Here's something to think about...
The United States just recorded it's third-highest total of new COVID-19 cases, and the highest single-day total since April, and the third-highest total of any day of the pandemic.
Trump is hoping to convince people only he can save the economy. His plan to reopen states too soon involved sending people back to work with employers that don't take the proper safety measures. Food processing plants for example.
Trump intends to win one way, or another.
The "another" is sacrificing people on the altar of his desperation. No one is safe, friend or foe. He expects undying loyalty, but isn't loyal to anyone but himself.
Reality has been bitch-slapping Trump since January when he ignored the warnings sign of an impending pandemic.
His overt attempts of denial of the danger that the virus poses was seen when he held his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and then another mini-rally for young Republicans at a megachurch in Phoenix, Arizona. Both no face mask events with thousands of people in attendance.
I'm concerned that Trump's dismal polls are motivating him to take even more draconian measures to ensure a win. That he plans on interfering with the election (perhaps with foreign help) is no secret. He's also doing his best to discredit the election by claiming mail-in votes are a Democratic plot to defeat him at the polls.
Red lights are lighting up in Trump's tiny brain as he realizes the pandemic cannot be bullied.
