The Truth Lives Here
I don’t know if anyone else expected this, but I did. Trump is desperate to misdirect the fact that he is responsible for many of the deaths caused by Covid-19. His failure to act and decision to ignore the danger posed by the coming pandemic resulted in the United States becoming the country with the largest number of cases and the nation with the most deaths related to the coronavirus, although we have only four-percent of the world’s population.
His entire administration is incompetent, and they failed as I expected. Trump receives an “F” for his failure to address a major crisis. As I write this 73,000 Americans have lost their lives, and one expert is forecasting 100,000 by the end of May.
What is Trump’s reaction today? “Fuck the people; the economy comes first.” As I once reported, a line in a movie by Brad Pitt says it best: “America is not a country, it’s a business.” While every other developed nation in the world cares for its people, our government cares for its large corporations.
White House aides are reporting that Trump will use the same tactic he has for more than three years. He will attempt to misdirect the facts and claim that he is telling the truth and medical experts are all lying about the disaster which is the Covid-19 virus.
“A senior administration official said he expects the president to begin publicly questioning the death toll as it closes in on his predictions for the final death count and damages him politically,” Axios reports.
The truth is that the number of actual cases is much higher than reported. Because Trump failed to make testing available early in the beginnings of this pandemic, healthcare experts claim that the total could be 10 times higher than the current statistics indicate.
This crisis offers proof that Trump is unfit to claim the title of president. He is the greatest disaster ever to befall the United States of America. This orange buffoon will never be my president. I am ashamed of our nation’s government.
