On Tuesday, the coronavirus’ U.S. fatality toll topped 227,000 Americans dead and the nation averaging more than 70,000 – 90,000 new cases per day. Ironically also on Tuesday the Trump administration triumphantly declared victory over the COVID-19 pandemic in a new 62-page report from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy listing what it claims are the scientific and technological accomplishments during Donald Trump’s first term which includes “ENDING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.”
Despite the fact that the pandemic is far from over thanks in no small part to the Trump administration’s mishandled response this new falsified report proves that the Trump administration has not only surrendered to the pandemic but is also trying to to steer public attention away from its failure to control the spread.
A recent report from Columbia University estimates that the “abject failures” of government agencies under Trump resulted in between 130,000 and 210,000 avoidable deaths attributable to COVID-19. Meanwhile Trump Trump is pushing insane, conspiracy theories that the media is trying to sow fear ahead of the election and that health officials are exaggerating COVID-19 deaths because “doctors get more money and hospitals get more money.”
