Trump says coronavirus crisis will ‘get worse before it gets better,’ pleads with Americans to wear masks

In his first official press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic since April, President Trump on Tuesday admitted that the public health crisis is likely to worsen as cases surge across the country and asked all Americans to wear masks in public.
While Trump hailed his administration’s response to the pandemic and the work toward developing a vaccine, he bluntly disclosed what many Americans already know: that the crisis is likely to spread more before it can be contained.
“It will get worse before it gets better,” Trump said of the pandemic that has infected close to 4 million Americans. “That’s something I don’t like saying but it is.”
Trump’s comments come after weeks where he either downplayed the virus’ continued spread or focused on other issues – from unrest over racial injustice in American cities to the removal of Confederate statues – despite cases of COVID-19 surging, particularly, in parts of the south and southwest.
Noting the concerns among many of his supporters that facial coverings impinge on their personal freedoms, Trump pleaded with Americans to wear masks out in public to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
“We’re asking everybody when you’re not able to socially distance to wear a mask,” Trump said.
To: VictoryGalByte me–this means wearing masks until the f***ing New Year at a minimum.I want my life back.

I think he’s been duped too. All of a sudden, it’s MASKS everywhere – Melania has one, Trump LIKES them, every protester in the news has one on, every journalist at the WH. It’s like Trump is Gullivered by a thousand tiny ropes and can’t get free. I don’t like it.
To: CheshireTheCat; Abbeville Conservative; AllReverse psychology?He’s hoping the Left starts to be against masks if he is for them?
Gee, I hope that is right, 4D chess again.
I love it when they come right out and say it.
To: Veggie ToddAnd yet they wore masks like this after WWI to stop the Spanish Flu – and wow – they survived – and kept their rights.
Guess they were tougher than most Freepers.
I’m stunned. Is this really true that Trump is saying that??? Or is this more b.s. from the lying media?
Trump can’t be taking in all this bull sh#t. The political pressure of this upcoming election must be getting to him.
Pry(sic) for Trump.
Trump has waffled on masks! He’s also provided cover to these rogue Dem Govs who want to keep their states locked down indefinitely when he said: “[COVID-19] is going to get worse before it gets better.”
These new covid pressers are going to be a disaster! Can’t wait to see what else Trump flip flops on.
Trump is still scared sh*tless of covid.
To: Louis Foxwell
“OK I will wear the dam mask.”
Also, never to the vaccine!
They finally got to Trump.
Each person for themselves.
To: tatownMy gut says that if he felt 100% confident he was “winning” he wouldn’t have even brought it up.
Bingo. He sees the bad polls and believes them, unlike people here. He does not want to be swept away in a blue wave, and this is a desperate attempt to reverse the slide.
To: a fool in paradise
To: bboopI dont trust Trump now..He could be heavily invested in this Biotech scam…..and he IS a city boy, hed probably survive 2 days in the wilderness.
I WOULDN’T MAKE MY DAMN DOG WEAR A MUZZLE…. BUT YOU WANT US TO WEAR A USELESS DAMN MASK !!!
screw you Trump, you’re the best we got but Im not all in
It will be a cold day in Hell before I am vaccinated for this virus. I’m really not comfortable with my DNA being changed.
Anyway, I don’t need the dangerous vaccine. This virus isn’t a threat to me.
A) It isn’t changing your DNA. It isn’t going to turn you into a wombat or a unicorn or one of the lizard people. The leading vaccine from Oxford is a traditional gen1/gen2 vaccine. It presents a non-infectious virus with the SARS-CoV-2 antigens to the body so it can be destroyed and the immune system trained for future encounters.
The one from Moderna doesn’t alter anything either; it merely presents the instructions for building antigens to your body. Your body produces the antigens, your immune system recognizes them as foreign and destroys them. You build immunity as part of that process just as you would naturally. It’s like being exposed to the virus without the infectious parts of the virus.
But none of the vaccine candidates change your DNA. That isn’t what they do. That isn’t what any vaccine does. There would be no point in doing so. It would accomplish nothing. This isn’t a genetic abnormality that could possibly be corrected with such a thing. It’s a virus that your immune system needs to build immunity to.
B) There is no vaccine yet. There are over 140 vaccine candidates. There are 5 leading candidates including the Moderna vaccine candidate and the Oxford vaccine candidate. You’re claiming something is dangerous that doesn’t even yet exist.
C) The vaccine candidates are undergoing the exact same trials as any other vaccine does. President Trump has merely removed the bureaucratic red tape that normally holds up the process. Phase 1, phase 2, and phase 3 human trials are all ongoing. Phase 3 trials involve over 100,000 volunteers. The vaccine candidates are checked for both safety and efficacy, just as they always are.
