It's no secret that Donald Trump has a hard-on for keeping things political. He has manipulated a global pandemic in order to win the 2020 election. He contracted covid, and continued to spit in the faces of those who have gotten covid, and the loved ones of those who have died from coronavirus. He flip-flopped between leading victims of covid into a false sense of security, and mocking them in appearances and in tweets. If he could call our brave soldiers "losers," he is capable of anything.
With a new wave of covid making its rounds across the country, the CDC has been trying to enact a mask mandate nationwide, on all public transportation. Of course the President and his minions struck it down.
Mike Pence's coronavirus task force refused to even discuss the mandate. The Trump administration believes localities should devise their own rules and regulations regarding masks.
CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said this about the mandate being struck down:
"We are not defenseless against COVID-19. Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus — particularly when used universally within a community setting. All Americans have a responsibility to protect themselves, their families, and their communities."
Trump's people feel the opposite, despite the fact that coronavirus has been sweeping its way through the White House ever since Amy Coney Barrett's nomination. The White House isn't doing contact tracing of the event. They are just pretending like nothing is happening. It's easy to do when they are being brainwashed to follow Trump's reckless lead. Nearly 40 people that work in the White House have tested positive for coronavirus, and that number continues to rise. Some staffers, including Nancy Pelosi, are keeping their distance from the White House.
It is extremely reckless for the administration to block this mandate. This pandemic isn't going away anytime soon, and I heard projections that we could see 400,000 Americans lost to coronavirus. 400,000 men, women, and children.
Can you imagine what would happen if we had that mask mandate in areas of public transportation? Our positivity numbers, our hospitalizations, and our lives lost would go down substantially!
The White House continues to drop the ball, and it is costing lives. The Trump administration has more than 212,000 drops of blood on their hands. Shame on them!
