Medical warnings that this weekend’s rallies could cause even more devastating infections than the Day of Remembrance events mean that this is almost a time for a national holiday.
While everyone can be encouraged that the unemployment rate fell to a staggering 11.1% in June, news of growing affairs and besieged cities rejected by Trump could make Thursday’s data a wrong dawn. Bar, restaurants and shops are closing again across the country – including California, which is facing a protracted disaster – in a way that could once again increase job losses and stifle the recovery that Trump is willing to inflate. from any relationship with reality strengthens his hopes of re-election.
Trump appeared before reporters just hours after the U.S. achieved its worst daily total of 51,174 new infections on Wednesday. This record would last only 24 hours as the US broke its record with 51,504 new cases reported late Thursday.
But the President had other files in mind.
“There was no such thing – a record setting. It was just reported that the United States economy added nearly 5 million jobs in June, breaking all expectations,” he said. “Today’s announcement proves that our economy is sinking.”
In the daily examples of abandonment of duty, the President has been greatly misled by the state of the pandemic.
“The crisis is raging.” Some did very well, and we thought they might have left and erupted, and we’re putting out the fires, “he said.
Disappointing with the pandemic that erupted on Thursday, they lied to Trump’s assessment that the crisis was “being addressed.”
Republican Florida Gov. Ron Desanti, one of Trump’s most aggressive partners in trying to open up financially fast who defied US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, insists he won’t shut down the economy, even though his state has set a new record 10,000 new cases on Thursday. Texas has come up with almost 8,000 new cases, just a few of the worst on Wednesday. Arizona reported more than 3,000 new infections on Thursday after the worst day on Wednesday, when it reported more than 4,800.
In a landmark move that shattered the president’s resistance to the orders, Texas Greg Abbott, a Republican, said he would now demand that all Texas wear a mask when they go out in public if they came from counties where there were more than 20 cases of corona. has been recorded. It showed Texas charts showing high rates of infection, positive rates for tests and treatment.
“These numbers reveal a very strong reality. The Covid-19 is not going to go away. In fact, it is getting worse,” Abbott said.
Another member of Trump’s group that opened Republican rule prematurely, Georgia’s Brian Kemp, said people should “do the right thing” and wear masks.
While Trump refuses to set an example by wearing one before the cameras, many experts expect things to get worse.
“It has created a perfect storm: the combination of travel, the combination of restart – perhaps in some cases, too early – and the combination of people who don’t necessarily follow some of these precautionary guidelines,” said Dr. Joshua Barocas, an infectious disease doctor at Boston Medical Center told the American Society of Infectious Diseases.
Dr. Peter Hotez, an infectious disease specialist at Baylor’s School of Tropical Medicine, warned that Texas, Arizona and Florida are approaching the ground for “revealing” new infections.
“Wrong on both fronts”
Even for a President who is accustomed to framing reality to suit his political priorities, Trump’s comments on the economy on Thursday were astonishing and, under the circumstances, bad. But there were also trembling signs of anxiety in Trump’s bravery. At one point, he warned that if ousted Democratic nominee Joe Biden won the presidency, there would be an economic crisis of 1929. Trump apparently did not notice the irony that his denial that the pandemic would be a problem for the United States contributed to the deficit. , helping to provoke the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
Trump did not hesitate to answer questions about the virus, but let Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow downplay the alarming warnings from the government’s top expert on infectious diseases. increases and could cause 100,000 new infections a day.
“I think what Dr. Fauci said is that if people don’t take these things seriously, the numbers could continue to rise,” Mnuchin said.
Fauci, who was fired from the UK radio even when the US media is pressuring the White House to speak to the Americans, immediately contradicts Trump.
“In the United States, even in the toughest locks, only about 50 percent of the country is locked – this has allowed the perpetuation of the epidemic, which we have never been in very good control of,” Fauci told the BBC Radio 4 flagship. Today”.
“The problem we are facing now is trying to reopen or reopen the government and return it to some form of normalcy. We are seeing very annoying peaks in different individual states in the United States,” he added.
Another senior government health official, Admiral Dr. Brett Giroir has thrown a hole in another of Trump’s lies – claiming that the cases are only going up because the US is doing more corona tests.
“There is no doubt that the more tests you take, the more you will find out – but we believe that this is a real increase because positive rates are rising. So this is a real increase in cases,” Giroir told the Crisis Selection Committee. Corona on Thursday.
Biden accused Trump of wanting to move ahead with the crisis to focus on trying to re-elect him.
“Trump wants to declare his health crisis and solve unemployment. Unfortunately, he is wrong on both fronts,” the former vice president said on Thursday. Noting the number of lives lost, Biden added: “This is a direct consequence of the turmoil in the leadership of Donald Trump and a completely mismanaged crisis from the beginning.”
