Donald Trump claimed China was ‘number one’ in coronavirus deaths despite reported totals coming from the both countries.
Trump made the assertion at his coronavirus press briefing Saturday and said China, which has reported 4,632 coronavirus deaths, actually has more fatalities because of the virus than the US, which has reported 38,779 deaths as of Saturday.
‘We’re not number one. China’s number one. Just so you understand,’ the president said.
‘China’s number one by a lot. It’s not even close. They are way ahead of us in terms of deaths. It’s not even close. You know it. I know it. They know it. But you don’t want to report it. Why? You’ll have to explain that. Someday I’ll explain it.’
Owen exposes those on the left and in the MSM that are actually trying to blame Trump for coronavirus instead of the communist Chinese government.
Trump’s claims came right after he began his briefing by saying the US has ‘has produced better health outcomes than any other country, with the possible exception of Germany.’
