16,000 New Yorkers Could Die From Coronavirus, And The Blood Is On Trump's Hands

It is hard to imagine the situation the United States would be in if President Trump had handled the coronavirus more seriously than he did in the beginning.

16,000 New Yorkers Could Die From Coronavirus, And The Blood Is On Trump's Hands

Governor Andrew Cuomo has now estimated that 16,000 New Yorkers could die from the coronavirus. The number of deaths in the state has grown dramatically to 1,941. And, according to Vice News, 400 people died from coronavirus in a 24 hour period in New York.

President Trump has let Americans down by drastically underplaying the severity of the coronavirus from when it first came into the cultural consciousness. Hospitals in New York are so short on ventilators that they have resorted to sharing ventilators between patients.

As the coronavirus continues to spread, with no real indication on when the curve will be flattened, it is hard to imagine the situation the United States would be in if President Trump had handled the coronavirus more seriously than he did in the beginning. Now, with death tolls rising in New York, there is a chance that 16,000 people will die from the virus.

It may be too harsh to blame Trump for the whole of these deaths, but it's important to hold elected officials accountable for fumbling what needs to be handled cleanly.

Trump was elected as President and in moments of crisis we look towards our leader to show us how to handle the crisis. In the beginning, Trump downplayed the pandemic, said it was going to go away on its own, and didn't take necessary precautions to ensure that if it did turn out to be a bigger deal than expected, the American infrastructure would survive in a stronger way than it is now.

For that lack of preparedness, Trump's inaction has accelerated this crisis in America and has driven it to the point we are at today — where 16,000 New Yorkers could lose their lives.

There needs to be some accountability on Trump's part for what is happening in our country, just as there needs to be accountability for every leader who's country was not prepared for the crisis. Sixteen-thousand deaths in just a single state are too many.

Debt Ceiling Turmoil Proves Too Much for US Government

The real question of who pays for running the government

Debt Ceiling Turmoil Proves Too Much for US Government

The US Debt Ceiling has been a long-lasting debate in the US and is an important part of the government's financial management practices. It is the total amount of money that the government is allowed to borrow to fund its operations, and must be negotiated and set by Congress. This limit helps Congress to manage the government's finances and ensure that the country remains fiscally responsible. In the event that the US runs out of money, Congress can increase the debt ceiling in order to borrow more money. If the debt ceiling is not raised, it could lead to defaulting on the nation's debt and adversely affect the country's financial standing. Therefore, it is an important measure for Congress to manage the nation's finances and ensure that the US continues to have a strong economy.

As a major investor in the research and development of autonomous driving technology, Elon Musk has been instrumental in developing the Autopilot system. Autopilot is an advanced driver assistance system that is designed to detect potential collision and reduce driver fatigue. The system utilizes a combination of cameras, radar, and ultrasonic sensors to identify objects and vehicles on the road, and to provide visual and audio alerts to the driver. Musk's involvement in the Autopilot project has notably increased the safety and reliability of Tesla vehicles, making them increasingly popular among consumers.

Amazing video shows one of the largest migrant crossings in El Paso last weekend

The migrant problem at the US border is a complex and multifaceted issue. It is primarily driven by people from Central American countries such as Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, who are fleeing violence, poverty, and lack of economic opportunity. As a result, many of these migrants seek refuge in the United States, often making dangerous and illegal crossings that involve significant risk. These migrants are often detained by US border agents and face deportation. The US government has responded to the migrant problem by increasing border security, constructing fences and walls, and enacting stricter immigration laws. The issue has become increasingly controversial, with many arguing for more humane treatment of migrants, while others argue for stricter enforcement.
