Why Trump changed his tone on the coronavirus

President Trump changed his tone on the coronavirus – according to CNN

In the US, CNN report on a “shift in tone” that President Donald Trump has had towards the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak in the US and globally:

“I didn’t feel different… I’ve always known… this is a real pandemic” Trump told a White House press conference earlier this week, “I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic,” he continued, “all you had to do was look at other countries.”

“I think now it’s in almost 120 countries all over the world. No I’ve always viewed it as very serious.”

However, for example, as recently as March 12th, Trump was saying coronavirus would go away “very quickly”. There are multiple videos of the President saying similar things, in March 2020, when other countries, such as Italy, were seeing exponential growth in the virus’ spread.

CNN, whom Trump likes to call “fake news CNN” do have a point in relation to this matter.

What do you think? Has the President turned 180, or did he really know all along, deep down, that this was a serious crisis about to his US shores? Leave a moderated, public comment, below.
