What Trump Knew and When He Knew It

What did Trump know about the Coronavirus? It was the biggest national security threat of his presidency and far worse than anyone imagined.

When did he know it? January 28, 2020

Why did he not speak up then?

“I wanted to always play it down,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Woodward on March 19. “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”

The New York Times, September 9, 2020

When did Trump finally speak the truth about the virus to the American people, including all of those who have pinned their hope on him? Today is September 10, 2020 and we are still waiting.

I had only one nerve left and Trump has finally gotten on it. That’s all I can handle today. More over the weekend.

My name is Tom Klaus and I am the founder and president of Tenacious Change. I am convinced the secret to almost any good thing happening among people is relational trust. Want to be loved by your spouse, children, and family? Want to work well with others? Want to be an effective leader? Want to help your neighborhood, community, state, or country change for the good? Want world peace...actually, peace with anyone? Building relational trust is when fear, animosity, conflict, and the status quo begins to transform into cooperation, respect, collaboration, peace, and working together for social change and the greater good of all. A good day for me is when I can help social profit, nonprofit, and public leaders and their organizations grasp the importance of relational trust, let it guide their decision making, and inform their strategy. This is just one of the ways that I am animating and equipping leaders, organizations, and communities to lead change for the greater good.
