‘So much unnecessary death.’

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

Trump condemns his own coronavirus response

Trump’s own words from earlier this week say it all:

“There has been so much unnecessary death in this country. It could have been stopped and stopped short, but somebody a long time ago it seems decided not to do it that way, and the whole world is suffering because of it.”

He is the “somebody” who could have stopped it. More than 60,000 Americans are dead, many because of Trump’s failed coronavirus response. We have more than 1,000,000 confirmed cases in the U.S.

The White House’s recommended social distancing guidelines expire today, and—instead of directing people to stay home and keep themselves and others safe—Trump is pushing governors to end social distancing protocols as death and case counts rise.
