Donald Trump was left speechless.
The President was throwing everything he had to defeat what he calls the “invisible enemy” only to realize there was another problem mushrooming right in his own backyard.
And that happened when Barack Obama just stabbed Trump in the back on the coronavirus with one ugly move.
During a recent Fox News town hall, the President told Americans he was looking to reopen the country’s economy from the coronavirus-induced shutdown by Easter Sunday.
“I give it two weeks,” Trump told Fox News. “I guess by Monday or Tuesday, it’s about two weeks. We will assess at that time and give it more time if we need a little more time. We have to open this country up.”
The need to reopen the economy while balancing public health concerns came to the forefront of every American’s mind when on the same day, a record-setting 3.3 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits and America overtook China and Italy for having the most coronavirus cases in the world.
President Trump understands that tension, which is why he told Fox that reopening the economy by Easter was not etched in stone and that if the social distancing measures needed more time, he would give them more time.
But that did not stop a national freak out on the left and in the fake news media where Democrats and their tag team partners in the corrupt media whipped up scare stories about how the President would kill millions of Americans by lifting all social distancing guidelines this week to meet a marketing gimmick of an Easter “rebirth” for the American economy.
Former President Barack Obama added to this smear campaign with a tweet undermining the President by encouraging Americans to continue to practice social distancing.
“These are the burdens our medical heroes already face in NYC. It’s only going to get harder across the country. Another reason to maintain social distancing policies at least until we have comprehensive testing in place. Not just for our sake—for theirs,” Obama wrote.
This fake news story dominated cable news chatter for days.
But in an interview with fake news CNN, coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci tried to put a stop to the nonsense by repeating the point that any decision the President made would be guided by the data and the facts on the ground.
“I think what the President was trying to do, he was making an aspirational projection to give people some hope,” Fauci explained.
“He’s listening to us when we say we’ve really got to reevaluate it in real-time,” Dr. Fauci added. “And any decision we make has to be based on the data.”
Prominent individuals with massive platforms like former President Barack Obama – whose Twitter account has nearly 115 million followers – should not add to the confusion and panic by undermining the current President of the United States by adding fuel to the fire of a fake news media narrative.
