Donald Trump began his morning of Sunday, January 3, 2021, tweeting. This time he attacked the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
The soon to be ex-President called the organizations reporting on Coronavirus deaths and infection ‘Fake News!.”
As the coronavirus death toll climbs and most states are seeing surges in infections, the outgoing president lashed out at CDC officials for reporting on the numbers to the public.
“The number of cases and deaths of the China Virus is far exaggerated in the United States because of @CDCgov ‘s ridiculous method of determination compared to other countries, many of whom report, purposely, very inaccurately and low. “When in doubt, call it Covid.” Fake News!” he tweeted.
As of January 2, 2020, the United States has recorded over 20.5 million infections and 350 thousand deaths.
To date over 50 politicians, candidates, and government officials at the federal level have tested positive for the virus.
158 diagnosed politicians, candidates, and government officials at the state level were diagnosed.
