As America crossed the grim milestone of 2,000 coronavirus deaths, President Donald Trump was harshly criticized on Twitter for his handling of the health and economic crises.
Frustration with the president was prominent on Twitter, with the hashtag #TrumpGenocide trending nationwide.
Here’s some of what people were saying:
Today 112,468 people in the US have #COVID19
Within a few weeks it could be 10 times more. The worldwide mortality rate is around 4.8%, so 53,984 people will die.

“The result was a lost month, when the world’s richest country—armed with some of the most highly trained scientists and infectious disease specialists—squandered its best chance of containing the virus’s spread.”#TrumpVirus #TrumpGenocide #TrumpPandemic https://t.co/6OV9gJE6uw

Donald Trump obviously thinks the best way to keep people from voting against him is to kill them.#TrumpGenocide

To every Trump supporting asshat that doesn’t like my comparisons of Trump to Hitler because you think he’d never do anything to kill our citizens, you can officially GO FUCK YOURSELF #TrumpGenocide https://t.co/dZE5dPfLI0 via @usatoday

He knew about it in early January.
He chose to do absolutely nothing.
He downplayed it and hid info.
He created a propaganda task force.
He tasked Mike Pence to lead it.
He called it a Democratic hoax.
He went golfing to steal more money.
He’s attacking Governors.#TrumpGenocide

Imagine listening to this after you have lost a loved one due to under-diagnosis or lack of equipment. Or if you caught COVID-19 due to lack of protective gear.#TrumpGenocide #QuidProCOVID19 https://t.co/QSdFD5nYeM

Why is #TrumpGenocide trending?
Because it's not a joke. That's why. He's really doing it. pic.twitter.com/sia8D0UoDo

He doesn't belong here.
We should never have been here in the first place.
It should have never come to this moment, when his lies and ineptitude and fraudulence leveled us.
It should never have taken a disaster to remove a disaster.https://t.co/CfVWnJMc4j#TrumpGenocide

He called it a hoax
Said we’d be down to zero cases
Prevented testing to keep count low
Denied Fed aid to blue states
Ignored doctors & scientists
Sent sick people back to work
Gave millions false hope of cure
Failed to activate Defense Act
Took no responsibility#TrumpGenocide

For awhile it seemed like Donald Trump didn't care if we lived or died. Now we know that he's actively trying to get Americans killed if they live in a city or state that doesn't think much of him. He's committing genocide against us. #TrumpGenocide https://t.co/SBOj9LPFOw
