“Needless suffering and death.”

Published on May 12th, 2020

Trump announced new safety rules at the White House after more than a dozen employees have tested positive for COVID-19. Masks are now a requirement — except in the case of Trump, who was not wearing one yesterday where he announced ordering the new rules.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, plans to issue a stark warning to the Senate this morning over the dangers of reopening the country’s economy too swiftly. In an email to NY Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg, Fauci warned against “the danger of trying to open the country prematurely,” because the result may be “needless suffering and death.”

Those comments contradict Trump’s messaging and insistence that the nation must prioritize reopening, even if it causes more deaths.

Trump also stood beside a poster proclaiming, “America leads the world in testing” — despite the fact that Germany, Russia, Spain, Canada, Switzerland and at least 20 other countries have actually issued more tests per capita than the United States.

Fauci’s testimony, alongside other top health officials, will be the first time Trump has allowed them to appear before the Senate since Trump declared a national emergency in March.  Trump refuses to allow them to provide testimony in the House of Representatives.

“We have met the moment and we have prevailed,” he declared triumphantly.  Mission Accomplished?
