The past few days the world has watched as Donald Trump’s stance on the coronavirus has gone from telling Americans the coronavirus is “bad” to ‘we are going to stop social distancing and reopen businesses by Easter.’
He is determined to “reopen America for business” even if it means hundreds of thousands of Americans die.
Late on Tuesday, a new report shined a spotlight on why Trump wants to go against the advice of public health officials and open businesses to “help the economy.” See, if things aren’t up and running soon the Trump Organization and all of its businesses will suffer great financial losses.
Now, let’s be honest here. Is anyone really surprised that Trump would choose money, especially his own money over human lives?
The Trump Organization was forced to shut down six of its top money-making businesses because of the coronavirus. The Trump family could lose millions in income.
Trump has to decide whether he will take the proper steps and protect human lives or reopen the country for business and stop his family from losing a fortune. I think it is pretty clear which path he will take.
The Trump Organization is presently being run by Trump’s oldest sons Donald Jr. and Eric. The brothers have had to close down their properties in Doral, Florida, Las Vegas, Ireland, Scotland, Bedminster, New Jersey, and Palm Beach, Florida.
According to the Washington Post, those hotels and clubs represent six of Trump’s top revenue-producing businesses and bring in an estimated $174 million per year, or $478,000 per day.
Trump’s companies have been barred from receiving any funds from the stimulus plan. So, the Trump family is left on its own to figure out its financial woes and the answer to their problems may end the lives of many Americans.
