“Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich reveals the true motivations behind Trump’s push to reopen the economy before it’s safe.
Internal polls show Donald Trump losing in November unless the economy comes roaring back. So what is Trump’s reelection strategy? Ignore the warnings of public health experts and reopen the economy at all costs. Here’s his lethal 4-part plan:
1) Remove income support, so people have no choice but to return to work.
2) Hide the facts.
3) Push a false narrative about “freedom” and “liberation.”
4) Shield businesses against lawsuits for spreading the infection.
The first responsibility of a president is to keep the public safe. But Donald Trump couldn’t care less.
He’s trying to force the economy to reopen to boost his electoral chances, and he’s selling out Americans’ health to seal the deal. No matter the cost, Donald Trump’s chief concern is and will always be himself.”
