Trump lied; 73,275 American died. 1 in 5 American workers has filed for unemployment (33 million) in the past two months. Main Street is devastated. Farm bankruptcies quickly growing. Virus numbers skyrocketing around the nation. Testing still not available. Vaccine still not available.

This all falls on you, uneducated and unstable Deplorables. You've destroyed America in 3 short years.
