The heating up and the fading away

KEY STORIES FROM TRUMP’S TERRIBLE WEEK!

  • Editor’s note: To underscore the “fading away” of national leadership that has lacked a cohesive COVID-19 response, the Trump Administration has been informed that the European Union (EU) is preparing to issue a new travel ban on the US due to the spread of coronavirus cases in the country. In the last 65+ years, the U. S. has been the “gold standard” on being aggressive to stop community spread of diseases.
  • That the EU may ban Americans demonstrates Trump has forfeited how the U. S. is now perceived worldwide!
  • And speaking of fading away, Trump was even absent from his own Coronavirus Task Force briefing yesterday, their first in 2 months!
  • This caps off a really bad week for a “fading” Trump!

Few people are traveling during the pandemic, and the fees from visa and citizenship applications and other services provided by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are down sharply. Because of that, the agency may need to furlough more than 13,000 employees (three-quarters of its workforce).
