    If you vote or support Trump you are voting for someone who wants to destroy our constitution

      @MrArchangel73521 No, the trump government is killing people, and failing that, evicting them. You know that T. has investments in real estate and construction such as hotels, golf courses and walls… Empty houses, and failed businesses will end up as D. T. ‘s personal properties.

      Its funny tho, that you even think that trump is a obstruction. Trump is a man that is been ADVIZED by experts on every issue. He dont sit in his oval office and try to come up with something. It doesnt work that way. Do you have any big company seen that worked like that. Who are you? a child?

    • @Roberto Philippo _”Trump is a man that is been ADVIZED by experts on every issue.”_
      HELLO!?!?!? Chump is the man child that IGNORES experts on every issue. Just how stupid are you?

  3. It has become increasingly clear, at least to me, that the majority of Republicans in Congress and in the White House are an existential threat to this Republic.

    • @Confederate Nationalist Yes if you want to go back to the roots. The people and problems of todays republicans are far worse however.

    • TheInternet0987 | July 31, 2020 at 8:00 AM | Reply

      @Confederate Nationalist I just had a disagreement with another extremist nut on the left. I can tell by your screen name that you’re a kook on the other side of society’s fringe.

    • @laksh nayyar
      Im your troll, phukkbunny, and youre my new beast system cesspool tart

    • @alex unger HELLO?!? Chump knows full well that if all eligible Americans voted, he’d lose because the MAJORITY ARE NOT REPUBLICAN, you moron.

    • The average Senator in this country is worth 3 million dollars. Some of them have been in congress since before you were born. They have no ability to relate to ordinary Americans, or even ordinary human beings.

  4. well, pool test is especially suitable for third-class countries like India and US; – )

    • @Paul Bourdon I agree. He wants to force people to go vote in person, closes major polling stations so they have to wait for hours. Discard mail in votes for they will be in far too late because the postal service is stretched beyond the limit and thanks to the chaos he will declare the elections invalid and promises to have a “proper” election as soon as possible.
      Yep, you have got a Bananamerica.
      PS. It reminds me of the Congo where the rebel leader overthrew the government and promised elections within a month. I do think his son is now in charge.

    • Sounds like a cost effective measure for any country tbh.

    • TheBase1aransas who are you responding to? This has nothing to do with the poster’s slam.

    • Sci-pro , India has a better health care system than the United States with a far larger population.

    • China & Mars will determine if C/7 in or not so anything the 👁️ says is bs capish 👌🏽

    I trust jack Lipton whom I never even heard of until now, over all GOP republicans combined.

      The new testing method is 500 times more sensitive than the standard coronavirus test, said Jack Lipton chair of the College of Human Medicine’s Department of Translational Neuroscience, whose team validated the process. That is important, he said, because

      it reduces the number of false negative test results that incorrectly diagnose people as free of the disease,

      allowing them to infect others.

      Another positive differentiator is that this test does not use the reagents others do which is slowing down the manufacturing of current tests.

      The standard test returns an estimated 20% to 30% false negative results in patients who have not yet exhibited symptoms due to a low viral load — that is the amount of the virus in a test sample.

      These are his words. You trust a physician that has a carierre based on governmentfunding and independant for his projects.
      Only a fool say something like i trust such a person. You should read your own facts in medical science reports and studies, then to trust someone on his blue eyes. It can get you killed, some day!!

    • @Scott riseborough I know him personally and have worked with him. He is the science equivalent of Tony Stark. A hero.

    • @Nate Levine I do as well. He is a legend

    • @TheBase1aransas and no one cared.

    • Nate- Awesome thanks for your contributions.

  7. It’s good that Americans have the gumption to do things for themselves, when their government won’t. But, I’d like to see that kind of smarts and gumption employed on the bigger problem. Trump is already Tweeting about not having elections. ALREADY. These unconstitutional, illegal Secret Police are being built up by Bill Barr, because they KNOW they’ll need them, when America reacts to the new Dictatorship. You NEED to OUTLAW Secret Police units, TODAY! Seriously, America. Remove the SOURCE of the problem, or millions WILL DIE

    • Tony Hovgaard | July 31, 2020 at 7:45 AM | Reply

      There ain’t going to be no dictatorship in the United States of America. If any of us US military veterans have to say about it. I didn’t defend the United States of America during Vietnam era to haven’t taken over by a wannabe dictator draft Dodger. I am sure I’m not the only veteran that feels that way. So I don’t think the US is ever going to be in that position. There will not be a dictator in United States. One of us will take a 50 caliber to him. I am pretty sure of that Joe Biden will be our next president of the United States and we will spend is orange buffoon prison where he belongs

    • @Tony Hovgaard Good for you.

    • When you have Moscow Mitch running the Senate nothing is going to be outlawed. Register to vote and make sure you vote Trump and this worthless collection of GOP trash out of office.

