Trump vaunts his TV ratings amid virus pandemic

This turned out to be a laughable disconnect with reality; as of March 29, there are 135,000 confirmed cases in the USA, with more than 2,000 deaths - a number that has shockingly doubled from 1,000 just a few days earlier.

"So I'm retweeting it", Adam Parkhomenko, a co-founder of the 2016 Ready for Hillary Super PAC, tweeted on Wednesday.

However, fact-checkers have said it is wrong to claim that Trump ever called the coronavirus a hoax.

"It's one person coming in from China, and we have it under control", Trump continued then.
