Trump has repeatedly assured that his administration has been giving their best to ensure that the nation defeats the pandemic.
He has been mentioning that the US is working at a brilliant speed to make a vaccine for the disease and his administration has been successfully conducting tests all over nation to tackle the virus.
Trump Repeating 'Script'?
Now, a mash-up video made by The Recount shows that the US president has been reading identical scripts during his briefings about the COVID-19 pandemic and US. In the video, which is a mash-up of his briefings, Trump can be seen stating that the US is conducting more than any other country in the world. He also cites the exact same phrases while talking about the deaths of elderly people due to the coronavirus and how they can fast-track the vaccine for 100 million of the 330 million Americans living in the US, as reported by AlterNet.org.
The mash-up made by The Recount was posted on Twitter and it went viral. The caption of the tweet reads," Trump's COVID briefings: same script, different day." Netizens have started reacting to the video as one Twitter user mentioned that as the President cannot conduct rallies for elections, thus he is using the briefings for his political campaigns. Another netizen commented that the scriptwriters for the president are lazy. Another user expressed her anger and mentioned that the White House needs to get some integrity.
With the elections coming, Trump will be hoping that a vaccine is available for the COVID-19 to help him gain ground in his bid for getting re-elected as the US president.
