‘This Is Trump’s Plague Now’: Ex-Bush Assistant Lays Blame For New Coronavirus Spike

The blame for the second spike of the coronavirus that the United States is presently sustaining can be directly laid on President Donald Trump, stated an ex-speechwriter for former President George W. Bush.

” The very first coronavirus spike, in late April, can be blamed on President Donald Trump’s neglect. The 2nd spike, in June, is his own doing,” David Frum argued Monday in a brand-new column for The Atlantic, where he now works as a senior editor.

” This is Trump’s pester now,” he added.

Frum noted how the earlier sacrifices made by individuals mandated to stay-at-home for weeks had actually now been discarded with the early reopening of the country for the sake of economy, without the appropriate safety measures in place to fight the spread of the contagion.

What “has actually taken place in the U.S. in June, and what will occur in July, is entirely Trump’s fault,” stated Frum.

” This time, though, truth will not be blustered away,” he continued. “10s of thousands are dead, and millions run out work, all since Trump could not and would refrain from doing the job of illness control– a job that consists of setting a positive example to those Americans who trust and follow his leadership.”

” How deadly will this brand-new peak be? We will find out that the way we seem to find out whatever in this period of Trump: the tough way,” Frum concluded.
