I'm sure we've all read and listened to Trump's statements regarding C19. Trump seems to be attempting to guide the country thru this pandemic by the words he uses. During his first news conference with his C19 team he used the words, "It is what it is". At the time I thought those were strange words for him to use. Didn't sound like the usual Trump. I think he had just gotten briefed by his team that "Houston, we have a problem" and he was still trying to wrap his mind around it himself, and he didn't want to stampede the herd. Then he pretty much shut the country down. Today he extended the "shutdown" until April 30th. I believe he knew when he started the first shutdown it would be necessary to extend it until... Today Trump said he'd seen early estimates that 2.2 million people could have died if the government had done nothing in a worst-case scenario, so "if we can hold that down to 100,000" or less, it would be a "good job." I think he could be trying to manage the bad news so that all hell doesn't break loose. In other words, he may have been told by his team to expect up to 2.2 millions fatalities in America caused by C19. He seems to be trying to break it to the country gently. There are other examples of the same type statements, but I don't want to make a long post longer.
