There is a spread that’s occurring as global travel increases and with the “opening-up” of economic activity. Trump’s attempt to take credit for low numbers is absurd on its face considering that between 36 -65,000 US deaths came from his inaction. Like GOP vote suppression there will be testing and testing data suppression.
Pence in April 24 radio interview said that “the worst is behind us & entire epidemic will be largely behind us by Memorial Day”
New cases of the novel coronavirus are rising faster than ever worldwide, at a rate of more than 100,000 a day over a seven-day average.
Trump is finally getting the crowd sizes he’s always bragged about.

The Trump administration gassing peaceful protestors in order to enable his photo-op is the perfect distillation of their approach to free speech:
Their speech is so important it must be compelled upon an unwilling audience.
Your speech is immaterial, subject to their whims. pic.twitter.com/H8636gZhFS

The brutal tactics police officers are using against peaceful protesters, journalists, etc are causing *white Americans* to view police in an increasingly negative light.
