According to Donald Trump, the coronavirus will be going away without the need for a vaccine and everything will go back to normal.
Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump claimed that COVID-19 will “go away” and “we’re not going to see it again.”
“I feel about vaccines like I feel about tests,” said Trump. “This is going to go away without a vaccine, it’s gonna go away, and we’re not going to see it again, hopefully, after a period of time. You may have some flare-ups.”
Trump’s statements were seen as irresponsible and dangerous.

Trump himself is a national emergency. We need the CDC to develop a treatment plan for trumpism & FEMA to rid us of the damage from hurricane Trump.

Seeing how he is set against testing, WHY should HE to be tested EVERYDAY? When no one else can get one.
