With a thousand Americans currently dying every day from COVID-19 one would think the president of the United States would be busy working with his administration to find a way to curve these numbers and keep Americans safe. One would think that a president would be burning the midnight oil doing all he can to ensure that a stimulus package is passed to help those struggling to get by during this pandemic. The country is in the middle of a health crisis and where is Donald Trump? He’s golfing with NFL legend Brett Favre.
The White House even shared an image of Trump and Favre all smiles on the green. His round of golf with Favre was Trump’s 20th time on the green since the coronavirus became an issue for the United States.
While Trump and Favre enjoyed the round of golf and sunshine the coronavirus crisis continued to worsen. This week the United States topped 4 million confirmed cases, which is the highest number in the world.
More than 140,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. Health experts say that the spike in cases the country is seeing was caused by states reopening too soon. Those early reopening’s erased any gains the country made against the virus. In recent weeks cases in Florida, California, and Texas have run rampant.
If you asked Donald Trump could not quote you the number of cases this week or what the increase in deaths was, but he can tell you all you need to know about his golf games.
Twitter uses responded to Favre playing golf with Trump with some pretty mean jokes.
