President Trump: “I want to give people hope”…

Yesterday during the white house briefing on the status of the coronavirus, CNN asked President Trump why he wasn’t being more dramatic and emphasizing the potential downsides to the COVID-19 impact on the nation.  President Trump responded:

.

[Hat Tip Carpe Donktum for the video recap]

One of the many things that makes President Trump valuable during this crisis is his non-political authenticity. We can see and feel President Trump’s desire to get through this challenge, hold our people together, and exit even stronger than before.

No decisions are easy and the pressure is enormous; yet inherently most Americans know what President Trump is trying to do is deliver the best possible outcome for our nation.

          Fauci and birx predicted 200,000 deaths over the next 2 weeks with their “new model”. Okay. That’s about 15,000 per day. Then it was 100,000 on the low end. Okay that’s 7,000 per day. They stuck to those numbers. But they always get cheeky and start word parsing games about mitigation. They always cleverly thru Murphy under the bus. Using “his” model. So they have their own version of Neil Ferguson to take the blame. I think POTUS boxed them in. They gave a number, time frame, and a rational. In 2 weeks the results will be in.

          • Maybe I’m mistaken, but I thought those figures were for a longer period of time, and that the Mid-April date was when they expected the peak (highest) deaths per day. (peaking around 4500 that day)

                They just spout off BS numbers that are over the top and don’t align with what’s happening (in the U.S. or anywhere else). Why? Because they can without repercussion.

                I’m sorry let’s get Germany’s key doctors opinion. They aren’t dying and they are not ruining their economy. It let’s talk to Japan’s. Same thing occurring in Japan- low deaths and not on lockdown.

                Their doctors obviously gave sound advice. Birx and Fauci are playing politics.

            Let’s not forget that on average almost 7500 people die in the US every day of the year of various causes. Look for anti-Trumpers to try to add some of these deaths to the Corona Virus death count when their numbers don’t start coming in as high as “expected”.

            • I will be interested to see whether my rough estimation (as a physicist, but still an estimation, using early reported infection and death percentages alone) of 40 to 80 thousand total US covid19 deaths, proves true. When I made it, I fully expected the final number would be at or below the small end (maybe as small as 20,000), but with New York and California acting so badly I don’t know.

              my comment on CTH March 17, showing my simple calculation

              As I have said before, I consider all of the news coverage to be dishonest, because no one is showing a running comparison between this virus’s death count and that of a typical flu. That is ridiculous, especially on the part of Fauci and Brix, the President’s own “experts”. Their own graph shows New York (and one other state, I can’t remember which at the moment) is a wild outlier in the data; all the rest of the states show a very tame “outbreak”, and hence an unjustified “lockdown”.

        I think Democrats who are more middle of the road or intelligent enough to look past the ration of BS they have been fed by the corrupt elite politicians and media are moving to support him. They recognize his authenticity and caring. May of us doubted him but did not doubt his heart. President Trump won me over in the primary and the more I learned the stronger my support. His popularity is rising in the time of crisis because more and more people see it. The veil has been pulled away from the press as they continue their transparent hate. The elite politicians are equally transparent in their motives to ovenerthrow him. President Trump will see the country through this time. We will have new infrastructure, new supply chain, vertical integration in this country, new private medical supply chain, new processes and procedures that are business efficient vs bureaucracy inefficient. This will be the golden age. It is the Fourth Turning, the war is against the elites, the battles are on the internet and across the world in business, and the people will bring us through the winter to a new golden age.

      Because of this plague, people are watching Trumps daily briefings. For us who faithfully support him, we see his great leadership skills and his humanity. This is why we voted for him. For those who never liked him, they are forced to watch his daily briefings for information. These are the people with TDS, who probably never watched him and rely on CNN or MSNBC news anchors who hate him. Hopefully Trumps daily briefings will dispell the ugly and fake myths these liberal stations vomit out. The unjust hate people have for Trump is scary. I can’t imagine having that much hate inside me. When I listen to Trumps briefings I think about his MAGA hope for our nation. In fighting this virus, MAGA is exactly what he was and is talking about. America is a great nation, we will find a cure, and this will pass. It’s an example of why we are so great. Trump fights for us everyday. Every night I pray to God to give him favor to do Gods work and win the next election. Trump is truly great.

    As previously posted here by me, PDJT told a friend of mine at dinner in Trump Tower that he was doing this (running for public office) because he thought he had a chance to make things better for his children and grandchildren. He did not want to spend the rest of his life in luxury without trying to make a difference, after witnessing first hand the undermining of our Republic over the past few decades by our elected representatives selling us out to the globalist interests.

