Journalist and Environmental activist Harvey Wasserman makes it clear, the economic collapse & the COVID-19 pandemic is on Trump. Unfettered capitalism closes the loop.
Harvey Wasserman gets real about Trump
We must stop dancing around the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic did not have to cause the new impending great depression. A lack of leadership and an economic system that reward it is to be blamed.
Those who benefit the most from it, the parasites of our society who as well are the beneficiaries of most of the spoils are to blame. And as Harvey Wasserman eloquently articulates, Donald Trump is the tool, the puppet that not only got tens of thousands killed but tens of thousands more to come.
Wasserman recently wrote the article “How the Woodrow Wilson Influenza of 1918 & the TrumpVirus Pandemic of 2020 Brought Fascism to America” that all should read. He wrote the following.
Before its arrival, Trump dismantled well-established agencies specifically designed to fight predictable pandemics like this one. When the virus hit, he ignored desperate medical professionals who warned him very explicitly of what was about to happen.
Desperate to preserve the illusion of a booming economy, Trump refused to protect public health. He let vital supplies and equipment run short, then made states fight for them. He promoted untested treatments like hydroxychloroquine (in which he has personal investments), advocated drinking bleach, and attacked Obamacare and other vital insurance programs.
Like Wilson’s pandemic, nearly all the Trump-COVID disease, death, and economic ruination could have been avoided.
Trump’s malignant neglect has not so far killed 650,000 Americans. But he may get there yet with the rapid escalation of the death toll by demanding “business as usual” without sane precautions.
The entire interview is worth a listen. It is short and concise.
