During a press conference Wednesday, President Donald Trump was asked why he thinks that the coronavirus will disappear without a vaccine. His answer left many confused.

“It’ll be eradicated,” he said, refusing to answer how that would happen.

Trump, who doesn’t generally believe in science, has largely deferred to the doctors on the coronavirus task force, but in some cases, he’s invented his own conclusions.

Conservative rips GOP ‘turkeys’ for turning Thanksgiving COVID safety measures into a culture-war fight

Published

Writing in The Bulwark this Thursday, Tim Miller says that America should be experiencing a time of national solidarity in the midst of a global pandemic. Instead, "we have a president whose focus is entirely on his effort to perpetrate a fraud on the American public."