    Friend (from Buffalo) also had experience running for public office and experienced the blood sport of politics and being ” stabbed in the back” by members of your own party, if you happened to be an “outsider” and “rebel” that did not “toe the party line” 100% of the time.

    “The Power of Positive Thinking” was Rev Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s Doctrine.
    ” “Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture … Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.”

    The Trump family worshipped at his church, the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan

    Trump: “.. what he would do is he would bring real-life situations, modern day situations into the sermon. And you could listen to him all day long. When you left the church, you were disappointed that it was over.”

    “Any fact facing us, however difficult, even seemingly hopeless, is not so important as our attitude toward that fact,” Peale wrote. “A confident and optimistic thought pattern can modify or overcome the fact altogether.”

    1.“the optimism bias.” The way we view the future helps shape what it turns out to be. When we view it positively, we reduce anxiety and stress. And we focus on creating the future we envision.
    2. find Hope, even in the worst circumstances & turn our tragedy into a lifeline for others.
    3. prayer is not simply about saying something to God. It is also about saying something to ourselves. It tells us of who we are and what we are called to do. It gives God an opening to into our hearts and minds so God can help use our gifts. It reminds us that God has our back.

      Here is something I wrote a few years ago at a particularly low point in my life.

      Rocks In The Road

      Here I am
      Stumbling, when I should be sailing
      Crawling, when I should be running
      Crying, when I should be laughing

      The road ahead, wide open and smooth
      The goals, so clear and tempting
      The journey, so easy, if I just allow it to be

      EXCEPT

      The rocks I throw in my own road
      Holding me back, slowing me down
      Making difficult the things that should be so easy

      The mural that is the rest of my life
      Still just a blank white wall
      With ghostly outlines traced in places
      A hint of what lies ahead
      Waiting for the color and texture
      That comes with the living of it

      A blank slate
      A white wall
      Except for the rocks
      Thrown there by myself

      HANTA YO
      Clear the way
      Quit creating my own hurdles
      Quit holding myself back

      SEE the picture
      LIVE the colors
      FEEL the texture
      BE ALIVE AGAIN

      The man inside wants out
      Kindness and warmth live here
      Music and laughter live here

      The mural
      Hidden, but still real
      Waiting to be revealed

      Hiding behind the rocks
      The rocks in the road

      original poem by John L. Post
      2-06-2005

      Hidden inside all of us is the power to make our lives better if we just use it!
      Hope all of you have a blessed day. Remember, this too shall pass!

      The other great one is The Magic of Thinking Big, by David J. Schwartz, PhD:

      “Believe Big. The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. Remember this, too! Big ideas and big plans are often easier—certainly no more difficult—than small ideas and small plans.”

      “Action cures fear. Isolate your fear and then take constructive action. Inaction—doing nothing about a situation—strengthens fear and destroys confidence.”

      “Get your advice from successful people. Your future is important. Never risk it with freelance advisors who are living failures.”

      “Dig into it deeper. When you find yourself uninterested in something, dig in and learn more about it. This sets off enthusiasm. Life up everything about you: your smile, your handshake, your talk, even your walk. Act alive. Broadcast good news. No one ever accomplished anything positive telling bad news.”

      Excerpts From: David J. Schwartz. “The Magic of Thinking Big.” Apple Books. https://books.apple.com/us/book/the-magic-of-thinking-big/id917780006

      I suspect PDJT may have read both of these magical books as some point, as their authors’ roots go back over 60 years.

      Everything about Donald J. Trump is as if he is a living, breathing example of this mindset is and can achieve.

      And you can do it, too.

      This hyped-up present crisis is and will be beaten. And quicker than you think.

      I made a post of the Presidential Thread. I am reposting a portion as it seems more appropriate to post here…

      In just a few short years since our Commander in Chief President Trump took over at the helm, our country has steadily gotten back on course, the engines are starting to fire on all cylinders and the barnacles and seaweed are getting scrapped off the hull.

      We are standing by for heavy rolls as we get through this current pandemic. However, virus or no virus, I think we can all agree that our nation is in a far better place than it could be in with someone else at the helm.

      With the “All Hands on Deck” approach of our leadership and all menbers of the crew (us) doing our part, we will weather the storm.

      The other side of the strom is going to be Glorious!

