The Independent reports:
Donald Trump has repeated a claim that the coronavirus is going to “just disappear”, a day after the United States announced a record number of new cases.
“I think we’re gonna be very good with the coronavirus. I think that at some point that’s going to, sort of, just disappear — I hope,” Mr Trump told Fox Business on Wednesday.
The president’s comments come as more than 48,000 coronavirus cases were announced across the country on Tuesday, the highest daily number since the pandemic began.
Unbelievable. He’s still doing it. Trump is still – TODAY – claiming that the virus is going to magically disappear. I cannot believe that a human being could be this obtuse.pic.twitter.com/39lMlr6zGX

Trump tells Fox Business — again, still, now, in July — that the coronavirus will “just sort of disappear” at some point. He adds, “I hope.”
Asked if he still believes that, Trump says, “Yeah. Sure. At some point.”

Mr. President, drinking bleach and injecting Lysol won’t make it disappear. https://t.co/ZMchGWGX9W
