Few Americans regularly look to or trust Trump as a source of information on the pandemic, according to a survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research released last week.

This poll is accurate because I participated, my extended family participated, all of my friends participated, and so did my co-workers and business contacts.

Given this polls unquestionable credibility, I’m sure you Donny fans agree that this poll definitively demonstrates that the majority of Americans do not trust Donny regarding the coronavirus.

At this point Joe Biden could just point to Trump and go "You really want this guy leading the country?"

He'd win in a 1984 Reagan-esque landslide.

Looks like he's running away from the media. Good. Should help to limit the confusion and stupid comments.

Why on Earth would they trust him?

The guy is a bumbling idiot who speaks before he thinks and who tells lies as part of his nature. He is shallow and utterly incapable of rational thought. He might be able to sell refrigerators to eskimos, but this ability is not what is needed now.

Americans voted and chose this?

Really?

Trump pivot from virus to economy

Little Richard's 'Spinning like a spinning top' make good lyrics to describe the perpetually pivoting president who as usual probably worries more about his and his family's finances than the general population's, and even those of his fellow elite's.

How much bailout money (aka welfare/socialism for the rich) will Trump's global businesses receive. It looks like he'll need a lot to pay back China.

President Donald Trump owes tens of millions to a state-owned Chinese bank, and the loan is due in what would be the middle of his second term should he win re-election,

https://www.salon.com/2020/04/24/newly-revealed-financial-records-show-trump-owes-millions-to-state-owned-bank-in-china-report/

Then there are his Deutsch Bank loans.

How many businesses did Trump bankrupt?

I think the article should be changed from "until a vaccine is developed," to "if a vaccine can be developed." There is no certainty that one can be developed. Vaccines are not possible for all viruses. If that were true, we'd have a vaccine for rhinoviruses (the common cold virus) by now. There are no vaccines for HIV, HCV, norovirus, the herpes viruses, bird viruses or ebola and many more.

Trump will now pivot to the economy.

God help us all.

Any thinking person would be so done with the feckless media which has many easily deluded people thinking Trump said everyone should drink bleach. Jeez...

Americans voted and chose this? Really?

The alternative was Hillary. And this time the alternative is going to be either Biden or Cuomo or, don't rule it out, Hillary again.

Trump 2020 all the way.

How many businesses did Trump bankrupt?

Newsflash - bankruptcies happen all the time in business. How many times did Trump come back from the bankruptcies to become overall very successful?

if a vaccine can be developed." 

Good point. I've read this virus has mutated, that there might even be regional strains. It's probably wishful thinking a single vaccine could combat the varieties, especially given scientists are still trying to understand them. Lots more research needs to be done. Still, more power to those working for effective treatments.

Yeah, remove him not just from those COVID 19 briefings!

Since the man with such a high IQ never knows what he is talking about, maybe he should also avoid that economy talk. Let the experts handle everything, get rid of Jared the second oh so great in line and all your other family (business) advisors! And at last, get your act straight, as my former commander would have said.

Serrano - some people have taken a slightly exaggerated view of trump’s statement, but what he did say about disinfectant was not far off it - he was talking about whether we could look at injecting it. He claimed that it was sarcasm, when it quite obviously wasn’t. He was just talking off script and letting his mind wonder. It was pretty inarticulate, and time he learnt to keep his mouth shut and only talk to agreed points.

An economy that can collapse so quickly lacks resilience and undermines any suggestion that it was particularly good.

But either way, the economy was inherited from Obama and owes very little to Trump.

The purpose of these briefs was for the President and his team to answer questions directly to the American people.

the liberal media will only ask their own gotcha questions and then twist the words of the answers.

Although I like watching directly, those “journalists” aren’t asking what the American people want to know. so time to shut these down.

Can start up an economic recovery one instead.

And we did. Donny would spout nonsense and his team would immediately attempt to correct the nonsense. Leave Donny out if it so we don’t get any nonsense; it’ll be more efficient.

the liberal media will only ask their own gotcha questions and then twist the words of the answers.

Conservatives think that questioning which leads the party answering to demonstrate their ignorance is a “gotcha question” and that quoting Donny’s words is twisting them. No wonder red states are so poor and have such low quality of life.

You said they aren’t twisting his words. You know that the liberal media reported he recommended people to ingest beach and Lysol.

The daily briefings on the pandemic are nothing more than a disbursement of fake news, disinformation and misinformation. They are nothing but reelection campaign rallies.

The current occupant of the White House is a dangerous disgrace and We the People of the United States of America (U.S./USA) are paying a high price for having elected him.

November 8, 2016 is another date that will life in infamy and cannot be allowed to be repeated on November 3, 2020.

He has fooled some of the people most of the time ... enough already.