    I always felt he was a great President, while at the same time thinking that his colourful life would always be a mark against him in some way.
    I was wrong.
    Since assuming the job he has not had a single moment of peace.
    Not a single day when, having reached the end of it, he can relax, put his feet up and congratulate himself on a day well spent.
    Everything he has done has been achieved in the face of viscous opposition and slander from not just his opponents and their media toadies, but many in his own party.
    Petty, small, envious people who know in their hearts that he is better than they ever will be and hate him for it.
    After 70-something years of playing the showman Donald John Trump now stands revealed as one of the great men of American history.

    “They” (DS/Globalist) never thought he would put The American People over his success with the economy. “They” placed bets that millions of American people would die from COVID-19 and President Trump would have looked the other way for the almighty dollar.

    “Most Americans inherently know the president is trying to deliver the best possible outcome for our nation.”
    And that’s a problem for a group of people who reside here, ‘squatters’ as it were, who want our country to fall so it can be replaced. Invaders, antifa, globalists pigs (pigs have more manners and compassion for others) people who do not wish to be called Americans. They have totally destroyed their neighborhoods, cities and states and then wipe their feet on our door mats to come destroy our region.
    These are people who are ashamed of America, but it’s not our America they are ashamed of, it’s their America. The part they destroyed by their on hands but never take accountability for their utter failures in life our in Civic duty.
    What happened? How did they get a voice to disrupt? IMHO, they are ignorant feeling driven lovers of self. (How would you explain the number of abortions.) If they one who they serve by their absence of reason and GOD they might understand. Their voice came from wanting to compromise and ‘get along’ instead of demanding accountability from our kids, neighbors, government and especially ourselves. What part of Trump do we loves? I say it’s his drive to hold everyone accountable. What can be achieved when everyone is accountable and working towards a goal? The impossible! And just as ‘inherently’ we all understand that, ‘all’ implies those who love this country and what it represents God and freedom. (And a side note, you cannot have freedom without the other, you make ‘think’ you are free but you only exchange one cell for another.)

    Compare that to the political version, “never let a crisis go to waste”, Saul Alinsky. You know who has been running with this.. and it is disgusting. It is the opposite of hope, it destroys hope.

    It’s very low cost ($20) and could be used NOW, but Dr. Fauci and the Left keep throwing water on the idea. But it is best used BEFORE the patient gets really sick. So any “studies” in the US using ICU patients only will not show great results. Other countries having great success giving it to people RIGHT AWAY!

        Agree with a slight difference: If you listened to the video of Dr. Zelenko explaining the use of his hydrochloroquine cocktail to Rudy Giulani, there’s a slight difference from what you recommend.

        Dr. Zelenko said that if you are YOUNG (under 60) and HEALTHY (no cancer, no underlying disease or health problems) then relax. If young and healthy, when you catch this disease (and you probably will) stay at home, rest, drink a lot of fluids (I’ve read recommendations of green tea elsewhere), and recover for a couple of weeks. You will be fine without seeking medical help in that circumstance.

        Dr. Zelenko recommends going for the medicines, which can have side effects, ONLY if you begin to have difficulty breathing (in which case you may need to be hospitalized) — because the drugs also have side effects. Some people who are immunocompromised or at risk (Dr. Zelenko is missing part of a lung, so he’s vulnerable) will take the medicine for prevention.

      Beth,
      The referenced article makes clear the importance of using HC AZ before dire symptoms appear, not when admitted to the ICU. The statement/order belatedly issued by the FDA practically encourages the regimen to NOT be used until its effectiveness is greatly reduced.
      I view the CDC and FDA foot-dragging on this as an attack on America. It is perhaps the most vile of all Deep State (in)actions, because it not only wrecks our economy, it also threatens our lives.
      Because of recent personal experience, I encourage you to ask your doctor if he will prescribe the drug to you before you are in respiratory distress, or before you are in the hospital. Does he have any assurance of the drugs availability?

Come on, whenever an “expert ” (wall streeters are famous for that ) answer with jargon be suspicious. VSGTRUMP and instincts are right on Hydroq/Zpak. I hope and believe and Fauci is way too attached to HIS strategy to go there. We are talking about saving lives any way possible not which bureaucrat is going to get nominated for a Nobel Prize.

I am in that camp also. 45 days of living like this will absolutely kill a lot of small businesses, even with the loans that are available. People are depressed, anxious and see no light at the end of the tunnel. Rush said what will probably happen is at the end of this “30 days” they will come back and say just do this 2 more weeks and everyone will say okay we can do 2 more weeks. Then at the end of those 2 weeks they will do it again. The power grab by the governors is unprecedented and we will have a hard time wrestling our freedoms back from some of them. Rush is also very down on the models as they never pan out – example – global warming models. Just my opinion from my little limb here at CTH. As Rush would he is the mayor of realville and I agree with him.

