  1. Well Ironically Trump Has followed Fauci’s advice, He’s washed his hands of the whole thing.

  3. Of course there is no plan, he’s “following his gut” which is expanding as much as infections

    We get more sick when the kids are in school anyway. They bring everything home. School is a petri dish. This is a great plan to get up to 150k cases a day by October.

      So let’s think about this, let’s say he wins a second term, all of are not going to change how we feel about and his own base will shrink, to top it all off he has to fight and constantly defend himself even he would get tired of doing that. Are we saying this is for him, anyway a pleasurable experience? With everyone attacking him! He loves that right? Or maybe he will be delusional and pretend everything is hunky dory like he always does? He loves that right? That called fun for trump I guess so let’s give him more fun when he leaves office if he lasts that long we’re not gonna praise him and he knows it

    • I work for a public school system and as it stands now, it’s frightening to imagine all of us returning next month — all those kiddos at risk because of one seriously unbalanced man.

      I’m from New York I was a part of that culture back in the 1980s I was just a teenager back then but I’ve known about Donald Trump since about 1978 this is a man who cares for absolutely nothing and no one and I think all of the people whoHave died because of his inability to understand is proof honestly I want him to continue to not wear a mask that’s all I can say

    Trumps big on school. He paid the best people to take his SAT’s for him.

      @El Malo again she personally knows Donald Trump and you don’t know him at all. Her book dates back to encounters with her uncle when she was 9-10 years old until now.
      Put it to you this way, ill take her word wayyyyyyyy before i take yours.

      @El Malo When are YOU gonna learn to spell?

    • @screeningmimi listen bright one, everytime I use different variations of the word “mule” it gets deleted. You should feel privileged to have a conversation with an intellectual person.

      @El Malo I feel so fortunate, I’m gonna mark it on the calendar. I I quote: “I have to give you a meniscal amount of credit. ” I assume you meant ‘minimal’ but your way is nice too.

    Well my children will be at home learning until all this crazy is over with. My children, my decision.

      Good for you. F Trump.

    • Yep…My kids aren’t going back either …Home school is the new norm and to keep the spread of the CHUMP VIRUS at bay for our elderly ! We all have to stick together because our government is incompetent as of right now. Stay safe everyone !

    Suddenly this administration cares about education and children’s academic growth.

    Here comes the surge in deaths, America. Canadians watching in horror.

      @R C Thank you, I appreciate the sympathy. I can still remember the day I learned about our Electoral College, and I asked my teacher in horror: “You mean someone can be elected President and NOT get ore votes than the other guy?” and the teacher said “Yes, but that wouldn’t really happen.” Sadly, it has happened twice now. You did err slightly when you said “Atrocious leadership”…. I have seen nothing approaching the concept of leadership on the federal level.

      Got that right. Unless borders sealed some of this will spread to Canada.

    • Sandra Marshall | July 9, 2020 at 6:28 PM | Reply

      Donald J. Trump, Michael Pence AND a GOP controlled Senate!

    • MIRYAM JUAREZ My best guess about how USA got to this place is when you started using education as a go to budget cut and lowered your standards.

  9. Drew The Life of Wandering | July 9, 2020 at 7:19 AM | Reply

    Looks like there’s been a few generations…. “Getting behind in their education “ 😂 Hence the current problems

    • Republicans for years has torn down education. You know if they send their children to college they will turn into raging liberals. 🤣😂😅😆😁🤣

    • Incredible that DeVoss tried to cut the free meals at schools programs when she was first appointed and now claims these same children need to go to school so they can eat.

  10. He would have sent his mother into a WAR ZONE for a dollar, so what’s he care about us?

    • Youlonde Mansour | July 9, 2020 at 3:32 PM | Reply

      really! how do you know that or just talking out of the side of your neck

    • He took medical insurance away from his sick nephew so he could die. That’s how he treats family, guess how he wants to treat you?

    • @Youlonde Mansour Trump lies out of every orifice he’s got and with his two accordian playing hands as he squeeze boxes them out. So what’s your point?

  11. Valdene Allison | July 9, 2020 at 7:46 AM | Reply

    He’s not satisfied killing adults now he’s going after the children!!! Heartless and soulless

  12. Malik Phillips | July 9, 2020 at 8:04 AM | Reply

    It is insane that there are Americans who see no problem with this man being president.

  13. Brotha in Beijing | July 9, 2020 at 8:06 AM | Reply

    Since Trump accepts no responsibility for anything, why would anyone expect him to have a plan?

    • @Strong Pker …more like ….little pker …like Mr . little hands !

    • Did you see the movie, Burn After Reading. Trump is single minded like the lovely Linda Litzke. She succeeded and so may he. Lightening does strike twice.

    • 🤦‍♀️🙄💥Well, after leading over 200,000 adults lost within his stabe genius plans that appears to now leads our childrens into his Trumped Universe of Darkness after school programs ❗

      Youlonde Mansour For things that are going on in the country he should be paying more attention to what is going on around him and take more action he isn’t doing anything but sitting on his butt in the same office making tweets.

    So you just admitted to knowing a lot of children depend on school meals yet you cut food stamps. GOP logic

    • Markus Rother | July 9, 2020 at 2:50 PM | Reply

      That was what I thought as well. Now theese hypocrites are acting like they would care about poor and working class kids – right after basicly sayin “Meh, pack them in classrooms! Covid hits black and poor people the most – so who cares if they die?”

    • LadyLithias | July 9, 2020 at 3:55 PM | Reply

      @Markus Rother What’s crazy to me is that NONE of the talking heads who talk about it ever flinch at the concept that there are 22,000,000 children in the USA who rely on school lunches for their nutrition. Why is this not something that rings alarm bells all over the country. I had a principal in Arizona who was in a towering rage when he learned that our high school campus had been chosen as the location of lunch distribution during the summer months. He was furious that kids would be getting food. Seriously messed up world when I can write the previous sentence. the USA has deep deep problems.

    • Songbyrd Chiantelle | July 9, 2020 at 8:17 PM | Reply

      LadyLithias honesty it’s heartbreaking. Being a single parent I can attest to how hard those summer months can be. Luckily for me I’m not in that situation anymore. I can only imagine how bad it is now.

    • What they did was send “P-EBT” cards to parents of children who had been receiving reduced or free meals for the 2019-2020 school year… But here’s the catch: the P-EBT cards issued only had ONE month’s worth of benefits. I’d love to hear them explain the logic of that.

  15. Parents, send your children to school when trump shows Barron sitting in his classroom.

    CDC new set of guidelines = “what I tell them to be”. Signed: Humpty Trumpty.

      @Noe Berengena Truly. He IS that delusional, and should have been removed for it. Thanks Republicans!

  17. “Too tough”…. we are talking about protecting children. We need to be very tough when it comes to the safety and health of our children.

  18. “we cant let our kids fall back academically” judging by whats happening in this country that train has departed long ago…

  19. “We can’t let our children fall behind academically.”

    Judging by the last election results and the immature response to a pandemic by a large portion of Americans, I’d say that ship has sailed.
