President Donald Trump criticized strict lockdowns coming to some European countries. , claiming the restrictions are ineffective as Covid-19 cases surge both there and in the US.
“Europe imposed draconian lockdowns and cases were surging and deaths were surging but think of it, draconian. Now they have to do it all over again. What the hell are they doing? I think I’ll go over and explain it to them,” Trump said.
“But they’re locking down parts of Europe again,” he said at a rally in Michigan.
The comments from President come one day after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced England will enter a second national lockdown in the coming days. Germany, Belgium, France and Greece have also imposed additional lockdown measures.
