Donald Trump Jr. explained to Laura Ingraham on Thursday that the deaths from COVID-19 have dropped to “almost nothing.” Junior said this on a day of record-breaking new cases, when almost 1,000 people died a COVID death.
“I went through the CDC data, because I kept hearing about new infections, but I was like, ‘Why aren’t they talking about this?'” Trump Jr. said. “Oh, because the number is almost nothing. Because we’ve gotten control of this thing, we understand how it works. They have the therapeutics to be able to deal with this.”
While over 228,000 Americans have died from COVID, Trump Jr.’s father holds potential superspreader rallies where there is little social distancing and mask-wearing.
“With the fake news, everything is COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID,” Mr. Trump said in a rally in Nebraska earlier this week. “I had it. Here I am, right?”
