Trump’s refusal to accept reality is troubling. Not simply because the President seems unable to competently perform his administrative duties (he has spent much of the week Tweeting conspiracy theories and firing bureaucrats), but Trump is riling up his base into believing that an actual injustice has been done.
So, why is the United States ignoring the second wave? There are more infections in the United States than any other nation, and yet, the Trump Administration pretends that the global pandemic is over. Spoiler: the global pandemic is not over. Not by a long shot. Trust the rest of the world that Covid-19 is still a danger.
