Donald Trump blames New York for a ‘LATE START’ in the fight against the corona virus

Donald Trump blamed New York for a “late start” in the fight against the corona virus, saying that Governor Andrew Cuomo hit “paydirt” with “hospitals and ships.”

The president criticized New York and New Jersey for their early efforts to address the pandemic, targeting Cuomo during the White House briefing Tuesday, in the final war of words between the two.

“For whatever reason, New York got going late and you see what happens when you start late,” Trump said, adding that New Jersey was just as slow.

“New Jersey has left – and I think both governors are doing an excellent job … but they started very late.”

He praised the states in Washington and California for their response to the pandemic.

“If you look at Washington State, if you remember it all started in a very limited nursing home,” Trump said.

“And you had 20 strange people who died in that one house, but that didn’t mean it escaped from that house, which means they have very different statistics from other states.”

Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, reinforced the president’s view, saying she recommends other affected cities and states look to California and Washington for inspiration on how to respond to the pandemic and not New York.

The states of California and Washington responded to all of this very early on. Washington State had some of the earliest infections. They’ve kept it low and stable, ”said Birx.

Other areas should be “more like California than the New York City metro area,” she added.

Washington state, about two weeks before New York or New Jersey. California, a week before New York or New Jersey, really spoke to their communities and decided to soften before they started seeing this number, “Birx said.

Birx said it is up to communities “not to have the experience of New York and New Jersey.”

When asked about the supply of fans to New York, Trump, after Cuomo had repeatedly said the federal government should send more supplies to the epicenter of the crisis, had already been very generous.

“I don’t know what he said. I think he has been quite generous since he is a Democrat and I think he would like to become President so I think he has been quite generous under the circumstances, ” he said.

“I have ships for him, I have hospitals for him, I have many things for him that he never thought of – he paid well and I was very generous with fans.”

He also said that New York had not first used its own supply of fans.

“If you look, they had 2,000 and 4,000 in his warehouse, in their warehouse, waiting to be picked up. They never picked them up so I should hear from him personally. ‘

“For whatever reason, New York got going late and you see what happens when you start late,” Trump said

He said that FEMA had “sent additional fans to New York and New Jersey” and supplied “250 ambulances and 500 EMTs” to New York.

Trump also said the government is “holding” a stock of 10,000 fans because “the wave is coming.”

“We are also holding back quite a bit. We have almost 10,000 fans that we have ready. We have to stop them because the wave is coming and it is getting pretty strong and we want to be able to put it in place immediately without grabbing it so we are ready to go, ” he said.

He went on to say that if the state governors wanted more fans, they just had to ask.

The president turned to Cuomo and told him to stop complaining.

He “shouldn’t be complaining because we gave him a lot of fans,” he said.

“Whatever you give, it is never enough.”

Trumps’ comments came hours after Cuomo said the federal government created a fan “ bidding war ” similar to “ like being on eBay. ”

Cuomo was also furious with the “bidding war” issued by the federal government for fans. He said that he had bought 17,000 fans from China for $ 25,000 each, a total of $ 425 million, but that he had to fight against every other state for them and the government.

“Look at the bizarre situation we got into; each state makes its own purchases and tries to buy the same goods.

“The same exact item. So you have 50 states competing to buy the same item, sacrifice each other, and compete against each other – it’s like being on eBay with 50 other states bidding on a fan, “he said.

In a Twitter post, Cuomo also said, “We are one nation. We need to buy and distribute supplies that work together as one nation. 50 states cannot compete for the same supplies. It does not make any sense.’

New York State now has 75,795 cases of coronavirus – an increase of 9,298 since Monday – and 1,550 have died.

The death toll in New York State rose by 332 overnight and shows no signs of slowing yet.

The mounting crisis came close to home for Governor Cuomo, who tearfully reported that his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, had tested positive for the virus.

No love has been lost between the President and the Governor of New York in recent weeks as the state has become the epicenter of the American crisis.

On Saturday, Trump said he was considering quarantining New York – along with Connecticut and New Jersey – before returning hours later.

Trump made the comments when the USNS Comfort ship was sent to New York to turn it into an improvised hospital.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo recalled the president’s plans in a news conference moments later.

“I don’t even know what that means. I don’t know how that can be legally enforceable, ”Cuomo said.

“And medically, I don’t know what you would achieve.

