The state of the country

“Donald Trump has been president for 1,321 days. When he was sworn in on January 20th, 2017, there was no virus, the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent, your children were going to school, cities were not embroiled in racial tension as they are now. But here we are: 30 million people are unemployed, people live in angst, anxiety, and sometimes fear of contracting the virus because the government—the federal government, led by Donald J. Trump—has done very little to address it nationally and come up with solutions nationally at a point in time when it could’ve made a difference. And the big thing right now, at this moment, on the second of September, is: Can you put your children in school? Well, you can’t. All of that is on Donald J. Trump,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle about Trump’s responsibility for the major problems facing America today.
