Despite Woodward recording, Trump still claims no one knew the severity of the coronavirus

On Wednesday night, President Trump directly contradicted what he’d told Bob Woodward in a recently released recording from early February. Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity just hours after the tapes were released, Trump claimed nobody had any idea how bad the coronavirus could be. But speaking to Woodward as the coronavirus was just beginning to spread, Trump told the famed journalist how dangerous it really was, which was the exact opposite of what he was saying publicly at the time. In the recording, Trump admitted to Woodward that the coronavirus was “deadly stuff” and much worse than the flu.
