Skip to comments.Donald Trump Says Ebola Patients Should Be Barred from U.S.

Donald Trump expressed panic over news that an Ebola patient will be flown to a specialized isolation unit at an Atlanta hospital. The billionaire took to Twitter on Wednesday to suggest that American borders should be closed to anyone with the virus that has killed 729 people in West Africa. That would apparently include two U.S. citizens a doctor and a missionary who are fighting for their lives in Liberia.
"Stop the EBOLA patients from entering the U.S. Treat them, at the highest level, over there. THE UNITED STATES HAS ENOUGH PROBLEMS!" Trump tweeted. Some of the replies pointed out that health officials say the unit at Emory University Hospital was built specifically to contain a disease like Ebola, and that the virus is not as easily transmitted as the flu. CDC Director Thomas Frieden says that even if Ebola were to arrive in the U.S., it could be stamped out and poses little risk...

Obama’s SS will obtain MANY samples to use
as weapons later in his War against the American people.
Since there’s no cure for an easily communicable, extremely deadly disease, then everyone who has even a hint of a chance of exposure should be quarantined for the incubation time, and if found positive, then permanently quarantined.
A quarantine is the medical version of declaring war.
send the ones that are us citizens to gitmo
Anyone who has read the novel The Hot Zone knows that this disease is absolutely horrifying. It is also lethally "hot" - as it can be transmitted very, very easily.
The symptoms start with a piercing headache, followed by horrible vomiting and bleeding all over the body which is loaded with the virus.
The movie "Outbreak" was a tame, stupid Hollywood depiction that masked the horrors of this disease.
The one patient who was brought here was an American serving with missionary group. Two people on the mission (which cared for
Ebola patients) got it, and I read this morning that they has one dose of an experimental serum sent from the US and the other person who had contracted Ebola asked them to give her the dose. They are both still alive, sfaik, but I think it’s actually a good idea to monitor her here and see if the serum is effective.
It’s heading our way in any case.
Thank you, Mr. Trump.
Agree with Trump. Been thinking the same since I read about the Ebola patient being flown to the U.S. Probably better for the patient to be treated by specialists over there than to endure the long trip here.
Reeks of politics.
What happens if the jet crashes on landing or approach?
Bill Ayers is jactitating with glee!
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
This post is one where a “Like” button would be great to have!
trump is an obnoxious buffoon....
but he’s right on this one...
like what could possibly go wrong with bringing people who are known health risks over here?
Anything can happen. Playing with fire IMO.
Well I won’t call Trump names, cause he is an American & does care about America much more than the current occupant of the WH! I’d rather see Trump as president! He’s exactly right on about this,
>>Donald Trump expressed panic<<
NBC bias much? It’s not panic...it’s common freakin’ sense.
Maybe someone should que our politicians in to the fact that this is one disease that is not specific to a particular voting bloc.
I sort of agree with trump.
The problem is what is the “highest level” they can get over there? It may not be as high as Trump is thinking.
Still it seems like the transport itself would be challenging to the patient. I question the wisdom of bringing them home prior to the illness being resolved.
The medical faculty who are counting on a near lifetime of guaranteed publications and a massive funding stream from this are too scared to actually GO to Africa.
They’d rather risk all of the rest of us here.
So should slavery aka islam!
