According to U.S. media reports, President Trump still talked about his defeat in the U.S. presidential election more than a month ago on Wednesday as usual at a time when the number of deaths and hospitalizations in the United States reached a new high.
Yet the cumulative death toll from the coronavirus in the U.S. has exceeded 300,000 when he made a series of false statements about large-scale “election fraud”.
According to an article published on the website of the American magazine Mother Jones, more than two-thirds of the 729 tweets Trump tweeted between November 3 and December 16 were about his attempt to reverse the election defeat through unfounded allegations and lawsuits of “election fraud”.
The situation. The pandemic (on his Twitter) is just a small episode. Four percent of the tweets were about vaccines, only two percent mentioned the novel coronavirus, and he made no mention at all that COVID-19 caused huge deaths in the United States, nor did he encourage Americans to take precautions to protect themselves or others from infection.
November 16, he posted more than a dozen tweets about the recent election defeat (similar to “I won the election!”). After that, the news that he boasted about the effectiveness of the Modner vaccine boosted the U.S. stock market.
“Those great ‘historians,’ remember, this will end the pandemic, it’s all happening during my tenure,” he tweeted. This was followed by a quick Trump attack on America’s allies: “European countries are unfortunately being hit hard by the coronavirus.”
Later, Trump tweeted more to overturn the victory of President-elect Biden of the United States.
And since the outbreak entered the deadliest period in the United States on December 1, Trump has only mentioned the novel coronavirus three times on Twitter.
There are two tweets about pushing for children back to school. Another tweet was that his lawyer Rudy Giuliani tested positive for COVID-19.
The article said that from the initial denial of the risk of the novel coronavirus to the hint earlier this fall that the death toll in states controlled by the Democratic Party of the United States should not be counted, it is not new for Trump to try to downplay the epidemic.
The tweet from Trump, who has been closest to notice of the impact of the coronavirus on the United States in the past six weeks, was published on November 21.
In that tweet, he sought to downplay the number of deaths from the coronavirus, claiming that the media did not mention that “the number of deaths after contracting the virus is (far smaller than before).”
The article pointed out that in less than a month, Biden’s election victory will be confirmed (again), when an estimated 50,000 Americans will die of the novel coronavirus. But so far, Trump has not admitted this.
