Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

If you listen to the Governor’s and Lt. Governor’s of Texas and Florida, you get a biased political view of the severity of the COVID-19 virus.

These officials have made many wrong decisions concerning this pandemic, especially opening their states too early.

Now after more of our fellow Americans have died and even more are getting infected at an alarming rate, they are finally telling us to wear masks. Plus, they are not taking responsibility for their actions.

A Houston family lost their Mother and Father a few days ago from COVID-19. How heartbreaking is that? This may have been prevented if the health of our nation is the top priority instead of the economy and trying to get re-elected.

Get the facts about this virus from a trusted source. A source that doesn’t have a political agenda!

For many people loyalty to Donald Trump is more important than protecting the lives of our family, friends and neighbors.

Donald Trump is the blame for every Covid-19 death in America. Trump has no response plan other than to down-play the virus, attack the medical experts, blame others and let people die.

Republican governors are the blame for the suffering and deaths caused by opening the economy too soon at the pleasure of Donald Trump.

Things won’t get better in America until we find the courage to say “Trump is the blame.”

Let me guess, Trump is also to blame for all those nursing home deaths in New York and not Cuomo, right?
