Donald Trump lives in a reality show world. He is compelled to spin the message to keep his ratings high with his fan base. He will lie to do it. He will let people fall ill to do it. He will let people die to do it.
Here is some evidence supporting our conclusion:
The CDC was not permitted to brief the public on Coronavirus by the Trump administration. Instead, Trump chose to control communications spinning the information to support his view that the virus was either not widespread or is just going to disappear. Trump’s current message is reflected by this NBC Headline: “Trump says he thinks coronavirus will 'just disappear' despite rising cases…Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday that he "would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000" new cases per day.”
Trump is spinning a message to gain a political advantage. He continues to pander to his base because he knows that is wear his “ratings” are the strongest.
As evidence of Trump’s continued efforts to fool the American people consider this report on Trump’s efforts to quash Coronavirus reports from the CDC:
“The CDC was denied permission by the White House to brief the public on the coronavirus crisis, a source at the agency told Yahoo News.
The CDC found itself unable to do public briefings for three months, beginning not long after a senior official warned in late February that the virus was likely to hit the US hard.
At the time, this was a sharp contrast with predictions from President Donald Trump, who argued that the coronavirus did not seriously threaten the US.
Between March 9 and June 12 there were no CDC briefings. In that period, Trump increasingly led communications on the virus, spreading false claims and touting unproven cures.” CNBC
Trump’s efforts to spread propaganda resulted in a failure to propose a comprehensive plan to contain the virus stopping its spread. Trump’s efforts led to valuable medical information being withheld from the American public. Trump’s efforts led to a deathly spread of the virus causing illness and death. Trump’s efforts led to 2.74 million infections and 130,000 deaths.
If you think Trump has your interests in mind, this sobering news should convince you otherwise.
Trump is all about Trump and nobody else. He is not changing despite the rise in infections and in deaths. Why?
Because he simply does not care.

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
