Trump is a fascist, and his failed party has joined him in an effort to destroy America’s legacy by hiding the truth and repealing the first, fourth, and 14th amendments to the Constitution.
Take the case of Florida, and its Republican Governor, Ron DeSantis. DeSantis is just another Trump lieutenant in his army of anti-Americans who will do and say anything to support his fuhrer.
DeSantis recently met with Trump in the Oval Office and promised to reopen Florida for all businesses large and small. The official reports related to the coronavirus claim that there have been 33,000 confirmed cases and 1,200 deaths. But investigators claim those numbers have been falsified to protect Trump’s efforts to mislead his failures since January. DeSantis opened Florida’s beaches for spring break, and there is no account for the probable number of coronavirus cases after the debacle.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that Florida has simply stopped releasing death statistics. Until nine days ago, Florida’s medical examiners released a list of deaths related to the coronavirus. They are now curtailing the information released by law enforcement. The truth is that information from county medical examiners has been ignored.
Florida state legislators sent a letter to DeSantis expressing their concerns, but the governor denies ever having received a letter.
Fact: Trump and his circle of sinners are responsible for today’s death toll from the pandemic. The United States leads the world in deaths. As of today, April 29, 2020, American deaths from the coronavirus surpassed the total of deaths in the 20-year Vietnam War. A delay of more than two months after Trump received the information about the possibility of a pandemic in the President’s Daily Brief resulted in inaction which cost additional lives.
By Wednesday’s end, more than 58,000 men, women and children lost their lives partially because of Trump’s failure to lead our nation during a major crisis. His mantra has been: “It’s not my fault and not my job.”
Let’s find someone who wants to be our president and accepts the duties and responsibilities of his ‘job.’
