Leaders of the Democratic Party have ripped President Trump for his administration’s response to the coronavirus, but Donald Trump Jr. says he’s not surprised at their rhetoric.
“Not at all,” he said on Fox News. “I mean, we’ve seen — like you said, we’ve seen this play out for four years. Anything that they can use to try to hurt Trump, they will. Anything he does in a positive sense, like you heard from the reporter that was just suspended from ABC, they will not give him credit for. The playbook is old at this point.
“But for them to try to take a pandemic and seemingly hope that it comes here, and kills millions of people so that they could end Donald Trump’s streak of winning, is a new level of sickness. You know, I don’t know if this is coronavirus or Trump derangement syndrome, but these people are infected badly.”
Democrats have been grasping at anything they think will hurt Trump. They conducted probes into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia for years — which went nowhere. Then they impeached the president over a phone call with the president Of Ukraine in an attempt to oust him from office, which quickly died in the Senate.
Now, Democrats are gleeful about the slide in the stock market and the fears over coronavirus, which appear as if they could damage the U.S. economy. To Democrats, that’s great, since Trump is running for re-election with one of the strongest economies in decades.
In Hollywood, actress Patricia Arquette is urging Americans to join a one-day economic shutdown in order to damage the U.S. economy — and Trump.
“A REMINDER: Please contact everyone you know. On Monday, March 2nd, there is an Economic Shutdown. #Shutitdown. It’s easy,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY ON ANYTHING ANYWHERE. our goal is to cause a $238.2 billion dollar blip on the federal government’s records.”
She isn’t the only liberal openly hoping for a recession. HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher said last year: “So I’ve been saying for about two years that I hope we have a recession. A recession would be very worth getting rid of Donald Trump and these kind of policies.”
