Donald Trump appears to have created a high bar for Coronavirus' deaths.
Researchers whose work Trump used to reach the 100000-240000 figure say they never said the figure would be this high.

Trump appears to be playing politics with the pandemic issue again. If lots of people die (but the figure is less than 100k or 240k) Trump may "declare victory".
The CDC director and even Mike Pence think Trump is full of shit:
Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the vice president’s office have similarly voiced doubts about the projections’ accuracy, the three officials said.

Fauci quoted the model. He owns it.

You either decide to not present the far reaching models, or you do. If his intention when choosing that format on CNN was to create a soundbyte, he succeeded.

I find it odd that he would be that carefree with numbers of lives while suggesting you shut the country down forever until you have a completely approved vaccine. All while lives are at risk and they want to try certain options, even if not fully proven to be effective or even safe as yet.

Do you have a quote of Trump saying that the 100k to 240k numbers are "likely"? I can't view your link without a subscription.

Hey idiot. Trump didn't project that. You started a thread on this bullshit? Get the fuck outta here.

Maybe Trump got a message from above. 200,000 blue state heathens will soon be sent where the heat is intolerable and the head man in red carries a pitchfork.

Italy is leveling out at 13,000 deaths and we're
currently at 6000 deaths.

I'd say 100,000 is not a very plausible number.

Its a model done by MIT and their medical pandemic team. They indicated that doing nothing and letting this thing run wild would have resulted in 2.2 million dead here in the US. With mitigation the range was 100,000 to 240,000.

Exactly. Little pie-hole pyetro posts nothing BUT BS. THIS is what raging TDS can do to someone. Very sad, but very preventable.

These models put it anywhere between 200,000 to 2.2 million worst case.

More than a dozen researchers predicted how the US's coronavirus outbreak will end. They estimated nearly 200,000 people could die by the end of the year.

Sure it is, if it hits the West Coast homeless as expected.

Pelosi has her fingers crossed.
