COVID-19: First Trump Ignored It, Then He Promoted It As A Hoax, Then He Tried to Cover It Up, and Now It's About To Explode

Thom plus logo The Trump administration has known for three to four months that the coronavirus was on its way to the United States.

The National Security Council and the Department of Homeland Security each had, when Trump came into office, specific divisions to deal with epidemic diseases like this. Donald Trump closed them both down two years ago and fired all of their employees.

Because Trump has done absolutely nothing about this & knew it was coming, we now have coronavirus all over the United States, almost certainly thousands to tens of thousands of cases, without the ability to easily test for it and with our hospitals and healthcare systems unprepared.

First Trump ignored it, then he tried to cover it up, and now he's trying to behave like he's doing something, but all he really seems to be doing is pushing the Fed to lower interest rates to help rich investors even more. The incompetence of the Trump administration is breathtaking, and has put every American at risk.

How funny is it when the left accuses Russia colluding with Trump to steal the 2016 election with $200,000 - $300,000 in phoney facebook ads and Mike Bloomberg can spend over $500 million and is now out of the race. But then, nobody has accused the left as being the sharpest tools in the shed.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
