also has lied about Trump for 3 years with no impeachable acts uncovered. And now the public believes the media? It's absolute foolishness to believe the media any more. They have proven themselves to be untrustworthy; as untrustworthy as Fauci. Follow the money. Always follow the money trail.

    Are you dying of Covid, Anonymous? Do you have family members that are dying of Covid? You are more likely to die driving down the freeway than from this virus, but you don't here our leaders preaching at the podium of the extreme dangers of driving do you? The key is not to send the public into a panic, which is exactly what CNN is doing. Prime example: I'm a private pilot, I went to pay for my fuel at an FBO in Colorado without a mask on. The lady at the counter walked backwards until she hit a wall with fear in her eyes. I said, "Oh sorry, and put a mask on and said Safe Now?" She nodded and walked back to the counter with a look of relief on her face. There are people living in fear over this virus and they think that a simple cloth mask is like kriptonite for the virus. If you're going to get it, you're going to get it, and if you are so afraid of death, stay home.
