With the election campaign nearing an end, the 45th President of the United States is back to his old ways. On his Friday’s Waterford Township, Michigan rally, he blatantly blasted new rhetoric to people, specifically Kamala Harris and doctors. Let’s go over each claim one by one.
First, POTUS exclaimed that Kamala Harris, a vice presidential candidate, can’t even pronounce her name correctly. He also uttered that the vice president hopeful overreacts when people mispronounce her name, saying she “gets very upset.”
He added that “she can’t pronounce it right” in his speech. Trump again repeated the claim in his Green Bay, Wisconsin rally Friday afternoon, saying, “she doesn’t say it right.”
POTUS and his allies had a hard time scrambling to a good strategy on attacking Kamala Harris. His side eventually called her a “radical leftist” because of joining Joe Biden as his vice president in August. He also called her “horrible” and nasty,” while claiming that she will seize the presidency when Biden wins the election.
Second, Trump proclaims that U.S. doctors distort the number of COVID-19 deaths. He added that it’s because they get “$2,000 more” when they declare Covid-19 as the cause of death.
“You know, our doctors get more money if someone dies from COVID, you know that right.”President Donald Trump
He also claimed that U.S. doctors always jump to the conclusion that their patients have COVID-19, which received a roar of laughter from his supporters.
“When in doubt, choose Covid,”President Trump
The statement was met with resistance. American College of Emergency Physicians said in a statement that it is demeaning and doctors are “under unprecedented financial strain.”
Barack Obama also defended U.S. doctors last Saturday when campaigning with Joe Biden in Michigan. He declared that Trump’s envious of the attention COVID-19 is getting.
“He [doesn’t] understand… that somebody would risk their lives to save others without trying to make a buck.”Former President Barack Obama
It is not a positive statement, especially from a person placed in the country’s highest authority. It would make people uninterested in approaching a doctor or even visit a hospital if they’re experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
Trump’s not new to this insult politics. His 2016 election was built on slanderous and offensive statements directed to his presidential competitors. During the 2016 election campaign, He nicknamed Hillary Clinton “Heartless Hillary” and “Crooked Hillary.”
Notably, he jabbed some baseless remarks to Dr. Anthony Fauci and CNN mid-October. In his October 19 campaign rally, POTUS said that CNN “are dumb bastards” because they only cover COVID-19 related news. He also labeled Dr. Fauci, one of the most trusted and recognized infectious disease experts, as a “disaster.”
Summary: Nearing the end of the election campaign period, Trump makes another set of baseless accusations. He has targeted Kamala Harris and U.S. doctors and made false statements during his Michigan rally last Friday.