      • The tragedy of this time is that there are no true experts advising the masses, certainly no science experts. I have been trying to inform people that “the system is broken, with incompetent science and insane politics” for the last 7 years or more.

        The President is laying back, but showing he has more confidence against the virus than the “experts” do. And he is right; I know, because I am a competent scientist (and one who caught the bug just last week, and beat it with continual dosing with echinacea capsules, in just 2 or 3 days, with no apparent sickness throughout that time), not one of these “specialists” who know only to follow their consensus theories and “modelling” methods (which have all been shown to be worthless, in so-called global “climate science” — I don’t know when scientists mis-learned these false modelling methods, but it is a REAL pandemic, in science).

        So you can look forward to the time when it becomes clear that I, the President, and many other competent observers, are shown to be right and the vaccination specialists wrong (they are wrong mainly to think only anti-viral vaccination is the solution, and only secondarily in their expected death numbers, which are at least a factor of 2 to 3 too high — although I expect them to cover themselves, by claiming their quarantine impositions did the trick, suppressing those numbers, rather than simply their incompetent prognostications).

        People need to support and defend their own immune systems, as I have, not wait in vain for a vaccination “cure” that totally neglects both the individual’s immune system and the intelligence to treat him/herself.

    Through all my life’s battles, this has always given me peace. Especially the line about the world is unfolding as it should.

    Desiderata By Max Ehrmann

    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible without surrender
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even the dull and the ignorant;
    they too have their story.
    Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
    they are vexations to the spirit.
    If you compare yourself with others,
    you may become vain and bitter;
    for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

    Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
    it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
    Exercise caution in your business affairs;
    for the world is full of trickery.
    But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
    many persons strive for high ideals;
    and everywhere life is full of heroism.

    Be yourself.
    Especially, do not feign affection.
    Neither be cynical about love;
    for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
    it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years,
    gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
    But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
    Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    be gentle with yourself.

    You are a child of the universe,
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be,
    and whatever your labors and aspirations,
    in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
    it is still a beautiful world.
    Be cheerful.
    Strive to be happy.

    I was so happy to hear President Trump say “I’m a cheerleader for the country”. We’ve heard him say it before, but now many more people have heard it. It’s a phrase I think about often. The Bible says “Hope deferred makes the heart sick. But desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” This I need and through God’s great mercy, this we have. Thank you, God, for giving us this man at this moment in time! 🙏🏼🇺🇸👍🏻🙏🏼🇺🇸

    Retired Magistrate here: President Trump is doing what we all should do; just take the day that we have and make the most of it. There is no guarantee that we will have another one so let’s make the most of the day that we have.

    Here in Central Ohio we have another cloudy chilly day. However, the flowers are blooming, forsythia is lovely, grass is starting to green, bluebirds are out and Easter is coming! Churches may be closed; however, that does not stop the fact that HE is Risen; HE is Risen Indeed!

    This is the day that the Lord has made so rejoice and be glad in it.

      True, but where I am, my daughter, who needs to sell her house to get out of debt, is facing a disappearing market, and my 90 year old mother, on lockdown in a senior living facility, was refused permission to leave the premises to see her heart doctor. I’m a Christian, but the here and now needs fixing fast.

    I love Trump but continue to be frustrated by his succumbing to the “experts” in this case rather than, as he done in most things, trusted his instincts and the American people. I’m sorry, but I won’t have much hope until I hear that were FREE to got about our business, the mortality rate be damned. Sounds heartless, but for me, who doesn’t believe we’ll jump from 4000 to 100000 deaths, or that, if true, it is worth the enormous collateral damage, its true.

      paulashley — yesterday a retired doctor laid out a logical case for how this disease is spreading (through healthcare workers who are desperately needed, and who might not work if they were quarantined away from family).

      I’d like to see some thinking about how healthcare workers carrying contagion from work to supermarket to home etc. might best be served so that that route of contagion could be diminished. This thought had begun to occur to me while watching a TV snippet of a healthcare worker hugging her little daughter at home… and it’s what makes sense, so despite the difficulties, we ought to be thinking about this problem and how to solve it while serving healthcare workers and their needs.

