Trump, who is running for reelection in November, initially downplayed the threat posed by the coronavirus before taking action to mitigate its spread. His approval rating initially rose, but as the virus hammered the economy and more Americans became infected, views on how he has handled the outbreak have taken a negative turn.

  1. WTH does MIke Pompeo have to do with COVID-19? He's a war monger–wanting wars in the Middle East and in Venezuela. He's a very bad person.

  2. Pompeo is a TERRIBLE actor🤣🤣

  3. 35:30 !?😫🤒 he's always blaming others for things He does too…

  4. A lot of ppl on here are worse than the media

  5. They are leading the lamb to slaughter🤷‍♂️ we tried telling yall, may the odds be forever in your favor✌

  6. ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. QUITE BLAMING. OWN UP! !!! YOU SAID THAT THE UNITED STATES ONLY HAD 15 , WE WEREN'T TALKING ABOUT HOW MANY WOMEN THAT YOU HAD FELT UP .

  7. This type of President we got as womanizer. He is such liars that India government didn’t want to give him medicine because he demands with his sacrifice and limiting to only for their citizens. Now he says he still get medicine from India what a liars and before says from Israel and now people keeping dying or dead and no medicine. Ask Pentagon his military should have it why hide those information and approval for medical doctors to saving lives.

  8. QUIT BLAMING CHINA, YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR AMERICA.

  9. Other possible changes. strategic sinks in hall ways of hospitals so nurses do not need to walk to wash hands.

    – public bathrooms with only hands free taps.
    – removal of all air dryers for bathrooms and garbage can both inside and outside bathrooms.
    – cash registers with UV lights in them to cut down and kill some viruses.

    – copper put in the content of new door knobs or whatever it is they use to make them anti-viral. The same for other handles.
    – separate areas for respiratory illness in hospitals in each area. Emergency with plastic separations.

    – hospitals to give out/offer zinc lozenges when a patient comes in with respiratory issues and a small ginger-ale. to aid pre-treatment.
    – hospital or doctors office to offer and require a mask at the desk if someone does not have one and has a possible respiratory problem.
    – Airplanes to be deloused with fog spray each flight (before other cleaning), & subways etc. for viruses and then ventilated.

    – Oranges to be washed before shipping, they have a nasty Mould/fuz that can get you sick fast. causing sickness in the workplace and home.

    -grocery stores to have a return pile and a supply pile of carts and baskets and return carts/handles must be sprayed before being put back into supply.

    What other things could be done?? what is a reasonable expectation?? and what is most helpful??

  10. We just keep being lied to.This viral disease will continue in waves. Immunity may last for a year, then you’re at risk again. We have to create a sanitized touch-free society. We’ll all need to wear cute militarized burkas, not just women in the Middle East. Damage control is best we can hope for now. A radical new plan for living is needed going forward – better nutrition, and wellness is only hope. Eating diseased, immune compromised sick factory farmer animals can’t continue. Cheap processed non-food like white bread, that causes obesity, needs abolished. At risk populations in poverty need state of the art healthcare too. A better treatment for pneumonia is needed for now. A whole generation will lose grand parents.
