Americans are reeling as cities across the United States are burning, and the COVID-19 pandemic’s death toll is staggering, but Donald Trump is nowhere to be seen except on his Twitter account where he lashes out at the world. More than forty million Americans are out of work as the coronavirus grips the country, and we do not have a president to lead us through this apocalyptic nightmare as the White House announced that Trump will not be seen today — despite five days and nights of protests across the country.
Trump bungled the handling of the protests against the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers, and his appallingly slow response to the pandemic brought this country to a standstill.
So, Trump is hiding.
Just in, via @KevinBohnCNN: “We will not see President Trump today on camera. The White House has declared a photo lid for today.”

The WH already called a photo lid for today, which means we won’t see Trump as the nation burns.

I’m glad he’s not speaking, but also, the absolute vacuum in leadership in this country right now is terrifying. https://t.co/MzGkPHdqds

BREAKING: Trump refuses to address the nation today, because he’s a coward who should resign.
— Scott Dworkin (@funder) May 31, 2020
Instead of Trump, @BarackObama should address the nation.

What an utter failure he is

The nation is screaming for leadership as Trump cowers behind his Twitter account.
We need leadership – #WhereIsTrump

What an utter failure this president is. Everything was gifted to Trump his entire life, even the keys to the White House. Donald J. Trump has destroyed every single thing he’s touched. And who could have guessed this would have played out as it has — aside from the majority of voters in 2016. No one is surprised that a corrupt man such as Donald Trump would fuck up a healthy economy, stoke division and hatred, then hide in his safe place.
