He is supposed to protect the lives of citizens. Not SOME citizens. All citizens. THATS his job. He’s not a business man he’s a president. Responsibility Toward caring / protecting the lives of countries citizens. They can’t be cared for if they are dead. Stop saying we should kill people it’s going to become normal to you and you may end up doing something dangerous you can’t take back. It’s a sick mind set. Leave it. And for the 1000th time. It is not an elderly disease.. You can get very sick and die from covid19 at any age over 14. And anyone can have it without knowing and spread it. If it spreads the hospitals already crumbling , will collapse under the weight. No one can get treated for anything And the country falls apart.
the Economy is going to suffer if30% of people get sick and die.
I know people need work and money. But neglecting healthcare isn’t the way to solve that problem. it sets up a precedent that any group can be “ chosen” to dispose of. That already happened and the works apposed it.
@VIVANT I'm sorry but you completely missed my point. I believe in the same you do.My question is why is there such a big difference in the public debate in Europe and in the US? Because in Europe everyone (including politicians and businessman) seems to accept it will take 2 months and in the US people are arguing about opening up by Easter. Why?
And I do believe that elderly are treasure of our society, a window to our past that let us travel in time and somehow understand better our possible future.And I do believe that covid-19 can affect anyone, but let's be honest : elderly have much more risk of dying.
Americans are much more money obsessed and want things done fast. And trump knows whatever he says his followers will believe. Even if we all know this mess will last much longer.
Why do their lives not matter?
What matters more tens of millions of lives of all ages trillions of dollars in wealth and the entire economic system Or 2 or 3 million olds?
All human lives matter.. its stupid to suggest we give up on them.
A blue anon fight lol
@NorthwestRider everyone is anon on this site including you lol
So then I we can assume then that your parents and grandparents have already passed away or you just want them gone? That you have no freinds or family members that fall into that high risk group of people? If you do I surely hope they take note as to your true colors! Truth is you more then likely do know a few of us. You just don't know it. a lot of us look healthly and hold down jobs. And what your sayings will surely apply to you at some point in your life. You better hope someone just like yourself doesn't just write you off as old or weak and disposable.
Doesn't matter if I do or not the sacrifice of keepinf them alive is far worse than just letting them die
Why a lot will recover? It's pathetic to abandon people

Yup I dont get it🤯.
It's ridiculous and it seems like he's just trying to please his voters with that stupid comment. Hopefully not too many believe it. Unfortunately I get the feeling most will believe whatever he says
It would be better if he listened to scientific experts and let them make the call.
@RolandCuthbert What was he doing more than expressing a hopeful sentiment? The media has so many dimwits wrapped around their finger.
It is amazing to me how every Trump supporter is also a "trump whisperer". "What he really meant was. . ."He is supposed to be an adult. He needs no interpretation. When he talks, he says exactly what he means. He means to restart the economy sooner than possible. Because he believes his election chances are dependent upon the market. And not upon his ability to lead and organize a response that saves American lives.
I'm sure we're about to see plenty of policy changes from the Trump whitehouse in an effort to get the economy back on it's feet by Easter.
The economy back on its feet by Easter? Are you loving under a rock or something? There's no way this mess will go away anytime soon.
I don't think you really understand what you posted.1. Trump did not shut the economy down. Therefore he can do nothing to restart it.2. He can try to force the democratic governors to make people go back to work through blackmail. But since you don't even understand how the economy works, I am sure you are unaware of this.3. So that means this will get a whole lot uglier before it gets better. We have no national strategy to combat the virus. We have a President who is totally committed to taking out his fury with the other party even if it costs American lives. And his supporters simply do not care, even if they are the ones who end up paying the biggest price.
They haven't been burying the dead, just using coffins to transport them for incineration.
@October808 did i say the churches were full of people at funerals? i didn't think thats what i was saying... i thought i was suggesting churches were being used for storage of coffins...
You might just be right. We have to stop thinking you and yours are joking with us.
@RolandCuthbert Who would dare to joke about the almighty U. S. A? :DOn my own behalf, I know the difference between individuals, and the stereotypes that are attributed to the whole group.
But you re not joking about the U. S. A. In fact, i think it is a mistake to think you are joking at all.
@RolandCuthbert You are right: it's cynicism. As I mentioned 'otherwheres': I wish nothing bad to individual citizens, but overall, I find U. S. culture and the way of doing things... emm... irritating.
Because the alternative option isn’t better
@ecfresh Yes, it is. Everything's better than Trump at this point. If you can't see that, you're delusional beyond repair.
Pence is better?
@ecfresh You cannot vote for Pence, he's the vice president. Biden will be the alternative in the election.
You said everything is better than Trump. Did you just mean to say Biden is better than Trump?
@ecfresh Everything that's an available option at the election. That will most likely be Biden.
Right, so you are going back to work now?
I am still working... every I know WANTs to go back to work also.
Oh, everyone I know wants to go back to work too. But everyone else I knows loves living, they love their families, their friends, their parents, etc.So we are all staying home, unless deemed "essential". My staff are taking turns going into the office. I will join them when I come off self-quarantine. We are all taking precautions and washing our hands. So I am dubbing you a member of the Blue Anonymous group, since they are famous for making such posts.
So we both agree with what Trump said...
