    Red states will not DIE for Trump. Every sick person has dozens of friends and family that are turning blue. Texas Florida Arizona. Smart move.

  • Alex King says:

    I wish we had someone like him in europe

    • Pak De says:

      You did but apparently he killed himself.

    • Alex King says:

      @Pak De you obviosly dont know what you talking about, entiteld america kid. We had many dictators in europ and i can tell trump is note like any one of them

  • Brian Connelly says:

    I cannot believe what’s happening. He refuses to listen to Fauci et al. He is killing the USA, helped by idiots like Pence. It is all so unreal.

  • Dan Rich says:

    The President said it’s too “..tough and expensive” to save the lives of children.
    I’ll remember that in November.

    Trump? Bidin?

      Would you want the job? There’s your answer (assuming you’re not insane LoL)

  • Richard K. Flowers says:

    Trump won’t be satisfied until we are all dead from the Covid-19 virus. What he doesn’t realize is that there won’t be anyone left to worship him. Then what will he do? Go to another country and do to them what he did to us? There’s no satisfying this evil sadist.

  • OBoo Strauss says:

    Looks like he’s been led out by the military. Lol

  • Brandon Angstman says:

    I’m terrified to think if how many will die just to massage this idiots ego

  • Froggy says:

    Dr. Fauci IS a nice man, and an honest one. Unlike you donnie.

  • Anna says:

    He’s not making any parent send their kid back to school PERIOD- he cannot control our decisions

  • TheUsername217 says:

    So how are they going to practice school shooting drills without breaking social distancing rules?

  • Chitchatr says:

    Journalist stating facts or part of the biased seditious media looking to affect an election? Take the poll at unbiased free speech social network. Get facts not fiction. Free think and free speech at What is the number of people testing positive/ number of people tested? What is the morbidity rate as of today? get the facts at the CDC website. In general based on CDC you have a 96% survival rate. 132,855 deaths/ 3,106,931 cases in US = 4% morbidity rate or 96% survival rate. . The virus is serious and sadly has affected many but there needs to be perspective. All you get here is biased news, Try telling us about treatment somethig worthwhile and BTW did not Obama stop testing with the swine flu in 2009? Why ? Pathetic reporting or seditious you decide

  • Chris Adkins says:

    Trump has a timeline, he’ll send kids to school in September, he’ll say everything’s great, it’ll take a couple of months for them to get sick, and by that time it’ll be election day.

    All illnesses can be passed…not just covid? Older people adjust to them all?

    If children start getting sick and die from trump forcing our childre/ grandchildren back into schools there will be no saving anything about his presidency- he will be done

    • Marty Baldwin says:

      He wouldn’t force MY children, period.

  • Johnny C says:

    He knows schools won’t reopen. He just wants to pass his own failures onto Democratic Governors & Congress for education funding. Trump is fvcking useless.

    Trump has failed in the only two crises he has faced in his presidency, the virus and civil unrest. And he keeps right on failing with both.

    Trump finally did the right thing and wore a mask. I hope this is the turning point. Maybe we can start beating COVID-19 now.

    • Pojo says:

      88happiness It was just a stunt put on for the reporters, you probably won’t see him wearing one again.

  • Akio Le says:

    It’s kind of sick watching when Trump speaks. The way he talks and what he says is exactly the same way babies soiled their diapers. Babies couldn’t care less when, where, and what they soil in their diapers. Alike Trump cares about where, when, and especially what comes out from his mouth.

    Trump is only for trump himself . Hey republicans…… do you think he care about you or your child’s ?

  • S Tim Ulate says:

    trump cares not about reelection or the wall he only cares about acting like there is something he wants but cant have, something that someone might take from him in this case bipartisan joe he is only interested in the asocial value the anti social value, he is a complete sociopath as is joe, this information is reliable and completely trust worthy, follow current events and to some its is all writing on the wall in plain site

  • Max Go says:

    it is dangerous for the children, and they can bring it home to their parents and grandparents. and that’s the most dangerous thing. let trump send his grandchildren to school first. ask Ivanka if she will send her children to school.

  • xyzzyxf says:

    The only chapter that Trump aced in his math class is Division.


    I’ve been watching all these sneak previews for “Idiocracy 2”, but when is the movie coming out?

  • Edward Emmick says:

    So the children need to be warriors? If they get sick do they stay at school or is it a given they come home to infect their family? Trump is a transmission vector. Don’t listen to him.

  • Francyne Lane says:

    Trump is wearing a mask because he doesn’t want to catch covid19. Trump is not only insane he is evil.VOTE A STRAIGHT BLUE TICKET.

    • Mary Cel Frumos says:

      He should duck tapes his mouth instead wearing a mask

    God please take trump out of office

  • Holandrach says:

    I would suggest going to On of 07/12/2020 the death rate fell below the epidemic
    threshold. Not suggesting things are good by any means. But it does appear to fall somewhere in between CNN’s “We’re all going to die if we don’t hide in our
    homes” and FOX saying “Don’t worry about it”. Please don’t develop such impassioned opinions based on a news cast. If it’s important to you I suggest then
    doing your own research. CDC states covid has minimal impact on kids, based on this I believe keeping them out of school will cause more harm.

  • Kim Cornelissen says:

    just like Trump says everyone has a choice to wear a mask the same should apply that every parent , child, teacher and governor has a choice of whether they open up their schools.

  • Marina Dubois says:

    Ever tried “social distancing “ kindergarteners or 1 st graders ? Even if it’s “only” a small percent of children who get really sick or die. There are 56 million students in USA. Thousands of children could suffer horribly. The kids will take the virus home to grandma who watches them. There offering no plan , no extra funding. The poor will get sick and die in greater numbers. It’s happening now and will get much worse. We don’t have a national response because trump refuses to take any responsibility yet says he can tell the whole country to reopen schools or they’ll cut federal funding for schools.

  • Steven Jamison says:

    Trying to keep up with Trump’s poor choices is exhausting.

  • Randy Palmer says:

    In the past, unprincipled leaders have used children to clear minefields.

  • Jalapeno says:

    This is who, what he is, he cares nothing about anyone. If children’s lives mean nothing to him what is the military to him? The most vile individual not just as President but as a person.

    “Study from the New England Journal of Medicine Shows the Only Reason for Keeping Children Home from School is Politics” 13 July 2020
    QUOTE: “[E]ven if children do get infected, they are less likely to transmit the disease to others than adults. We have not found a single instance of a child infecting parents.“
    Alasdair Munro
    Jul 2, 2020
    Replying to @apsmunro
    Small numbers, but some early lessons:
    -Kids/teachers can catch #SARSCoV2 in school
    -Transmission appears mostly rare
    -Teenagers may be higher risk for transmitting (consistent with evidence of higher case loads, plus lots of close social mixing)
    What else to consider?

    Alasdair Munro
    First, there is almost no controversy that children’s safety is not the concern from being in school
    Their risks of becoming infected and severely unwell are incredibly low (even accounting for the extremely rare hyperinflammatory syndrome)

  • Tarra Lynn says:

    i think the numbers r still very jhgh but children still need to learn. asking them to keep 6 feet in impossible. parents coming for pick up cannot either. its not always a smooth pick up. i prposee we set a number goal where cases have declined to a controllable amt and in the meantime appoint someone in the home to help. probide them witj a gift cardd or a specialized package of supplies and a set plan for teaching. the parents can report weekly to the teachers if some students r strugglung they can work with the teacher. also they could provide dree wifi for homes that do not have it and a lap top. this is a much wuser choice at this time so we dont see a 3rd wave. has anyone heard how this virus may be affecting childten ??
