US President Donald Trump bragged about the country’s stock market increase which he called the biggest in half a century, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Addressing the media during a Coronavirus Task Force briefing in Washington DC on Friday, Trump said that in just four days of the current week, excluding the Good Friday holiday, the economy showed “the biggest market increase, stock market increase that we’ve had in 50 years.”
The crazed Trump explained the phenomenon by “a pent up demand,” adding that “I really believe that – there’s something very good going to happen.”
The US President also commented on the World Health Organisation (WHO) the work of which criticised earlier. “As you know, we give them approximately 500 million dollars a year and we’re going to be talking about that subject next week. We’ll have a lot to say about it,” Trump stated.
The US is among the worst-hit countries by the coronavirus pandemic, with the number of cases nearing half a million (499,535) and over 18,500 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