      Sooner or later we will probably all catch this disease, for better or for worse. The idea is to slow the spread and keep people out of the hospitals (using Dr. Zelenko’s method which despite its success, is being suppressed by govt leadership except our President)

      We have, as a majority of citizens, been “succumbing to experts” against common sense for many decades now. As soon as online education became available, it should have become available to everyone who wanted it, instead of pushing all the young people to take on enormous debts (instead of buying first homes, beginning families etc). No no, the “experts” have pushed for everyone to buy into expensive educations in expensive dormitories which, by the way, tend to spread expensive, temporarily disabling diseases like mononucleosis, bedbugs and other nasties.

      WHY have we deferred to the “experts” when clearly they had their own interests in mind, not ours? This needs to stop. We need to defend ourselves. Not by attacking and punishing the selfish, but by walking away, just like our President negotiated better trade deals with China.

    President Trump stands as a representative of the United States of America, with our interests in mind.

    He has the moral strength to stand against unimaginably powerful forces and act with restraint and deliberation.

    He is dedicated to fairness and the prosperity of his fellow man.

    He has used his power to enrich others, not merely aggrandize himself or flatter his own ego.

      I wish I wouldn’t have written “merely” in that last sentence – Yes, President Trump has made his surroundings magnificent, and could be seen as self-promoting.

      But I think, now that we see his true heart, we can succeed in separating Trump the man from Trump the brand understand the strategy which prompted the self-promotion.

    I watched President Trump last night on OAN talk about feeling like a war President fighting an invisible enemy unleashed on the world by China. That analogy to me is appropriate, we as a nation are a war. What I believe is that the $2 trillion stimulus should be used not only to send out checks but to cover the costs incurred by civilians injured during this viral war. To me rather than wasting money sent to Pelosi’s pet projects like the Kennedy Center that money to should go to anyone infected by the Covit-19 to reimburse all out of pocket costs. The Feds should pay or reimburse civilians for all out of pocket costs for: hospitalization, lab costs, Doctor fees, drug costs, rehabilitation costs and all funeral costs. Why should any civilian inflicted with this horrible virus be destroyed financially having to pay for hospital costs that could run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars if they are hospitalized, incubated and on a ventilator? Then those families that have lost a loved to the virus having to pay not only for hospital costs then the costs of funeral is a financial burden most can’t afford. We need a Marshall Plan for our own citizens in this viral war. We as a nation shouldn’t allow anyone or any family be bankrupted, destroyed financially because they got infected! IMHO rant over. Godspeed President Trump!

      We literally rebuilt Europe and Japan after WW2 while having to reorganize our own economy. We should not be so timid about recovering from this attack from within and orchestrated by China.

      The nuclear age has made conventional war with nuclear weapons a lose lose scenario and what we are witnessing is a war being financed by our enemies from within using our own money. There are many ways to fight a war and we are experiencing a war right now and should consider the other side combatants.

    For treepers who have been harsh on steve Bannon, I think his hardline shut it all down for 30 days is ultimately going to be proven out to have been the smartest strategy.

    If this lingers for weeks after April 30, Bannon was the only one talking shut it all down – hard, if you’re going to go through hell , don’t tip toe approach.

      Yesterday one of the Treepers asked us to think about one of our primary sources of contagion after travelers brought the disease to our communities: our cherished and respected healthcare workers are leaving work carrying the contagion with them all over the community. It’s almost impossible not to. And, many of the healthcare workers are becoming ill with the disease, also.
      Bannon didn’t address this, and it’s a difficult problem to confront although common sense tells us that quarantining the hospitals and hospital staff may be necessary. How could this be done? Would medical staff be willing to do this?
      A few days ago I read a Facebook post from a former coworker whose mother was saying that this is a time when she really wishes her grown children and their spouses lived in the same home. He responded LOL she wouldn’t want to be exposed to what he is carrying on his clothes and body when he comes home every day. He was thinking about the problem. Most of the rest of us, aren’t. How can we handle this? What incentive for isolating the hospital environments, would be worth it for the healthcare providers we desperately need?

    May I suggest that PDJT order that the malaria drug and Z pack be made available to the 4,000 sailors of the carrier Roosevelt, which is practically disabled at Guam. From the anecdotal studies, I would expect results quickly which the media couldn’t hide, try as they might.

    Negative Jim Acosta gives us the perfect contrast to hopeful President Trump. People can see the vile mean spirited Jim Acosta representing those who are as sick as Acosta and those who see solutions for an inevitable end. Most as does Trump, see a greater stronger America as America has never been in its glorious history.

