In what has become a daily occurrence at the White House press briefings, President Trump had to fend off baseless accusations from a left wing reporter. This time that he hasn’t taken the coronavirus outbreak seriously, causing families to become sick.
PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor told Trump that she knew people who became infected with the virus because they saw the President didn’t “have a mask on,” so they didn’t take precautions.
“They went to a funeral in mid-March and they said mainly because the president wasn’t taking it seriously, he said if the president had a mask on, if he was saying we should stay home, that I would have stayed home,” Alcindor claimed, adding “family members were sick because they were listening to you. Are you concerned that downplaying the virus may be got people sick?”
