Note: “Party faithful” have withheld real numbers of new infection, suppressed numbers of deaths, all done at county level where GOP reigns, all at orders of White House operatives.

COVID numbers may be at 500,000 now. Study shows surge in deaths covered by “batching” like was done in Vietnam. COVID victims may well die, numerically, during a Biden presidency.
Daily Beast: President Trump was wary of making preparations for the coronavirus pandemic because he was concerned doing so would sent the stock market into a panic, the Financial Times reports. In a quote attributed to an unnamed Trump confidant who is said to speak to the president frequently, it’s claimed: “Jared [Kushner] had been arguing that testing too many people, or ordering too many ventilators, would spook the markets and so we just shouldn’t do it…
Because of our where COVID funds have been allocated – too little on testing – essential workers will bear the cost of a hasty reopening but won't partake in the benefits because they're largely not exposed to the stock market.
Our policies matter.https://t.co/dUpmxAIqfR

That advice worked far more powerfully on [Trump] than what the scientists were saying. He thinks they always exaggerate.”
tRump sat on his hands rather than use the power of the presidency to Protect America. Now he just wants us to happily die in service of his precious stock market. Meanwhile he hides in the Whitehouse covid testing everyone and himself constantly. He is a coward. pic.twitter.com/k0vSTMOChg

Elsewhere in the FT investigation into Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, an unnamed administration official is reported to have told the paper that trying to advise the president is like “bringing fruits to the volcano… You’re trying to appease a great force that’s impervious to reason.”
Reopen When Trump's @WhiteHouse Is INFECTED & WE Have NO Comprehensive Virus Testing?
WAVES Of Deadly Infections?

🇨🇦 Yet another spectacle put on by Donald Trump-bragging about past unemployment numbers, past stock market numbers-which had F-ALL to do with TESTING.
Not even 2% of Americans!https://t.co/ALGn9qeOJr
