President Trump has complained to advisers about the way coronavirus deaths are being calculated, suggesting the real numbers are actually lower -- and a number of his senior aides share this view, according to sources with direct knowledge. ... There is no evidence the death rate has been exaggerated, and experts believe coronavirus deaths in the U.S. are being undercounted " not overcounted.

Predicted, long predicted, and typically disgusting Trump behavior.

Ship the corpses to the white house for counting. Maybe that is something Jared is capable of.

100,000 corpses on the white house lawn will smell as bad the white house bathroom after chili night.

This is the 2016 popular vote total all over again, saying the numbers are fake. Next thing you know, Trump will be launching a investigation headed-up by someone like Devin Nunes to 'determine' what the real numbers are.

The next thing you know, and we aren't that far from it, COVID-19 is a Deep State thing, and something Democrats did.

Is there any doubt that he depends on the stupidity of his followers? He knows, or at least some of his advisors know that you can't create a vaccine for a virus that doesn't yet exist, but his base is really, honestly just too dumb to know that and the rest don't care, they just want more tax cuts.

Anyone who isn't questioning the death toll after so much evidence has been released that proves the numbers are skewed are the people who are the real danger in this situation.

"He's already said that all Obama left him was a bunch of broken tests,,,,, for a virus,,,,, that didn't exist yet...."

And Obama has already said that he should be given all credit for Trump's economy, but I don't see Dems blowing his name up about how bad things are getting now. Hypocrisy is the Left's platform this term, just wish they would own it.

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door, I must have it painted black

Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up, when your whole world is black

I follow this issue everyday.

Show me. Oh, and tell me how Republican governors such as DeSantis keeping their COVID dead secret affects it.

Then there's the related question, the one really of concern to you:

NO, it doesn't excuse Donald Trump if the number of dead currently are 60,000 versus 70,000; nor will it excuse him if the eventual death toll is 150,000 versus 200,000.

I'd LOVE to see Obama back right now. EVERYONE would. Except your peculiar sub-culture.

Idiot.

The death toll is likely HIGHER than reported. Every medical professional is saying that.

Obama NEVER said he should be given all the credit for Trump's economy. Trump managed to ---- up a good economy with a trade war. That's on him.

This is false and you keep posting it. There is no conspiracy inflating coronavirus numbers. The confirmed death count of 74,000 is far more likely to be lower than the real number than higher, because some states are doing a lousy job of confirming all cases.

Don't use this site to post false information about the pandemic. It's dangerous because it encourages people to engage in activities that could get them killed.

Current death count: 74,665+

Trumpublicans couldn't care less.

Trump couldn't care less.

All they care about is protecting the cult.

Trumps so bad at his job I actually miss G.W.Bush.. I used to think he was the dumbest man who could ever get elected, now Bush looks almost presidential compared to the current clown show.

RCADE,

You can't convince Humtake. He has Facebook and he "knows" the truth.

He doesn't need your experts and facts when he has memes from 4Chan and his QANON follower buddy Earl.

Facts and Experts can't compete with idiots thinking they have a good understanding of the situation and they weren't wrong.

We should take the Liar in Chief's word that the numbers are being artifically inflated because he hasn't been caught in, literally, thousands of lies since he became President. Oh wait, he has been caught in thousands of lies.
