“Let’s call it Trumpvirus,” urged a New York Times oped.
Just to be clear, the Democrats are using this COVID to fearmonger and blame the President while still calling for open borders (!)
“Let’s call it Trumpvirus” screamed a NY Times oped. The soulless party of evil are in a wild downward spiral to the utter bottom as they furiously work to sink the economy.
Lest we forget, Obama waited until ‘millions’ were infected and 1000 people in U.S. died before declaring H1N1 an emergency. You never heard about that. The media were in cover Obama’s ass mode 24/7/365.
As we suspect, the Chinese government tried to keep the virus outbreak secret – for what reason we don’t know. What we do know, however, is that by January 31, 2020, President Trump had declared a public health emergency and began restricting U.S. access to non-citizens from China. Flights filled with U.S. citizens who were in Wuhan were brought to America and those people were quarantined on U.S. military bases for two weeks.
And these same Democrats called him a racist for doing so.
t’s a unique set of characteristics showing that President Trump understood early the need for decisive measures such as travel restrictions on China, which he imposed in January.
Yet for that sensible decision — in defiance of the World Health Organization — he was criticized by Democrats such as Joe Biden as xenophobic, and by China as racist.
“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fearmongering,” said Biden the day after the travel restrictions were imposed.
CNN ran a story warning that “the US coronavirus travel ban could backfire” and have the effect of “stigmatizing countries and ethnicities.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the highly respected head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, praised the “original decision that was made by the president … [that] prevented travel from China to the United States.
“If we had not done that, we would have had many, many more cases right here that we would have to be dealing with.”
Trump’s travel restrictions began on Jan. 31. Australia and Singapore instituted their own travel limits the next day. Trump’s move bought valuable time to slow the spread of the virus and ease pressure on the nation’s health system before a vaccine is developed — which experts believe is at least 18 months away.
But that hasn’t stopped the barrage of fake criticisms, including that Trump had left the nation dangerously unprepared to cope with a pandemic by cutting funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Not true. The CDC’s programming budget increased from $7.2 billion in 2019 to nearly $7.7 billion this year, the Associated Press fact-checking unit reported. Trump had proposed a cut, but Congress rejected it.
It’s reprehensible for the Democrats to make political hay by blaming Trump for the coronavirus or, as a New York Times op-ed piece called it, “Trumpvirus.”
Blaming Trump for Coronavirus will bite the Democrats in the ass come November.
There are no mixed messages, only political weaponization by people like you and your brother, Fredo! https://t.co/NqH4pHfuwt

‘An Opportunity for Lawmakers to Work Across the Aisle and Get Something Done’
“A divided Congress in a presidential election year may seem an unlikely setting for the first major drug-pricing reform in decades, but over the past year common goals and designs have emerged to set up a rare opportunity,” Joe Grogan, Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, writes in The Wall Street Journal.
“President Trump has made lowering prescription-drug costs a priority and is willing to invest political capital to work with both parties . . . Congress should capitalize on this opportunity and work with the administration to reject special interests, reject partisan posturing, and provide relief to the American people.”
Washington Times: The coronavirus crisis has given Democrats a chance to advance key parts of their liberal agenda, with coronavirus sanctuaries for illegal immigrants and government-covered testing and health care for those who suspect they are infected.
President Trump, meanwhile, has trotted out a reliable Republican proposal: tax cuts to boost a virus-struck economy.
