TRAVEL BAN — TEXTO E GLOSSÁRIO

President Donald Trump set out to steady a rattled nation and a diving economy in a solemn Oval Office address, but instead sowed more confusion and doubts that he is up to handling the fast-worsening coronavirus crisis.

  • SET OUT (phrasal verb) = to explain, describe, or arrange something in a clear and detailed way, especially in writing [definir, delinear, estipular]
  • STEADY (v.) /ˈstedi/ = to hold something firmly without shaking or moving it [estabilizar, equilibrar]
  • RATTLE (v.) /ˈræt(ə)l/ = to make someone feel nervous or angry [abalar, amedrontar]
  • DIVE (v.) /daɪv/ = to lose value very quickly [despencar]
  • SOLEMN (adj.) /ˈsɑləm/ = involving serious behavior or serious attitudes [solene, sério, formal]
  • ADDRESS (n.) /əˈdres/ = a formal speech given by someone to a group of people, especially as part of an important occasion [discurso, pronunciamento]
  • SOW (v.) /soʊ/ = to plant seeds in the ground [semear]
  • SOW FEAR / DOUBT / CONFUSION etc. (expr.) = to make people feel afraid, doubtful, confused, etc. [disseminar confusão e dúvida]
  • UP TO (expr.) = capable of or fit for [capaz, competente, preparado/a]
  • HANDLE (v.) /ˈhænd(ə)l/ = to take action in order to deal with a difficult situation [enfrentar, tratar, gerenciar, cuidar]
  • CRISIS (n.) /ˈkraɪsɪs/ = an urgent, difficult, or dangerous situation [crise]Cf. CRISIS x CRISES

Trump spoke to the nation at a fearful moment, when the rhythms of everyday American life are starting to shut down — with schools closing, the NBA suspended, hospitals on high alert and movie icon Tom Hanks saying he and his wife have the disease.

  • FEARFUL (adj.) /ˈfɪrf(ə)l/ = (old fashioned) frightening [assustador]
  • SHUT DOWN (phrasal verb) = cease to operate or cause to cease operating [paralisar]

“The virus will not have a chance against us. No nation is more prepared or more resilient than the United States,” the President said, before painting a rosy picture of an economy that is already taking a beating from the virus fallout. The President unveiled several measures to help on that score, to help workers who lack sick pay but have to self-isolate and are hard-hit by shutdowns, though his call for a payroll tax cut is not popular in Congress.

  • ROSY (adj.) /ˈroʊzi/ = likely to be successful or happy [favorável, otimista, positivo]
  • TAKE A BEATING (expr.) = to be beaten badly in a game or contest, often used figuratively to suggest a setback or loss [levar uma surra]
  • FALLOUT (n.) /ˈfɔlˌaʊt/ = the unpleasant effects of something that has happened [consequência]
  • UNVEIL (v.) /ʌnˈveɪl/ = to announce something officially that was previously a secret [revelar, divulgar, anunciar]
  • ON THIS / THAT SCORE (expr.) = used for referring to something that has just been mentioned [nesse sentido, nesse tema]
  • LACK (v.) /læk/ = to not have any or enough of something that you need or want [carecer de, ser desprovido de]
  • SICK PAY (expr.) = money that you are given by an employer or the government when you are sick and cannot work [licença médica remunerada]
  • SHUTDOWN (n.) /ˈʃʌtˌdaʊn/ = an occasion when a machine or factory stops working temporarily [paralisação, interrupção, fechamento provisório, suspensão temporária das atividades]
  • PAYROLL (n.) /ˈpeɪˌroʊl/ = a list of all the people that a company employs and the money that each of them earns [folha de pagamento]

Trump’s big announcement for keeping the virus at bay — what he said was a 30-day ban on travel to the US by Europeans and restrictions on cargo — was immediately engulfed in confusion.

  • AT BAY (expr.) = forced to turn and face attackers; at a distance — used with keep or hold [encurralado, acuado; afastado, distante]
  • CARGO (n.) /ˈkɑrɡoʊ/ = things that are being sent by ship, airplane, train, or truck [carga, mercadorias]
  • ENGULF (v.) /ɪnˈɡʌlf/ = to cover or surround something in a way that harms or destroys it [estar envolto em, estar coberto de, estar comprometido por]

The President later rushed to clarify on Twitter that he was stopping travel and not trans-Atlantic trade in goods, and officials said his plan did not apply to Americans or US permanent residents — though such travelers would face mandatory quarantines.

  • TRADE (n.) /treɪd/ = the activities of buying and selling goods or services [comércio (internacional)]
  • OFFICIAL (n.) /əˈfɪʃ(ə)l/ = someone with an important position in an organization [autoridade, dirigente, alto funcionário, executivo]Cf. OFFICIAL
  • QUARANTINE (n.) /ˈkwɔrənˌtin/ = a situation in which a person or animal that might have a disease is kept separate from other people or animals so that they do not catch the disease [quarentena]

“The restriction stops people not goods,” Trump tweeted after his speech.

  • SPEECH (n.) /spitʃ/ = a formal occasion when someone speaks to an audience [discurso, pronunciamento]

Trump also caused a muddle when he said he had convinced health insurance providers to waive all copayments for coronavirus treatments.

  • MUDDLE (n.) /ˈmʌd(ə)l/ = a confused situation or condition [confusão]
  • WAIVE (v.) /weɪv/ = to choose to officially ignore a rule, right, or claim [dispensar, abrir mão de, perdoar, renunciar a]
  • COPAYMENT (n.) /koʊˈpeɪmənt/ = a payment made by a beneficiary (especially for health services) in addition to that made by an insurer (also: copay) [coparticipação]

A White House official later said the President had meant to say that the copayments would be waived for coronavirus tests — but would still apply to treatments for the disease.

  • HOUSE (n.) /haʊs/ = a building for living in, usually where only one family lives [casa]
