US CCP Virus Deaths Will Be ‘Substantially Under’ Projected 100,000: Trump

President Donald Trump said the United States will have fewer than 100,000 CCP virus deaths, which some officials had said would be on the lower end of the death toll during the pandemic.

In a Friday afternoon briefing at the White House, the president said the figure will be “substantially under” the 100,000 to 200,000 deaths that were publicly projected several weeks ago.

“The minimum number was 100,000 lives and I think we’ll be substantially under that number,” Trump said, without giving a timetable. “Hard to believe that if you had 60,000, you can never be happy, but that’s a lot fewer than we were originally told and thinking.”
