All of America, that loves America just the way it is, is praying for our President, our First Lady, Hope, & all Americans that have the China Flu. I have taken a personal vow not to ever knowingly order, or buy, anything from China, because I believe they purposely sent this illness out into the world. I stand with President Trump, & I believe, that China should pay, & pay dearly, for what they have done to the entire world.

Why is the VP tested daily? What is with the paranoia in this county? I truly hoe that when Trump is reelected, the first thing he does is fire Fauci, Birx, and Redfield! Then he needs to get some REAL virologists in those positions, people who know science!
