Trump claims he ’up-played’ the coronavirus in action

President Trump on Tuesday denied that he downplayed the threat of COVID-19, claiming instead that he ’up-played’ the danger of the disease through his actions. Trump’s assertion came less than a week after the release of audio from an interview with Bob Woodward in which he said, ’I wanted to always play it down...I still like playing it down’.

Avoiding a panic by keeping information limited and giving mixed signals? That’s perhaps a bit worse actually than playing it down.

He didn't create panic but he took decisive action. It's not a contradiction.
