Three million people filed unemployment claims last week. 1.5 million unemployment claims were expected. 695,000 weekly claims was the previous record. Next week may well be worse. We have 70,000 tested cases of Coronavirus in the United States, and likely tens and tens of thousands more. 1,000 have died so far. Congress just put the United States $2 trillion more into debt to offer a short-term salve to workers and companies. We still don’t know how long this will go on. People in the United States and across the world are stuck inside their homes, and they are terrified right now about their present and their uncertain future.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, is trying to stop television stations from airing an ad comprised exclusively of the President’s own words.

This pandemic was manageable. Donald Trump failed to manage it.
