Trump blasted on MSNBC: ‘The so-called plan is to just let a lot of Americans die’ from coronavirus

President Donald Trump was blasted on Tuesday for his administration’s latest approach to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The Trump administration is about to hang the ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner in the fight against coronavirus. Today, President Trump confirmed the White House is winding down the task force charged with combatting the virus, with Vice President Mike Pence citing the tremendous progress we’ve made as a country so far,” MSNBC’s Chris Hayes reported. “Meanwhile, the president is encouraging states to end their lockdowns and shelter-in-place rules, even though — this is a key point — they do not meet his own administration’s guidelines to safely reopen, the ones that his administration put out from his CDC.”

“And he’s telling Americans who might be nervous about contracting the virus and dying, if they go back to work or go out in public or we go back to normal, that they need to think of themselves as warriors on the battlefield,” he said, playing a clip of the president.

The host blasted Trump’s “plan” going forward.

“And now, at this extremely perilous moment, amidst this global catastrophe, the so-called plan is to just let a lot of Americans die, like warriors on the battlefield,” Hayes explained. “And then try to paper-over that.”

“Or rather, as NYU journalism professor James Rosen put it, ‘the plan is to have no plan, to let daily deaths between one and three thousand become a normal thing, and then to create massive confusion about who is responsible,'” Hayes said.

Several supporters of President Donald Trump are very upset that he is not doing enough to crack down on the violence that has swept the country ever since the killing of George Floyd last week.

As reported by the conservative Daily Wire, many conservatives who have otherwise been supportive of Trump are growing exasperated that he spent the weekend hunkered down in the White House and only sending the occasional angry tweet.

"Does Trump have dementia or something?" asked pro-Trump political pundit Mike Cernovitch. "Because sitting on his fat ass right now isn't the right move."

Desperate and ‘out-of-control’ Trump might prompt violent insurrection to stay in office: columnist

Published

on

Writing for the Daily Beast, columnist Michael Tomasky made a strong case that Donald Trump has removed any doubt that he is "morally unfit" to be president and, faced with the possibility he may not be re-elected, could resort to encouraging his followers to take up arms in his defense.

"Naively, I always thought that even Donald Trump would stop short of actually inciting violence. I mean, he’s the president of the United States," Tomasky began before adding, "History means nothing to him, and the future means even less. Presidents—all presidents, even ones I didn’t like—think about the office, the future implications of their actions, the future of our institutions."

Protests around the world: This time it’s different

Published

on

A profound, historical difference separates the protests across America the past six days from past eruptions of anger over police violence against black men and women. It’s a difference that isn’t showing up news reports, televised or print even though it’s quite apparent.

The differences are where these demonstrations are taking place and who is protesting,
