I guess Trump heard about this from some of his "good friends" :)

Dr. Shaikh Mohamed, who leads the National Taskforce for Combating COVID-19, was also quoted by the news agency as saying hydroxychloroquine was administered according to the same regimens as those used in China and South Korea.

Somebody please explain this to me.

How could anyone with half a brain support Donald Trump??? Let alone have the vigor to defend him. Sorry but you have to be completely blind and stupid at this point not to see that Trump only cares about Trump. He is a narcissistic liar, cannot trust what he says.

sad, sad indeed.
Well, if you were actually reading the comments, people were complaining about the blatant and proven media lies. But, I guess if those lies are about Trump then some people just can't handle it or don't want to hear it.

As I said before...some of you need to get a life. When you choose to defend media lies because you're so full of hatred, then maybe you need to seek some professional help.

Well, it's not really Trumps fault that the person die. It's a catch 22, the average person isn't that smart. It's been proven time and time again, it explains how Trump was elected. That being said, Trump should be proud he is starting to win against China. Checking the world metrics, the USA has more cases than China. Plus they will start opening to their boarders to 'low risk' countries. He should be proud.

Those who think that official numbers out of China are accurate probably shouldn't question the intelligence of others.

^ If you think the numbers from China are not accurate, you have to address a couple of points:

-If cases were still rising rapidly, corpses would be piling up and even a totalitarian dictatorship can't hide that very effectively
-If cases in China continued rising rapidly, most of the country would have been infected by now.

So, you have to be clearer about what you mean by disbelieving the official numbers from China. You mean more are dead? More were infected? Infection is still spreading? I'm open to the idea, but you would see evidence of wide-spread spread of the virus, namely full hospitals and piles of bodies. Even China couldn't hide it.

As for how Trump got elected, you would think the voters had a choice between Trump and Mother Teresa, Einstein and Superman all rolled into one. They didn't. They had a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Trump's critics are going to ***** if he does something and ***** if he doesn't. No matter what he does they will find a way to ***** about it. He does right by ignoring them and dismissing the media as a bunch of lying whores.

Even if original infected and dead numbers from China are suspect, the current trend is at least in right direction. That gives hope that in worst case this will be overcome. We just have to get past the stupid leaders who were asking to go and enjoy parade and hug an asian American in NY as recently as 3 weeks ago. They are paying the price. And we in Canada are paying the price for not stopping travel early enough.

And 2 surgical masks per shift in Ottawa hospital as per CTV news story. Covid-19 is exposing the might of our health care. I did not expect that in yr 2020 a doctor in Canada is asked to see a potentially infectious patient without a N95 mask. And we pat ourselves on the back for sending 16 ton PPE to China mid Feb.

That's the problem.
The Democrats still aren't pushing a credible candidate. Biden?
His hair sniffing montages alone freak me out.
At least when Trump was messing around with pornstars, he did it in private and he paid them.

Trump didn't win the election, Clinton lost it.

To be fair, Trump is in a tough position, he's got an impossible problem, and the people want his simple straightforward style. So things like the N95 mask seizures are "obvious".
Sure these actions will seriously damage US credibility and economy long term, but right now everyone is looking at the short term.

Doug Ford is right. We should be making our own PPE right here in Ontario. As Ford said.........never again.

Trudeau and Ford won't take Trump's edict lying down. There will be repercussions and consequences..........to be named later.

I'm now waiting to see how Trump's defenders on this forum explain his decision to order 3M not to provide masks to Canada. That order also applies to other countries as well by the way.

^ And the SIL's expertise on MAGA with this:

Wait, Jared Kushner is the coronavirus guru now?

...

Let's go through what Kushner said:
1) Asked about states' complaints that they weren't getting the medical supplies they needed from the federal government, Kushner said this: "The notion of the federal stockpile is that it's supposed to be our stockpile. It's not supposed to be states' stockpiles that they then use." ...
which was conveniently changed to this ????:

..That runs directly counter to how the Strategic National Stockpile is described on its own website (bolding is mine):
"Strategic National Stockpile is the nation's largest supply of life-saving pharmaceuticals and medical supplies for use in a public health emergency severe enough to cause local supplies to run out. When state, local, tribal, and territorial responders request federal assistance to support their response efforts, the stockpile ensures that the right medicines and supplies get to those who need them most during an emergency."
... OMG.

He's taking care of his citizens first.

Trudeau sent thousands of our much needed masks to his friend in China, and lets unvetted illegals cross daily at Roxham and lets planes land from China with no medical procedures in place. I'd love to hear you defend those decisions.

The US stockpile is so the feds can disperse it to help all of the states that need help when neccesary. I'm not sure why that bothers you? It's not like they're holding it back and refusing to help those that need help.

You remind me of the old proverb Prairie Guy.

I'll leave it to others to decide which category you remind me of.

Not that I'm a Trump defender, but he needs masks, so he's going to get masks using every legal tool available.
Now the explanation why?
There is a disease ravaging the planet, having masks will help reduce the spread. Having masks will save lives. As the leader of the executive branch of the US government, it is his job to get the supplies they need to save lives.

He's literally doing his job. That's the explanation.

Now, the cost of these actions, if they're appropriate, if they'll make things better or worse for the US are all points to discussion, but they are all secondary to the simple basic explanation of why he felt he had to do this.

The media failed to trap Trump with a "gotcha" question, but they sure did suck you in. I explained my answer, unlike you. Perhaps you don't know as much as you think you do.
