There is a chance if you are reading this; President Trump may have already saved your life. Viruses are not political and don’t choose between Democrats or Republicans. Viruses attack anyone. When President Trump ordered a travel ban on those from China on January 31, 2020 and Europe on March 12, 2020, he was bashed by Democrats and the media as “racist” and “xenophobic”. Nancy Pelosi tweeted on January 31, 2020, “The Trump Admin’s explanation of its un-American travel ban is a threat to our security, our values, and the rule of law.” Joe Biden also criticized Trump stating “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – to uh, and fear mongering.” The Democrat media also criticized Trump of overreacting and painting a narrative of Trump’s actions as “racist”. Biden later tweeted after the travel ban on Europe on March 12, 2020, “A wall will not stop the coronavirus. Banning all travel from Europe – or any other part of the world – will not stop it.” On April 3, 2020, 64 days after Trump announced his travel ban, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfeld stated, “Joe Biden supports travel bans that are guided by medical experts, advocated by public health officials, and backed by a full strategy.” “Science supported this ban. Therefore, he did too.” With the media and Democrats twisting the facts, Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff, who were engaged in a partisan impeachment trial in the early stages of the Coronavirus, announced a Coronavirus committee to investigate President Trump’s handling of the virus.
While President Trump conducted Daily Presidential Briefings on the Coronavirus and the government’s response, Democrat media outlets like CNN and NBC refused to air the briefings since President Trump was appearing presidential. CBS News even used hospital footage from Italy to describe conditions in New York. No wonder why President Trump calls these media outlets “Fake News”.
President Trump touted a treatment called Hydroxychloroquine. The media then went on to question such treatment and made a dishonest claim that Trump has a “stake in Hydroxychloroquine drugmaker, only because he has stock in a mutual fund that list the drug maker. That is a stretch since mutual funds have several companies.
New York, Nevada, and Michgan’s Democrat governors all banned Hydroxychloroquine placing their citizens at risk and Tavia Galonski, a Democrat from Ohio, vows to report Trump’s Hydroxychoroquine remarks as “crimes against humanity” to be prosecuted in an international court.
Doctor Anthony Cardillo and other doctors across the country are actually seeing promising results using Hydroxychoroquine on patients. Seems like Trump was right again and Democrat who use the treatment are surviving. One such Democrat, Karen Whitsett, a state representative from Michigan, credited Trump with saving her life through the treatment of Hydroxychoroquine. She stated, “I honestly felt like I was going to die” during a visit to the White House with President Trump.
President Trump has stated the cure cannot be worse than the problem itself. The fact is there is over a 98 percent recovery rate. While President Trump is weighing the time to open the economy, those same Democrats who claimed he was overreacting when he shut everything down are now opposing him on his options to open the economy back up. Democrats have obstructed assistance for small businesses and sought personal goodies, such as funding for the Kennedy Center of Performing Arts, which such stimulus could have provided additional ventilators. Congress also provided themselves a pay raise while President Trump donated his quarterly salary for research of a cure against the virus.
The amount of deaths from the virus has been lower than originally projected. We now have a treatment that works and people are practicing “social distancing” and using causation.
If Joe Biden had been president, how many more Americans would have been infected during that 64 day time period of the original travel ban on January 31 to his campaign’s admission on April 3 that he now supports the travel ban? How many more Americans would have died? Fact is, countless more Americans would have gotten the virus from countless more individuals carrying the virus from China or Europe to America.
Democrat activist Jennifer Rubin tweeted, “If Biden is serious about winning he needs to accuse Trump of willingness to kill people.” The irony is that those that have accused President Trump’s willingness to kill people actually may have had their own life saved by President Trump.
