Coronavirus Was ‘Planned by the Left’ to Harm Trump, ‘Bikers for Trump’ Founder Claims

The founder of the “Bikers for Trump” group claimed the coronavirus pandemic was planned by “the left” to damage the economy and therefore President Trump’s reelection chances.

Chris Cox appeared on CNN Saturday night, telling host Boris Sanchez that the pandemic was “being blown out of proportion” and “polarized by the left because of the simple fact they would like mail in ballots and that might be the only chance they have of beating our president if they have an opportunity to maybe cheat a little bit.”


“There were predictions that over 5% of the people that caught this would actually die when actually it’s less than 1%,” Cox continued. “We have to mitigate these predictions and put them in perspective, and a lot of us believe this might be a ‘plan-demic’ as opposed to a pandemic and I for one am one of them.”