“But I can tell you, I don’t even like it.”

Cuomo said he had spoken to Trump earlier on Saturday and the two had not discussed a possible quarantine.

Cuomo went even further in an interview with CNN on Saturday night saying it was “anti-American,” “anti-social,” and would amount to a “federal declaration of war.”

“If you walled areas across the country, it would just be totally bizarre, counterproductive, anti-American, anti-social,” he said.

“This is sort of a discussion about a civil war,” Cuomo said of the proposal. “I don’t think a government could take the physical shutdown of states seriously.”

Cuomo said it would probably be illegal to quarantine New York and that it would also be totally ineffective, given the emergence of other virus hotspots in the country, such as New Orleans.

“It makes absolutely no sense and I don’t think a serious government person or professional would support it,” Cuomo said.

Trump withdrew from the move hours later, but he focused on Cuomo and other state governors that they should appreciate “ the appreciation of the government. ”

“Everything I want them to do, very simple, I want them to be appreciative. I don’t want them to say things that are not true. I want them to be grateful. We did a great job, ”he said Saturday.

At Trump’s press conference on Tuesday, he also extended his government’s recommendations to slow the spread of viruses from 15 days to the end of April.

The guidelines urged Americans to end social gatherings over ten, work from home, and pick up the order.

Trump’s announcement that those recommendations would be extended until April 30 was an abrupt reversal after saying most of last week that he would like to see restrictions lifted at Easter, which is April 12.

The U.S. coronavirus death toll climbed past 3,600 on Tuesday, overshadowing China’s official census when hard-hit New York rushed to bring in more medical professionals and ambulances and park chilled morgues on the street to pick up the dead.

At least 3,669 people in the US have died from the deadly virus, according to data from John Hopkins University.

The global benchmark reports that in China, where the global pandemic has arisen, 3,309 people have died from the virus.

Fears that the US is on its way to become the new Italy, whose healthcare has gotten under the weight of the pandemic, is quickly becoming a reality.

Italy has recorded more deaths, with 12,428 as of Tuesday afternoon. However, the US has far exceeded the number of confirmed cases, reaching 181,099 to 105,792 in Italy.

“Prepare for 100,000 deaths.” Tony Fauci warns of an amazing death toll and tells areas that aren’t closed to take action NOW

Dr. Tony Fauci painted a grim picture for Americans on Tuesday, warning that people should be prepared for 100,000 coronavirus deaths.

“The answer is yes – no matter how sobering a song is, we have to be prepared,” he said when asked at the White House daily press conference for the six-digit number. “Will it be that much? I hope not, and I think the more we push for mitigation, the less likely it will be, but since we are realistic we have to prepare, that’s a possibility we will see that. ‘

The White House predicted 100,000 to 240,000 deaths in the United States if current social distance guidelines are maintained.

Fauci used the numbers to urge people to adhere to the six-foot separation social distance guidelines.

“When you have an effect, it’s not time to take your foot off the accelerator and press the brake, but just press the accelerator,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said. said about mitigation efforts.

“The fifteen days we’ve had mitigation are clearly having an effect,” he noted.

He said that such efforts can also help damage every possible second wave of disease.

“We hope that doesn’t happen and that’s why we’re really pushing and why I was so emphatic about making sure we followed those mitigation strategies,” he said.

President Donald Trump said the prediction was “sobering,” calling attempts to spread the slowness of the coronavirus “a matter of life and death.”

“It is absolutely crucial that the American people follow the guidelines for the next 30 days, frankly it is a matter of life and death,” said the president.

“I want every American to be prepared for the difficult days ahead. We are going through a few difficult weeks. And, hopefully, as the experts predicted, many of us predict that we’ve studied it so hard that we’re going to see really light at the end of the tunnel and this will be a very painful, a very very painful two weeks, ‘ he noted.

It was a big change in tone for President Trump, who sounded hopeful last week that the crisis would be over in the coming weeks. Now his government is preparing Americans for tougher times.

But all the loud talk of the next few days brought some sparks of hope.

“If all other states and all other metropolitan areas can keep that case number down, it’s a very different picture,” said Dr. Deborah Birx, who coordinates the administration’s daily response to the disease. .

“We’re going to do everything we can to get it down significantly,” she said.

