Trump knew how bad the COVID-19 pandemic was shaping up to be all the way back in January and February. But he didn’t protect the American people. He lied to us, intentionally, over and over again. While he was behind closed doors remarking about how COVID-19 “rips you apart,” Trump was standing in front of Americans telling us it was a “Democrat hoax.” He knew this wouldn’t be over by Easter. He knew Americans would die. He knew and he did nothing to stop it.

Because Donald Trump chose to lie to us instead of protecting us, we have lost over 200,000 friends, neighbors, community members, and loved ones. We have lost precious time and memories we will never get back. We have lost so much this year, and we will lose so much more if Donald Trump is allowed to continue this path of destruction.
