Jake Tapper Rages at Trump for Claiming ‘Don’t Be Afraid of Covid’: ‘There Are Children Who Don’t Have Parents Now!’
TAPPER: “I just want to take a second here. President Trump wrote on Twitter: 'Don't be afraid of COVID. Don't let it dominate your life.' Almost 210,000 Americans are dead from this disease, meaning hundreds of thousands of people in this country are mourning. Oh, we just reached — we — look at that. We just reached 210,000 since I have been on air, 210,000 Americans dead, hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Americans mourning them; 7.4 million Americans have contracted the disease. Many of them are going to have health problems for the rest of their life. For President Trump, who gets the best medical care of anybody in the world, to say, 'don't be afraid of COVID, don't let it dominate your life,' there are children who don't have parents now because of this virus. Don't let it dominate your life?!"
