Eric Trump Claims Coronavirus Is Democratic Hoax, Will ‘Magically’ Vanish After 2020 Election

Eric Trump claimed Saturday that the coronavirus will “magically” vanish after the November election and allow the country to fully reopen – an assertion that has no basis in science and is contradicted by health experts worldwide.

In an interview with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro, Trump suggested the president’s critics were using the pandemic to undermine his father’s rallies, calling it a “cognizant strategy” that would cease once it was no longer politically expedient.

“They think they are taking away Donald Trump’s greatest tool, which is being able to go into an arena and fill it with 50,000 people every single time,” the younger Trump said. “You watch, they’ll milk it every single day between now and November 3. And guess what, after November 3, coronavirus will magically, all of a sudden, go away and disappear and everybody will be able to reopen.”

He also criticized former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, and boasted about crowd sizes at President Donald Trump’s political events.

The Biden campaign pushed back against Trump’s comments, calling them “unbelievably reckless.”

“We’re in the middle of the biggest public health emergency in a century, with almost 90,000 Americans dead, 1.5 million infected, and 36 million workers newly jobless,” said Biden communications director Kate Bedingfield in a statement. “So for Eric Trump to claim that the coronavirus is a political hoax that will ‘magically’ disappear is absolutely stunning and unbelievably reckless.”

She also accused the Trump administration of being “desperate to do whatever they can to throw up a smoke screen to try to conceal his historic mismanagement of this crisis.”

Leading health officials have repeatedly warned that the coronavirus will not go away by fall and that a surge in cases toward the end of the year could be even harder to manage than the current outbreak.

Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious-disease expert, said late last month the global spread of the disease made it “inevitable” that the coronavirus would return or linger beyond fall. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told The Washington Post that a second wave of covid-19 could be worse than the first because it would coincide with the flu season.

President Trump has acknowledged that the pandemic will remain a public health problem for months. Earlier this month, he said that although he is convinced covid-19 will disappear on its own, it “doesn’t mean it’s going to be gone, frankly, by fall or after the fall.”

  1. The headline is false, he didn’t say hoax.
    But what he DID say is absolutely true.
    The evil Dems want more dead, more unemployment and more misery.
    They don’t give a darn about humans. They want Trump out and themselves in.

    • Who says he’s still around? Didn’t he say last week that he self-quarantined and will be tested every day? In other words, he’s on house arrest and will have daily investigations. All political figures who have coronavirus were coronavirused; a term used for the sick as well as for criminals arrested/executed to keep the calm in the world.

  2. on Election Day when TRUMP WILL WIN WITH A LANDSLIDE the DemocRATS will stop their “politicaly” attack about the China Virus

  3. the thing is, he didnt say the coronavirus is a hoax, he said “they will milk it everyday…. And after the election it will magically go away, disappear”… He isnt saying the virus is a hoax, he’s saying the unexplained, non-scientific, method of ‘mitigation’, is a hoax

    • “the coronavirus will “magically” vanish after the November election and allow the country to fully reopen – an assertion that has no basis in science and is contradicted by health experts worldwide.”
      OF COURSE it has no basis in science because it’s a politically move hoping the “invisible enemy” the Deep State criminals will be arrested by Nov and their DUMBs destroyed.

  4. Eric Trump is stupid if her really believes it will magically disappear.. Although I am a Trump supporter I wish they wouldn’t shoot off at the mouth without thinking

    • He’s not saying Corona will go away, he’s saying that the draconian shut downs will and he’s right.
      We may have another bout, but it will be dealt with very differently in a non election year (especially if its a Dem president)

    • Then you shouldnt be a Trump supporter. Trump’s entire modus operandi is shooting off the mouth without thinking. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

  5. Nutcase. I guess he lives in his own bubble and doesn’t know of dozens of people personally who have succumbed to this terrible disease.

    • Sadly hundreds have died and thousands are still sick from the flu/pneumonia, the plannedemic they spread from their lab. But Eric Trump is not talking about this coronavirus. Coronavirus = 1) all kinds of sickness and injuries 2) eradicating elite evil 3) rescuing children

      Now that censorship from Google has been removed (since one of Trump’s people bought a share), you have no excuse not to know what’s happening in the world and claim ignorance.

        • 5:13 is a post with hints for intelligent people who want to know the truth and investigate further. Guys like you, 9:57, should stick with CNN, WaPo, AP and MSNBC and make believe you know what’s happening in the world.

      • i personally know 2 people who had it. they both had high fever couldnt taste or smell and had various problems that neither the flu nor pneumonia give a person. but i guess its a hoax and is just the flu or pneumonia, because that definitely makes sense

        • Had what? They have yet to define what coronavirus is. Currently it’s every single sickness and accidents in the world, including sneezing. So thanks to this new coronavirus, nobody had the flu, nobody had car accidents and nobody had heart-attacks. Only idiots go along with their meshugas.

  6. Hey matzav, A little bit of a lie is a lie just as much!

    That’s not what he was saying. He was saying that the problems caused by the Wuhan Virus would give away after the election. The reason, probably the biggest reason would be, because one way or another, all those Democrat governors who are holding their people hostage by not reopening the states and their economies, will open the states at that point.

  7. He is 100% right.
    No, the coronavirus isn’t a hoax and he didn’t say it is, either. But the media’s treatment of it and its hysterical reaction to any suggestion of opening up the economy, the way anyone – even if they’re credentialed and speaking from their own medical experience – who goes against the zeitgeist of panic and extremism, who suggests that maybe things should have been done differently and could still be done differently, are pilloried, is directly related to Democrat’s fear that Trump will be reelected.

    They are hoping that if the economy stays shut until November, they will be able to use it as a political weapon to destroy Trump. They don’t care how many people lose their jobs, how many people face financial ruin, because they could care less about anyone other than the coastal elites anyway.

    So Eric Trump is on the money about this. Literally.

  8. Joe Biden will just hole himself up in the basement of the White House while the democRATic swamp returns to rob the treasury. DemocRATs want everyone dead and out of work so they can defeat Trump. Most of the dead are from democratic states but they are brain dead.

  9. Matzav please change your headline, it’s a lie and chillul Hashem.

    You could say the Democrats screaming Corona is FAKE.

    He never said that it’s a COVID-19 is /was a hoax NOR did He imply it.

    All he said was that the Dems are using it and hurting many people for political purposes. It’s started by banning Hydroxychloroquine and keeping businesses closed.

    Eric trump is 1000% correct.

    By the way is it interesting that states with Democrat governors have about 10 times more death and sicknesses than Republican Governors

  10. There must be a paid PR flack working for the Democratic baby killers writing some these articles and headlines.

    • So you must love Cuomo’s positions:
      “Every life is important!”
      “My mother’s life is important, too”
      “Why did I wait five weeks to override my health department’s order to send recuperating COVID patients into nursing homes causing 4,000+ deaths? Oh, they would have died anyway!”

  11. What’s the story with the Dolphins this year? Will they improve at all with all their draft picks they got? Or is it a race, straight down to the cellar of the AFC East?
