Donald Trump’s troubling comments about the coronavirus pandemic come under the spotlight in a critical new segment from CNN’s Chris Cillizza.

Cillizza, in the video released Thursday, listed the president’s 10 most outrageous claims regarding the public health crisis that has to date killed more than 24,000 people worldwide.

“All of his words are making things worse,” Cillizza concluded the clip.
