Donald Trump did not appear at his daily press conferences on Saturday after he was advised that his appearances were hurting his reelection chances. But that didn’t stop him from shutting his mouth.
Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to attack Democrats over an ad that uses his own words against him. During his rant, Trump claimed that there will soon be a “miracle” end to the coronavirus.
According to the president, “The Do Nothing Democrats are spending much of their money on Fake Ads. I never said that the CoronaVirus is a ‘Hoax’, I said that the Democrats, and the way they lied about it, are a Hoax. Also, it did start with ‘one person from China’, and then grew, & will be a ‘Miracle’ end!

We’re not sure what “miracle end” Trump is talking about. The number of coronavirus cases continues to skyrocket and people are dying every day.
People on Twitter decided to call him out. Here are some of the best responses:
Trump cannot revise history to his own liking. For months, Trump downplayed the coronavirus pandemic and kept saying “it’s just the flu, bro.” He wanted to keep the economy going because the Dow Jones and his re-election mattered more to him than the lives of the American people.

loving this message of unity and bipartisanship on a day when over 52 thousand Americans have died, mr president sir. I have no idea why people are calling you an unfeeling ghoul who is unable to rise to the task at hand and who needs to resign and let someone capable take over

You said the Coronavirus is a hoax. So stop lying about your lie.

Here's Trump infamous hoax clip from Feb 28- this was before even one American died. Trump also slammed the media that night for being in "hysteria mode." The Dems and media were warning that the virus was more serious than Trump was taking it. Over 52,000 now dead. What HOAX?! pic.twitter.com/jm5CuZSBMC

Except you did say that.
52,000 Americans died in one month. Get TF off Twitter and come up with a strategy and plan!https://t.co/OZyVHiQFWY

You said it was a hoax, you said it would go away, you said people should inject themselves with Lysol.
Maybe you should just keep quiet, asshole.

If you had closed air traffic between Europe in the United States a few weeks before you did, (March 12th) all those deaths in New York could’ve been avoided.
Those extra deaths are now on you.

50,000 dead Americans is a “miracle” to you?

Everything Trump said here is a lie.
– He did say it was a hoax.
– It didn't start with one person from China. Most cases in New York City came from Europe.
– There will not be a miracle end, unless tens of thousands of lives lost is considered a miracle.
