Speaker Pelosi on Facebook: “Their business model is to make money at the expense of the truth.”

“Facebook admits that 64% of the people on Facebook who joined extremist groups did so because FACEBOOK RECOMMENDED THEY JOIN EXTREMIST GROUPS.”

Voters want to hear President* Trump ANSWER THE QUESTIONS instead of walking away.

Weijia Jiang and Kaitlin Collins would be great 2020 Presidential Debate moderators as this May 11 minute shows. Who else?

36+ million Americans are unemployed. We need a plan.

Paula Reid asked, “You’re overseeing historic economic despair. What’s the delay? Where’s the plan?"

Does President* Trump look like a man with a plan?

Are you better off than you were four years ago? Or even four months ago?

“When you test, you find something is wrong with people. If we didn’t do any testing, we would have very few cases. They don’t want to write that. It’s just common sense.”

“I think Russia is going to need ventilators. They’re having a hard time in Moscow. We’re gonna help them.”
— President* Trump on April 15, 2020

President Lincoln was the Great Emancipator who kept our Union together.

President* Putin is the Great Divider who is forcing us to exercise states’ rights. How does this Make America Great Again?

HumankindNOW.org is a non-profit that is raising money to supply life-saving PPEs to medical professionals across the USA.

Please give: gofundme.com/f/human-kind-n…

No contribution is too small. Together we will help save lives. #GetUsPPE
President* Trump REFUSES to procure enough PPEs to protect ALL U.S. health care workers.

And FEMA allows greedy companies to price-gouge PPEs.

HumankindNOW is all-volunteer so ALL donations to this GoFundMe are buying & sending PPEs to workers in need:

THIS IS FAILURE BY DESIGN — A policy CHOICE by President* Trump:

“Not a single shipment of medical-grade N95 masks arrived at U.S. ports during the month of March. The federal government was not only disorganized; it was absent.”

“What would you think if — when your governor asked the federal government for the disaster assistance that Congress has provided — the President* responded, ‘I would like you to do us a favor’?”
— Pamela S. Karlan, Dec 4 2019

President* Trump is STILL making governors compete for life-saving resources, instead of coordinating them TO SAVE THE MOST AMERICAN LIVES POSSIBLE.

Coronavirus outpaced SARS and Ebola in its first 55 days to sicken 81,000+ people worldwide.

President* Trump appears to prioritize protecting markets over protecting lives.

PLEASE wash your hands often...

President* Trump says coronavirus is a hoax.

Coronavirus shows us that President* Trump is a hoax, too.

Mike Pence touches his face and shakes hands too much to lead a #COVID19US crisis response.

If you have the bad luck of being near Pence, don’t shake hands, don’t touch your face, and WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN.

@JoyceWhiteVance Interesting theory that the real business the Trumps are in is revenge, not real estate.

@JoyceWhiteVance “...The story is that the Russian Mafia state is cultivating profit-yielding relationships with the aspiring Mafia boss of the U.S. and his band of crooks, subverting democratic institutions in the process...”

All 4 witnesses requested — Mulvaney, Bolton, Duffey, Blair — were deeply involved in President* Trump withholding aid to benefit himself.

If President* Trump is innocent, why won’t he let them testify?

President* Trump paid $2 million in fines after admitting to misusing his charitable foundation to further his political and business interests.

Yet, “Trump suggested he was neither sorry nor in the wrong.”

“The story is not that Putin is masterminding a vast brilliant attack on Western democracy. The story is Russian Mafia state cultivating profit-yielding relationships with aspiring US Mafia boss and his band of crooks, subverting democratic institutions.”

15/ Volunteer doctors @Doc4CampClosure offered to vaccinate children in U.S. custody FOR FREE. Border Patrol refused.

CDC says the 2019-2020 flu season could be particularly deadly.

Now the Docs are at the gates, vaccines ready:

16/ Which Side Are You On?

🔹 @Doc4CampClosure giving flu vaccinations to kids, or

🔹 Authoritarians arresting doctors offering humanitarian relief, wearing full gear — fatigues and balaclavas hiding their faces

"This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.”

High crime timeline:

Jul 25 — Trump offers bribe for favor
Aug 12 — Whistleblower files report
Sep 9 — Congress sees report
Sep 9 — Trump gaslights I WANT NOTHING
Sep 10 — Bolton bolts
Sep 11 — Aid released

President* Trump is relying on ‘20 treasons are better than 1.’ If you can no longer deny a crime, boast about it, try to normalize it. That's why the law must be the law, not politics.

Welcome to a THREAD OF IMMIGRANT THREADS.

Remember Judge Sabraw’s words on President* Trump forcibly separating families:

"The hallmark of a civilized society is measured by how it treats its people and those within its borders.”

2/ On Aug 21, 2019, President* Trump decided NOT to vaccinate ANY of the children or families in U.S. custody.



THREAD explaining why President* Trump jailing so many people in cages could cause an epidemic:

When this baby was in a cage, she caught a disease that killed her.

HER DEATH WAS PREVENTABLE.
