President Trump’s decisive action has helped save American lives.

The United States has a lower excess mortality rate than Europe, including many European countries, such as: the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Spain, and others.

The United States has among the lowest case fatality rates of any major country.

According to the best estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 99.997 percent of individuals aged 19 and younger who contract coronavirus make a full recovery, 99.98 percent of those aged 20 to 49 make a full recovery, and 99.5 percent aged 50 to 69 fully recover.

President Trump has deployed point of care testing equipment, millions of rapid tests, and critical PPE to nursing homes to help protect our seniors.

The Administration also put in place safety measures like visitation restrictions, mandated staff testing, and required reporting of cases at certain senior facilities.

The Trump Administration mobilized extra beds and personnel to help prevent hospital overcrowding and has deployed medical supplies to aid healthcare workers on the frontlines.

Children and young adults are at extremely low-risk of serious illness from coronavirus.

Only 0.2 percent of all coronavirus deaths are in those under 25 years old.

Of nearly 20,000 total deaths this year in children under 15 years old from any cause, only 0.4 percent involved coronavirus.

Of 43,680 total deaths this year in those under 25 years old, only 1 percent involved coronavirus.

On the other hand, lockdowns fail to eliminate the virus and are causing irreparable harm to families and children, especially the working class and people with limited resources.

Lockdowns have seen cancer cases and other serious illnesses not being diagnosed on time and an increase in drug overdoses and suicides.

Due to school shutdowns, children are falling behind in math, reading and other subjects, and have lost access to important support services.

The media’s fixation on case numbers ignores both the science and the progress made in fighting the virus.

So do you think Trump will save all economy or will he put the American people in distress.
