Will be in the Great State of South Carolina tonight, 7:00 P.M., for a really BIG Rally. Best place to be is a Trump Rally. See you later!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
One-minute after this…
President Impeached tweets…
To the people of South Carolina, Tom Steyer is a joke, laughed at by everyone, a total incompetent. He made money in coal, now he “hates” coal. Did you see him fawning over Crazy Bernie? Has no chance, a loser for South Carolina, doesn’t deserve your vote!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
On Saturday South Carolina voters will head to the polls to vote in the Democratic Primary.

President Impeached whined about this…
Worst Polls, just like in 2016 when they were so far off the mark, are the @FoxNews Polls. Why doesn’t Fox finally get a competent Polling Company?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
President Trump is focused like a laser on whatever his television set shows him as the coronavirus outbreak continues.— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) February 28, 2020

“You go around Pennsylvania and you see Trump signs everywhere. The Donald Trump situation is bigger than the Reagan Revolution. Donald Trump has inspired us.” @RjHarris15 WHP580— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
I… uh… don’t know that this can be called a live-tweet, but that thing the president just tweeted where he accidentally tagged a CFL player was from a Fox segment on Saturday February 8. “WHP580″ is the station that airs Harris’ talk radio show.” pic.twitter.com/m1tCzsntqk— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) February 28, 2020
On Thursday evening President Impeached tweeted 9 more times, 5 were related to the coronavirus.
“Anti-Trump Network @CNN doing whatever it can to stoke a national Coronavirus panic. The far left Network pretty much ignoring anyone who they interview who doesn’t blame President Trump.” @trish_regan @FoxNews Media refuses to discuss the great job our professionals are doing!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
Congratulations and thank you to our great Vice President & all of the many professionals doing such a fine job at CDC & all other agencies on the Coronavirus situation. Only a very small number in U.S., & China numbers look to be going down. All countries working well together!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
Wednesday President Impeached named Vice President Mike Pence as the point person to deal with the coronavirus.
He’s working really hard…
“It’s $2,500 to get in the door and $5,000 to take a picture with the vice president, according to an invite obtained by the Tampa Bay Times. And $25,000 buys dinner with him, too.”— Katie Phang (@KatiePhang) February 28, 2020
Our Coronavirus Czar is hard at work! https://t.co/MiO0tsGoVP
It was reportedly earlier that a coronavirus event has been added to Pence’s scheduled. I have been unable to confirm those reports.
“Diagnosis positive: @CNN is infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome. I’m calling out CNN for irresponsibly politicizing what should be a unifying battle against a virus that doesn’t choose sides.” @trish_regan @FoxNews Like I say, they are Fake News!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
So, the Coronavirus, which started in China and spread to various countries throughout the world, but very slowly in the U.S. because President Trump closed our border, and ended flights, VERY EARLY, is now being blamed, by the Do Nothing Democrats, to be the fault of “Trump”.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
The Do Nothing Democrats were busy wasting time on the Immigration Hoax, & anything else they could do to make the Republican Party look bad, while I was busy calling early BORDER & FLIGHT closings, putting us way ahead in our battle with Coronavirus. Dems called it VERY wrong!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 28, 2020
As the News Blender reported on Friday the Dow Jones lost 1,190 points continuing the terrible week on Thursday.
As the Dow closed in the negative for the 4th straight day the Washington Post reported, “Officials at the Department of Health and Human Services sent more than a dozen workers to receive the first Americans evacuated from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, without proper training for infection control or appropriate protective gear, according to a whistleblower complaint.”
They go on to explain that the workers did not show symptoms and were not tested for the coronavirus.
From the article:
The whistleblower is seeking federal protection, alleging she was unfairly and improperly reassigned after raising concerns about the safety of these workers to HHS officials, including those within the office of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. She was told Feb. 19 that if she does not accept the new position in 15 days, which is March 5, she would be terminated.The Washington Post. 02/27/2020
On Friday in the hopes of calming the market Trump Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow reportedly said, “stocks look pretty cheap to me.”

From CPAC, where President Impeached is schuelded to appear on Saturday, the Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said that the media coverage of the coronavirus outbreak was an attempt to “bring down the President.”

He also said that he believes the U.S. might see schools close as the virus spreads to the U.S., community.
Mulvaney downplays the coronavirus, saying it’s “not ebola,” but then adds, “are you gonna see some schools shut down? Probably. Will you see impacts on public transportation? Sure.” pic.twitter.com/y2V5WdBpm6— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 28, 2020
