Does truth matter? Nature knows only truth, and doesn’t care about “alternative facts.” Here are some alternative facts stated by President Trump and members of his administration:
Trump, February 24: "The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA."
Kudlow and Conway, March 6: “The virus is contained”, and “The virus is being contained.”
Trump, February 26: “I think every aspect of our society should be prepared. I don't think it's going to come to that, especially with the fact that we're going down, not up. We're going very substantially down, not up. Within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that's a pretty good job we've done.”
Trump, February 27: “It's going to disappear. One day -- it's like a miracle -- it will disappear.”
Trump, March 2: "We had a great meeting today with a lot of the great companies and they're going to have vaccines, I think relatively soon. And they're going to have something that makes you better and that's going to actually take place, we think, even sooner." Note that Dr. Fauci had told him earlier that day that it would take a year to a year and a half to come up with a vaccine.
Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services, March 6: "There is no testing kit shortage, nor has there ever been."
Trump, March 6: "Anybody that wants a test can get a test. That's what the bottom line is."
Trump, March 10: “We’re prepared and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away, just stay calm. It will go away.” Later that day in congressional testimony, Dr, Fauci said, “The system is not really geared to what we need right now, what you are asking for, that is a failing. It is a failing, let’s admit it.
Trump, March 16; “It’s a contagious virus, but it’s something we have tremendous control over.” Later that day, Dr. Fauci said: “The worst is yet ahead for us, it’s how we respond to that challenge that’s going to determine what the ultimate endpoint is going to be.”
