    He is already campaigning while the country is suffering from the pandemic. MAGA, Transition to greatness are so empty and hollow with such show of incompetence and stupidity

    • We’re screwed either way. The elite politicians are in it for themselves and their sponsors

    • So when they keep showing videos of Joe Biden campaigning from his basement that’s perfectly fine?

      well, its not him or his immediate family DYING so its very OK for him if thousands of innocent American die as long as the economy is going!!

    • @Itachi Uchiha LET’S NEVER LEAVE OUR HOMES. EVEN WE HAVE TO DIE IN OUR HOME. Yeah that’s a good idea 😐

  2. He can force the country to open if he wants to but its going to take years to get the economy back. Let your Trumpsters go out there and work. Let them get Covid-19 you can give them your magic pill. Get some empathy in your heart and do something for the families of the 93,000 plus. They don’t want money they just want a sincere condolence.,or memorial.

    • @Janet Lewis Me too. Diagnosed Jan 2. Then Pandemic hits. How you like 2020 so far eh? Good luck and keep fighting.

      To Janet Lewis: I read your comment, and I was immediately taken with grim insight into the economy and into Trump’s repeated promises of miracle cures, or just plain miracles. When you spoke for the families of the fallen. you spoke truth to power: “they just want a sincere condolence or memorial.” And it is the sincerity, the empathy that Trump so profoundly lacks.
      Then I read the replies, and the time stamps show that some of the people who are most thoughtless are rude knowing that you are battling cancer. In the face of such insensitive ghoulishness, please have faith that there are people who wish you only the best. Godspeed,

      @Doug Lowe Thank you my prayers are with you.

    • @EaDre32 I’m not broke takes a bum to know a bum

    • @EaDre32 want to get rich, act broke.

  3. I think the person that assassinates their president of the United States will be considered a hero and a patriot

  4. hes campaigning on the dead bodies of almost 100k americans.. remember that in november

    Biden is gonna have a big mess to deal with when he gets elected 🤷🏾‍♂️.

  6. Trump thinks nobody needs a vaccine when YOU’VE GOT MAAAGAAA!!!!!

  7. When is this nightmare going to be over?

    • When you realize the divide is just how you will be conquered. All those red and blue politicians agreed to bailout rich corporations while people argue who’s politicians are better. It’s time for a full reset. New parties and new people

    • @Moe Snert Amen to a full reset.

    As usual he’ll try to paint himself as the saviour of the crisis that he Obama created

  9. Smothering the fire with kindling.

    Yet tens of thousands supprt him and this constantly on Facebook. So sickening.

    • Clarissa Gafoor | May 22, 2020 at 1:45 AM | Reply

      He could well win the next election! Which is mind boggling for those of us who aren’t American!

    • Roger Jordan | May 22, 2020 at 12:28 PM | Reply

      Vote red in November and be a winner too!

    • Robert Howard | May 22, 2020 at 4:38 PM | Reply

      @Clarissa Gafoor Thats what I try to tell people. Its crazy. Like this dude above me. Completely blind or just don’t care. Selfish and sick people.

  11. Thump really shows us his priorities. Money for the rich, money for him, re-election and praise.

    First make it; recently keep it and now transition to…. while doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO HELP MOST AMERICANS IN THEIR HOUR OF NEED !!!

    Your government feels to me like this is the *TRAIL OF TEARS* all over again. Modern version of a *smallpox blanket* when we KNOW that black/brown/old are the ones suffering. Your government is, truly, HATEFUL, and the world is watching. Prayers from Australia.

    • It reminds me of John D. Rockefeller and the Triangle Shirtwaist incident every day. People willfully being led to their deaths for the profits of few.

  14. He thinks opening the economy will ensure his re-election. The death toll will prevent his re-election. We won’t survive another 4 years with him shirking responsibility the way he does.

    Also, the economy IS NOT WALL STREET!!! It’s consumers – the same 38.6 MILLION consumers that are currently receiving unemployment. The general population doesn’t have money for much beyond basic survival at this point. He can open all he wants, but without consumers, the actual economy isn’t going anywhere for a while.

    Unemployment will soar even more once you open without precautions.

  16. Pause all of the testing at the White House, and let’s see how that works out for Trump and his entourage.

  17. When trump is out of office his followers and him need to be held accountable for the 100k Americans gone due to his incompetence.. i say Lock them up for life

    He’s neither taking Hydroxychloroquine nor is he being tested for COVID-19. He’s just lying to the American people because that’s who he is.

    Trump’s new campaign slogan: “America’s Dying To Re-Elect Me”

  20. Remember when people said “oh, what’s the worst that can happen, give Trump a chance”. Great Depression era unemployment and over 100k dead is what happened.
