Trump: COVID Will Disappear Due To “Herd Mentality”

Forbes reports:

During an ABC News town hall in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump once again insisted to host George Stephanopoulos that the Covid-19 coronavirus would just “disappear” even without a vaccine. This time he added a reason why this would occur.

“You’ll develop, you’ll develop herd, like a herd mentality,” explained Trump. “It’s going to be, it’s going to be herd-developed, and that’s going to happen. That will all happen. But with a vaccine, I think it will go away very quickly.”

Herd what? Have you herd that correctly? The Merriam Webster dictionary defines “herd mentality” as “the tendency of the people in a group to think and behave in ways that conform with others in the group rather than as individuals.”
