Trump is........in love with his own BS!



On March 17 2020 Donald Trump told the world's media: 

“This is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.”

But this is complete bullshit, of course.

Because from the end of January and all the way through February 2020 Trump was focused on golfing, holding campaign rallies and playing down the seriousness of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Have a look at the timeline below which speaks for itself.
