Trump spoke to reporters just hours after the US reached its worst-ever daily total of new coronavirus infections of 51,174 on Wednesday (only to be topped the following day with 51,504 new cases…)
“There’s not been anything like this — record setting. It was just put out that the United States economy added almost 5 million jobs in the month of June, shattering all expectations.
Today’s announcement proves that our economy is roaring back.”
In what are becoming daily examples of a dereliction of duty, Trump once again MASSIVELY misrepresented the state of the pandemic.
“The crisis is being handled. … Some areas that were very hard-hit are now doing very well. Some were doing very well, and we thought they may be gone and they flare up, and we’re putting out the fires.”
Joe Biden accused Trump of wanting to move on from the crisis to concentrate on his reelection bid saying,
“Trump wants to declare his health crisis over and unemployment solved. Unfortunately, he’s wrong on both fronts
“… Trump’s bungled leadership [has] totally mismanaged crisis from the start.”
This weekend, to commemorate the 4th of July, as Trump visits Mt. Rushmore and holds a public fireworks display in DC that will draw thousands, the US now sadly has 130,000 Americans dead (and counting) in large part due to Trump’s inability to manage this out-of-control crisis.
