President Trump claimed at a press briefing Monday that he would not have called for President Obama to resign if 160,000 Americans had died on his watch, despite tweeting in 2014 that Obama should resign for allowing a doctor who tested positive for Ebola to enter the U.S.

REPORTER: "If 160,000 people had died on President Obama's watch, do you think you would have called for his resignation?

TRUMP: "No, I wouldn't have done that. I think it's been amazing what we've been able to do. If we didn't close up our country, we would have had 1.5 or 2 million people already dead. We've called it right, now we don't have to close it. We understand the disease. Nobody understood it because nobody's ever seen anything like this. The closest thing is in 1917, they say, right? The great pandemic. Certainly was a terrible thing where they lost anywhere from 50 to 100 million people. Probably ended the Second World War, all the soldiers were sick."


Not only does Trump lie to the reporter about how he would have responded to Obama allowing over 160,000+ Americans to die.

He also believes the Second World War ended in 1917 because everyone got sick.

"Trump, who told Obama to resign after one Ebola death, calls 160,000 COVID-19 deaths "fantastic job"

"President Donald Trump on Monday claimed that he would not have called on former President Barack Obama to resign over the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 160,000 people in the U.S. so far. But Trump previously demanded his predecessor's resignation for far less.

Trump insisted that he would not have called on Obama to step down when a reporter questioned what his response would have been if "160,000 people had died on President Obama's watch."

Given that Trump repeatedly harangued Obama over his Ebola response, the remark drew skepticism. Trump demanded that Obama "apologize to the American people & resign" in the fall of 2014 for allowing an individual who tested positive for Ebola to enter the country."

Donald Trump should resign immediately and take Mike Pence with him.

It's like the Stupid Olympics at this point, figuring out who will be the final person who believes anything Trumpty-Dumpty says.

If this doctor, who so recklessly flew into New York from West
Africa, has Ebola, then Obama should apologize to the American
people & resign!

In a parallel universe, President Hillary Clinton is under multiple Senate investigations on why she allowed two dozen Americans to die of COVID.

In an America that hadn't completely lost it's s##t, this quote alone about the flu pandemic of 1918 'ending the Second World War in 1917 because all the soldiers were sick' would generate a lot of discussion about whether this ignoramus should be in such a position of power.

Nope.

Perfect Trump logic. Only two dead Americans is horrible. Tens of thousands of dead Americans is "amazing".

Trump supporters think so too. Bring it on! More dead!! MORE!!!

"It's one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It's going to be just fine," Trump told CNBC's Joe Kernen from the World Economic Forum in Davos.
