'Un-American' Trump Ripped For Coronavirus Blue State Death Toll Boast - 2020-09-17
President Donald Trump was called out on Wednesday for bragging that the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus would be lower if one subtracted the deaths from "blue" states.
"The blue states had tremendous death rates," Trump said. "If you take the blue states out, we're at a level that I don't think anybody in the world would be at, we're really at a very low level."
Trump's boast wasn't even factually accurate; as many critics pointed out on social media, the United States would still have one of the world's worst tolls from the virus even without deaths from "blue" states.