Fauci agreed: “We don’t accept that number, that’s what it’s going to be. We will do everything we can to get that number even lower. ‘

Trump defended his previous upbeat statements about the coronavirus after Fauci’s sobering figures, explaining that he is trying to be a cheerleader for the country.

He also acknowledged that he was “probably” distracted by the democratic impeachment, which culminated in his Senate trial in early February when the virus raged and governments may have missed a window to prepare hospitals and get needed equipment.

But the president said he wouldn’t have done better, even if he hadn’t been for a impeachment he called a “hoax.”

“I want to be positive. I don’t want to be negative. I am a positive person, “said the President during the briefing, where his team presented a harrowing model in a worst-case scenario and the President predicted that 100,000 people would die, even if Americans heed urges to stay home and avoid that they spread the disease.

“I’m a cheerleader for the country,” Trump said, why he wasn’t sharing bad news anymore.

Trump also acknowledged that impeachment diverted his attention during build-up, after DailyMail.com asked him about Senator Mitch McConnell’s comment that it diverted the government’s attention – and whether it diverted his own.

“I don’t think I did that. I like to think I handled it very well, but I think it probably worked out. I got dropped off, you know. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, right? But think about it. It was a hoax, a total hoax, “said the President.

“Looking at the reports, it’s a shame what happened. It is a total disgrace. They were caught red-handed, but you know what? We won’t talk about that now, ”Trump continued.

“Did it divert my attention? I think I get A pluses for the way I treated myself during the fake deposition, okay? It was a hoax, but I think I certainly thought of it, and I think I probably acted – I don’t think I would have done better if I hadn’t been ripped off. ‘

“Maybe it’s a tribute to me. I don’t think I would have acted faster. But the Democrats … all their lives, all of their lives, all of their beings have been trying to get me out of office in every way possible, “Trump said.

“I don’t think I would have acted any differently or any faster,” he said.

The number of coronavirus numbers in New York State is increasing by 9,298 to 75,795 and deaths are increasing by 332 to 1,550, as Governor Cuomo admits ‘no one knows’ when the crisis is over

New York State now has 75,795 cases of coronavirus – an increase of 9,298 since Monday – and 1,550 have died.

At night, 18,000 people were tested in New York State. 200,000 tests have been performed to date.

The death toll in New York State rose by 332 overnight and shows no signs of slowing yet.

At a news conference on Tuesday, Cuomo shared how he unified the state’s private and public health care systems to function as a system ahead of the pandemic “summit” in state hits.

He admitted that he doesn’t know when it will come and that data projections he’s looking at suggest it could happen between seven and 21 days from now.

Governor Cuomo told people to settle down for a longer period of crisis than they expected and said “we still have to descend to the other side of the mountain” even after the peak occurred.

Cuomo said the data is uneven and ‘bouncing’, so where death rates seem to be slowing down, they aren’t yet.

Governor Cuomo told people to settle in a longer period of crisis than they expected and said “we still have to get back to the other side of the mountain” even after the peak occurred

“It’s an imperfect reporting mechanism, but the baseline is still up. We’re still going up, “he said, adding that he spoke to every expert he could find to rely on their projections and not” think “about what might happen.

He said he was “tired” to be “behind” the virus, adding, “We were behind this virus from day one. The virus was in China. Unless we assume the immune system varies with Asian people, it came here. You don’t win by catching up. We have to be there. ‘

He also said it was stupid to “underestimate your opponent” and continued, “We underestimated this virus. It is more powerful and dangerous than we expected. ‘

Cuomo said the “next battle” will be the culmination of the fallen and the dead, but he does not know when it will strike.

“When’s the top? That’s the $ 65,000 question. We literally have 5 models we are looking at. It is true that almost no two are alike. The range on top is somewhere between seven and 21 days, ‘he said.

Cuomo’s strategy to tackle the virus includes:

  • Centralize the hospital system to compel public and private hospitals to share resources, including staff
  • First, personnel from non-severely affected hospitals are sent to New York State
  • Hospitals in New York City, both public and private, will redistribute patients to evenly distribute them across the city until each hospital reaches its capacity (they have all increased their capacity by at least 50 percent)
  • Patients are then distributed from New York City to quieter hospitals in the state or beyond in the state
  • Field hospitals will be used to relieve them
  • Out-of-state health workers will also be used to provide relief to ‘exhausted’ and ‘overwhelmed’ doctors and nurses
  • He has purchased 17,000 fans from China for $ 25,000 each, totaling $ 425 million

Central to Cuomo’s plan is centralizing the hospital systems in order to lift the notion of public and private health care and allow everyone to share everything.

