This statement is the absolute truth: “Donald Trump is to blame for America’s failures related to Covid-19. His failure to act in a timely manner cost more than 50,000 American Lives. Without leadership, the United States greatly surpasses the world in the number of coronavirus cases and deaths, although we have only four percent of the world’s population.”
What does Trump say? “It’s China.” Maybe I should write “Jina.”
I did not know that Xi Jinping was in control of America’s government and made all the decisions. If that’s true, he is to blame. No decisions were made when our government first learned of a possible pandemic, and therein lies the problem, and the beginnings of the current disaster.
Trump believes himself and denies scientific fact and the wisdom of healthcare experts. It’s no surprise he’s also blaming the World Health Organization because they told the truth as Trump was denying and ignoring the facts. Today Trump made America and the world a more dangerous place, again.
“We will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs,” Trump announced.
Let’s be completely honest: the WHO, and our own CDC, Center for Disease Control, are the two most important agencies in the world. Trump cannot dismiss either one of them. Just look how miserably he has failed our people with his ignorance about a worldwide pandemic. If America’s governors had not acted quickly, the death rate could be three times as high. The truth is, Trump has done nothing but lie. He has no idea what he is doing, and he doesn’t care. Not a single word of compassion for more than 100,000 Americans or their families has been heard from Donald John Trump.
I have experienced the presidencies of 12 men. My standards may be too high, but I do not believe that most of them should have been elected. Overall, their failures are greater than their successes. However, none of these men failed as badly or caused as much harm to America as Donald John Trump.
No President has been perfect; mostly because with the exception of President Obama, they were all older, white men.
Eisenhower was a racist. John Kennedy was a philanderer. Lyndon Johnson failed to read the mood of the people about the war in Vietnam. Richard Nixon was a “crook,” and would have been impeached if he had not resigned. Gerald Ford lacked courage: the courage to ‘do the right thing’ and the drive to lead our nation. Jimmy Carter is a great man, but not a leader of men. Ronald Reagan fooled everyone. In the beginning of his first term I believed he would serve the working class, but it was soon apparent that he was waging a war against America’s working men and women. George H.W. Bush had admiral qualities, but lacked the talent to lead. In addition, his involvement in the Iran-Contra Conspiracy was a Constitutional Violation. Bill Clinton was, and probably still is a sexual predator. After Jeffrey Epstein was murdered, I have no doubt that Clinton attended his underage parties along with Donald Trump. George W. Bush did not “run our country;” he lacked the knowledge or ability. Our country remains diminished because Dick Cheney ignored the principles and morals of our forefathers. President Obama made one huge mistake. He served eight years without controversy. However, when he learned about Russia’s interference one month before the 2016 election, he removed the right of the American people to know the truth and succumbed to the demands of Moscow Mitch to hide the facts. This brings us to the illegitimate election of the most unqualified and immoral man in history in November of 2016. Trump’s gift from the Electoral College began the destruction of democracy and freedom in America. It is important that all Americans remember two facts.
First, the people did not choose Trump. Hillary won the popular vote by three million ballots.
Second, Trump is only the third American president to be impeached. He would not be in office today if Moscow Mitch and his cowardly minions had done their job and upheld the Constitution: Mitt Romney was the only true Republican at Trump’s trial.
