Trump Ignored More Than A Dozen Warnings As He Downplayed The Threat

Trump ignored repeated warnings about the severity of the threat and failed to prepare, making the coronavirus crisis worse than it needed to be.

Trump was warned about the coronavirus by U.S. intelligence agencies more than a dozen times throughout January and February.

Washington Post: “U.S. intelligence agencies issued warnings about the novel coronavirus in more than a dozen classified briefings prepared for President Trump in January and February, months during which he continued to play down the threat, according to current and former U.S. officials.”

Yet, Trump ignored warnings and instead spent those months downplaying the threat and failing to prepare for the coronavirus crisis.
