Unreported Truths author Alex Berenson praised President Trump for urging the American people not to be “afraid” of the coronavirus.
President Trump went to Twitter Monday afternoon and announced that he would be returning to the White House after three nights at Walter Reed Medical Center.
“I’m leaving the large Walter Reed Medical Center at 6:30 pm today. I feel really good!” Exclaimed Trump. “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We developed some really great drugs and knowledge under the Trump Administration. I feel better than 20 years ago!”

CNN BLASTS TRUMPS DEPARTURE FROM WALTER REED: “This is the virus that is coming back to the White House.”
“We’ve let this virus – and media hysteria – dominate us for too long,” wrote Berenson. “We have to take back our lives, our schools and our whole world.”
During his appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Berenson discussed the importance of Trump’s tweet.
“That could be the most presidential thing this president has ever said,” began Berenson. “He doesn’t actually say ‘Don’t be afraid of Covid.’ He says don’t be afraid of each other. Because this is a respiratory virus. It spreads between people. And the only way to make it go away permanently is to lock us all up permanently. And that can’t be inconsistent with life. “
The former New York Times reporter recalled walking around “deserted” Times Square and New York City six months ago comparing it to “like a neutron bomb went off”.

“Six months ago that answer didn’t make sense, but there were reasons for it,” said Berenson. “But we’re six months later and we know that, if you believe that [World Health Organization] and 750 million people were infected with that the death rate is about 1 in 1000 … if you believe the CDC numbers it could be 997 … it’s a tiny death rate. And we went crazy and we sacrificed our children and we sacrificed society and Donald Trump walked out of the hospital today and said what needs to be said. We have to stop being afraid of it. “
He continued, “This country – we put people on the moon! We are the first manned flight in 1903. What happened to us that this rather gritty virus scared everyone to death? I don’t get it, and we have to get it.” from this.”
