CA, 11 Sep 2020
In a tense exchange with a reporter, U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said he didn’t lie to the American people, after the release of the Bob Woodward tapes revealed he admitted to downplaying the threat-level of the novel coronavirus, because the nation had to be “calm” and “not panicked” amid the pandemic.

During the exchange, Trump mentioned that the seasonal flu can also be deadly, like COVID-19.
