Navigating Coronavirus — May 27

In today’s email, we look at new polling on how Americans feel about masks (spoiler: they really don’t like Trump not wearing one, and think people who don’t wear them are irresponsible), sentiment on reopening and Trump’s dangerous rush to end social distancing, and how Trump is pushing to force Americans back into unsafe working conditions while helping out big business.

Read on for today’s Navigating Coronavirus…

It’s been 90 days since President Trump said we’d soon have zero cases in the U.S. We now have 1.7 million cases and more than 100,000 deaths.

THE LATEST

Message guidance on the latest developments with President Trump’s handling of the crisis.

AS WE MOURN 100,000 DEAD AMERICANS, TRUMP’S LIES AND INCOMPETENCE ARE MAKING THIS CRISIS WORSE.

More than 100,000 Americans are now dead on Trump’s watch after he promised coronavirus would disappear in April and that we would only see 60,000 cases. Instead of mourning this staggering loss of life, Trump has been tweeting about the stock market, golfing, and peddling conspiracy theories.

But that’s a lie.

And Trump’s actions now are putting even more lives at risk as more trying times remain ahead of us.

TRUMP’S RUSH TO PREMATURELY END SOCIAL DISTANCING IS ENDANGERING AMERICANS.

Trump is making us less safe by pushing to reopen while cases are increasing across the country — and this weekend we saw the damage rolling back social distancing too soon.

ECONOMIC CRISIS IN CONTEXT

The latest on how the economic crisis sparked by coronavirus is actually fueled by years of President Trump’s conservative economic policies, focusing today on Trump’s continued prioritization of big business over workers and families.

While people across the country are focused on keeping themselves, their families, and their communities healthy — Trump and his allies continue prioritizing Wall Street and corporate profits.

ONE MORE THING . . .

WATCH AND SHARE >> What defines Trump’s presidency? 100,000 dead Americans, a collapsed economy, more cases than any other country in the world, and utter chaos.
