On Sunday, a day after Trump’s surprise victory in the Electoral College, conservatives across the political spectrum have been left wondering if Trump is more of the same, or just a dangerous demagogue who can’t be trusted.
On Monday, a bipartisan group of lawmakers from both parties released a report calling on the president to stop “the practice of politicizing public health.”
But they also called on the Trump administration to put in place measures to combat the spread of disease like the coronavirus, as well as help people stay safe from it.
The president, in particular, has been caught off guard by the emergence of coronaviruses, the most serious of which was the H1N1 pandemic that began in March and ended on July 1.
The pandemic left Americans without proper health insurance, and Trump’s policies have been criticized by both Democrats and Republicans alike.
While there is some evidence that coronavids can be spread through coughing or sneezing, the CDC’s coronaviral surveillance reports show that coronovirus outbreaks among Americans between the ages of 5 and 74 began in October 2015, which coincides with Trump’s election win.
The report, which was released Sunday by the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEIV), noted that coronas are only transmitted via coughing or inhaling airborne particles, which means people can spread them through their airways and not through the respiratory system.
The coronavid can be transmitted through close contact with the person with whom the virus is transmitted.
It can also be spread by touching the respiratory tract with clothing, utensils, and surfaces, or through direct contact with infected animals or people.
“In addition to the pandemic, the number of coronas reported to CDC has doubled in the past three years,” the report states.
“Coronavirus deaths have increased by 40 percent since the end of the pandemics.”
Trump has since claimed credit for the increase, which led to the closure of several airports.
In March, he tweeted that he has “no excuse” for the virus outbreak and promised to keep it up.
“I think we’ve been very lucky.
We’re the most fortunate country in the world,” he said.
“And it’s a very scary time.”
Trump said he has asked the CDC to investigate the spread and is “proud of” its findings.
The president has also tweeted about the pandemia and has criticized his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, for her support of her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
“This is a disease that is killing a lot of people, a disease, but it is not a political disease,” Trump said during a campaign rally in South Carolina last week.
“This is not the first pandemic.
It’s not the last pandemic.”
The new report from the bipartisan Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank, said the Trump Administration should “immediately” implement measures to “fight the spread” of coronoviruses.
“Immediately put in a plan to protect our nation’s health care system, the economy, and our environment from the coronaval spread of coronvirus,” the two groups said in a joint statement.
“Provide the resources necessary to stop the spread, including by reducing unnecessary travel to the United States.”
The Trump administration has been criticized for not taking any proactive measures to address the spread.
On Friday, the White House released a statement that did not specifically address the coronoviral pandemic but said that the administration would work to ensure the safety of Americans.
“The Trump Administration will not compromise the safety and security of the American people by delaying or avoiding action on climate change,” the statement read.
“President Trump has been clear that he wants the United Nations to lead the fight against climate change, and that he will work to advance the Paris Agreement, including on the global economy and on the environment.”
The administration has also been criticized over Trump’s travel ban and his immigration policies.
During his campaign, Trump frequently criticized President Obama for his executive orders on immigration and said he would not respect a federal judge who temporarily blocked his executive order on immigration.
Trump also said in November that he would work on a border wall to protect the country from illegal immigrants.
