CORONAVIRUS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Even as President Donald Trump privately admitted to journalist Bob Woodward earlier this year that the coronavirus was highly contagious and dangerous, Trump claimed he wasn’t worried about contracting the virus himself.
CNN on Friday obtained a new audio recording from Woodward’s April 13 interview with Trump that sheds new light on the President’s mindset…
‘You’re risking getting it, of course,’ said Woodward. ‘The way you move around and have those briefings and deal with people. Are you worried about that?’
‘No, I’m not. I don’t know why I’m not. I’m not,’ the President responded.
‘Why?’ Woodward asked.
‘I don’t know,’ Trump said. ‘I’m just not.'”
