    Trump Says 'Nobody' Knew Pandemic Was Coming. His Adviser Warned Of It In January.

    President Donald Trump said repeatedly in March that “nobody” could’ve predicted a crisis at the scale of the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc across the globe.



    “Nobody knew there’d be a pandemic or an epidemic of this proportion,” Trump said March 19. A week later, he reiterated that “nobody would have ever thought a thing like this could have happened.”

    But according to reports in The New York Times and Axios on Monday, at least one top official in Trump’s own administration sounded the alarm ― in late January and then again in February ― about the potentially catastrophic impacts of the virus that causes COVID-19 on the United States.

    In a Jan. 29 memo about the coronavirus addressed to the National Security Council, Peter Navarro, President Trump’s trade adviser, warned that the “risk of a worst-case pandemic scenario should not be overlooked,” the Times reported. The disease could kill up to half a million Americans, Navarro warned in the document, and cost the U.S. trillions of dollars if no action was taken to contain the virus.

    The idiots including the ones at DU keep posting this showing that they either have comprehension problems or are deliberately misunderstanding what President Trump said.

    “Nobody knew there’d be a pandemic or an epidemic of this proportion,
    The KEY words being OF THIS PROPORTION. The jack*sses are trying to claim that he is saying that no one knew the coronavirus pandemic was imminent and that therefore he didn't know.

    Many people and medical groups have talked about the possibility of a huge epidemic and there has been preparation for one, however no matter how much you plan for one, since we've had no experiences of one of this proportion the preparation is based on theory and what people imagine would be encountered. And the preparations have been based on this. We will learn much from this experience and will be better prepared ....... unless the Democrats don't because doing so would be racist or xenophopic or they think that giving more people welfare is more important than buying supplies for the stockpile.

    However the Jack*sses are claiming President Trump didn't do anything to prepare or that he is claiming he didn't know it was coming and both of those are a LIE.

    While the Jack*ss Democrats were only concerned about impeachment he and those he was working with were already working on preparing for it.

    President Trump, his administration and the professionals they're working with did.........
    JAN 7: CDC established a coronavirus incident management system, two days before China announced the outbreak.

    JAN 21: The CDC activated its emergency operations center to provide ongoing support to confront coronavirus

    JAN 27: A tale of 2 press conferences Vice President Pence outlined the administration's efforts to work with China to counter coronavirus. President Trump convenes a Coronavirus Task Force that began meeting daily.

    JAN 31: President Trump initiated travel restrictions from China, which the experts have praised as a critical decision to slow the spread of coronavirus-and Democrats claimed was racist and xenophobic.

    FEB 5: President Trump in SOTU address: "Protecting Americans’ health also means fighting infectious diseases. We are coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the Coronavirus outbreak in China. My Administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat"

    FEB 9: The Trump administration’s Coronavirus Task Force met with governors to coordinate response efforts.

    FEB 24: President Trump requested additional funding to fight the coronavirus.

    MAR 2: The Trump administration secured commitments from top pharmaceutical companies to develop a vaccine to fight coronavirus.

    2. His daily bullshit sessions are trying to rewrite history.
    The only people trying to rewrite history are the Democrats and their propaganda media.

    3. Navarro's warning came right after Warren submitted her Covid19 plan

    to address the health crisis and plan for its effect on the economy. Guys like Navarro may say publicly that they disagree with Warren, but, every damn one of them knows she is miles ahead of them.
    Warren's just another jack*ss who plagiarized a large portion of President Trump's plan and then added the Democrats socialist wish list.

    Warren put out her "plan" January 29, three weeks after President Trump began preparations.

    4. It was just a couple days ago Trump claimed he knew all about it

    before anyone did.
    He did. It's liberals that constantly twist his words to claim that he's lying or he's saying that he didn't "know" it was coming or to claim he did nothing for 70 days. LIES, all LIES.

    It shows Democrats and the Democrat Party is a very bad light. They have no credibility, just like most of the media has no credibility.

    5. My First Thought, Too

    So he "knew" before this memo was written.
    Oh what a tangled web...
    He KNEW, and HE WAS TAKING ACTIONS. Contrary to Obama who waited 6 months and over 1,000 deaths before calling for a National Emergency. Over 60 MILLION People were infected with H1N1 and over 12,000 people died. Afterwards he didn't bother to replace the supplies that were used from the national stockpile.

    6. Also, it's all Obama's fault, coz he didn't forsee this.
    The point is the Democrats ALWAYS have double standards. Their corrupt criminals can never do no wrong and the LIE about Republicans and claim they do what the DEMOCRAT JACK*SSES ACTUALLY HAVE DONE.

