Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that the situation with the coronavirus in the US is likely to get worse: “it will get worse first before it gets better.” Trump also called on all residents of the country to wear masks when it is impossible to maintain a social distance.
“I think the President’s comments today show that he recognized the mistakes he made… Admitted that this is not a hoax, this is a pandemic that has already gotten worse before it gets better because of his inaction. And this is the Trump virus. If he had said a few months ago: let’s wear masks, let’s keep a social distance…more people would have followed his example. Instead of setting a bad example,” Pelosi said in an interview with the TV channel.
Previously, Trump suggested calling COVID-19 “Kung-flu” or “Chinese flu”.
