Trump’s comments on “Fox & Friends” represented his latest effort to push back on the revelations from Woodward’s book that the president deliberately downplayed the threat of the coronavirus earlier this year.

Trump defended his decision to sit for 18 on-the-record interviews with Woodward for “Rage,” saying he assumed the veteran Washington Post journalist “was a little bit fair” and noted he did not agree to interviews with Woodward for his previous book about the White House in 2018.

“I actually got to read it last night. I read it very quickly and it was very boring,” Trump said in the phone interview. “But there was not much in that book.”

Asked if the book, released Tuesday, was accurate, Trump said it was “fine” and reiterated his defense that he didn’t want to incite “panic” over the coronavirus, which has now killed nearly 200,000 Americans.

“It’s OK, I mean it’s fine. I don’t want to create panic,” Trump said. “People say, you should have gone out there and … jumped up and down, ‘You’re going to die, you’re going to die.’ No, I don’t want to do that.”

“I’ll say it now, we’re rounding the turn on the pandemic. we’re rounding the turn,” Trump insisted while citing declining coronavirus cases in states like Arizona, Florida and Texas.

President Donald Trump and his challenger Joe Biden have fiercely clashed in one of the most chaotic and rancorous White House debates in years.

Amid angry shouting and name calling, the two fought over the pandemic, white supremacy and the economy during the 90-minute forum in Cleveland, Ohio.

Mr Biden called the president a “clown” and told him to “shut up”. Mr Trump brought up drug use by his rival’s son.

Opinion polls suggest Mr Biden has a steady single-digit lead over Mr Trump.

But with 35 days until election day, surveys from several important states show a closer contest.

The debate focused on six topics in 15-minute segments – the candidates’ records, the Supreme Court, the pandemic, race, election integrity and the economy.

LIVE: Trump Holds Campaign Rally in Duluth, Minnesota

Published

on

(Sept. 30) Watch live as President Donald Trump delivers remarks at a Make America Great Again campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota, on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

Trump and Democrat Joe Biden delivered conflicting messages targeting voters across the Midwest on Wednesday as the candidates, their allies and rank-and-file voters sought to move past the most chaotic presidential debate in memory.

The Tuesday night affair raised fresh questions about Trump’s continued reluctance to condemn white supremacy, his efforts to undermine the legitimacy of the election and his unwillingness to respect debate ground rules his campaign had agreed to. Some Democrats called on Biden to skip the next two debates.

Biden’s campaign confirmed he would participate in the subsequent meetings, however, as did Trump’s.
