Trump says there's 'not much' he would do differently on coronavirus


‘Not much’: Trump’s response when asked what he would do differently if he got a ‘do-over’ of his COVID response – as America’s death toll reaches 221,000

  • Trump was asked at a Sinclair Broadcasting town hall at the White House if there is ‘anything’ he could have done differently
  • Trump responded ‘not much’
  • The U.S. continues to lead the world in coronavirus infections 
  • Attacked China and said the nation ‘should have stopped it’
  • Trump recently recovered from the coronavirus
  • First Lady Melania Trump cancelled a planned rally appearance Tuesday due to a cough after herself getting it 

President Donald Trump said at a town hall meeting there is ‘not much’ he would do differently on combating the coronavirus if he had the opportunity.

Trump made the statement to Sinclair Broadcasting, which interviewed him for a town hall meeting at the White House – one of multiple events Trump has held there amid challenges traveling around the country amid the pandemic.

‘With COVID, is there anything that you think you could have done differently, if you had a mulligan or a do-over on one aspect of the way you handled it, what would it be?,’ moderator Eric Bolling asked the president, on a stage set up in the White House Rose Garden.

‘Not much,’ Trump responded.

‘Look, it’s all over the world. You have a lot of great leaders, a lot of smart people. It’s all over the world. It came out of China. China should have stopped it,’ he said

Trump’s immediate response did not account for the rising coronavirus infections across the country, including in the Midwest and other reasons, or the nation continuing to lead in the death toll. 

Public health officials have pointed to a lack of social distancing, continued gatherings, reopenings despite high positivity test rates, and people’s refusal to embrace mask wearing and other steps.

With more than 8 million cases, the U.S. continues to lead the world, and is far ahead of other wealthy countries with advanced health systems. India, population 1.3 billion, is in second place and on an upward tragectory.

Trump regularly touts a travel ban he instituted on flights from China, but the administration faced criticism in the spring for severe shortages of protective equipment.

Rival Joe Biden and longtime ally has blasted Trump for not sending a strong message for people to wear masks. Trump ally former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recently echoed his belief in this message after being hospitalized for COVID-19, presumably catching it at a White House superspreader event he attended.

Trump himself was hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19. First Lady Melania Trump had a scratch a planned appearance at a Trump rally Tuesday, reporting suffering from a cough after her own COVID-19 infection.
