New proof reveals in startling detail how Trump’s virus failure has killed thousands of Americans.
The chart promoted by Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman shows how deaths from the coronavirus accelerated in America, right as the rest of the world began to handle the problem.

Trump and his fellow Republicans have tried to blame the virus fallout on China as over 120,000 Americans have died.
But Trump mishandled the outbreak from the beginning and continues to deny reality as thousands of Americans lose their lives.
