President Trump ‘wanted to make light’ of the dangers of the Corona Virus September 10 at 7:19 a.m.
On the dangers of the new coronavirus, President Trump told an interview with an American journalist, “I wanted to make it look light. I didn’t want to cause panic.” Since the opposition party and the Democratic Party of Japan have strongly opposed the situation, the DPJ has said that the risk is extremely low.
The American media reported the audio of a solo interview with President Trump by prominent journalist Bob Woodward and the content of a nearly published book based on it.
In this context, President Trump received a detailed explanation from his aides in late January about the dangers of the new coronavirus, and in a telephone interview with Mr. Woodward on February 7, he said it was “more life-risking than influenza” and was aware of the seriousness.
However, President Trump continued to say at a press conference that the risk was extremely low.
On this, President Trump said in an interview with Mr. Woodward on March 19, “I wanted to make it look light. I didn’t want to cause panic.”
In response to the news, President Trump on September 9 re-emphasized that he “didn’t want to s scared the people and cause panic.”
However, in the United States, criticism has been growing about the administration’s early response to the new coronavirus, and Mr. Biden, the presidential candidate of the opposition Democratic Party of Japan, has caused a stir, with Mr. Biden criticizing “President Trump for telling lies while knowing the threat of viruses and betraying the people.”