    7. They were told but Chump chose to do nothing.

    That's a lot different from not being told.

    Lying bunch of assholes.
    They only lying assh*les are the Democrats who WILLFULLY deny what President Trump, his Administration and the professionals have done starting in January, long before any jack*ss even acknowledged it.

    Into March DEMOCRAT LEADERS were encouraging people to congregate at Chinese New Year Festivals, other festivals, and to hug Chinese strangers claiming that the coronavirus wasn't a problem.

    When a Prog skews source quotes partial sentences, cutting out context, it's no accident. But let the Trump Administration's actions demonstrate whether or not he took this coronavirus seriously:

    China informed WHO of the outbreak in Wuhan of unknown cause: December 31, 2019, https://www.who.int/csr/don/05-janua...ause-china/en/

    CDC issued a Level 1 travel notice for Wuhan, China: January 6, 2020, https://afludiary.blogspot.com/2020/...el-notice.html

    CDC established a coronavirus incident management system: January 7, 2020, https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/videos/...19-webinar.pdf

    The US started screening arriving passengers from China: January 17, 2020, JFK, SFO, LAX https://www.businessinsider.com/new-...ing-cdc-2020-1 ; O'Hare and Hartsfield-Jackson January 22, 2020, https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...lanta-chicago/

    Dr. Fauci announces the National Institutes of Health working developing a vaccine for coronavirus: January 20, 2020, https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/20/healt...ent/index.html

    CDC activated its emergency operations center: January 20, 2020, https://emergency.cdc.gov/recentinci...d=EPR-homepage

    Pharmaceuticals company working with US government to develop vaccine: January 22, 2020, Moderna, https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/22/mode...ronavirus.html

    CDC sought “special emergency authorization” from FDA to allow states to use its coronavirus test: January 23, 2020, https://www.reuters.com/article/us-c...-idUSKBN1ZM2XS

    Those actions were all before Peter Navarro's January 29th memo. What did the Trump Administration do on January 29th that either preceded or may have been in response to Navarro's memo:

    White House announced the formation of the Coronavirus Task Force: January 29, 2020, https://thehill.com/policy/healthcar...or-coronavirus

    US personnel evacuated from Wuhan: January 29, 2020 https://abcnews.go.com/US/us-charter...ry?id=68571310

    And what did the Trump Administration do immediately after Navarro's memo:

    State Department raised the travel advisory for China to Level 4, do not travel: January 31, 2020, https://www.usatoday.com/story/trave...se/4620989002/

    People entering the US from China forbidden: Announced January 31, 2020, effective February 2, 2020, https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/02/us/co...ons/index.html This effectively ended flights from and to China, for obvious reasons.

    I'd love to ask the gullible LiberalArkie when China and WHO told the world that human-human transmission of this coronavirus had happened. But that would get me banned, and I don't have a mole on DU . (S)He could find the answer in the China events link in my signature, with some help from Google Translate.

    Is the Navarro revelation finally the tipping point for trumpers?

    He can't sing his usual tunes. Fake news. Democratic hoax. Trust Putin instead of our own intelligence agencies. This is one of his prime stooge loyalists who was trying to warn him and he wouldn't listen.


    Might the Trump Davidians FINALLY start getting it now?

    No, because we know the TRUTH, while Democrats are touting LIES. Jack*sses think that if they refuse to admit what he did and is doing that it magically means he didn't and isn't doing it.

    Democrats live in the fantasy world their mind and hate creates rather than reality and facts.

    I got a postcard in the mail.
    “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.” Isaiah 54:17
    Matthew 10:29-31
    "Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. "So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.

    Like I said above - pointing out the blatantly obvious, no brilliance on my part - when a Prog skews source quotes phrases out of context, it's because the context contradicts their narrative. In this case:

    In a Jan. 29 memo about the coronavirus addressed to the National Security Council, Peter Navarro, President Trump’s trade adviser, warned that the “risk of a worst-case pandemic scenario should not be overlooked,” the Times reported. The disease could kill up to half a million Americans, Navarro warned in the document, and cost the U.S. trillions of dollars if no action was taken to contain the virus.
    The omitted context is that Navarro recommended .......... that Trump shut down travel to/from China. Which Trump did, announcing it 2 days later. IOW, Trump did not ignore Navarro's advice.

    SV Pete has the most comprehensive timelines I have seen. Too bad the DUmmies won't take the time to read them nor have the brain power to understand them.
