Action: “Trump’s Massacre” - It Didn’t Have To Be This Way




Compare Biden’s pandemic plan to Trump’s. 

Trump’s pandemic plan… well, he doesn’t have a plan. What he has had is a disconnected series of emotional twitches that regularly produce chaos (let states fight over supplies) or danger (try bleach).

Finally, scientists are speaking out. America’s most prestigious medical journal, New England Journal of Medicine, called Trump’s approach “dangerously incompetent.” America’s preeminent public health authority, William Foege, called Trump’s response a “colossal failure.” British Medical Journal warned that Trump’s reelection is an “impending crisis.”

Trump has lied about Covid, dismissed masks, and manufactured “good” news. The news isn’t good. New cases are rising across America, soaring to 45,000 a day, an increase of 8% from two weeks ago. 

“Trump’s Massacre” has left 214,000 Americans dead from Covid-19. Experts attribute tens of thousands of those deaths, “at the very least,” to Trump’s incompetence. The economy is running on fumes. Millions are unemployed. Many people are desperate for food and rent. 

Biden’s evidence-based Covid strategy has three components:

  • Follow experts’ guidance,

  • Ensure decisions are informed by public health officials, 

  • Restore trust, transparency, common purpose, and accountability to our government.
