These are the words of President Donald Trump in respect of the Coronavirus pandemic, an event as cataclysmic as World War Two. The number of Americans dead now stands at over 140,000, new cases are sky-rocketing every day, hospitals are at breaking point and the economy is in tatters.

In the alternate reality that is the inside of Trump’s head, he has again spewed for the ridiculous assertion that the virus will one day just magically fade away. You don’t have to be an immunologist to realize this is utter nonsense – all you need to do is watch the news or open a newspaper.

We are now at a point where the two biggest risks to the American people are a merciless virus, and the President himself. Trump’s abject failure to implement any meaningful and coherent strategy to tackle pandemic has contributed to the wholly unnecessary deaths of Americans. While he should be in a court dock answering questions as to why he has allowed this to happen, he continues to wreak havoc unabated.

This will be a subject that future historians will long ponder over – how the richest, most powerful country on Earth could so badly fail its citizens. That’s actually an easy question to answer. Because of Donald Trump. Trump was banking on the economy (which he inherited from President Obama) scraping him a victory come November this year. Now however, the economy is tanking like nothing seen since the Great Depression.

Trump, being true to his self-centered miserable self, doesn’t see that for the disaster that it is, the financial destruction that has hammered away at families across the country. Absolutely not. Instead, Trump sees his re-election chances evaporating fast, hence the continual down-paying of the severity of the outbreak. He wants the economy to improve and is prepared to do so at the expense of American lives.

Trump and his inner-circle of lackeys are tested for the virus every single day. Anywhere he visits is sanitized and repeatedly checked for any trace of the virus. Trump wants the American worker and the American child to return to their employment and their school as quickly as possible, irrespective of the very clear and obvious risks that are out there and are actually growing by the day. Trump has down-played wide-spread testing, bizarrely claiming that less tests mean less cases. This rea