    World peace and prosperity is a realistic reasonable expected outcome by those who have hope. I see those as Jim Acosta as a vivid representation of what no American patriot wants to be like or be among us. Jim Acosta and those as him are a fly in your glass of milk,

    So didn’t Teva and Sandoz alone donate over 35 million tablets of hydroxychloroquine the other week to the US?

    So if there are 200,000 Americans in the ENTIRE country who tested positive for Corona and the hydroxychloroquine treatment is 5 days then why not provide ALL 200,000 with the drug NOW?

    This works out to just 1,000,000 pills necessary to treat all of them.

    Why not choke and crush the CV in these people hard and fast and wouldn’t that fact and stat alone inspire millions more that we can and are beating this?

    And there is still plenty in reserve to treat and new cases.

    Maybe an EO requiring anyone who tests positive immediately gets hydroxychloroquine, z-pack and zinc cocktail.

    Stop the idiot governors who seem to have different motives on CV.

    Sometimes in my 57 years of life, I see things line up, maybe during or often after, and think “wow, that was pretty amazing how it all worked out”. This current situation is making me feel this way again.

    I have my doubts this virus is as bad as they are trying to make us believe. That doesn’t matter though at this point because here we are all locked down and destroying the greatest economy we’ve ever had.

    I cannot imagine anybody else leading us through this fight. President Trump is connected to Joe and Jane six pack better than any leader anywhere. Ever. And he’s positive, uplifting and amazingly smart. When you see the love for him from Americans it’s because he is genuine. He truly loves our country and We The People. It shows more than ever right now. I am so grateful he is our President. I hope more people are seeing how fortunate we are and vote accordingly in November.

    Thank you Sundance and your team and thanks to my fellow Treepers for the comradery.

      I know someone who met President Trump before he became President (during a Miss America pageant, he has been involved with the Miss Mississippi for many years). He stated the the President was very personable and remembered his name and state he was from when presenting him an award (for his participation in the pageant) almost a week later. If people don’t get him after listening to that clip, i don’t think they will ever get it him. He loves our country, praying for his re-election.

    Every President (even Obama and media) before President Trump went before the people to present a positive message and “inspire” folks to preserve. This has to be the first time I have ever seen in the history of the US where a political party and the media have championed the cause of “the disaster” and (the enemy) its perpetrator “China Inc.”.

    I don’t want to include a link to FB here. I don’t know how to attach a pic here. That said, this is from “Donald Trump is my President” page.
    Powerful Stuff….
    “Just stop scrolling for a minute and look at this photo this is NOT a political post. Can you imagine the weight this man is feeling right now? When he signed up for this role (without pay) he did it for us…Americans. He didn’t do it for the fame or glory, he had all that. He was willing to take on whatever, but the magnitude of what we’re currently experiencing has got to be paralyzing. And to some, NOTHING he does is ever right or good enough.
    Do you ever wonder how he must be dealing with it all? When his head finally hits the pillow at night after press conferences and meetings, constantly trying to defend himself and protect our country at the same time…does he break down from the pressure?
    Is he scared and confused?
    Is he even able to sleep?
    Can he shut his mind off at all?
    Does he lay there and talk to God all night praying for strength and answers?
    He is, after all, a human being who is hardworking and has feeling like all of us.
    Some of you complain like crybabies if you know so much and can do better go take on his responsibilities
    Whether he’s making you proud or not, look at this photo and ask God to soften your heart just a litte bit and lift this man up in prayer. He needs them right now more than ever. He is carrying the weight of OUR country on his shoulders and I don’t think anybody could be doing any better of a job than he is currently 🙏🏼❤️
    And please, if you don’t have anything nice to say, there’s NO NEED to comment…just keep scrolling.
    This is about togetherness. This is about staying united.”

      This is why IMHO , the daily press briefings are so important.
      When the quarantined population who can watch the whole presser, unfiltered. Hopefully think, realize that PDJT truly loves this country and the forgotten deplorables. The elites, in their bubble unfortunately probably never will give up their talking points.
      Again Thank you for putting into words what has gone through my head multiple times.
      A side notes most Presidents after three years age very much, PDJT in my opinion (IMO) has NOT, or even appears younger, if that could be possible. 🤔🤔🤗

    In Philadelphia there were 351 homicides in 2019. There were stories about it, but the 10 deaths from the Wuhan virus in Philadelphia is getting much, much more press. There are only 63 deaths (at this time) in PA from the Wuhan Virus and in the eastern part of the State the last customer I saw at work was the 3/10/20. So 3 weeks. Twenty one days and no end in sight.

    The gun violence isn’t stopping now either. It’s just taking a backseat to the Wuhan Virus.
