Trump Says We Must ‘Get Back To Work’ While Comparing Coronavirus To Car Accidents: ‘I Brought Some Numbers’

Donald Trump went on a rant during a virtual Fox News town hall on Tuesday, claiming that we shouldn’t shut down the country for the coronavirus because we don’t shut down roads due to car accidents.

While many medical experts have advised Trump to keep the quarantine going for longer than the two-week initial shutdown period, Trump said that he wants people to go back to their normal routine as soon as April begins.

Trump tried to back up his case by comparing the pandemic to car accidents.

“Look, we lose thousands — I brought some numbers here,” Trump said. “We lose thousands and thousands of people a year to the flu, we don’t turn the country off — every year. When I heard the number — you know, we averaged 37,000 people a year. Can you believe that? This year we are having a bad flu season, but we lose thousands of people a year to the flu — we never turn the country off.”

“We lose much more than that to automobile accidents,” he continued. “We didn’t call up the automobile companies and say, ‘Stop making cars, we don’t want cars anymore.’ We have to get back to work.”
