Trump was ‘furious’ that 14 Americans infected with coronavirus boarded a plane back to the US from Japan without his permission, which officials admit was a ‘big mistake’

President Donald Trump is reportedly furious after underlings at the State Department decided to fly 14 Diamond Princess passengers who tested positive for coronavirus back to the U.S. without telling him, and against his wishes.

Trump had been told last Saturday that only evacuees who didn’t have symptoms or positive test results would be allowed on State Department charter planes back to the US from Japan, according to the Washington Post.

Officials on the ground realized late in the evacuation process, on the airport tarmac in Tokyo, that 14 of the roughly 350 evacuees had tested positive for the virus. 

State Department underlings made the quick decision to allow the infected citizens onto the flights, but separated from the other passengers within portable bio-containment units that were already on the planes, in case passengers showed symptoms during the flight.

‘It’s important to remember this was an emerging and unusual circumstance,’ said Ian Brownlee, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Consular Affairs. 

‘We had 328 people on buses, a plan to execute and we received lab results on people who were otherwise asymptomatic, un-ill people on a bus on the way to the airport. 

‘The people on the ground did exactly the right thing…in bringing them home.’

    Yes and he is the same guy who said this:
    Trump expressed his “confidence” in China’s ability to tackle the epidemic, the White House said.
    “No, China’s working very hard,” Trump told ABC News’ Karen Travers. “Late last night I had a very good talk with President XI and we talked about mostly about the coronavirus. They’re working really hard and I think they’re doing a very professional job. They’re in touch with the world health organization, CDC also.”

    “It’s a tough situation. I think they’re doing a very good job,” Trump said.

    He has non stop spoke out of both sides of his mouth! Keep calm, come to my rally and adore me!
    MAGA Keep america great!
    Can’t any of these clowns just speak clear Truth? Can they not warn or “shoot straight” with anyone?

      Just heard Trump echo the same praise for china’s president (CPC) xi and his abilities to take care of the corona virus during this mornings “Helicopter presser.”

    The Government Has Lost Control of COVID-19

    Well it was never theirs to “control.” And they never were “in control” of, much less able to control many of the things they have assigned their selves “in control of.!

  3. Bricky says:

    “CDC Director Robert Redfield acknowledged last week that officials expect person-to-person transmission in local communities, whether this year or next.”

    Is it wise for the president to continue flying around the U.S. for his MAGA campaign rally when CDC is not prepared for the wide spread pandemic transmission to implode in our country?

    A little food for thought …
    What If… The November Election Has To Be Postponed?