These daily nonsensical meetings are a waste of time and money. This photograph looks like a "come to Jesus meeting for journalists". Trump is always all over the place and can not focus on one single project and finish it. When the poop hits the fan on one of his projects, he shifts blame to everyone else and he has no one in in his staff that he will not throw under the bus. Hope we get someone better in the next administration and I don't care what political party they belong to, just fix the problems.

After two months of frantic response to the coronavirus, the White House is planning to shift President Donald Trump’s public focus to the burgeoning efforts aimed at easing the economic devastation caused by the pandemic.

Hmmmm..... OK;

Trump Corona Response Ad: Due to my incompetence, and focus on my re-election instead of lives, I killed over 50K people...Vote for Trump....

Trump Economy Ad: I took a great economy and drove it into the ditch - contracting GDP, highest unemployment rate in history, largest budget deficit ever, biggest stock market point decline....Vote for Trump....

Well, good luck with that...

Trump’s inner body disinfectant comment was just a “what if we could just... and it’ll all go away” thing you say while drinking with your friends. No need for the media and reporters addicted to asking gotcha questions to play it up.

Once Trump succeeds in the damage control of the virus he has to tackle the fundamental repairs of the structural problems that the crisis reveals. It’s not just the economy.

we had the best economy in the history of the world

This is of course factually wrong and a simple parroting of Trump's talking point. Trumps doesn't even have the best economy in the history of his own country.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-45827430

Reality Check verdict: It's true the economy has been doing well - but there have been periods when it was even stronger.

"For 2019, the data shows an annual average growth of 2.3%, ending the year at 2.1% for the fourth quarter.

This is significantly less than the 5.5% peak achieved in the second quarter of 2014 during the Obama presidency."

"After inflation is taken into account, real wages increased by 0.6% in December 2019, and peaked at 1.9% in February under President Trump, according to official data.

This is lower than the real wage increases of more than 2% that President Obama oversaw in 2015."

before the coronavirus hit everyone. And we will again.

What kind of policies do you think he will implement to save the economy? Cutting taxes for the wealthy usually only serves as a temporary boost and in this case will probably have no effect at all...

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Irrelevant to Faux “News” having so many retractions.

Well they don’t compared to outlets like the WP and NYT just a tip of the iceberg, but seriously, let’s focus for a moment, liberals want to jump all of the President, but he’s not allowed to excoriate them for lies and slanders? Why is this even an argument or a debate? The President will always have the final say and if liberals or the press don’t like it, there’s really not much they can do, but just take it. They’ll be ok.

*Trump's** global business empire seems to be on the ropes. Does he expect his global elite backers to bail him out, or the US taxpayers. *

Personal investments, more secondhand gossip?

No wonder he's in his safe room melting down. His house of cards is showing serious foundational problems. Just hope he doesn't do a wag the tail to cover this up, too.

For the life of me, I don’t know where you guys get this junk from. Trump needs to re-open the country and fast, PCs are good....to a point.

"How many deaths are acceptable?"

thats a gotcha question that has no acceptable answer.

"Zero" is unrealistic and as soon as one person dies it will be "Trump lied- he said no one would die"

Any answer above zero the media reports "Trump said its ok if people diiiieeeeeee"

Most questions are of a similar nature.

Trump owed tens of millions to Bank of China. Trump is warning “China will own the United States” if Joe Biden is elected president.

"In 2012, his real estate partner refinanced one of Trump’s most prized New York buildings for almost $1 billion. The debt included $211 million from the state-owned Bank of China — its first loan of this kind in the U.S. — which matures in the middle of what could be Trump’s second term."

here is an example of where they forgot to change the initial story to act like they never said he owes.

"President Donald Trump owes tens of millions to a state-owned Chinese bank, and the loan is due in what would be the middle of his second term should he win re-election, according to financial records obtained by Politico."

"How many deaths are acceptable?"

thats a gotcha question that has no acceptable answer.

I wouldn't qualify that as a "gotcha", but it is a dumb question. Or at least very poorly formulated, because there is a correct answer ("none") and Trump gave it (and if there is an honest answer, he would of course never ever have said it).

But it isn't a totally illegitimate question when we live in a world where Trump supporters go to rallies with "SACRIFICE THE WEAK" signs. There is little doubt to me that some higher-ups in the republican think-tanks believe it's better to let a certain number of people die so the economy can be reopened and they can make money again. I think even some people here might be thinking that? At least I've read some comments that seemed to suggest it.

Flip mode! I think there is No doubt that liberals are rooting for a failed economy of that means that could possibly get Trump out of office, the longer they prolong the re-opening of the economy IN CERTAIN SECTORS the more it hurts the President, so if that means businesses or lives are hurt in the process, so be it.

