image for Trump claims he is ‘getting great marks’ for coronavirus response as US death toll nears 80,000

Donald Trump claimed he was “getting great marks” for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, despite the US having the highest death toll in the world.

“We are getting great marks for the handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic, especially the very early BAN of people from China, the infectious source, entering the USA,” Mr Trump wrote.

It is unclear what the president’s source was for the claim, but recent polls have suggested that a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of the coronavirus.

Some 51.1 percent of Americans disapprove, while 43.5 approve, according to an aggregate of polls by FiveThirtyEight.

More than 20 million Americans lost their jobs in April in the worst crisis since the Great Depression.

More than 78,000 Americans have died so far from the virus — the highest death toll anywhere in the world.

Katie Miller, a spokesperson for vice president Mike Pence, has also tested positive, as did a military valet to president Trump. »
