‘Who believes these numbers?’ Trump claims China MUST be hiding its true Covid-19 death toll, because ‘everybody knows it’

President Donald Trump has opened up his daily Covid-19 task force press conference by blasting the media for reporting official data that makes the US look bad, instead of pursuing allegations of a Chinese conspiracy.

“When the fake news gets out there and they start talking about the United States is number one… China’s number one by a lot. It’s not even close. They’re way ahead of us in terms of death,” Trump said just minutes into his daily briefing.

“Who believes these numbers?” Trump exclaimed, interrupting response coordinator for White House Coronavirus Task Force, Deborah Birx, who was trying to back his statement with visuals of deaths-per-capita around the world.
