Doctor In White House ‘Propaganda’ Video Fires Back At Trump

Adrian Ovalle

Among the physicians mentioned in a White House video derided as “propaganda” by critics of President Donald Trump is protecting himself– and providing a mea culpa for his coronavirus forecast.

Trump on Monday flaunted a campaign-like video of media figures discussing the COVID-19 risk, declaring they “minimized” the danger.

One clip included CBS News factor Dr. David Agus anticipating on Feb. 8 that “coronavirus is not going to cause a major issue in the United States.”

However Agus, a teacher at the University of Southern California’s medical school, responded on Twitter quickly later that he was speaking based upon what he had actually been outlined the country’s capability to test for the infection and capability to quarantine the contaminated:

Lots of (inc @POTUS) have actually discussed that on Feb 8 on @CBSThisMorning I stated I didn’t believe #CoronaVirus would be a significant problem in the United States, as I was informed we had appropriate infection screening & & would quarantine those contaminated & & manage the infection prior to it had the ability to scare the nation.

We have the best public health teams in the world. I was incorrect to accept this as truth, and have actually discovered to question not trust.

Those capabilities did not exist; coronavirus tests guaranteed by Trump and others on his team never ever emerged, holding up the effort to track the infection by weeks or longer.

Trump’s video montage recommended that media figures were minimizing the danger while the president was acting.

In reality, Trump was going to campaign rallies, playing golf and minimizing the danger himself in his public declarations in spite of being alerted by specialists and assistants about the immediate need for action.

The president stated on Jan. 22 that coronavirus was “totally under control,” on Feb. 10 anticipated it’ll “go away in April” and on Feb. 26 stated the variety of cases “within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”
