Trump Believes Suicides from a Potential Economic Depression Will Far Exceed Those of the Wuhan Virus
President Donald Trump may relax social distancing rules to prevent the “tremendous death” from an economic depression that could potentially be worse than the Wuhan virus itself.
According to Mac Slavo of SHTF Plan, Trump is of the opinion that rash action against the Wuhan virus could cause an economic collapse.
Trump alluded to the fact that an economic depression could lead to potential suicides because of people being out of work. Slavo noted that the 2008 Great Recession resulted in more than 10,000 suicides.
“People get tremendous anxiety and depression and you have suicide over things like this, when you have a terrible economy, you have death,” President Donald Trump said Monday, March 23, 2020 at the White House daily press briefing. Trump contended that the aforementioned suicides would “definitely be in far greater numbers than we’re talking about with regard to the virus.”
The President has maintained a rational response to the Wuhan virus.
His travel bans are indicative of the need to control the border and reassert national sovereignty.
Trump should capitalize on this moment to rail against mass migration and implement stronger closed border measures that protect the country from the illnesses coming from Third World countries.
On the economic front, Trump should balance sustainable growth with public health. As the pandemic subsides, the country should be gradually re-opened for commerce.
