Donald Trump Tweets That Despite 220,000 Deaths, and 1,000 a Day, “Topic Will Change” on November 4th


This morning, Donald Trump’s tweeting away. He claims that despite 220,000 deaths, and a continuing tally of 1,000 deaths a day, on November 4th “the topic will change.”

I have personally lost several friends to COVID. My city is in suspended animation and businesses are destroyed because of COVID. The mounting losses now are in the Midwest and red states, where Trump support lies. Can the voters there look at a Tweet like this and possibly agree that the “topic will change” on November 4th?
