America has become the new epicenter for the COVID-19 epidemic leaving behind China from where the virus got originated. The first case in America was detected on January 20 and now it has infected 466,299 people in the U.S and across all 50 states. Nearly 16,700 people have died as a result of the coronavirus. Question is being rased on the Trump administration about their way of handling the epidemic which leads to such large scale infection spread in the country.
About the video that is circulating:
Trump has always had a problem with the media as he has accused media of spreading fake news about him and running a fake agenda against him. He was again on a target of social media as his video was circulating on social media with claims like that Donald Trump is asking the people of America to come out and vote despite the coronavirus pandemic. The video shows Donald Trump saying that people have to go out and vote on November 8. He said that he didn’t care that it didn’t matter how sick people are and also whether they are going to die from the disease but he said he wants everyone to get out and vote and in the end said even if the people die ‘We love you and we will remember you always.’
What’s the truth about the video:
Though the remark shown in the video is made by Donald Trump, the only difference is that the remark was not made during the 2020 pandemic but it was made earlier during a campaign event in November 2016. The video is of Nevada where Donald Trump was doing a campaign for the presidential election on Nov. 6, 2016. The video also went viral in November 2016. Trump was actually urging his supporters to vote no matter how worse the situation is back in 2016.
