    Try telling this to a person who would rather endanger children before accepting that he was wrong or that he made a mistake.

    • The man who told millions of Americans, ‘you ain’t black,’ and used the term ‘Blafrican American,’ said that OUR President is RACIST.

      As if it wasn’t already obvious, Joe Biden has absolutely lost his mind. President Trump is a champion for Black Voices. He always has been and he always will be.

      404,000 jobs for Black Americans were added in June

      The unemployment rate DROPPED 1.4% in June for Black Americans

      President Trump is working to reform our criminal justice system

      The historic FIRST STEP Act was signed into law

      President Trump made funding permanent for Historically Black Colleges and universities under President Trump

      He has done more than any modern president for the Black Community, and he’s only getting started. Unfortunately, Joe Biden wants to undo all of President Trump’s great progress and he’s LYING to you to try and do it.

      UncleTom.Com – The black community needs to learn the truth about the democrat party

      Trump 2020 Landslide Victory

    • If there’s any chance lock down and everyone should wear a mask could save one person life from coronavirus is worth 30 trillion dollars in debt and to take away American freedom so be it. How about racial equality is it worth protesting and spreading the coronavirus to everyone worth it? Any person that has a brain knows that money save lives. Money builds hospitals America has the best hospitals in the world. Money gives opportunity to have an education to become doctors. I said this 2 months ago if we shutdown for a year America would become a third world country. Just look what happen to democrat cities many so callled peaceful protesters are looting why because they don’t have money.

    • @Chris Nevares Without leadership? USA is already a 2nd world country. Let’s see proper leadership and a move towards recovery by exemplars. Children are your future…keep them safe FIRST.

    • Chris Nevares “Cognitive test” is misleading, because idiots will interpret it as an intelligence test. It was a test for dementia.

    • @SPZ Aruba or the rightist morons protesting shutdown

    That’s what we get from having a MORON for a leader.

    This calls for leadership all Republicans must go.

      @Steve Fitts hey Trump, you’re mentally unfit. “Nuh uuuhh !! BIDEN IS !!”

    • @Steve Fitts
      NEWS FLASH !
      ANTIFA is not a group it is not an organization it has no hierarchy no leadership not even a phone tree.

    • Cause when I look around at California, Detroit, Chicago, St.Louis, Baltimore, Washington DC, I see how well the democrats have helped out the minority and working classes.

    • @Steve Fitts so True.

    • @Iron Frog Press Thats what Hillary wants you to think as she gets millions from Russia and sells them 20% of our Uranium. FOLLOW THE MONEY !

  4. As long a America has Republicans in existence, America will never get this or any other pandemic right.

    • Jeff Gibson It doesn’t seem like you’ve been paying attention, Jeff. Republicans are authoritarian, which makes your entire response obsolete.

    • TheEriczeppe | July 26, 2020 at 11:10 AM | Reply

      @laxpaint Thats republicans under Trump. I remember the old republicans belived in small govnerment. Still dont understand why libertarians support Trump if they want a small govnerment as possible. Btw, republicans are turning against Trump. Even George W Bush are against that man

    • @laxpaint If republicans are authoritarian, why are they always dispersing power back to the states where it belongs? It is democrats who are the authoritarians always trying to overthrow the Bill of rights and the Constitution. Democrats are communalists, collectivists, communists, fascist authoritarians.

    • Cause your TDS wont allow your NPC brain to compute the fact OBAMA/BIDEN left us with no PPE after the Swine Flu outbreak. But its Trumps fault they spent the money on building solar farms.

    • @Proper Thats not what happened. You obviously failed history. The democrat party is the same party it has always been. Black folk switch parties in the mid 30s to get the free goods under the NEW DEAL.

  5. People: lets give it another go!
    Trump: LEts DOUBLE DOWN! VIRUS is here but not deadly! Gone in a week!

  6. Send the hospital bills to.”Mr make America great”

      has his head deep in a sand trap!

    • You do understand this surge directly coincides with the June marches MSNBC pushed people into. Blame where blame is due. “Protests are more important than COVID” was a moronic idea.

      @SPZ Aruba 1st Question: Do you have an Education?
      2nd Question: How often did you blow dry your hair with a Stapler?

    The problem is that most Americans aren’t willing to make the sacrifice these days.

    • Especially when you have a President that is encouraging people to do the wrong thing.

    • Michele Kett | July 26, 2020 at 9:00 PM | Reply

      There are same people here in Australia being urged by Sky News, but when Victoria experienced another wave because of misunderstanding of the infection. We are in stage 3 shutdown again fir the last 3 weeks. You can’t stop stupid unfortunately.

      The human race has lost all intelligence and commonsensical concept of scientific facts and reality. The case numbers have gone way up because they are doing upward of 100 thousand tests per day. (something that has never in history been done before) Is their anyone in the world that stupid that cannot make the correlational! Of course the Infectious rate has sky rocketed… and big surprise the death rate has completely plummeted , absolutely inevitably and predictably. It utterly boggles the mind that people do not understand basic and fundamental immunological science and reason!

    • It seems like the virus is all a game to them.

    • @dean mushtuk the death numbers haven’t had time to reflect our current rise in cases.

    Trump’s not a leader, he’s way in over his head.

    • @Dawn Sylvester I’m sure you mean this sarcastically ????

    • chris silver | July 25, 2020 at 11:00 AM | Reply

      @William H Music 2020 what has that got to do with what I wrote. I am interested as to why you think anyone’s sexuality has got to do with the pandemic. What a strange thing to ask are you a homophobe 🙄

      @Sam McCormack You seem to be we quite well educated for a 3 year old or you are vying to be the next Whitehouse press secretary.

    Experts: Shut it Down Now. Try again later
    Trump: OK. Only if kids attend school


  13. *Trump is to blame for all this ‘Mask Vs No Mask’ mess during a public health pandemic.*

  14. Schools are a meat packing company that can’t afford any extra space.

    • School bathrooms are also really nasty.

    • @Mechyuda Schools in general are just really gross. Funding will sometimes only be able to afford 3-4 custodians for a middle school. I used to work as a school custodian, while I was in college. I had to clean 26 classrooms, 4 (6 stall) bathrooms, 3 stair cases and 3 hallways, and buff the floors of those hallways, all within an 8hr shift. In any other environment that would be a 2 person job, but since it was just me. Corners were cut or else there was no way it would get done in time.

  15. The US is a young country and our leader has a 10 year old mentality.

  16. This sums up America’s covid failure: G.O.P. – Greed Over People.

    • Democrats AKA Cuomo is responsible personally for a huge chunk of those deaths with his policies in NY, so you can’t blame it all on Trump .

    The poor LEADERSHIP AMERICANS have in thier country, every other country has flatten the curve. IN CANADA WERE KEEPING THAT BORDER CLOSED……..

  18. America’s arrogance and boasts of superiority will be her downfall.

  19. “You wanted a reality show host for a President? Now you’re on Survivor.”

    Trump is missing the Prime Factor of a leader: The ability to LISTEN.

    • Ginger Nightmare | July 26, 2020 at 8:00 PM | Reply

      He also has no soul.

    • “I have the best ears. I can listen like you wouldn’t believe! The doctors, they said they had never seen anything like it. One of them whispered “Person, woman, man, camera, TV” and I could repeat it perfectly. I got extra points for getting it in the right order. Nobody gets it in the right order. My hearing is very powerful. Everyone says so.”
