This is the most INSANE accusation.
During a broadcast of “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Obama official Susan Rice stated that Trump did not care whatsoever for the American people. She accused him of “not giv[ing] a damn about the health and safety and the national security and the economic well-being of the American people.”
Rice was asked about Trump’s acceptance to Bob Woodward’s statement that he was downplaying the severity of coronavirus. She said, “Well, I think back in January he was trying to protect his empty trade deal with China and his, you know, loving relationship with Xi Jinping whom he praised repeatedly through much of the end of March.”
She added, “What he was really trying to do was protect himself, Andrea. And the reality is, and it’s tragic, and it’s been driven home, you know, emphatically by the president’s own words on tape. We have a commander in chief who does not give a damn about the health and safety and the national security and the economic well-being of the American people. He is in it for himself. All he wants to do is be re-elected at all costs, and, you know, make whatever money he can in the process through, you know, whatever means necessary. And this is an extraordinary, you know, reality that we’re living with. Never in our history that I can think of have, we had a president who really just doesn’t care. And who is willing to do extraordinary damage to this country that we all love and depend on for his own personal, political benefit.”
If he really didn’t care, he would have listened to Democrats and not prevent travel to and from China when he did.
