The Trump administration has been a major failure on many levels. Because of this, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must be elected so as to change the course of these poor federal responses.
The Trump administraton has failed on the Covid-19 pandemic response to the virus that has killed more than 200,000 people already and will probably kill 240,000 by election day. Sadly, we will likely see more than 300,000 die by the end of the year. This is tragic.
Even as the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Dr. Robert Redfield has encouraged the wearing of face masks to control the spread of the virus, Trump openly disagrees with him and his own experts. Trump mocks the use of masks for the public even as renowned medical experts believe if masks were mandated from the beginning of the pandemic, for everyone, tens of thousands of people would not have died. In the recently released book entitled “Fear” by Bob Woodward, Trump provides hours of taped interviews where he admits his original and early knowledge of how deadly and contagious the Covid-19 virus was. The taped interviews prove he had this knowledge while at the same time he “played down” the virus in what he said to the public.
A new federal administration is needed to replace those who are not doing their jobs to keep us safe.
And now, with the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Trump is pushing forward to replace her with a conservative justice. If successful Trump have appointed three conservatives to the court during his administration. This will have the potential to put at risk those civil rights and protections which are so iimportant to Latinx, people of color, poor persons and LGBTQ communities. With the Supreme Court more conservative and the threat of four more yeas of this Trump administration, the checks and balances of the federal government are getting more hard to see. Only if the Democrats take back control of all arms of the government can the damage this administration is causing be stopped and righted in a different direction.
The Trump administration has failed on Immigration Reform and in finding a solution for the Dreamers and other immigrants who are here so they can come out of the shadows and fully participate in the American Dream. Rather, human beings and young children have been separated from their families and children placed in cages for seeking refuge from violence in their home countries.
The Trump administration has failed on issues of addressing Police Brutality. In light of the senseless killings of black and brown people, this administration has not been able to speak directly to the country to open up a meaningful dialog about the problem. This administration has not been able to provide leadership that could cause local jurisdictions to immediately review their policies for law enforcement and stop the killings.
The Trump administration has failed to improve health care and make stronger and better the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare. Just days after the upcoming election, the Trump administration will once again argue before the Supreme Court to end the ACA as we know it. This all during a pandemic.
Trump campaigned in 2016 on a plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare with something better. After four years of trying to end ObamaCare with nothing to replace it, this has been an empty promise. What plans have you seen this administration unveil to improve access to health care and lower your cost of health insurance? The Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare is working and the Trump administration has only tried to shut it down. If that were to happen, tens of thousands of persons on HIV treatment and PREP covered by MediCaid or the Health Care Exchanges would lose coverage.
The Trump administration has failed on the environment. The administration withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord. Take note of the warming weather in California and the wild fires which seem to get worse every year. We are in the midst of global warming and this administration’s view is to do nothing. Nothing at all.
A vote for Biden and Harris on November 3, 2020 will change the course on all of the above. Vote and call your family and friends and ask them to vote. Volunteer to get the vote out from now until election day.
