In Donald Trump’s eyes, he has had the “perfect” presidency. He believes that the things he has done have been above what any other president before him did. He believes that no other president in history can match up to what he has done.
On Monday, he was asked to answer if he believed that a president that was in charge when more American lives were lost than in the Vietnam War should be re-elected.
In his response, Trump claimed that he has done a tremendous job with the coronavirus response, despite not acting quick enough when he was first warned against it.
Trump said the following:
“If you look at what the original projections were, 2.2 million — we’re probably headed to 60,000, 70,000 …we’ve made a lot of good decisions.”
“I think Mike Pence and everyone on the task force has done a fantastic job,” continued Trump, adding that “The press doesn’t want to talk about ventilators anymore.”
.@Olivianuzzi : If a POTUS loses more Americans over six weeks than died in the Vietnam War, does he deserve to be reelected?
