The pandemic in the US will probably get worse before it gets better, President Trump said in opening comments at a press briefing Tuesday.
“Some areas of our country are doing very well, others are doing less well,” the President said. “It will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better. Something I don’t like saying about things, but that’s the way it is.”
“You look all over the world, it’s all over the world,” Trump said, despite the fact that many countries have seen their Covid case numbers drop dramatically.
The President has consistently had an optimistic tone over the course of the pandemic, often repeating that the virus will “go away.”
