President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday after the golf game to announce that covid-19 cases were on the rise around the United States, not just because of the rise in tests across the country, but because health experts have repeatedly explained that the disease continues to be out of control around the country.
“This persistent kindergarten-level logic is why we lead the world in Kovid cases and deaths,” Republican Mark Pocon (D-Wis.) Tweeted in response to Trump’s latest salvo slander test for the rise in cases.
Trump, who tweeted after being photographed on a golf course at his club in Potomac Falls, Virginia, took a special look at his own expert, the National Institute for Health (NIH) director Dr Anthony Fauci, who told lawmakers on Friday that they should expect an epidemic. Partially blamed for continuing growth in the US and keeping the country’s economy 50% open.
“If you look at what happened in Europe, when they were closed or locked up or went to a shelter on the spot — but you want to describe it — they really did it with 95% of the people in the country,” Fauzi said.
“When you really see what we have done, we have closed, even though it has created a lot of hardship, we have only actively closed 50% of the country’s sense of completeness.”
President Fawzi fired on Saturday for calling a public health expert, who has been director of the NIH since 1984, “wrong.”
“We have more cases because we have tested more than 60,000,000 than any other country,” Trump said. “If we test less, there will be fewer cases.”
“Per capita, we are not even in the top 15 countries for testing,” said journalist Brian Carem. “Lithuania has tested more per capita citizens than us.”
As the New York Times reports, cases continue to rise across the country:
The virus is accelerating at an alarming rate in the Midwest, with states from Mississippi to Florida to California already feeling the worst.
With everyday new infections equaling a terribly high mark, there is a national feeling that while the United States is running a total of second wave cases, the progress made in tackling the epidemic is being reversed and no patch of America is safe. .
The president’s response to the pandemic has been criticized for prioritizing the reopening of the economy at almost any cost and for having an inconsistent approach to testing, masks and treatment, promoting Houston’s views on the role of alien DNA in the manufacture of drugs.
“The bottom line: Trump doesn’t care that your kids will die if you think they can help your kids win in 2020,” tweeted radio host Dean Obidalla.
