Trump’s nonsense continues as he tries to convince you that now 60-70,000 deaths are acceptable even as the death toll will get worse, especially when the second wave of infections develop.

Not a single ventilator ever arrived. A NY state official said the state entered into $69 mil contract w/ Yaron Oren-Pines (@yopines) at direct recommendation of White House coronavirus task force – so was this the official taskforce or the shadow taskforce run by Jared Kushner? https://t.co/n6DNtT07bT— Kim Zetter (@KimZetter) April 30, 2020
