Trump vows to send ventilators to Ethiopia, says US supplies are strong

U.S.

President Trump said the US ventilator supply was so good the country could now begin exporting them abroad to help other nations in their fight against COVID-19.

“Just spoke to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali of Ethiopia. His Country needs Ventilators, and the U.S. is in good position to help him. We will!,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “It is a wonderful feeling to know that our States are loaded up with Ventilators, many brand new and high quality just off of our production lines, and that we are now in a position to help other countries that so desperately need them. Every person needing a Ventilator got one!”

The tweets reflect a new confidence that a potentially disastrous ventilator shortage that many feared could lead to significantly more coronavirus deaths in the United States — particularly in New York City, the worldwide epicenter of the virus — has been averted.

In recent days the president has made similar overtures to the leaders of El Salvador, Ecuador and Honduras with offers of ventilators and other assistance.

It was a busy day on Twitter for the president, which began with a number of retweets of the Centers for Disease Control account sharing reliable coronavirus information. He also lauded his own efforts at ramping up testing around the country.

“We have now Tested more than 5 Million People. That is more than any other country in the World, and even more than all major countries combined!” he said.

By 11 a.m., the president moved to politics, taking out his knives for “Do Nothing Democrats” and accusing them of “spending much of their money on Fake Ads” suggesting he had called the coronavirus a hoax.

“I said that the Democrats, and the way they lied about it, are a Hoax. Also, it did start with “one person from China”, and then grew, & will be a ‘Miracle’ end!” he said.
