US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Coronavirus had a devastating effect on the United States – worse than an attack on the Pearl Harbor air base during World War II and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks when the World Trade Center towers collapsed, US President Donald Trump said.
“We survived the worst attack in our country’s history. It’s worse than Pearl Harbor and the World Trade Center,” Trump said.
According to him, “this should not have happened,” and “such an attack never happened.” Trump again accused China of concealing the first signs of the spread of the epidemic, which left little time for other countries to prepare for the pandemic.
In his tweets, Trump admitted that the country was not ready for an epidemic: there were not enough ventilation devices, masks and gloves. But, he assured, production in the country filled this deficit.
“Fans, which were few and in poor condition, are now produced by thousands,” said Trump. “Gloves, dressing gowns, etc. are now in abundance.”
The United States has been leading the world for more than two weeks in terms of the number of patients with coronavirus and their mortality: over 1.2 million infected and over 70 thousand deaths. On December 7, 1941, Japan, an ally of Nazi Germany, attacked Pearl Harbor: Japanese aircraft completely bombed the US military base in Hawaii, over 2.2 thousand Americans died in a few hours.
The terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001 claimed the lives of about 3 thousand people, becoming the most devastating in history. Two passenger aircraft rammed the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York, a third plane crashed into the building of the US Department of Defense near the capital. Another plane crashed in Pennsylvania after passengers tried to defuse terrorists.
