LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Trump’s erratic response to COVID-19 fails Michigan

Despite being warned about Coronavirus in January by members of his own administration, President Donald Trump called the virus a “Democrat hoax” and downplayed the threat. Now as doctors and nurses are sounding alarms about the lack of supplies, he’s accused them of selling their face masks and claimed the hospitals don’t need the ventilators they’ve requested.

Our health care workers are under-resourced and patients are suffering, while Trump focuses on shifting blame and picking political fights with governors like Whitmer and Cuomo, both of whom are working to keep their constituents safe. Even as we all fight a global pandemic, President Trump is working to strip health care away from 720,000 Michiganders by asking the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down the Affordable Care Act.

Donald Trump’s erratic response to the Coronavirus crisis has failed Michigan. He has left doctors and nurses health at risk by not providing adequate medical supplies such as personal protection devices, masks and ventilators. All the while he continues to attack health care for everyday people.

Trump should do his job and manage the crisis instead of attacking leaders like Gov. Whitmer.

  1. We like president trump he is doing a good job all democratic governor need to stop and just do their job he sent them the stuff they asked for and the still complained and mich people are sick of politics from our officials start treating people with respect and dignity specially when it comes to jobs and earning a living like the barber they keep giving a hard time too people just want to get back to work earn a living

  2. But an examination of the video and transcript show Trump actually described Democratic complaints about his handling of the virus threat as “their new hoax.” The Livingston Post should take this lying letter down.

  3. Spoken like a true Trump hating Liberal. You should be blaming Governor WitNit for the problems instead of our great President.

What do you think?
