President Donald Trump has repeatedly downplayed the threat of the virus despite the mounting death toll. He’s taken an anti-scientific approach, repeatedly contradicting the nation’s top public-health experts. The president at one point even dangerously suggested that researchers should look into injecting disinfectant as a cure, prompting companies that produce such products to forcefully warn consumers against doing so.
More recently, when confronted with the staggering six-figure death toll from coronavirus in the US, Trump said: “They are dying. That’s true. And you — it is what it is.”
