It is difficult to find the right words to describe Donald Trump's refusal to take the coronavirus plague seriously or to take action to protect the American people from its growing spread.

From initially calling the pandemic a "hoax", to claiming that it would miraculously "go away", to promoting fake "cures" that only added to the public health danger, while refusing to let his own top medical expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, testify before Congress, Trump has shown that he doesn't care about the health or safety of the nation that he has sworn to protect.

Trump's latest push to "reopen" America in the faceo f the continuing spread of COVID-19 is only the latest instance of Trump's utter lack of concern for the health and welfare of the American people whenever it interferes with his own ambitions. The Guardian describes this policy accurate in its May 6 article:

Trump's push to reopen US risks death sentence for many, experts warn

Therefore, it is ironic, to put it mildly, and beyond hypocritical, to state the case more accurately, that while Trump continues to show such utter disregard for the health and safety of the American people, more than 70,000 of whom have already died from this plague, with much higher figures being predicted,, Trump's top immigration advisor, Stephen Miller, has been trying to use public health as a pretext to advance his white supremacist immigration agenda.
