This week, the number of people in the US who have died of the tweeted more than 490 times since Wednesday, Nov. 4. Only 19 of these tweets have been about COVID-19, and most of those are to claim that “vaccines are coming fast,” following promising news about the vaccines made by one a minute — often alone in hospital rooms without their families — not a single one of Trump's postelection tweets has mentioned Americans who have died of COVID. This week, when his COVID-19 task force presented its first press briefing in months, Trump didn’t bother to show up.

To illustrate the staggering difference between what is on Trump's mind and what is happening to his own citizens, here’s a selection of what Trump was tweeting on the same day as individual Americans were tweeting about loved ones who had just died of COVID-19.

My grandma has died from Covid today. I pray she’s in a better place along with my grandpa. I also want to say that I know it’s tempting to visit your family...but don’t. Don’t put them at risk, don’t do that to them. You’ll save a life, trust me.

THE OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTING ROOMS. I WON THE ELECTION, GOT 71,000,000 LEGAL VOTES. BAD THINGS HAPPENED WHICH OUR OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE. NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WERE SENT TO PEOPLE WHO NEVER ASKED FOR THEM!

Today I buried my grandma after her body could no longer fight the damage COVID did to her. & I can’t help but think that things would be different had we had a president that truly cared about us. This win feels personal—to all of us that know what this loss feels like.

Since when does the Lamestream Media call who our next president will be? We have all learned a lot in the last two weeks!

In due time COVID will impact everyone. My cousin died from it yesterday. She was a retired nun with the Sisters of BVM. She had been a nurse through her service to nuns before she retired. #WearAMaskSaveALife #WearAMaskPlease #COVID

The Consent Decree signed by the Georgia Secretary of State, with the approval of Governor @BrianKempGA, at the urging of @staceyabrams, makes it impossible to check & match signatures on ballots and envelopes, etc. They knew they were going to cheat. Must expose real signatures!

Many of the court cases being filed all over the Country are not ours, but rather those of people that have seen horrible abuses. Our big cases showing the unconstitutionality of the 2020 Election, & the outrage of things that were done to change the outcome, will soon be filed!

My grandpa died of covid today. They thought he was getting better and were talking about rehab and then he crashed. He didn’t wear a mask or take precautions and now my grandma is alone. One of 1.32 million people. Wear your mask and stay 数字货币合约交易是什么_数字货币基金有home.

Why does the Fake News Media continuously assume that Joe Biden will ascend to the Presidency, not even allowing our side to show, which we are just getting ready to do, how badly shattered and violated our great Constitution has been in the 2020 Election. It was attacked,..

My brother, David Franklin Campbell, 60, of Sebring, Florida, went to be with the Lord at 2:09 p.m. (ET) today. When you read the number of people who died today of COVID in Florida, or nationwide, think of Dave. He was NOT a number. He was my brother. I will miss him every day.

The rate of rejected Mail-In Ballots is 30 X’s lower in Pennsylvania this year than it was in 2016. This is why they kept our poll watchers and observers out of the “SACRED” vote counting rooms! https://t.co/QPlzfimbd4

Here’s what I don’t want for you: to attend the funeral of a loved one who died from COVID. Today, we buried my sweet Gma B who’s been isolated since March. 5 members of our immediate family couldn’t even attend due to C19. For the love of God, the least we can do is wear a mask.

The Great State of Michigan, with votes being far greater than the number of people who voted, cannot certify the election. The Democrats cheated big time, and got caught. A Republican WIN!
