We’re not even being asked to trust the intelligence agencies. We’re being asked to trust politicians citing reports from intelligence agencies which we aren’t allowed to see for ourselves.

"How do we know" if they are accurate, Trump asked

Says the male who personally saw thousands of Muslims dancing in celebration of the 911 attacks, who counted the largest crowd in inauguration history, who said this wasn't a pandemic/is a pandemic ad infinitum. Too late to trust what Trump personally claims. Stick to the scripts given by the medical experts and be a leader. Or go to one of your resorts and play golf.

You can take anything the Chinese government says with a grain of salt.

Better be careful Donnie - the Chinese will stop making those ties and shirts for you at cut rates in their sweatshop factories...

Then you'll have to pay more and have US textile workers make them...

We don't need that rhetoric now. We need action and tests

Can we trust the US intelligence agencies? What say you, Trump Supporters?? (You are the ones that have told us to ignore the president and you’ve cast aspersions on the intelligence community in the past, so you must be able to tell us if we can trust the intelligence community now.)

One the one hand, there's circumstantial evidence of a huge number of deaths in China (46,000) and looking at figures from other countries, it would seem that the Chinese figures don't add up. On the other hand, China locked down virtually the whole country two months ago, which could explain a quick flattening of the curve and lessening of deaths and infections. But pre-lockdown, it's hard to believe that China's figures are limited to what they say when you see what happened in Italy and Spain.

Then what ?Does doubt China's figure helps slow down US figure?I don't think so. Trump is so frustrated and powerless contain the outbreak in the US,so All he can do now is to shift focus to cover his incompetence.

The moron should be worrying more about his own figures. Thanks to trump incompetence the US is the epicenter.

The people of Wuhan think is the death toll is more like 42,000.

Yes, particularly when it comes to China.

(You are the ones that have told us to ignore the president and you’ve cast aspersions on the intelligence community in the past, so you must be able to tell us if we can trust the intelligence community now.)

Well, besides the top echelon trying to get rid of Trump and failing miserably at it, the majority of agents are honest and decent hardworking people, trust them more than Comey or the other fools that shot and missed this President.

So, we can trust the intelligence community when it is not trying to determine whether Donny is corrupt. Got it. It’s the same standard the fans of Big D use when determining if a poll or source is credible.

That’s up to you? I personally do.

Got it. It’s the same standard the fans of Big D use when determining if a poll or source is credible.

They’re liberal and from the fake news that the President always calls them, but liberals defend.

Yes, we know the “consistency” supporters of Big D use when determining what is real and what is fake. You yourself have cited polls and Newsweek repeatedly in the past few days, but before you were citing them, you disparaged them. Now you’re disparaging them again.

Thsts the consistency we love. ROFL! Dear lord! Smh.
