Donald Trump still doesn’t seem to understand how quickly and easily the coronavirus is actually spreading. He proved that on Saturday when he claimed that churches should be given a special exception to open up for Easter Sunday – which defeats the whole purpose of social distancing.
“We’re not going to churches on Palm Sunday. But think of next Sunday — Easter,” Trump said.
“And I brought it up before, I said, maybe we could allow special — for churches, maybe we could talk about it. Maybe we could allow them, with great separation outside, on Easter Sunday,” he said.
“I dunno, it’s something we should talk about,” Trump added.
Take a look at his claims in the video clip below:
Trump has no idea how coronavirus is transmitted from person to person and therefore doesn't get why packed churches amid a pandemic is a bad idea. This clip of him talking about how he considered an Easter exemption from social distancing shows it. pic.twitter.com/G4LXzNIGKf
