Trump is a congenital liar. Accept nothing he says at face value.
Time and again, he’s been caught red-handed willfully deceiving the public on domestic and geopolitical issues large and small.
Nothing he says can be believed.
He and others infesting his regime relentlessly carpet-bomb the public with mass deception—recently about China and COVID-19 since outbreaks first began.
Claiming last week that US COVID-19 research began months before illnesses were reported belies his earlier deceptive downplaying of outbreaks when they began.
Claiming they were flu-like, he willfully lied saying they’d fade and disappear.
So was saying a vaccine will be developed for widespread use by year-end.
All vaccines are toxic and hazardous to human health and well-being. Anything rushed to market could produce mass casualties.
Despite years of research, no coronavirus vaccines or treatments were ever developed, what may never happen.
Clearly no vaccine is possible this year or early 2021. It takes years to develop them for various diseases. Most attempts fail.
On Monday, Thailand Medical News (TMN) explained the dangers of attempting to rush development of COVID-19 vaccines, saying that vaccine experts know that taking this approach “could end up worsening the infection in some patients rather than preventing it,” adding that studies have shown that “coronavirus vaccines carry the risk of what is known as vaccine enhancement, where instead of protecting against infection, the vaccine can actually make the disease worse when a vaccinated individual is infected with the coronavirus.”
It’s one of the stumbling blocks in developing successful coronavirus vaccines, why there’s never been any.
Some drug companies began COVID-19 vaccines phase one human trials without completing animal studies, a reckless approach.
TMN quoted Baylor College of Medicine’s National School of Tropical Medicine director Dr. Peter Hotez, saying, “[F]rom everything I know, this is not the vaccine to be doing it with.”
Rushing COVID-19 vaccine development will make the cure worse than the disease.
Yet the Big Pharma controlled FDA is taking this approach, concerned only about maximum profits, not human health.
Earlier rushed vaccine development produced disastrous results.
Moderna, Inovia, and other drug companies began human trials without waiting for animal study results.
Their rush to cash in big will likely harm countless numbers of people because of their greed.
As part of his reelection strategy, Trump falsely blames China for his own mishandled response to COVID-19 outbreaks in the US.
Evidence suggests they occurred on US soil and in Europe last year before China’s first outbreaks in December.
On Monday, Beijing’s official People’s Daily broadsheet slammed the Trump regime for baseless anti-China accusations.
Japan’s National Institute of Infectious Diseases explained that China was not responsible for COVID-19 outbreaks in Japanese cities and towns.
Evidence shows outbreaks in Canada were from infected US tourists. The same is likely true for Latin America.
For lack of addressing the issue seriously by Brazil’s Bolsonaro’s regime, the country has more COVID-19 outbreaks than all other Latin American countries combined — an indictment of a failed agenda he’s doing nothing to correct that got two health ministers to resign.
Through Sunday, the US by far leads the world with over 1.5 million COVID-19 cases, around 91,000 deaths.
Steadily rising numbers bear testimony to Trump’s failed agenda.
If things worsen in the run-up to November elections, a combined economic collapse and public health crisis, Trump most likely will be a one-term president.
