Help Americans First
Yesterday Trump stated people are screened for Coronavirus on entering the country, that is a lie, they are not, in most cases they are not even asked if they have any symptoms or were exposed to anyone who did. Testing remains woefully inadequate, in fact we have no idea what the current rate of infection is. While schools and businesses shut down, business grinds to a halt, the best we can hope for without this vital information is that we are delaying the point at which our healthcare system will be overwhelmed. This administration has ordered CDC posters at immigration courts that contain vital information to prevent the spread of the disease be removed. This endangers everyone. They have ordered that Medicaid funds may NOT be used to help respond to the crisis. This allows for further spread of the disease as people who cannot afford testing, if they could even get it, or treatment to continue to spread the disease in their communities. A virus is indiscriminate, it doesn't care who you are, if you are rich or poor, what color your skin is or which political party you belong to. The fact that many World leaders are now testing positive, celebrities, basketball players are reported to infected should be a 5-alarm fire. It indicates that this virus has been spreading unchecked for a long time, and is more contagious that we have been led to believe. This is no longer about Trump's incompetency, immorality and ignorance, now about yours. As you allow him to dump $1.5 Trillion into the financial markets to "protect" them, but shuddered at the thought of protecting Americans, you are now part of the failed response to this crisis. It is likely that over 1 million Americans will die from a widespread outbreak that could have been prevented. While Trump is still touting "closing the borders", the virus has been spreading in the United States unchecked for two months.
