During today's complete shitshow of a White House coronavirus task force briefing, impeached and obviously bonkers president Donald John Trump said the U.S. is “near the end of our historic battle” with COVID-19 and has begun to see "the light at the end of the tunnel.”
That light is an oncoming train.
The death toll continues to rise.
Today was the deadliest day of the outbreak yet in America.
Pres Trump just said: "As we near the end of our historic battle" with the coronavirus and that there is now "light at the end of the tunnel."
FACT CHECK: Government's own plan warned pandemic "will last 18 months or longer." Trump himself said this could last until August.

"I can tell you that there's tremendous hope as we look forward and we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel," Trump says, even though the U.S. death toll is continuing to rise.

President Trump also said that the U.S. has begun to see "the light at the end of the tunnel." COVID-19 cases in the U.S. continue to rise and have not yet reached a plateau.
