Trump says 'deaths are way down' on the day Fla., Texas, Calif. report record COVID-19 deaths. Is HE stupid, or does he know that YOU are?

“We have a mortality rate, think of this, that’s ten-fold better than any other — what we’re doing is incredible,” Trump said. “If you look, you’ve heard the numbers: Tenfold. We have fewer people dying.”

"According to Johns Hopkins University, the U.S. has one of the higher death rates in the world. Despite that, Trump continued to push the narrative that COVID-19-related deaths are going down, while at the same time lamenting the media’s focus on new cases, even as states across the country are seeing increased positivity rates."

    Your source is wrong. 336 deaths nationwide today.  CORONA is not in the top 30 mortality causes in the US.  Trying whip up hysteria has run its' course.

    For the week ending 4/18 the CDC reported 16,886 deaths.  For the week ending 7/4 they reported 302.  That means there has been a 98% reduction from the peak. I would that qualifies as "way down."  You seem to be assuming that cases equal deaths.    https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/index.h...

    so then, the last city council meeting you attended...how did your mayor and city councilman say that trump was specifically affecting policy?

    you do attend city council meetings and know your city councilman....right?

    or is trump so powerful that he manages to prevent you from being involved in the things that actually do have a direct effect on your life?

    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    We all know that only liberals are as stupid as they claim Trump is.

    The fact you conveniently ignore is that we have a low fatality rate per case, and that the fatality rate per case is decreasing.  Our confirmed case fatality rate is 41st in the world and better than 19 European countries, including Germany.

    The vast majority of the new cases will not result in deaths.  Not every governor is stupid enough to put infected people into nursing homes and long-term care facilities filled with vulnerable people.
