US President Donald Trump said today, Saturday, that the damage caused by the closure measures in his country exceeds the damages of the emerging corona virus.
Trump wrote in a tweet: “Quarantine measures in states run by Democrats are actually destroying the lives of many people, and their harm outweighs the damage that may be caused by the Chinese virus itself.”
He added that “cases of infection in California increased despite the lockdown, but Florida and other states did not implement the closure and is in good condition.”
The lockdowns in Democrat run states are absolutely ruining the lives of so many people – Far more than the damage that would be caused by the China Virus. Cases in California have risen despite the lockdown, yet Florida & others are open & doing well. Common sense please!
