Under Trump, US Life Expectancy Dropped To Lowest Level Since WWII

Science shows life got shorter for Americans under Trump.

The life expectancy of Americans dropped to its lowest level since World War II, stunning new research has revealed.

“The drop spelled out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is due mainly to the COVID-19 pandemic, which health officials said is responsible for close to 74% of the overall life expectancy decline. More than 3.3 million Americans died last year, far more than any other year in U.S. history, with COVID-19 accounting for about 11% of those deaths,” the Associated Press reported.

COVID hit America in early 2020 and was initially downplayed by Donald Trump and his administration. As the virus hit and deaths skyrocketed, the administration claimed it was no worse than the flu and bungled the deployment of vital medical equipment. Even as lockdowns came into effect, Trump and his team attacked wearing masks, social distancing and other safety protocols recommended by medical experts.

The death toll from COVID-19 in the United States as a result went above 600,000 deaths and now ranks among the worst mass deaths in the entire history of the country.
