COVID-19 Fallout: US Was Attacked, This Wasn’t Just The Flu, Says Trump
Washington: Keen to reopen the country but still not in a position to do so, a frustrated Donald Trump has said that the country was “attacked.”
The COVID-19 global pandemic has killed 47,600 people in the USA and infected over 8.5 million.
“We were attacked. This was an attack. This wasn’t just the flu, by the way. Nobody has ever seen anything like this, 1917 was the last time,” Trump said during his news conference at the White House on Wednesday.
He was responding to a question about the growing US debt following the government’s multi-trillion dollars stimulus package to help people and businesses in distress.
“We have no choice. Do we have a choice? I’m always concerned about everything. We had to fix this problem,” he said. “We had the greatest economy in the history of the world… Better than China, better than any place,” he said.
“We built it in the last three years and then one day, they came and they said you have to close it. Now, we’re going to open it again and we’re going to be just as strong or stronger but you have to spend some money to get it back open,” he said.
