COVID-19: Trump Knew.

200,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. So far. President Trump knew it would happen beforehand, lied about it, did nothing. He continues to lie about it and do nothing. At this rate, by the end of the year nearly 380,000 Americans will be dead from COVID-19.

In the global race for most Coronavirus deaths, the United States in on top, with more fatalities than any other country. Americans are not only sick and tired of winning, they’re dead from it.

Jared Kushner: Trump Coronavirus Policy a ‘Great Success’

Jared Kushner: Trump Coronavirus Policy a 'Great Success'

Secretary of Slim Suits, Trump son-in-law, and Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner, fresh from bringing peace to the Middle East, is now running a shadow task force on COVID-19. Yesterday, the day when U.S. coronavirus deaths exceeded the number of Americans killed during the entire Vietnam Conflict, he called the Trump Administration’s coronavirus response “a great success story” on MAGA-friendly Fox & Friends.

“I think that we’ve achieved all the different milestones that are needed. So the government, federal government, rose to the challenge and this is a great success story. I think that’s really what needs to be told.”

Mr. Kushner, whose shadow task force is composed of fellow coronavirus profiteers, was the genius who told President Trump that COVID-19 was nothing to worry about, resulting in federal government inaction during January and February, when intervention would have saved thousands of lives.

“Kushner calls the coronavirus response in US ‘a great success story,'” Savannah Behrmann, USA Today

“Trump and Kushner Engage in Revisionist History in Boasting of Success Over Virus,” Peter Baker, New York Times

“Insiders describe Kushner as ‘de facto president’ who played key role in delaying coronavirus closures: report,” Morgan Gstalter, The Hill

DC Gets Few Needed Medical Supplies from Federal Stockpile

The District of Columbia recieved few of the medical supplies requested from the federal government’s Strategic National Stockpile:

“The District got none of the hospital ventilators, safety goggles and hand sanitizer it asked for and received less than one percent of a requested 663,760 gloves and 1,132,478 respirator masks that officials requested.”

“D.C. City Administrator Rashad M. Young told D.C. Council members and the mayor’s office during a telephone call that he did a ‘readout’ Tuesday ‘of what we asked for and what we got, and it was pretty much nothing from them.’”

— “Federal government gave D.C. a fraction of what it sought to fight coronavirus,” Antonio Olivo, Jenna Portnoy and Fenit Nirappil, Washington Post
