Trump said that he knew, and didn't know, on the very same day. But, you see, that's not a contradiction to the President. You must be saying to yourself: "Of course it's a lie. Both stories can't be true." Right? Wrong! Not to Donald Trump!
"Have you seen what the Antifa radicals have been doing to these helpless symbols of white supremacy? I mean, 'our heritage'? It's disgusting.

TRUMP: "You know me, everyone knows me as the calm, peaceful, soothing president, right? 'Mr. Peace' they call me, sometimes 'Mr. Peace of' something, I can't remember what."
So, if you grab every book on the subject of Epidemiology that you can get your grubby hands on, and erase everything relating to pandemics; then viruses don't exist anymore, right?
