The United States has now become the world leader in a rather unfortunate category with the largest number of coronavirus victims. As of Friday March 27, there were 92, 282 confirmed cases and 1,380 deaths associated with the coronavirus in the United States. The area with the fifth highest total of deaths in the country is Orleans Parish, which leads the nation in fatalities per capita.
Ever since the coronavirus became a household word and the American people started to worry about its tremendous impact, President Trump and his task force have held daily media briefings. At these events, the President will usually make an announcement and then introduce members of his team who have important information to share with the American people. It is quite helpful to hear from these tireless public servants who are working day and night to save the lives of countless Americans.
Once again, hell broke loose at the White House. Meanwhile, California, New York and Illinois are on lockdown. More are likely soon go follow.
Now that we’re in crisis mode with the Covid-19, the issue of the moment involves Trump vs. a member of the media. Meanwhile, those most at risk are Americans who are just looking for answers.
Let us congratulate President Donald Trump for doing his job now that he cannot fabricate a campaign narrative of a “nothing burger” virus.
Today, we know that the Coronavirus, which he insists upon branding it as the Chinese Virus, is so much worse than what he and his gang had previously told us.
United States President Donald Trump has been doing a true public service each day by conducting his valuable and informative news conferences updating the nation on the coronavirus. He has provided Americans with a tremendous amount of crucial details on the race to stem the growth of the coronavirus. He also has been showcasing his excellent team of professionals who serve on the national coronavirus task force. These individuals are both experts and public servants as they have dedicated their time and effort to save the lives of Americans.
Major new steps to fight the Coronavirus in Louisiana: Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards took additional significant measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Louisiana, further limiting the size of gatherings to fewer than 50 people, closing casinos, bars and movie theaters and limiting restaurants to delivery, take out and drive-through orders only. These changes are effective statewide at midnight. Operations may be able to resume on April 13, however, the situation will be reevaluated seven days prior. In Louisiana, there are 132 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and two people have died.
Today, President Donald Trump officially called a national emergency to deal with the ongoing threat of the coronavirus. This is the latest in a series of escalating steps that have been taken to deal with the ongoing crisis.
While the President acts at a national level, Governors across the country are making similar decisions in their states. Sporting events, business conferences, schools, and other large gatherings have been either canceled or postponed.
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) just announced his intention to remain in the race for President. Sanders will debate former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday in Arizona in the first one-on-one encounter of the campaign. It will take a miracle for Sanders to win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at this point. His preferences for socialist and communist dictatorships have come back to do tremendous harm to his electoral chances.
President Donald Trump did not create the Coronavirus. He does not want it to spread. His administration has taken steps, to date, that has limited the breakout.
Nor did Trump cause the stock market to nosedive this week. There are many causes for what many are calling a correction that has nothing to do with Trump.
Nor, by the way, are the Chinese engaged in some type of wild-brained conspiracy to cause the US stock market to crash, ushering in a more socialist-friendly American government.
As usual, Democrats will stop at nothing to blame President Trump for literally everything. With the world anxiously watching the spread of the coronavirus, the Democrats have decided that President Trump is responsible. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are blaming the President for not allocating enough money to combat the spread of the disease.
Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer believes the President’s response to this health threat has been weak and delayed and that it will result in his Katrina type of political disaster. For those of us who survived Hurricane Katrina, it is disgraceful for any politician to use such a tragedy to score political points. The deadly storm killed over 1,800 people, but it was a disaster that was man-made in many respects. The levees designed to protect New Orleans failed and 80% of the city flooded. It was a failure at all levels of government: local, state and national.
