As we reported yesterday due to President Trump’s quick and decisive action, the United States has the smallest amount, per capita, of infected Coronavirus residents in the world, but despite this Hillary Clinton said he doesn’t deserve any credit.
On Sunday, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nominee, told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria how the Trump and Obama administrations differ in managing the spread of disease outbreaks.
In early February, President Trump was quick to ban travel with China due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
The President took this action despite opposition from the World Health Organization and Democrat leaders such as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Hillary Clinton LIED when she claimed that President Trump didn’t take the Coronavirus seriously.
As we’ve just shown above President Trump issued the travel ban to China over Trump-Hate bloviating from the WHO, Democrats, and the media.
On February 3rd, World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said after Trump issued his travel ban to China.
“Widespread travel bans and restrictions weren’t needed to stop the outbreak and could have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit.”
In fact, the only ones that couldn’t see the Coronavirus threat through their Trump hated were the Democrats and their surrogates.

Hillary went on to claim that when it came to combating swine flu, it was “all hands on deck” within the Obama administration, which at the time she was the Secretary of State.
There is no comparison to how President Trump’s responded to the coronavirus virus outbreak, to that of Obama’s response to the H1N1 virus
Swine flu pandemic.
In 2009, Barack Obama didn’t declare an H1N1 virus a national emergency until 6-months after it became clear that the H1N1 Virus / Swine Flu was already spreading worldwide.
By the time Obama declared a national emergency in October 2009, over 1,000 Americans had died, 20,000 people hospitalized and millions of people in the United States [had] been infected.
If this is Hillary Clinton’s example of ‘all hands on deck‘ then I’d hate to see the results if Obama had slow-walked his H1N1 response.
TWO WEEKS after it had been debunked by the AP, Hillary Clinton Spews the Democrats Lie That President Trump Cut The CDC Budget
Not only did our article: Watch Bloomberg’s BS Coronavirus Primetime TV Commercial show that the Democrats were lying about President Trump cutting the CDC budget.
But none other than the Associated Press fact-checked Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, and Mike Bloomberg for their asinine CDC budget cut accusations:
- Elizabeth Warren: President Trump cut the CDCs budget to pay for his military buildup which is why the U.S. is unprepared to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
- Mike Bloomberg: “There’s nobody here to figure out what the hell we should be doing. And he’s defunded – he’s defunded Centers for Disease Control, CDC, so we don’t have the organization we need. This is a very serious thing.”
- Joe Biden: comparing the Obama-Biden administration to the current administration, said: “We increased the budget of the CDC. We increased the NIH budget. … He’s wiped all that out. … He cut the funding for the entire effort.”
AP fact-checkers call out the 2020 Democrats for their egregious coronavirus lie:
They’re wrong to say the agencies have seen their money cut. Bloomberg is repeating the false allegation in a new ad that states the U.S. is unprepared for the virus because of “reckless cuts” to the CDC. Trump’s budgets have proposed cuts to public health, only to be overruled by Congress, where there’s strong bipartisan support for agencies such as the CDC and NIH. Instead, financing has increased.
After spewing her revisionist history, for which CNN’s Fareed Zakaria didn’t bother to even push back on even one of her lies,
Hillary Clinton then went on to laughably say about the U.S. Coronavirus response: “But this is not the time to point Fingers”
