Stock up money, dry food, portable energy, meds, vitamins, face masks (N95 or at least 3-layer surgical), hand wash for a MINIMUM of 3 months. Learn how to use face masks, how to NOT rub nose, mouth nor eyes, wear glasses; stop listening to mainstream media; one analyst predicted 65% of the entire population will get it, 1-2% will die. GOOD LUCK.

If you are a Christian, then these verses are for you, "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities." If you are not, "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the… Read more »

Funny how trumpanzees think that we are brainwashed by CNN or MSNBC to think Trump is the equivalent of a drooling crazy uncle at a family BBQ spouting absolute nonsense. No, all any normal person with at least half a brain needs to do is watch his press conferences.

Trump is a great sells man..there is a lot to admire about him but he should stop putting the United States as the out cast and under dog before news conferences, no body has ever doubt our science, trump always says “they have doubt us and then talks about closing borders? The virus has arrived by airplane not by jumping the border..

If it's a 2.5 billion dollar problem and they spend 8.5 then we've lost 6 billion. If it's a 3 billion problem and we spend 2.5 we could lose hundreds of billions in closed factories and thousands of people dead.

Corona virus can spread by sneezing.But, Allah like sneezing. Stop hating Trump and tram but hate Qur'ano virus and pray. It was proven in the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah likes the act of sneezing and dislikes the act of yawning, so if any one of you sneezes and praises Allaah (says “al-hamdu Lillaah”), it is a duty on every Muslim who hears him to say to him, “Yarhamuk Allaah (may Allaah have mercy on you).” As for yawning, it is from… Read more »

The total amount of yearly flu (influenza A and B) deaths are already higher than Coronavirus deaths… The statistic is just the same for all the countries around the world. This is not special success of the U.S.A. mister president…

The doddering Dotard takes an hour to say nothing except to praise himself. USA is in trouble if this goes pandemic. Watch the film of the same name, it has many similarities. Be safe, prepare and hold on.

Where in the HELL is he getting 15 people from? There are 60 on the Johns Hopkins chart plus only a handful of people have been tested. Anyone who listens to him is risking their health and the health of everyone around them. Hasn't anyone told him there are DOZENS or HUNDREDS being monitored but not tested?

Trump answered all questions in a very respectful and intelligent way with appropriate humor mixed in, including self depreciating humor. I can't help but wonder how many of the anti Trump alarmists actually listen to him and how many just listen to other people talk about him.
