Despite the President’s excitement, analysts have seen his behavior as not taking the virus seriously. A professor of political science at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, Todd Eberly, said, “I think the smarter choice for him would be to come out and say: ‘You know I now clearly understand the seriousness of it,’ and try to win over some folks showing a little bit more empathy which is something that he’s not known for,”

President Trump still seems to not understand the gravity of the virus as he was seen in multiple circumstances without precautions, endangering the lives of his own supporters. The presidential “drive by” done by Trump around the perimeter of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in an SUV was considered as completely unnecessary as he waved to his supporters.

“Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential ‘drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die. For political theater,” Dr. James Phillips, an attending physician at Walter Reed and Doctor of Emergency Medicine at George Washington University, said via Twitter on Sunday.

On Tuesday, President Trump took to social media where he claimed that seasonal flu was more deadly than the coronavirus. His words were, “Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid-19, in most populations far less lethal!!!”

Facebook removed the post while Twitter added a label warning of misleading and potentially harmful information about the coronavirus. Twitter further prevented the tweet from being shared. As a response to getting his posts flagged, Trump tweeted, “REPEAL SECTION 230!!!” Under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, online platforms can monitor and take off harmful content without any penalty.

Meanwhile, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected more than 7.45 million people in the United States alone as of Tuesday morning, with 210,195 losing their battle against the life-threatening disease. At least 18 people who are in some way connected to Trump’s reelection campaign, including the White House’s press secretary Kayleigh McEnany along with two of her deputies, have tested positive since the late last week.

While on the other hand, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the deadliest seasonal flu was in 2017, since 2010, which led to the death of 61,000 people, significantly less than the number of deaths caused by the Coronavirus so far.

Commenting on the President’s irresponsible actions, David Smith of the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, said, “When the United States seems to be on the brink of a third wave of the pandemic, which has already killed more than 200,000 people, I don’t think that that irresponsibility is going to be rewarded,”
