The U.S. Justice Department said it would investigate a rising wave of hate crimes, as Asian Americans have experienced a growing number of racially motivated attacks since former President Trump began referring to COVID-19 as a ‘China virus’
President Joe Biden on Wednesday revoked a freeze that former President Donald Trump had put on many types of visas due to the COVID-19 pandemic, saying the order did not advance U.S. interests and hurt industries and individuals alike.
A Trump-appointed federal judge indefinitely banned President Biden from enforcing a 100-day pause on deportations. In 2020, the Trump admin deported over 250,000 people — including 13,000 children — using COVID-19 to justify bypassing normal asylum procedures.
U.S. President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sought on Tuesday to turn the page on the Trump era, stressing the countries’ deep ties and pledging to work together on COVID-19 and climate change in their first bilateral meeting.
Joe Biden cited a horrific statistic to argue that President Trump has not been good for Black Americans: 1 in 1,000 Black Americans have died in the Covid-19 pandemic. The most remarkable thing about Biden’s statement? It was true. #Debates2020
200,000 dead from COVID-19. At least 145,000 of those deaths could have been prevented if President Trump had taken decisive action. He did not, and because he did not, he does not deserve a second term.
"Make no mistake, this was not just reckless behavior, this was a demonstration of a wanton disregard for human life. President Trump, now in quarantine, has become a symbol of his own failures." - @jaketapper on the President's positive Covid-19 test.
Shocking & shameful. This now deleted tweet was the reaction to President Trump testing positive for Covid-19 from @zara915 - former Obama White House staffer and Hillary Clinton’s former 2016 National Spokeswoman.
We are living through a tale of two crises—COVID-19 and racial injustice—and President Trump has been a miserable failure at handling both of them.
