“... if Mr Kushner and Ms Trump are genuinely concerned about salvaging their reputations,
they would do well to stop suppressing truthful criticism and instead turn their attention
to the Covid-19 crisis that is still unfolding under their inept watch.
“These billboards are not causing [their] standing with the public to plummet.
Their incompetence is.”
letter from, M Sanderson, attorney for the Lincoln Project, to M Kasowitz, an attorney for Ms Trump & Jared Kuhner
What Trump Knew - on the 28th of January 2020
'It’s so easily transmissible, you wouldn’t even believe it.'
Donald Trump, 13 April 2020
On the 28th of January 2020, national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, warned President Trump that Covid-19 would be the 'biggest national security threat' to his already crisis-ridden presidency.
Three days later, Trump announced restrictions on travel from China, although the coronavirus, by that date, was already well established in the United States.
Later, on 7 February, in a phone call with Bob Woodward, Trump stated, in uncharacteristically clear terms, what he had come to understand about just how lethal the coronavirus could be:
“It goes through the air," Trump stated. "That’s always tougher than the touch. You don’t have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed. And so that’s a very tricky one."
"That’s a very delicate one," Trump continued. "It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flus.”
As damning as the Woodward tapes of his conversations with Donald Trump are, the 28th of January is by no means the first briefing Trump had received from his intelligence agencies concerning the emerging coronavirus pandemic.
It must be remembered that the so-called, gang of eight, top members of the intelligence committees of both houses of congress, had been given an intelligence briefing on the spread of the coronavirus, during the first week of January 2020.
It is customary for the president to be briefed, before the select members of congress are. We know that, at least, two members of the gang of eight, one Democrat the other a Republican, found what they were told so alarming that immediately after the intelligence briefing, sold most, if not all of their shareholdings on the stock exchange.
Therefore, it can be reasonably deduced, pending exact date verification, that Trump was briefed on the coronavirus, before the members of congress were, while the virus was raging in Central China, which would place Trump's initial briefing no later than the end of December 2019.
