Trump responsible for many of the 575,000 Americans killed by Covid-19- here’s why:

U.S. intelligence warned President Trump and lawmakers multiple times throughout January and February of 2019 about the pending corona virus pandemic. They even knew that China was greatly downplaying its severity. Unfortunately, President Trump and mainly GOP lawmakers did what China did… downplayed the threat and failed to take action that would have slowed its spread and saved many American lives.

The intelligence reports didn’t predict when the virus would hit America, only that it would definately reach our shores soon. The CIA, FBI and NSA, along with the super-secret NRO, with its satellite imaging, collectively tracked the spread of the virus in China and in other countries, and warned Trump that Chinese officials were minimizing (lying about) the severity of the outbreak.

Today, 575,000 Americans have been killed by the coronavirus and the number would be much less if then President Trump had listened to and responded appropriately to what U.S. intelligence was telling him.
