New Study Blames Trump For Tens Of Thousands Of Avoidable Deaths
October 22, 2020
A new Columbia University study reveals the extent of Trump’s failed coronavirus response. If he had taken stronger actions, tens of thousands of lives could have been saved. And yet, Trump continues to lie about the coronavirus and still hasn’t made a plan to contain it, even as the pandemic worsens again.
A new study says that tens of thousands of deaths could have been avoided if it weren’t for Trump’s failed coronavirus response.

Trump continues to downplay and lie about the coronavirus even as every available piece of data shows the pandemic is getting worse, again.
TRUMP: “That pandemic is rounding the corner. They hate it when I say it. You turn onto this MSDNC and fake news CNN, all you hear is, ‘COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID.’ That’s all they put on, because they want to scare the hell out of everyone. The more testing you have, the more cases. They say, ‘Cases are up.’ Yeah, testing is up.”
Axios: “Every available piece of data proves it: The coronavirus pandemic is getting worse again, all across America.”
Over 23 million Americans are receiving some form of unemployment relief and more than 34 million are struggling to pay their basic expenses.