He then tweeted that he had not left the White House for "many months". Somehow forgetting that he went to Florida to play golf just last month and did a lot of rallies all over the country.

Massive lines building up from dawn at the food banks.

As we've seen over the past several months, the Trump supporters here are really in a funk.

They have seen the one item that their Sainted Leader could offer any hope of getting re-elected on - the economy - turn into a big smoking hole. And I mean big - highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression, largest point drop in the stick market ever, a GDP estimated to be -30% next quarter...

And they can't wrap their heads around the fact that to get out of this mess, Trump enacted the largest socialist bailout in US history - over a trillion dollars. And just yesterday, he signed another half trillion dollar socialist bailout bill. Yes, Trump has gone full-Socialist as his last hope to get re-elected...

They are beyond desperate - so they copy the tactics of their leader - they suspend reality...

Just like Trump saying inject a little Clorox and it will brighten your day, here we get Trump supporters saying "it's an irrefutable fact that Biden can't beat Trump" and "32% is more than half"...

Hey! I’m just going by how all these liberal Democrat governors are trying so hard even in areas that are not affected by this virus they trying to keep the country on lockdown, even in California people are starting to push against this, but don’t worry the country won’t elect Biden, Trump is too high in the polls for that to happen.

And they can't wrap their heads around the fact that to get out of this mess, Trump enacted the largest socialist bailout in US history - over a trillion dollars. And just yesterday, he signed another half trillion dollar socialist bailout bill. Yes, Trump has gone full-Socialist as his last hope to get re-elected...

Until the country gets back to work

They are beyond desperate - so they copy the tactics of their leader - they suspend reality...

The only people that are desperate are the Democrats, if they weren’t they wouldn’t be talking about trying to open up another investigation, that is clear desperation.

Pelosi proved she can’t do it or Schumer, they can’t even take care of their own States let alone the country.

Deflection. They are not trying to become president.

Deflection! Worse, they’re trying everything in their power by any means necessary to get rid of him. This is what desperation does to liberals.

White House aiming for Trump pivot from virus to economy

The two are linked. The economy is being destroyed right now because of the virus measures. Without a functioning economy, we all die.

Trump is of course more comfortable talking about an economy than about a virus, while his political opponents are happy when he is deprived of a good economy to brag about. What they don´t understand is that they will suffer too. Of course, with industrial-sized fridges full of ice cream and caviar at their waterfront homes, their leader are happy to wait for a long time.

Ptownswend:

I think many of Trump's staunchest followers admit he is one. They've repeatedly posted messages saying 'Don't listen to Trump. Listen to the experts'.

Wrong way around? Seems to me you have to be a Clinton fan to be demented enough to drink aquarium cleaner or inject yourself with toilet desinfectant.

The guy is a bumbling idiot who speaks before he thinks and who tells lies as part of his nature. He is shallow and utterly incapable of rational thought. He might be able to sell refrigerators to eskimos, but this ability is not what is needed now. 

Americans voted and chose this?

@Bertiewooster,

I am not too sure if Trump could sell refrigerators to the eskimos. Yet, Trump did sell false hopes to many American people and that many of these people have died because of his lack of leadership, common sense, and basic human empathy.

Who in their right mind think that in the midst of a pandemic that has claimed the lives of thousands of people, is the right time for sarcasm? Oh, that's right, Trump is not in his right mind. As such, we shouldn't trust anything he says about either this virus or the economy because whatever actions he will take, is only to further his own interests and to stoke his own ego.

By the way, according to Merriam Webster Dictionary, the word 'sarcasm' means "a sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain,”. So in that sense, Trump wanted to cause Americans pain. What kind of president wishes pain upon their own people?

Or you'd have to be Donald Trump to propose it.

Look, Trump gave it the old college try, but he's just not cut out to be a leader in front of cameras during this crisis. It's good that his people convinced him to step away since it was hurting his image. He needed to go.

He wants to open the economy over the advice of the scientists so it's better to keep him away from them anyway. Now he can spend his full time trying to spin this for his reelection.

Trump took a bunch of weaklings and capitalized on their need for a leader who would attack liberals for them. They had enough sand kicked in their face and Donald came along, recognized their weaknesses, and preyed on them.

Prove it.

Where is Mueller and what happened to the impeachment farce? He’s still the President, there you go. Failed twice.

You said 32% was more than half - prove it.

No, I said, ANY incumbent President that has an approval rating OVER 40% in an election year is in a very good position to win re-election. However, that is NEVER good for any challenger trying to oust an incumbent.

Oh, stop! Even Dr. Fauci said, certain parts of the job industries can and should re-open. Even in my once beautiful home state of California you have being trying to defy the orders of lockdown and want an end to this and this is coming from liberals. Again, this all helps Trump. Hope Newsom is listening.