He said that on Monday he had a tense meeting with the leaders of private hospitals who normally take advantage of a wave of patients and that he almost “couldn’t figure it out” because they were so angry with what he was instructing.

“I don’t care which link in the chain breaks – the chain is still broken. It does not matter which hospital, which link – every link breaks, the chain breaks.

“The care system is a chain. It breaks everywhere, it breaks everywhere. That must be our mindset, “he said.

Since a call to action for retired nurses and doctors to return to work, 78,000 people have volunteered.

“We have now, a few days ago we went out to ask retirees, we now have 78,000 people who said they would help; God bless the state of NY and god bless humanity, “he said.

He urges other states to help him now so that he can help them later.

“It is unity. Let’s help each other. New York now needs help. This is going to be a wave all over the country; New York, Detroit, New Orleans, California

“If we were smart as a nation – come and help us in New York, get the experience and training here, let’s all go and help the next place, then the next place and then the next place.

“That would be a smart national way to do this.”

Cuomo was also furious with the “bidding war” issued by the federal government for fans. He said that he had bought 17,000 fans from China for $ 25,000 each, a total of $ 425 million, but that he had to fight against every other state for them and the government.

“Look at the bizarre situation we got into; each state makes its own purchases and tries to buy the same goods.

“The same exact item. So you have 50 states competing to buy the same item, sacrifice each other, and compete against each other – it’s like being on eBay with 50 other states bidding on a fan, “he said.

Several states complain about a shortage of tests in which the Republican Maryland Governor criticizes Trump’s denial of the problem

The Maryland Governor has rejected President Donald Trump’s denial that there is a shortage of coronavirus test kits.

In a leaked taping of a conference call with several governors, Trump claimed he had no complaints about ‘weeks’ testing of deficits.

Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican who is president of the National Governors Association, responded to Trump’s comments in an interview with NPR on Tuesday, saying, “Yes, that’s just not true.”

“I know they have taken some steps to create new tests, but they are not actually produced and distributed to the United States. So it’s an ambitious thing, ”Hogan continued.

He added that the Trump administration has some new test measures in the works, but for the time being, no state has enough testing.

Hogan said he believes others in the administration are “talking about the facts.”

“We’re listening to the smart team,” Hogan said, naming Vice President Mike Pence and other members of the White House coronavirus task force, including doctors Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci.

Trump’s controversial comments came during an hour-long conference call where he was joined by Birx, Pence, Fauci, Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia, and FEMA administrator Pete Gaynor.

Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican who chairs the National Governors Association, responded to Trump’s comments on Tuesday, saying, “Yes, that’s just not true.”

In a leak, he pushed back when asked by national governors for help.

“I could give four or five examples in the past week where we have delivery orders, which were then canceled, and they were partially canceled because what our suppliers say is that federal funds demand and trump that,” Montana Governor Steve Bullock, a Democrat, said in the leaked call.

“So we’re trying to move stocks to really isolate that and do contact tracking, but we don’t even have enough stocks to test.”

Trump bragged about how the US conducted more tests than any other country. He then bragged about a new four-minute test that was released.

“I haven’t heard about testing in weeks,” Trump said. “We have now tested more than any other country in the world. We have these great tests and we will release one more tomorrow, you know, testing almost immediately. But I haven’t heard about testing as a problem. ‘

Admiral Brett Giroir, head of the Public Health Service, spoke about the new kits and agreed that each state would get at least 15 soon.

“We’ll take that to your state lab as soon as possible,” Giroir added.

Michelle Lujan Grisham, the democratic governor of New Mexico, also revealed the need for more testing after “incredible spikes” in infection rates that she said could “eradicate tribal states.”

“The infection rate, at least on the New Mexico side – although we have several Arizona residents in our hospitals – we see a much higher hospitalization, a much younger hospitalization, a much faster transit-rate for this population,” Grisham to Trump. “And we see doubling in every day and a half.”

Trump simply replied, Wow, that’s something. ‘

Several governors complained that if their state were not promptly given the necessary test and personal protective equipment, their territories could be the next epicentres of the outbreak that has plagued the US.
