    US governors have had to lead their own mitigation efforts in their respective states due to the lack of a uniform national response to the COVID-19 crisis, but now US President Donald Trump says they owe their high approval ratings to him and the “help” that the federal government has provided.

    Early Tuesday morning, Trump rage tweeted once again, claiming that the "sky-high approval" that governors are experiencing at the moment is all thanks to him.

    “Remember this, every Governor who has sky high approval on their handling of the Coronavirus, and I am happy for them all, could in no way have gotten those numbers, or had that success, without me and the Federal Governments help. From Ventilators to Testing, we made it happen!” Trump wrote shortly before 8 a.m. on Tuesday.  

    Of course, when anything goes wrong, we can expect The Donald to distance himself from all accountability. The buck doesn’t stop with him, unless he can use it to his advantage.

      COVID Chutzpah

      As the number of American fatalities from COVID-19 nears 100,000, US President Donald Trump is praising himself for doing such a great job on handling the novel coronavirus crisis. Somehow, 100,000 deaths translate to him doing great - does he know the death toll is still rising?
