  1. TRUMP one of the greatest Presodents of all time !!….Your country is lucky to have him

  2. Antibodies test, besides quality, but you never tell the whole true. Antibodies test accuracy is subjected to on which after infection one is taking the test, you would only get accurate results once your body antibodies start reacting and working to fight the virus, probably on day 6 – 8 after infections. Don’t blame the producers for antibodies test kit. It’s science

  16. Why are they having Trump leave the press conference? This is very abnormal. A White House Press Briefing without the President present for much of it.

  17. American Samoa better help the people there. Every time they send money there the government officials pocket the money for themselves and their family members.

  18. Count how many times a reporter ask Trump a question and he gave a completely irreverent answer just repeating the same BS

  19. MEAN WHILE THE PRESIDENT IS WORKING VERY HARD AND TIRELESS ,the clowns nanci pelosi and Chuck Schumer THEY ARE TAKING VACATION IN CALIFORNIA BECAUSE THEY DON CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, NOW WE CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE. GOD BLESS OUR GREAT PRESIDENT

  20. Does anyone notice Trumps left eye seems like it has a twitch. Like he can’t handle all these lies that he tells. That he can’t handle so many people against him. Smart people that know the truth. Of how he truly isn’t capable of running this country the way American needs him to . I AM SAD That this country is going through so much . I am sad even if the people that believe in him and are so blind . God please open there eyes and ears and Show them that Trump is not the right person for the Powerfull job. We need him out.

  21. Why is it ok that they are all sitting by each other? Where is the 6 foot rule and no more than 10 people….

  22. AMERICA NEEDS THIS GREAT BRAVE GOOD AND DECENT PATRIOTIC PRESIDENT FOREVER IN THE WHITE HOUSE, THIS COMMANDER IN CHIEF IS NOT A CORRUPT POLITICIANS HE IS SACRIFFYING HIS HOOD WAY OF LIFE ,FIGHTING FOR THE REAL AMERICAN PEOPLE, THE Democrat party IN U.S IS DEAD. IT S INFECTED FULL OF COMUNISTS SOCISLISTS THEY HATE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. SO WE HAVE TO VOTE IN 2020 FOR THIS GREAT LEADER

  23. WHY don't the cameramen, from ANY news outlet, back out to show ANY of the slides these PROFESSIONALS are showing?
    Not one? I don't get it.

  24. Trump does not know his ass from his elbow.

  25. A suspected Covid-19 male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose.

    A young student female nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath.

    "Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"
    Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet."

    He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"

    Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers.

    She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other.
    She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine."

    The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly,

    "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very,
    very, closely:
    "Are – my – test – results – back?”

    Laughter is the best medicine.

    Stay healthy!!!

  26. Run away!!! Come join us in Canada!! 💖

  27. To paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill’ I will fight them on the golf courses, I will fight them on the fast food take away, I will not be defeated as my enemy is a single cell entity’ Sorry Winnie

  28. Which country is the US bombing right now during this crisis ? Those drones ? Shame on them

  29. The Purdue fatman stepped next to Trump when he came out like he's the Vice-Vice President. 😂😂😂

  30. And those isolated people who have died at home alone…….

  31. It’s tremendous incredible so amazing so incredible. Amazing incredible blah blah blah. He’s nothing more than a pep talk fluffer

  32. When is someone going to tell Trump to STOP TREATING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AS IF THEY'RE CHEAP TOYS TO "PLAY" WITH..!!
    Hmm…??

    His actions are irresponsible, self-indulgent and represent an ASSAULT on the health of the American People.

    He should be removed from office, on grounds of NEGLECT OF DUTY, DELINQUENT SELF-INDUGENCE and CRIPPLING EGOMANIA..!!

  33. The President is fighting a virus, who will win?

  34. "waving my hands in the air, 👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋" Trump, you are NOT KING, nor do YOU or will you EVER have FULL AUTHORITY over the UNITED STATES OR THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES!!
    Trump won by the ELECTORAL VOTES, NOT THE PEOPLE!!!
    😎😎😎😎😎

  35. Is he a native English speaker? He sounds like a 10 year old, great, magnificent, incredible, that's roughly his vocabulary. I would have failed english on my verbal exam if I would have talked like that! And I am not a native speaker.

  36. Don't know why Trump goes on about Sweden, when the US has twice as many virus cases than that country has per capita.

  37. What president insights public unrest within a global pandemic, with people scared and many with mental health issues you use Terms such as liberate and under siege.. WTF America ?.
    I'm from New Zealand, our police don't carry side arms but if they encountered a person walking around with automatic firearms our armed defenders would arrest and if not compliant use strick authority. What President would do this…. Place others at risk to enforce what he wants like a child. What a f**k*n embarrassment.

  42. Franklin Graham (Samaritans Purse) had built a portable hospital build in Central Park to help with this Virus. New York got more attention and help than any other City.
