At just before midnight Trump launched a disturbing all-caps Twitter rant that suggests his “plan” to cure the coronavirus crisis will be to send everyone back to work, ending the “stay at home” policy, thus likely killing millions of Americas.
Trump’s Tweet last night is the most frightening evidence ever that he values profits over people and saying clearly that if people have to die so the economy can get better, than so be it. His Tweet…
Yesterday marked day seven of the 15-day “stay at home quarantine ” policy, one-third of the United States is following. Many experts believe this period of quarantine and self-isolation should be extended, and only in doing so can we limit the penetration of the virus throughout the U.S. population.
Trump’s Tweet is not surprising. On March 5, 2020, Trump blatantly lied about what medical experts were telling him repeatedly by minimizing the potential lethality of COVID-19. Trump falsely suggested to the American public that the coronavirus was not dangerous and that people should report to work as usual if they test positive. This was just two weeks ago. President Trump even went so far as to say going back to work will make people get better.
Trump gave the potentially lethal advice…
“So we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that just get better, by, you know, sitting around and even going to work,”
If Trump ends the 15-day “stay at home” policy instead of extending it and not asking state and local governments to help in the effort. He will literally be committing intentional murder.
