Trump’s Chaotic Pandemic Response Hurt Our Economy And Puts Lives At Risk
January 8, 2021
Trump’s refusal to do anything to control the pandemic and his chaotic rollout of the coronavirus vaccine have hurt our economy and puts even more American lives at risk.
The economy lost jobs for the first time since April after Trump refused to do anything to control the pandemic and Republicans delayed taking action.
Washington Post: “The U.S. economy shed 140,000 jobs in December — the first month of decline since the earliest months of the pandemic, as the recovery makes a U-turn after months of surging infections and delayed Congressional action.”
The coronavirus continues to surge uncontrolled and just hit the deadliest single day on record with more than 4,000 deaths.
Washington Post: “On Thursday, more than 4,000 people died of covid-19 in the United States, the first time the toll has exceeded that milestone, following a record day Wednesday of 3,915 deaths.”
Trump’s failed pandemic response continues as his chaotic vaccine rollout puts our economy and American lives at further risk.
The Hill: “Chaotic vaccine rollout could cause hundreds of thousands of US COVID-19 deaths”
Politico: “States scrambling to deploy millions of coronavirus vaccines are resorting to drastic measures as they wait for federal aid to help speed mass inoculations.”
Axios: “Local health officials are turning to online services like Eventbrite to improvise distribution schemes for the COVID-19 vaccine in the absence of federal support or a national plan… Millions of lives, along with the country’s economic recovery, depend on a speedy and successful rollout of the vaccine.”
