  • Editor’s note: President Trump waited until Sunday evening to sign the pandemic relief bill, averting a government shutdown by mere hours, and caused great distress from uncertainty for Americans during the Christmas Weekend of a pandemic.
  • That Trump’s delay in signing this bill also delayed employment benefits for a week to 12-14 million citizens, is a travesty!
  • Trump played golf all weekend while the U.S. was in crisis.
  • CNN Trump feels no pressure to be President while Americans suffer at Christmas
  • This man’s callus disregard for hurting people has no bounds!
  • And what is with President Trump calling himself “pro-life” when he has done little to lead the nation in limiting the COVID-19 crisis, with over 330,000 virus deaths in the U.S. while on his “watch”?
  • Pro-life? Hogwash!
