    Trump hurt himself by opening his mouth and trying to put up the mission accomplished flag early on

    not to mention.... the

    Neither of which are serious matters that would over shadow the massive good he has done for the country.

    If we are petty, then we will throw out the baby with the bath water every time.

    Below is a picture of the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida that has the seating capacity of 64,767 persons. Today, at least 64,203 Americans have died from a preventable pandemic. The federal government placed orders for over 100,000 new body bags to hold victims of COVID-19 in April 2020.

    But the Trump admin. had plenty of warning the Covid-19 pandemic, but instead of warning the American people Republican and Democratic members of Congress made nearly 1,500 stock transactions worth up to $158 million between February and April as the Corona-virus spread across the U.S..

    New Jersey crematoriums are backed up as much as three weeks. Funerals homes, and EMS report death toll from Corona-virus is much greater than officially reported.

    Yes. Go into more detail.
    What actions?
    When?
    Based on the information available at that time - why?

    You are living under a rock.

    Even if you only had a modicum of curiosity, you would have at least stumbled upon news articles, or links provided by members of this forum, which showed how, during the Bush and Obama administrations, the PPE in the National Stockpile was being depleted and was not being replenished, and how the CDC failed to properly stock ventilators, for over a decade before Trump was even sworn into office.

    You either are incapable of, or consciously refuse to, inform yourself about the issues you discuss here, or you willfully deceive. Either way, you are not worth engaging on this topic, if not all other topics. So don't look to me to engage you in a discussion any more, it's a total waste of time. Scream into the wind, I don't care.

    Funny thing, I have four people on ignore now, and two of them have been banned already. Guess I know how to pick 'em. LOL

    Trump has done nothing for this country, increased the debt biggly, lowered the morality of the country biggly, divided the country biggly

    other than Trump's mega tax cuts for the corps, what has he done?

    Feds Ordered More Than 100K Body Bags Even As Trump Projected Only 60K Would Die from

    Feds Ordered More Than 100K Body Bags Even As Trump Projected Only 60K Would Die from Coronavirus

    Documents obtained by NBC News indicate that the federal government ordered more than 100,00 body bags even as President Donald Trump projected only 60,000 people would die from COVID-19 during the coronavirus pandemic.


    “That batch is a pending $5.1 million purchase order placed by the Department of Homeland Security on April 21 with E.M. Oil Transport Inc. of Montebello, California, which advertises construction vehicles, building materials and electronics on its website,” the outlet pointed out.

    Additionally, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) opened up bidding to provide about 200 rented refrigerated trailers for locations around the country around the same time.

    Coronavirus deaths in the United States now stand at nearly 64,000, according to the most up-to-date statistics.

    Despite these facts, the president has signaled he will not extend social distancing guidelines.

    Well, there is no cure for this virus, and we do not even know if we can develop an effective working vaccine, so yeah, it's gonna kill a lot more people, this no one can prevent. Would you rather we not prepare? Not resupply the national stockpile? Is there anything trump can do that you will not twist into a vehicle of ridicule? TDS much?

    Even if we develop a working vaccine, and are able to inoculate one million people a day, that's a long time for people to wait.

    It must be nice to be a Democrat these days, their governors can actually sign orders that force nursing homes to take infected people with COVID-19, and not be held accountable for all the ensuing deaths. It must be nice for Democrat mayors to keep mass transit open, to provide a breeding ground to quickly spread the virus, and not be held accountable.

    It does appear like is just like the flu, for a lot of people 40 years old and under, just not for the very old and very sick.
