During a 90-minute town hall hosted by ABC News in the must win battleground of Pennsylvania, Trump defended his repeated assertion that the virus will eventually disappear even without a vaccine, citing what he called "herd mentality," an apparent reference to "herd immunity."

ABC News' Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked Trump whether the coronavirus "would go away without the vaccine?"

"Sure, over a period of time. Sure, with time it goes away - - " Trump responded.

Stephanopoulos interjected: "- - And many deaths."

"And you'll develop, you'll develop herd - - like a herd mentality. It's going to be - - it's going to be herd developed - and that's going to happen. That will all happen," Trump said.

All the trump supporters attending rallies without masks will test the herd "mentality" theory.

It should probably go without saying, but no experts actually recommend infecting hundreds of millions of people and causing mass death from Covid as a way to build herd immunity. This idea essentially amounts to killing off over three million Americans.

I think Trump is really wanting a vaccine...saw him in a video last night saying three or four weeks. Wants to be the first with the vaccine.

But also, many health officials I respect have said Covid is here to stay so Trump is kind of correct. It is here now, it has been here...it is beyond containment as we just can't get people to stay the crap home or even wear masks to let this virus die down... So in the end it probably will be like a herd immunity. This will be like seasonal flu.

Well, of course COVID-19 will in some way 'dissappear' if you wait long enough. Just like the plague did.
This is one of these senseless platidudes he regularly states. They're basically meant to mean something he doesn't actually so you can't really argue against it.
Like his comment on the California wildfires: "It'll start getting cooler. You just watch." Duh!

And one day it'll be cooler and one day the wildfires will be out and and one day in the future this pandemic will be over he'll be like "I told you!"
