    The message behind Trumps corona virus propaganda video is that we wants people to think that he was vigilant in trying to stop the corona virus spread in the United States. This is harmful propaganda because its clear that we was slow in taking any precautions. The videos time line starts in March which is very late since the first case of Corona virus in America was in January. Through the use of disinformation Trump is trying to turn people's attention away from this fact and show all that he has accomplished during the month of march.
