MAGAT World War 2 history

When they compared Donald Trump hiding Covid-19 to Winston Churchill, it struck a nerve with me.

I don't remember the time where Churchill hid the disaster at Dunkirk from the British people, or that he said that the Blitz was a Labor Party hoax?

However, I do remember Churchill saying this about how they would deal with the Nazi's:

2. Yeah, but that had nothing to do with hiding the facts to keep the population from panicking.

So its not really a valid comparison because in the case of Coventry, he was trying to keep a military secret during wartime.
