Falsehoods and Failures: Trump During COVID-19 (4/10 Update)

One of the most daunting things about living in the era of COVID-19 is that there is so much information flying back and forth from different sources that it can be hard to know whom to trust. That’s one reason why we at PFAW are providing weekly updates on what Donald Trump is saying and doing during the pandemic – because you probably shouldn’t believe or trust much of what he says.

This week has clearly demonstrated yet again that Trump’s priority during the novel coronavirus health crisis is not helping to save American lives or shoring up the struggling economy, but trying to position himself for reelection. For him, it will always be Trump first – and everyone else a distant second, if they even register at all.

Trump prioritized his own agenda again this week:

Disappointingly, we also learned that the Federal Communications Commission will not investigate Trump over the reams of misinformation that he has been spreading since the pandemic began, even with the very real dangers his lies pose to people nationwide (like his promotion of an unproven cure for the coronavirus, for example).

The Washington Post recently crowned Trump Commander of Confusion, and at PFAW, we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we’re here, to help you comb through the muck and make sure we’re all as informed as possible during this crisis.
