    CDC director Robert Redfield says, "We are not defenseless against COVID-19. Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus." Donald Trump, of course, knows better. He almost never wears a mask in public and he continues to mock Joe Biden for wearing one. The COVID-19 death toll in the United States is now 191,812.

    In Donald Trump's world, everything is about Donald Trump. Everything – even the COVID-19 pandemic. He doesn't care about the lives of Americans but he cares that the pandemic could hurt his re-election chances. Therefore, he downplayed it, beginning on January 22 when he told CNBC's Joe Kernen, "It's one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It's going to be just fine." According to Worldometers.info, the COVID-19 death toll in the United States is now 194,679.

    Biden slams Trump for concealing pandemic threat
    CNN, Sep 9 2020 2:31 PM ET

    Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden today accused President Donald Trump of "a life-and-death betrayal of the American people" hours after journalist Bob Woodward revealed ahead of the publication of his new book, Rage, that Trump had concealed the true threat posed by coronavirus.

    While campaigning in Michigan, Biden pointed to Trump telling Woodward in a recorded February interview that the virus was more deadly than the flu, airborne and highly contagious. "He knew it and purposely played it down. Worse, he lied to the American people. He knowingly and willingly lied," Biden said about the threat posed by the virus, which has now left more than 185,000 Americans dead. "It's beyond despicable. It's a dereliction of duty. It's a disgrace," Biden said. "He failed to do his job on purpose. It was a life-and-death betrayal of the American people."

    The COVID-19 death toll in the United States is now 198,775 – and Doctor Donald Trump is doing everything he can to ensure the number keeps increasing.

    Analysis: Trump ignores science at dangerous indoor rally
    CNN, Sep 14 2020 11:01 AM ET

    President Donald Trump offered a glaring new example of his refusal to put medical science before politics with a large indoor rally Sunday night that made a mockery of social distancing, while the pandemic he mismanaged has now claimed more than 194,000 American lives.

    The event in Nevada – his second rally in the state in as many days – did not only risk the health of those present, thousands of whom were packed together inside a manufacturing facility in defiance of the state's ban on local gatherings of 50 people or more. It also has the potential to turn into a super spreader event that could seed COVID-19 outbreaks in the wider community. Trump hadn't held an indoor rally in nearly three months, since his last one in Tulsa, after which the city saw a surge in cases and multiple campaign staffers along with Secret Service agents tested positive for the virus.

    The COVID-19 death toll in the United States is now 201,267 – and Doctor Donald Trump seems to be confused about who is in charge.

    Trump blames Biden, who isn't President, for not instituting national mask mandate
    "To be clear: I am not currently President," Biden wrote moments later. "But we can change that."

    Yes sir, Doctor Donald Trump knows more than all the world's medical experts combined. He says so.

    Trump contradicts and demeans CDC director
    Dr. Robert Redfield testified that masks may be more effective against
    COVID-19 than a vaccine. The President claimed Redfield was confused.

    COVID-19 has now killed 202,002 people in the United States. Worldwide, the death toll is 949,323. Idiots such as this Idaho pastor are not helping.
