Trump Participates in Virtual Fox News Town Hall Meeting

-Editorial

There are many questions that Americans have about how can get back on their feet after being affected by COVID-19.

Fox News hosted a town hall meeting between the President and citizens asking them a variety of questions.

President Donald Trump warned that the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus outbreak could reach 100,000 — revising upward his estimate of the number of people the outbreak could kill by tens of thousands.

“Look, we’re going to lose anywhere from 75, 80 to 100,000 people. That’s a horrible thing. We shouldn’t lose one person out of this,” Trump said.

When asked about people being divided over reopening the government and being concerned about it, Trump said:

“Well, I think you can satisfy both.  If you’re scared, you’re going to stay back a little bit and you’re going to watch it.  And I think anyone over 60 — because we have pretty good — we have a pretty good roadmap right now.  Anybody over 60 — you could say 65, but let’s make it 60 — we have to protect those people and we have to watch it, and maybe they stay back longer.”

Trump also criticized the World Health Organization for its reaction to COVID-19.

“And, by the way, you have World Trade and you have World Health.  The World Health Organization has been a disaster.  Everything they said was wrong, and they’re China-centric.  All they do is they agree with China, whatever China wants to do,” Trump said, “So our country — perhaps foolishly, in retrospect — has been paying $450 million a year to the World Health Organization.  And China has been paying $38 million a year, but they were more political than all of our leaders previous.  So we’ll see what I do with that.  I’m going to have to make a decision on that.”
