By | August 11, 2020

Trump says the Spanish Flu in 1917 “probably” ended the Second World War. The Spanish Flu was in 1918 and WWII ended in 1945. It’s “probably” a good thing the Secret Service cut that press conference short.

Trump and Spanish Flu in 1917 Spanish Flu.

President Donald Trump erroneously stated Monday that the Spanish Flu of 1918 ended World War II, incorrectly citing both the year the pandemic occurred and the year that the Second World War ended.

The events took place more than two decades apart.

“The closest thing is in 1917, they say, the great pandemic. It certainly was a terrible thing where they lost anywhere from 50 to 100 million people, probably ended the Second World War,” Trump said. “All the soldiers were sick. That was a terrible situation.” USA Today Reported.

It is amazing how numb people have become to accuse someone of spying and treason and get no response! Claim WW2 was ended by the Spanish flu! No response! The media needs to be better and realize the majority of people will and want to support them! They need to band together!
