Control the Virus and Protect Workers—and the American Economy Will Roar Back
Over the past few months, President Donald Trump’s performance has been both unprecedented and unpresidential.
He’s endangered those around him by trying to transform the pandemic into a culture war. He’s derided science, claiming facts are fiction and that his own beliefs should be considered canon. He’s stoked xenophobia without a second thought. And time after time, he’s shown that he neither understands nor respects the heroes protecting this country — the men and women defending it from enemies abroad and those others protecting it from a virus that’s already killed more than 220,000 Americans.
While we can never tolerate or grow numb to Trump’s behavior, the sad reality is that it is no longer surprising. This is who he is.
