Trump wants 'packed churches' and economy open again on Easter despite the deadly threat of coronavirus
President Trump's remarks came as more states imposed extreme measures to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
In a second interview with Fox that aired Tuesday afternoon, Trump said he offered the holiday as a deadline because “Easter’s a very special day for me.”
“Wouldn’t it be great to have all the churches full?” Trump asked. “You’ll have packed churches all over our country … I think it’ll be a beautiful time.”
“Obviously Trump is not rooted in reality,” said Dr. Tina Tan, a board member of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and a staff member at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
“This is the making of a major public health disaster. I am not sure where he is getting his information from, but it is extremely flawed,” Tan said.
Easter is April 12. There is no way that is going to happen, and it is just plain irresponsible to suggest it could happen.
The man is delusional. Seriously delusional. Not just delusional, he's a danger to public health.
If Trump keeps pumping out disinformation, there will eventually be a severe backlash.
I can answer the doctor's question of where Trump gets his information. Inside his pointy, stupid, ignorant head. That's where. He hears little voices.
"I am a super genius!"
