    He checked out last May. He's responsible for this spreading pandemic. He just sat back, watched, and spread lies. He makes me sick to my stomach.

    Those people are mentally impaired. Even a fool should know Trump's a lying greedy pig.

    The way many Republican governors are, there's no way a national lockdown would be enforceable, or constitutional if challenged by states. It would require almost unanimous cooperation with all states.

    To be fair, I think all healthcare officials were really concerned about the PPE shortage for medical staff. They weren't certain that masks would help the general public, but they knew that masks were needed and in short supply for medical related personnel. The PPE supply situation has changed a lot since the end of February.

    Trump wants this virus to be as out of control as possible to make it as tough as possible on Biden when he takes over.

    literally killing people out of spite. Monster

    She truly is her father's daughter. Imagine thinking another 200,000 or more dead and millions more with long term health effects is getting back to normal.

    The Trump family disgusts me. They truly are selfish, heartless human beings. Poor Ivanka won't be able to sit on Daddy's lap anymore when they get put in prison. Hopefully that happens

    Courtesy of Trump? Why the heck would he try to take credit for this? You have to be kidding me.

    Because he knows more about the Virus than doctors. He actually sent over his CRISPR genetic modification plan to Regeneron and purposely infected himself with Covid to prove the monoclonal antibody's efficacy.

    The reason he hasn't been in public is he is spending all his time donating plasma.

    QAnon has a cipher to decrypt Trump's latest tweets and when he wrote "If you count all the legal votes I won already!" that is actually a clue to explain how mRNA vaccine works.

    The Trump Administration makes it harder for the next Administration to address the economic crisis from COVID-19.

    Mnuchin to put $455B in COVID-19 relief funds beyond successor's reach
    BY NIV ELIS - 11/25/20 01:20 PM EST

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin signaled that he will move $455 billion in COVID-19 relief from the Federal Reserve back into the Treasury’s General Fund, a move that would make it harder for his successor to access the emergency funding.

    Mnuchin said last week that he was shuttering a handful of the Fed's emergency lending facilities, a move the central bank opposed in a rare critical statement. Those facilities, though little used during the pandemic, were seen as confidence boosters for capital markets.

    The amount to be returned by Mnuchin was part of a $500 billion allocation in the $2.2 trillion CARES Act that President Trump signed into law in late March.

    Mnuchin at the time requested the Fed return the funding, which Congress appropriated to cover potential pandemic-related losses, saying the CARES Act set a legal deadline for the facilities to expire by year’s end.

    Putting the cash back into the general fund would make it harder for former Fed chair Janet Yellen, President-elect Joe Biden's reported pick to lead the Treasury Department next year, to deploy the funds, and may require another act of Congress to do so.

    Bharat Ramamurti, a former adviser to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) who now serves as a member of the congressional committee appointed to oversee the funds, called Mnuchin's move “illegal.”

    “This is Treasury’s latest ham-handed effort to undermine the Biden Administration,” he said on Twitter.

    Neither the Treasury Department nor the Biden transition team immediately responded to a request for comment.

    Republicans on the Senate Banking Committee applauded Mnuchin, saying he was faithfully following the intent and letter of the law.

    “Congress’s intent was clear: these facilities were to be temporary, to provide liquidity, and to cease operations no later than the end of 2020,” GOP lawmakers said in a letter spearheaded Committee Chairman Mike Crapo (Idaho) and Sen. Pat Toomey (Pa.).

    “With liquidity restored, we strongly support Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s decision to close these facilities by year-end, as Congress intended and the law requires, and the Federal Reserve’s decision to return unused CARES Act funds to Treasury,” they added.

    The GOP senators said Congress could take action to “revive” the facilities if the need arose. But Congress has struggled to pass extensions for key provisions of the CARES Act that expired July 31, and congressional leaders have remained deadlocked over a new coronavirus relief bill for months.

    trump is a murderer. Read the quote below and tell me he is not. trump is asking Americans to do exactly the opposite of what the CDC and every genuine expert on the science of contagious disease and COVID-19 says everyone should do. What makes this even worse is that trump isn't doing it out of ignorance. He knows exactly what he is doing and that he helping the spread of this terrible virus, causing sickness and death.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's annual Thanksgiving proclamation calls for Americans to "gather" for the holiday, even though federal public health officials have explicitly warned against it.

    The final line of the proclamation, issued by the White House press secretary's office Wednesday evening, reads: "I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings."

    Trump deserves a lot of blame but I doubt he wrote that. That sounds like boilerplate language from the last few Thanksgivings that they recycled and Trump and his Administration is so checked out they can't come up with a completely new statement.
