'I didn't lie' Donald Trump defends downplaying coronavirus after Bob Woodward claims

Telegraph, 11 Sep 2020
The US President responded to widespread criticism for downplaying the virus after claims in the book, 'Rage', written by Bob Woodward, the Washington Post journalist who broke the Watergate scandal in 1972

It's based on 18 interviews with Mr Trump between December and July and largely devoted to domestic US issues, including the president’s admission that he had been briefed that coronavirus was more deadly than the flu before the first case was reported in the US but that he wanted to play down the crisis.
