    In my opinion President Trump and those he has surrounded himself with are doing the very best that they can. Unfortunately facts and data intervened to prevent our asperational goal of having some parts of our country ready to resume some activities including work and church by Easter. Trump handled himself well in his daily press briefing today.

    The President brought us some sobering news today. It will take longer to beat the virus and the cost in lives and economics will be greater than we’d hoped we could limit them to be.

    Trump added: "We can expect that by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery" and that "a lot of great things will be happening."

    Trump will just keep on guessing, he has no idea either.....

    "We can expect" is not the way I would have said it, but it's not "Don't worry, I guarantee that by June 1 ...."

    There comes a point where the citizenry has to decide to do its part, or not. There are reports today of churches in Louisiana being filled with parishioners. That's not helpful, and it isn't Trump's fault.

    He extended things due to facts and data. Being that we are naturally optimistic Americans he sets aspirational goals and tries to keep things as positive as possible under the circumstances despite the protests to the contrary by the hope America is always miserable as long as Trump is President political left

    There’s a difference between being optimistic and being unrealistic.

    He is a coward who never commits to anything, so when he is wrong about the peak of deaths in two weeks, removing social restrictions on April 30 and the economy doing great things by June 1, you will say he was just being hopeful. Most of us see that he is lying and blowing sunshine up your ass, and you seem to love it.

    He ran for President. Pretty ballsy. Did you laugh when Ann Coulter predicted he'd win?

    We are going to support our country by supporting our President as he and the experts he surrounded himself work on ways to get us through it. We are going to do it without regard for or caring a bit what the anti America Trump haters say, do, or think.

    A lot of haters laughed at people who said that all the way until they were crying on election night. They have been seeking revenge upon us and him ever since

    I get it. You’re going to support him no matter how much he lies, no matter how wrong he is.

    Patriots, on the other hand, prefer to put the interests of the country ahead of worship for the PINO Dirty Donny.

    Pretty sure that Trump supporters disagree with your definition of "lie." It means to knowingly state an untruth ... not "make a mistake", exaggerate, or delude oneself.

    So you guys think it’s ok if he continually says things that are demonstrably false, as long as he doesn’t know they’re false?

    If he isn’t lying, then he doesn’t care enough about facts to get them right. He just says whatever he thinks will make him look good at that moment.

    I honestly don’t know which is worse. Intentionally lying or just making **** up without caring whether it’s true. Doesn’t really matter to you guys. You love all the BS that speed from Dirty Donny, the PINO.

    Some people who oppose Trump generally on his handling of the corona virus matter are often openly siding with with their Chinese propaganda ministry handlers.

    Some people who support Trump generally are anti-American, although they may not realise it themselves.

    You guys? I didn't vote for Trump in 2016 and probably will not in 2020. But no, it's not "ok," but all voters are faced with a choice between a progressive and a conservative. It's not exactly like Biden has no flaws or shortcomings, but even if he did not, the question is still, in what direction do you want the country to go?

    Completely unresponsive to what I said.
    Trump says things that are demonstrably false, several times per day. He either knows they are false or doesn't care whether they are true or false.

    And his supporters give him a pass for his falsehoods or just don't care. Sad.

    There used to be a time when the electorate actually cared about facts. About the truth. His supporters quite obviously don't.

    I just can't trust Trump at all. At the beginning he called Covid a hoax, and said they would get the 15 cases to 0 very soon. Then he said we would be open by easter. Its obvious he is saying whatever he can to give the markets hope, but its not working.

    You're ascribing motives. Those are never knowable absent a confession or a secretly taped conversation.

    You said that Trump supporters think it's okay that he says things that are false. I denied that I or anyone else ever thinks its okay to do that. I can't get any more responsive than that.

    At least twice, he attacked reporters for asking about his own previous statements.

    Not this again! https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-coronavirus-rally-remark/

    The hoax was the Democrats' agenda to lay it all on him.

    Not exactly; the attacks were for their purported (in his view) mischaracterizations of his previous statements, and for "gotcha" journalism. I really don't know why he bothers taking questions from the media. They are obviously nearly unanimous in their desire to portray him in as negative a light as possible.

    Some posters here do that as well.