    America: The UK, EU and parts of Asia and Australasia have specifically been doing waste water testing for MONTHS now! This is NOT NEW! But, it has gone hand in hand with other country’s governmental, social (lockdown, self-quarantining, public hand sanitizer strategies) and environmental responses to COVID-19. Firstly, get your society on the same page about SOCIAL DISTANCING protocols! You keep skipping past the easy steps so you don’t have to do any hard work as a society. WAKE UP AMERICA. RN.

    • Roberto Philippo dickhead

    • Nor is pool testing new. Germany came up with it and has tested hospital and healthcare staff this way.

    • In Australia, they have begun using broader waste water testing in some areas. (I think they are still developing exactly how it will be used.) The idea is to test the waste water of specific areas and compare the results to the actual Covid tests that have been carried out in that area. If an area’s waste water shows significantly higher presence than Covid tests show, there is more intensive testing, for example additional drive in testing centres, in that area so that positive cases can be identified to reduce community spread. It is not used to supplement testing but to locate areas where there is possibly more unidentified cases.

    • Yep, yesterday it picked up a positive signal in an Australian ski resort with no known positive cases. So everyone who was there is now getting tested. Hopefully nip it in the bud before it turns into an outbreak.

    • And, like everyone else, adequate financial relief for people to stay home from work when they are sick, or to maintain jobs and businesses through the crisis. Unless people are spending, the economy won’t recover, no matter how much the GOP makes it their top priority.

    Trump would probably send someone to take the test for him like he did the SATS. Trump would call that testing fake as usual.!

    • Roberto Philippo | July 31, 2020 at 7:08 AM | Reply

      Actually test are fake. They give 40% false reading. Thats because there is no complemantary refference to support it. Only lab test can be more accurate, but has a positive false rate by 15%. read some medical science facts. Or are you using CNN for facts?

    • Geoffrey Cass | August 1, 2020 at 5:29 AM | Reply

      Trump would then boast that he “aced” the test! Person, woman, man, camera, tv = stable genius! easy

  10. This was a particularly gross segment, but I’m cool with it.

  11. Pool testing has been used in Eu like Germany and Italy, also in wuhan, they tested 10million people in less than 15 days using pool testing.

      Andy KL yeah I heard about this a while ago. I don’t understand why countries aren’t sharing information allies or not to defeat this pandemic? It kinda looks like everyone is out for themselves. Every country should be doing this type of testing and sharing information about a vaccine. I have a feeling money, greed and Trump when it comes to America is keeping from broad information sharing. America would usually be the head of all of this, leading the world but Trump’s failing on everything. I can’t help thinking things would be really different if Trump wasn’t in office currently.

    • @ᔕɧყ レųиą some countries simply don’t want to give credit to others and join efforts but pretend to be “strong and independent” and do everything on their own. The US is such a country: arrogant and proud of it.

    • ᔕɧყ レųиą that‘s where the WHO would be helpful…

    • @ᔕɧყ レųиą They do. Germany developed the Corona test and immediately shared it with the WHO. It then came up with the idea of pool testing and shared that concept, too. It’s not their fault that the CDC insisted on developing their own testing method.

  12. *Let’s end this nightmare on November 3rd. Wear a Mask and VOTE HIM OUT.*

  13. He hit the key blockage to this idea – _”and have them be organised at the FEDERAL level”_

  14. “A biomedical national guard organized by the federal government” – Yea. I knew there was a catch to what sounds like a smart initiative.

  15. Get rid of space force and start the Bio Medical Nation Guard

    April 24th – “Disinfectant knocks it out in 1 minute. Can we use that? By injecting it inside the body?”
    April 25th – “There might not be a 2nd wave once we reopen. It might not come back at all”
    May 3rd – “We’re going to lose anywhere from 75,000 to 100,000 people”
    May 5th – “With or without a vaccine, it’s going to pass”
    May 13th – “If we did less testing, we would have less cases. So in a way, by doing all of this testing it makes me look bad”
    May 21st – “When we have a lot of cases, I don’t look at that as a bad thing. I look at it as a good thing because it means our testing is much better. So I view it as a badge of honour. Really, it’s a badge of honour”
    June 15th – “If you don’t test you don’t have any cases. If we stopped testing right now we’d have very few cases, if any”

    July 27th – “The governors should be opening up states”

    Vote this liar out!

  17. At least he has a plan unlike Trump.

  18. IMAGINE: what our lives would have been like if the national mobilization had taken place.
    REALITY: it matters who our leaders are, the character of the President matters, we are living our lives with this virus and this economy because it matters. Because a larger minority of voters choose to believe in Trump we are in this situation.
    REMEMBER THIS NOVEMBER: the adage “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me”!

  19. why are people like him not listened to wake up USA.

  20. That makes sense. The U.S. need to do something otherwise this Trump virus will never get under control.
