The choice for Americans :

Silly old war hawk careerist politician with a litany of irreconcilablly poor performance and corruption strewn through his record. Possibly suffering mental deterioration, but supported by a party with proven competence in areas such as health care and education.

Vs

Silly old narcissist careerist with a litany of corruption and predatory opportunism at the expense of others. Almost certainly suffereing mental deterioration ( "I aced that test." That being the one to determine if his dementia was so extreme as to need care!) Possibly willing to ruin decades long alliances In order to win Twitter battles and with a demonstrated incompetence and indifference to the welfare of the populace that resulted in at least 100,000 unnecessary deaths.

"Could you please detail how Trump is responsible for 100,000 deaths ?"

Why certainly.

“ Here are 12 things Trump did to speed the pandemic and push the death count higher:
1. He didn’t prepare. For the first three years of his administration, he failed to take steps to prepare for a long-expected pandemic by expanding the inventory of critical medical supplies in the Strategic National Stockpile, strengthening the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and bolstering other critical components of our national public health system.
2. He ignored warnings. For several weeks starting in early January, he ignored early warnings about the grave threat posed by the coronavirus outbreak, squandering precious time needed to implement proven measures that would have limited active community spread of the virus.
3. He falsely assured the public. After the first COVID-19 cases were confirmed in the U.S., he repeatedly provided false assurances to the public that the coronavirus was contained and soon would disappear.
4. He failed to mobilize manufacturers. Trump failed to broadly and rapidly invoke his authority under the Defense Production Act to ramp up the manufacturing of:
* Disposable masks, gowns, face shields and other personal protective equipment needed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus to health care workers, first responders, transportation workers and people employed in other essential occupations;
* Coronavirus test kits and supplies that are essential to detecting infected individuals and performing contact tracing; and
* Mechanical ventilators and other medical supplies for treating COVID-19 patients.
5. He dragged his feet on curbing the spread of the virus. He delayed the development and implementation of federal social distancing and stay-at-home guidelines until widespread community transmission of COVID-19 was well underway.
6. He failed on testing. He failed to order the development and implementation of a federally funded and coordinated plan for massively scaled-up testing, community tracing and quarantining of all infected individuals and their potentially infected contacts.
7. He muzzled the experts. He sidelined and muzzled CDC staff who are public health experts in the management and containment of infectious disease outbreaks.
8. He blocked reopening guidance. For several weeks, Trump blocked the release of detailed CDC guidance for how to safely reopen businesses.
9. He spewed lies. At daily White House briefings for several weeks, he spewed false and misleading information as well as rosy projections about the spread of the pandemic that confused the public and undermined the efforts of state officials who have been forced to take the lead in responding to the pandemic without adequate federal support and resources.
10. He touted dangerous, unproven drugs and remedies. He repeatedly touted the use of the antimalarial drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine as “game-changing” treatments for COVID-19 despite the risk of potentially fatal adverse effects and the lack of any sound scientific evidence supporting such use. He even suggested crackpot ideas like injecting disinfectants to treat COVID-19.
11. He rushed reopening. Almost immediately after his own task force issued guidelines for a gradual, stepwise approach for reopening businesses and relaxing stay-at-home restrictions, he encouraged governors to reopen businesses and roll back restrictions well before their states met the minimal criteria outlined in the guidelines or had adequate programs for testing and contact tracing. In states that ignored his overtures, he encouraged people to engage in mass protests of stay-at-home orders and restrictions on businesses.
12. He discouraged the use of face masks. By refusing to wear a mask at public events, Trump has set a dangerous example for the rest of the country. The CDC recommends wearing a face mask in public where social distancing is difficult. Trump and other administration officials appear regularly without a mask, standing close to others.”

Could you please indicate where in this speech Trump recommended that people should inject bleach to defeat COVID . If you could point out anytime that Trump did anything more than suggest that disinfectant is handy for defeating viruses and that perhaps some medical experts could research this to potentially aid in the fight against COVID.

As far as I can see , he’s done nothing more than cede authority to medical experts and has not issued any form of medical advice or recommendations . Please show me that you haven’t wilfully misconstrued what’s been said .

trump sounds a lot like cuomo, ...or cuomo like trump...

“No city in the state can quarantine itself without state approval,” Cuomo said of de Blasio’s call for a shelter-in-place order. “I have no plan whatsoever to quarantine any city.”

Cuomo’s conviction didn’t last. On March 22, he, too, shuttered his state. The action came six days after San Francisco had shut down, five days after de Blasio suggested doing similarly and three days after all of California had been closed by Newsom. By then, New York faced a raging epidemic, with the number of confirmed cases at 15,000 doubling every three or four days."

"..But the timing of New York’s shutdown undeniably played a role in the dire human toll the virus has exacted. In April, two prominent experts said in a New York Times opinion article that their research showed that had New York imposed its extreme social distancing measures a week or two earlier, the death toll might have been cut by half or more.

It’s an assessment shared by Dr. Tom Frieden, the former head of New York City’s Health Department. “Days earlier & so many deaths could have been prevented,” Frieden tweeted in April."

