    Trump is a very influential person to his supporters, so when he mocks the officials, tries to discredit Fauci and others who are experts in the field of epidemiology by deliberately taking them out of context, his hot box joyride during his infectious stage, as well as setting a precedent where he blatantly refuses to follow all aspects of CDC protocol from wearing masks to social distancing, etc, during his rallies to white house events, etc, then yes, he can be held responsible simply because of the perceived power the supporters who follow his example and have of him. Trump has deliberately flouted science, social distancing and made a mockery of masks, refusing to wear a mask in situations where it was deemed necessary by hospital authorities and medical consultants. We are on our second White-house outbreak, will this administration ever learn?
    During the onset of COVID-19 Trump repeatedly lied to the American people about the severity of the virus, repeatedly thumbing his nose in the face of science with ridiculous pseudoscience claims that could potentially endanger others, over 200,000 American citizens are now dead with the numbers climbing due to his inaction.
    Statistics were not on Trumps side as he openly encouraged people to attend rallies without social distancing and other protective measures in place. He's now tested positive with the all too real possibility that prior to diagnosis, of having spread the virus to countless others through his selfishness and willful ignorance of scientific evidence, he continues to behave in a way that encourages the transmission of the Covid-19 virus.
    Trump has brought this upon himself and he only has himself to blame due to his own arrogance and hubris. It's not the past lies that is the issue, but the fact is; in the future everything Trump states will be suspect and questioned just like the words of Conley, his supposed "Doctor", there is nothing transparent about that administration, the trust has long been destroyed and Pence helped drive the nail in the coffin of his Vice Presidential term.
    When the interim president continues ad nauseam with passive-aggressive misogynistic sentiments, ad hominem attacks, abject condescension, thinly veiled racism, the use of pseudoscience, conspiracy theories and weak arguments based on unfounded assumptions catering to confirmation biases, this shows a desperate grasp to remain relevant while having nothing new to contribute to the nation as a whole.
    Biden's idea to eliminate fossil fuels WILL NOT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT, this takes many many years, at least several presidential terms to get a healthy start on this! Proper infrastructure must be in place to facilitate the changeover, the right is pandering to fear, it's horrible to take advantage of a person's fear for their jobs and well being. The relationships that Biden has forged are necessary to start the process. Let's support the changeover from fossil fuels, there will be a time when out resources will start to run out and when that happens we will be prepared. Together across party lines we can achieve great things together. Let's end the division and be a nation that is strong together once again. . . . .
    Is another four years of chaos, lies and deception from the TRUMP/PENCE Administration what we deserve as American Citizens? It is imperative that you get out and vote BLUE, America cannot tolerate another four years of racism, civil unrest, science denial and blatant dishonesty. Do want to doubt what our president is telling us for another for years? No we don't, please VOTE BLUE!

    ~~~~~Please elect Biden and Harris to repair the damage done to our global reputation!

    For 20 years I lived in the northern and western suburbs of Chicago. Taking a day driving trip to Wisconsin was a favorite of mine. Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee downtown shopoing center, Paddock Lake, Lake Geneva. Good memories. Vote Blue for all your fellow Wisconites and for those of us who have good memories of Wisconsin.

    Don’t trust the polls. People lie on polls. VOTE. We need to get our country and our lives back. We need to get rid of the virus. We need FOR EVERYONE TO WEAR MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING. Please VOTE BLUE. Stay safe and stay well. Thanks. Greetings from a former republican, senior citizen in Texas. I voted a straight BLUE BALLOT. I hope that others will follow and vote BLUE.

    How can anyone be undecided? Seriously? Trump has failed us. I would vote for anyone but him. Biden wasn't my choice. But he's the only one who can get trump out. And that's all that matters right now. After trump's gone, then we can start figuring out the rest

    I look back at Trump's response to Puerto Rico during the hurricanes, he was so obstinate he did not even understand what an American territory meant as far as our responsibilities, the same with his followers, they were blind to how he treated people and started blaming Puerto Rico for being corrupt! Now that the fire is in their backyard they are pulling the same card with what they deem as Democratic cities, even though Red states such as Florida and Texas experienced the same riots! I wonder if after all the lies if they'll understand why this nation will not back Trump….

    Don't forget to blame every politician in the past years for the following deaths caused by government failure to take action. In addition, we have also lost more black lives at abortion clinics than what any lynching in history.

    Trump wants to destroy our democracy. We will never allow it, because when there is no democracy in the United States, the United States experiences internal division. It is our democracy that holds us together. We must not allow this merchant to do any more damage to this country. November 3 is a very, very important day for the United States.🇺🇸🇺🇸
