Trump “Downplaying The Virus” Doesn’t Move The Needle

A new quote from Donald Trump has many people upset. President Trump agreed to numerous interviews with journalist, Bob Woodward. Woodward had previously published a book about the Trump administration. For his 2nd book, the President agreed to participate.

During the interview, the President was recorded saying that he downplayed the severity of the COVID-19 virus. Trump continued to say that he was trying to not cause a panic with Americans.

Tony Katz takes a look at the quotes and explains that while it was a poor idea for Trump to agree to this interview, it doesn’t move the needle when it comes to the 2020 election.
