More than two-thirds of Americans believe that U.S. President Donald Trump did not take the threat of the coronavirus seriously enough – and that is the reason for his own infection. This is reported by Reuters, citing a survey conducted with the participation of Ipsos.
65 percent of respondents – 9 of 10 supporters of the Democratic Party and 5 of 10 Republicans – agreed with the statement “if President Trump took the coronavirus more seriously, he probably would not have been infected.
At that, just a little bit more than one-third of interrogation participants, 34%, thought that the head of the American state voiced the whole truth about the pandemic. More than half of them, 55 percent, believe he was hiding something, and 11 percent found it difficult to answer this question.
The American leader reported the positive test for coronavirus on October 2. He added that his wife Melanie Trump was also diagnosed with the disease. The president promised to start treatment and quarantine immediately.
