President Trumps head popped up during his top-secret intelligence briefing in the Oval Office on Jan. 28 when the discussion turned to the coronavirus outbreak in China.
This will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency, national security adviser Robert C. OBrien told Trump, according to a new book by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward. This is going to be the roughest thing you face.
Matthew Pottinger, the deputy national security adviser, agreed. He told the president that after reaching contacts in China, it was evident that the world faced a health emergency on par with the flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide.
Ten days later, Trump called Woodward and revealed that he thought the situation was far more dire than what he had been saying publicly.
You just breathe the air and thats how its passed, Trump said in a Feb. 7 call. And so thats a very tricky one. Thats a very delicate one. Its also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.
This is deadly stuff, the president repeated for emphasis.

THE NEWEST TACTIC....
This may be the most absurd attack yet. What is Trump supposed to do? Start a panic?
You have to give the Marxists credit, they are always on the same page.
AND there you have it ...right on time....a coordinated hit job!!
Why does a guy that spends as much time talking about fake news give interviews to a blatant partisan such as Bob Woodward? Why? I am so sick of covering for Trumps flippant mouth.
it’s about as deadly as a bad flu year we get every few decades.
More. Election. Year. Excrement.
He had already shut down flights to China, and this conversation was before Pelosi was encouraging everyone to come out to Chinatown.
was O’Brien the leak?
Okay, I’m not going to subscribe to the Compost in order to read this, so can somebody tell just me what happens after “LISTEN:?”
Another hoax by The Compost.
Fauci, February 2019: Risk of coronavirus in US is minuscule:
But it’s not.
But now we know that was BUNK! Covid is less deadly than common flu for those under 40!
“Trump knew the meteor was going to destroy the earth but made it sound like we’d be fine. So, now that ‘scientists’ were wrong and it missed us, we need to blame him for lying.”
Was that before or after Trump said to go party in China Town?
Or called any cessation of flights from China racist?
Or sent the infected to old folks homes to knock off expensive eaters?
Woodward is so full of poop, Im beginning to think Nixon got a raw deal.
