Massive Failures of Trump Administration Cost American Lives

The Black Death: the Plague that Sowed Terror and Death in Medieval Europe.

by Bill Formby

The Trump administration and the Senate knew and were warned about COVID19 in early January and contracts for approval of necessary medical equipment were not approved until March 13th. How can the government be trusted to give truthful information about the virus?

The president fired the entire emergency medical team that had been set up by the prior administration and did not replace them. Their sole job would have been to have us prepared for a medical emergency such as this. Since then, it has been nothing but speculation and guesswork on the part of the administration with few facts.

Trump in late February:

“Don’t worry about it. It will be gone by Spring”.

Trump In March:

“This Malaria drug (Hydroxychloroquine) is showing great promise as a cure for the virus”.

The CDC and other medical professionals said that there was no evidence that these drugs would impact the virus. Even the acting head of HHS has said that there has been no positive evidence that these drugs work.  Trump is not a medical professional, nor do I expect him to be. I do, however, expect him to be truthful and stop worrying more about his election than the American people.

He has screwed up and stripped the country of some of its resources, but a good leader knows when to try to correct his mistakes. I do not blame him for the pandemic, but I do blame him for not being proactive when he was warned about it and his failure to pay attention to the coming storm cost thousands of lives and sickened hundreds of thousands of people.

He has yet to condemn the Senators who took advantage of secret COVID19 information and dumped stock to save themselves big money. Now, everyone can jump on me if they want to but just remember that everything I wrote here is verifiable. Let’s see if you can do the same.

    And the failures continue, one right after another, every day, and he brags about them.

    There’s new evidence that he had reports on his desk months earlier than that warning about the possibility of an outbreak of a virus, but of course he doesn’t read reports or listen to briefings and looks to Putin and Fox for 100% of his advice. He did not one thing to prepare even after the virus had arrived from Europe and taken hold.
