(NewsReady.com) – Details from Bob Woodward’s new book “Rage” started trickling out this week and it was full of attacks on President Donald Trump. The novel, set for release on September 15, claims the commander-in-chief said COVID-19 was “deadly stuff,” but downplayed it when he spoke to the American people. Now, we know why Trump did that.
During an interview with Sean Hannity on September 9, Trump explained he is the “leader of the country” and that means he “can’t be jumping up and down and scaring people.” The president told the Fox News host he didn’t want people to start panicking.
As the president of the United States, Trump has an obligation to reassure the public and keep people calm. He took the virus seriously from the beginning when he implemented the ban on Chinese travel all the way back in January, but he couldn’t scream, “You’re all going to die!!!” on TV during a press conference. That would have been irresponsible and led to panic. It seems as though Trump did exactly what he was supposed to do: remained calm and implemented policies to slow the spread.
