CORONAVIRUS: Trump Appoints Mike Pence Overseer

Have no fear, Donald Trump announced on Wednesday, the U.S. is on top of the coronavirus outbreak. At a press conference, Trump announced that he has appointed Vice President Mike Pence to oversee the government’s response to the health scare and he said he’s confident that the U.S. can stop a widespread outbreak here.

So far, the coronavirus – which started in China — has infected more than 81,000 people around the world and has killed nearly 3,000.

Trump said, “We’re very, very ready for this.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Trump slammed the media for making the situation “look as bad as possible,” even though U.S. health experts said that the threat here is just beginning.

“You want to wash your hands a lot. You want to stay…if you’re not feeling well, if you feel you have a flu, stay inside. Sort of quarantine yourself. Don’t go outside.”

Hot Takes:

  • Pence seems like a great guy and all, but wouldn’t it be better to have a doctor in charge?
  • It’s a president’s job to reassure a troubled nation, but Trump says so much outrageous stuff all the time, I’m not sure I believe him.
  • America is so great with Trump in charge, there’s no way the coronavirus will hurt us like those other countries.
