The plutocracy understands that their failure is precipitating their demise. The Trump admin is using his press conference to both pander and attempt to build-up the image of an exploitative private sector.
Press Conference for who?
I have been watching all of Donald Trump's COVID-19 pressers. But this last press conference took the cake with the private sector symbolism.
While we should not indulge in conspiracy theories, it is quite appropriate to ask why did Donald Trump's team not assist him in seeing the reality of pandemics.
When one follows the chronology of COVID-19 it becomes immediately evident that the Trump administration dropped the ball. While the CDC fiddled for weeks with a test that did not work, they could have purchased the test manufactured by a German company. But America has a policy of developing these tests on its own.
