President Donald Trump proclaimed this week that he wants to have everything reopened by Easter Sunday, which is April 12. It’s mere weeks away as many states are still on the upswing of coronavirus cases.

But MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell thinks that Trump will pretend he never said it when it becomes clear that the date is impossible.

“The United States has 65,063 cases of coronavirus and 906 reported deaths of coronavirus,” O’Donnell said Wednesday evening. “By the time we get to easter 18 days from now, Donald Trump will deny saying what he said yesterday about Easter. Here is what Donald Trump said yesterday, that he already wants you to forget.”

“So I think Easter Sunday, you’ll have packed churches all over our country,” Trump proclaimed during his press briefing.

Already Trump’s campaign is freaking out about an ad that plays all of Trump’s claims about the virus. In the early days of the virus, Trump said he solved the problem by shutting down flights from China. He then claimed that it was nothing more than just the flu. Then he decided that there were just 15 cases and it would be down to zero in no time. There were a slew of other comments before he finally started taking it seriously. His campaign sent a cease and desist letter about the ad.

2020 Election

Trump tells supporters he won’t be ‘stupid’ enough for peaceful transition of power if he loses

Published

President Donald Trump continued to spread debunked conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election during a Friday night campaign rally in Virginia.

Trump argued that it was impossible for him to lose the election, thus concluding he would be "stupid" to hand over power peacefully should he lose.

"We not gonna lose this, except if they cheat," Trump falsely claimed about the 2020 campaign, where he trails Joe Biden in national and battleground polling.

"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."
