Reacting to a report from the Washington Post that Donald Trump was made aware of the coming coronavirus pandemic that is killing Americans and crippling the country back in January and chose to brush the information aside, a former cabinet member under President Barack Obama unleashed a furious tweet accusing the president enablers of having “blood on their hands.”

Sharing screenshots of headlines stating the president ignored the warnings and doesn’t bother to read intelligence reports given to him so he understands what the country is facing, former Education Secretary Arne Duncan was blunt in his assessment of Republican lawmakers and cabinet officials who have stood by.

As he wrote on Twitter: “When the President of the United States refuses to read his intelligence reports, unfortunately lots and lots of people die. That is reality. This is not a reality tv show. And, to all those who have enabled him and placated him, you have blood on your hands.”

Rubin points to Trump's claim that he went to the bunker for an "inspection." But according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, he had no idea where Trump and the rest of his entourage were going.

Trump’s attempt to look tough backfires — and even Republicans seem to see the writing on the wall

Published

on

From the moment that protests against racist police violence started to spread from Minneapolis to the rest of the country (and the world), after a white police officer named Derek Chauvin killed an unarmed black man named George Floyd in a gruesome incident captured on video, it's been clear that Donald Trump thought this was exactly the Hail Mary he needed to win re-election. Trump has been desperate for a way to distract the country from the soaring death rate of the coronavirus pandemic (now at 108,000 and counting) and the 40 million left unemployed in the resulting economic collapse. He believed that a racist and sadistic backlash against the protesters was just the ticket.
