Trump Intentionally Threatens PPE Distribution For US

While the Coronavirus death toll in the United States surpasses 7,000, President Trump continues to seize up the distribution of Personal Protective Equipment that is meant to save lives. Now it's with the company 3M who manufacture much needed N95 respirators for the US but are also exporting them to Canada and countries in Latin America who are also dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic.

The head of Florida's Division of Emergency Management, Jared Moskowitz said in an interview on pro-Trump propaganda outlet Fox News that 3M refused to send him essential equipment while they were sending face masks to foreign countries. He said that the company "decided to make a globalist decision and not put America first." Moskowitz described that distribution as "criminal" and called for an investigation. He also claimed that he offered to pay more for the masks but that he was denied.

Trump then tweeted:



President trump's trade advisor Peter Navarro also chimed in about the global company during a press briefing.

"We've had some issues making sure that all of the production that 3M does around the world, enough of it is coming back here to the right places."

3M responded to Trump saying:

3M and its employees have gone above and beyond to manufacture as many N95 respirators as possible for the U.S. market. In addition, ceasing all export of respirators produced in the United States would likely cause other countries to retaliate and do the same, as some have already done. If that were to occur, the net number of respirators being made available to the United States would actually decrease. that is the opposite of what we and the Administration, on behalf of the American people, both seek."

It goes without saying that Trump's incompetence during the Coronavirus pandemic has been disastrous and he's only making it worst by banning the export of those products.

"Dakota Access Pipeline Terrorism Charges"

In no way am I a pacifist to those of us dividing our nation.

Sure, there are times when I have to choose my battles but not initially.

The Dakota Access Pipeline protest has been an ongoing battle since the Obama administration. 

Since then, it's been a tug-of-war between protesters and big oil with changing administrations adjusting the leverage for one side or the other. 

The Trump administration obviously leveraged the fossil fuel industry.

But he also…

It doesn't take much to see how often Trump loyalists in Congress like to promote their death wish politics.

They're not shy about this at all since they already do it in public.

Think about how often the Republican party calls itself pro-life on abortion issues.

Their hypocrisy on this is also obvious when they glaze over the…

Trump's Year of Voter Fraud

As of this writing, the race for the White House has tightened-up between Biden and Trump.

While it might not make a difference to some that thousands of ballots have been lost against the millions of put in, we've already seen a great surge of voter suppression, voter intimidation, and ballot tampering during this election year alone.

Thanks to President Trump encouraging his loyal supporters to sabotage the democratic process, we've had the theft of …
