Trump: ‘We Are Learning to Live with COVID’ Just Like the Flu
President slams lockdowns in a new tweet
President Donald Trump said people in America are now “learning to live” with the coronavirus, just like the seasonal flu.
Trump wrote on Twitter:
“Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu."
“Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with COVID, in most populations far less lethal!!!”

Trump has urged people not to let COVID-19 dominate their lives following his return to the White House on Monday.
“I just left Walter Reed Medical Center, and it’s really something very special—the doctors, the nurses, the first responders—and I learned so much about coronavirus,” Trump said.
“And one thing that’s for certain, don’t let it dominate you. Don’t be afraid of it. You’re gonna beat it. We have the best medical equipment; we have the best medicines—all developed recently—and you’re gonna beat it.”
“We’re the greatest country in the world,” Trump continued.
“We’re going back, we’re going back to work, we’re gonna be out front. As your leader, I had to do that. I knew there’s danger to it, but I had to do it. I stood out front; I led."
"Nobody that’s a leader would not do what I did, and I know there’s a risk, there’s a danger, but that’s okay. And now I’m better and maybe I’m immune, I don’t know.”
“But don’t let it dominate your lives,” Trump concluded.
Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden slammed Trump's remarks, saying, "I saw a tweet he did, they showed me, he said 'don't let COVID control your life,'" Biden told Florida news station Local 10.
"Tell that to the 205,000 families who lost somebody."
Meanwhile, leftists and media talking heads have called for Trump to be removed from power and charged with crimes after taking a short drive to greet his supporters, who were gathered outside the Walter Reed Medical Center on Sunday.
Washington Post writer Jennifer Rubin exploded on Twitter, calling for his indictment for "reckless endangerment.”
I would hope that if any harm comes to those agents the attorney general of MD will indict Trump for reckless endangerment, assault (yes the virus he gives off count), etc.— Jennifer 'Vote Early' Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) October 4, 2020
She suggested using the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office and called for him to be criminally prosecuted.
