President Donald Trump’s long-expected wild Axios interview with Jonathan Swan finally broadcasted on Monday night and it was an intense ride that left Twitter users shocked.
Trump attempted to paint a beautiful picture of coronavirus pandemic, claiming “we’re last, meaning we’re first” in aim to downplay the death rise and current surge in fatalities.
President Donald Trump doubled down on his well-wishes for Ghislaine Maxwell, the longtime partner of child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein, who is in prison and facing her own charges.
“I do wish her well,” Trump said. “I’m not looking for anything bad for her.”
Donald Trump was also questioned in regards of the legacy of the late Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who passed on last month at the age of 80. Trump dwelled on the fact that Lewis didn’t attend his inauguration, then downplayed the civil rights icon while applauding himself.
“Nobody has done more for Black Americans than I have,” Trump said. “He should’ve come.”
Twitter users applauded Swan’s interviewing skills. As for the president’s performance, not so much comments were passed onto him:
.@jonathanvswan: “Oh, you’re doing death as a proportion of cases. I’m talking about death as a proportion of population. That’s where the U.S. is really bad. Much worse than South Korea, Germany, etc.”@realdonaldtrump: “You can’t do that.”
Swan: “Why can’t I do that?” pic.twitter.com/MStySfkV39

After watching the new full video of @realDonaldTrump’s interview with @axios, I think @ProjectLincoln & @gtconway3d et al have driven Trump into full blown lunacy. It is amazing how there are no limits to how proudly Trump shows off his mental deterioration & narcissism.

Trump must change his strategy before November's Election he won't win if he'll continue denying the impact of coronavirus on the US
