On February 28 during a rally in South Carolina, Trump referred to the Coronavirus as the new ”hoax” put out by Democrats. He has tried to walk that back.

Fox News commentators also called it a hoax (for example, Sean Hannity on March 9j. You can google it. There are lots of references.

He did not refer to the Corona Virus as a hoax. He referred to the Democrats use of the virus as a political tool as a hoax. He clarified that himself on February 29th. The lefts favorite fact checker Snopes said “ Despite creating some confusion with his remarks, Trump did not call the Coronavirus itself a hoax.” Even 60 minutes interviewer Scott Pelley had to correct Bloomberg after he said in an interview the President called the virus a hoax. Pelley said of Trump “ he said that the Democrats making so much of it is a Democratic hoax, not that the virus was a hoax. “

I posted the video. It's quite clear what he said except when he slurred his words.

The Chump is not someone whose comments you should be trying to explain away. You may actually believe what you say, but he said what he said, just like when he praised Putin and totally insulted the entire U.S. intelligence services and diplomatic corps in Helsinki.
