  • Trump Ignored Intelligence Warnings About Pandemic Since December



    After China reported the outbreak of a new coronavirus in December, U.S. intelligence agencies repeatedly warned the Trump administration in classified messages about the potentially devastating threat, The Washington Post reported Friday. Yet President Donald Trump largely ignored the warnings and delayed action that might have slowed the spread of the COVID-19 disease, according to the newspaper.

    Intelligence reports warned that China initially appeared to be minimizing the danger of the virus but that the U.S. would be wise to prepare for a likely pandemic. Yet Trump shrugged off the intelligence and repeatedly assured the public that coronavirus was nothing to worry about.

    Now, as cases of the illness and its death toll mount in the U.S., Trump is insisting he thought the problem was “urgent” right from the start and that he “felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.”

    Intelligence agencies “have been warning on this since January,” a U.S. official who had access to reports given to Congress and Trump officials told the Post.

    “Donald Trump may not have been expecting this, but a lot of other people in the government were — they just couldn’t get him to do anything about it,” the official said. “The system was blinking red.”

      From the State of the Union address...

      “Protecting Americans’ health also means fighting infectious diseases. We are coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the coronavirus outbreak in China. My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.”

        Politicizing the worst disaster in the history of the country is politics as usual for the Democrats.. You cant get any lower than that. They are the lowest form of life on earth and will stop at nothing to rip the country to shreds, even during this crisis. No morals. No ethics. No principles. Liberal Democrats are the scum of the earth.

            Didn't you post an early press report about the coronavirus? Doesn't Trump ignore his briefings, even though they have been 'dumbed down'?

            Those earlier intelligence briefings that triggered the senators stock sell off, they likely were about the dangers of the pandemic and how unprepared were are.

            Do you really think everyone was as dumb as Trump and dismissing the coming Pandemic? The intelligence agencies worldwide would have been reporting on the dangers.

            Meanwhile, Trump is out front lying, claiming it's all under control and wasting time while the virus spreads among us.

            He's still wasting time and not getting industries moving on emergency production of all the assets we are lacking; and testing is still slow.

            There will be a closer look at this when we the virus is really under control.

                Yeah, too bad he didn't do that.

                While we still had a chance to contain the virus, he spent weeks in "nothing to see here" mode.

                  This is what this unnamed intel source is claiming. That while they were impeaching the president, they also were "flashing red" signals of a pandemic.

                  Sure!

                  I am sure they will label him a whistleblower now lol!

                  The people who actually believe this will believe anything from an unnamed source.

                  Too bad the rest of the country isnt falling for it anymore.

                    All Trump has to say is, "I knew this was a pandemic before anybody else knew and took drastic action immediately!" And now the Trump Cult all repeat it like mynah birds. Whether or not it is true has no bearing at all. It's like living in NK.

                        “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter. “The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

                        Today:
                        "I wish they could have told us earlier about what was going on inside," Trump said during a briefing on the federal government's coronavirus response. "We didn't know about it until it started coming out publicly. "China was very secretive and that's unfortunate."

                        In other words, exactly what the OP report stated.

                          Sleepy Joe was crying about Trump cancelling flights from China and restrictions on Europe.

                          Give me a break.

                          Did Biden check into a nursing home? Where the hell is Joe?