"...In early February, with the virus raging mostly in China, Cuomo struck a note of caution, aimed at calming what he considered unreasonable fear of the new virus. The seasonal flu was a graver worry, he said. New Yorkers needed, in his words, to preserve a sense of reality."

". But while the state’s plan makes clear its obligation to be adequately prepared, Cuomo over many weeks sought to portray the federal government as the culprit for the crisis in shortages of protective gear and medical equipment such as ventilators."

"...By March 5, the number of COVID-19 infections in New York City were doubling every five or six days, and officials within the city’s Health Department had become increasingly frustrated at what they regarded as the mayor’s failure to comprehend the size and nature of the crisis. That day, he’d issued a press release expressing confidence that the city could still “beat this thing.”"

"...Taken together, the official’s contemporaneous notes, later shared with ProPublica, read like a disturbing diary of what the official came to see as a slow motion leadership disaster.

On Feb. 28, the official noted that the CDC had “made the pivot” to treating the COVID-19 threat as a full-blown pandemic. Why New York’s leaders, Cuomo and de Blasio, had yet to do similarly was beyond understanding. An onslaught was all but inevitable. The public would be rightly furious to be surprised by it."

".. The city official’s notes show that the Health Department into early March remained confounded by the mayor’s continued talk about prevailing against the threat.

“He doesn’t get it,” the official wrote. “Not convinced that there’s a volcano about to blow beneath us and thinks we need to beat this thing through ongoing containment efforts.”'

Blowin,

when Trump said:

"So it'd be interesting to check that."

He did suggest injecting bleach. Yes, he may not have outright said 'Inject bleach - you'll be fine'. He's the president, not someone commenting on a facebook post. He should be held to high standards.

Do you really think a press conference in the middle of a pandemic, about the pandemic is the appropriate place to 'prank' reporters, as Trump suggested he did. Do you think that's behaviour up to a standard of a leader of a country?

rump Is a Coward
Biden calls the president weak on crime, Russia, and the coronavirus. Trump proves him right.
By WILLIAM SALETAN
AUG 31, 202010:45 PM

One of Donald Trump’s biggest frauds is that he’s a strong leader. He says he’s tough on China, tough on borders, and tough on looters and anarchists. But when toughness really counts, he’s craven. He sucks up to Vladimir Putin, writes love letters to Kim Jong-un, begs Xi Jinping for help in getting reelected, and causes thousands of deaths by refusing to face a catastrophic virus. On Monday, Joe Biden launched a frontal assault on Trump’s cowardice. And Trump, in a press conference afterward, validated Biden’s indictment.
Trump thinks the recent wave of violence in certain cities—some of it related to protests against shootings by police—can help him change the subject from COVID to law and order. Biden, speaking in Pittsburgh, directly addressed that issue. “If Donald Trump wants to ask the question, ‘Who will keep you safer as president?’, let’s answer that question,” said Biden. “When I was vice president, violent crime fell 15 percent … The murder rate is up 26 percent across the nation this year under Donald Trump.”

From BB article

"When I was vice president, violent crime fell 15 percent … The murder rate is up 26 percent across the nation this year under Donald Trump.”

And from another article:

"Data from the National Commission on COVID-19 and Criminal Justice show that homicide and gun assault rates began increasing in late May, coinciding with the May 25 death of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man who died while in Minneapolis police custody. Floyd's death sparked a resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement and ignited a wave of protests both nationally and around the world.

"Rates of homicide, aggravated assault, and gun assault began to increase significantly in late May," according to the data report. "Multiple factors likely explain these trends, including diminished police legitimacy in the wake of Floyd's killing."

Available data from more than 15 cities showed that homicide and aggravated assault rose 37 and 35 percent in June, respectively."

more here:
https://www.newsweek.com/police-officers-across-america-quit-homicide-ra...

Not sure if/how they are linked but going forwards crime will possibly rise in the next year or so no matter what, the whole police force has been demonised cops retiring early, recruitment already down and will get worse, who on earth would want to be a cop in USA now?.

The irony of BLM to defund police etc is the lower social economic community's which often includes many African Americans are the ones that are going to suffer the most from a stretched police force.

The other piece of irony is if the trend of increased crime rates continue and there is less people wanting to become police, surely the funding of police will have to increase so crime can be dealt wiht and to encourage more people to become police...

Weird world.

I think BLM movement is divisive and it found an opportunity to expand its power when a citizen was killed by a police officer.

The riots are long since ceased being based on the death of an individual, they aren’t even about race anymore. They are Anti Trump riots. Nothing less. How distorted has public discourse gotten when the media claims that the democratically elected President’s decision to visit a part of America ( Kenosha ) is an act of incitement ? This is the ultimate act of appeasement towards these violent thugs who have no respect for democracy. That the President should be banished from a town in his own country because violent mobs threaten increased violence if he arrives is terrorism and blackmail. Holding a town to hostage if rioters don’t get their way ! This is evidence enough that the rioting is nothing more than pure Anti-Trump political violence.
