    This article does not indicate that he as much as insinuates that he is an expert.

    He's simply speaking his mind like millions of us are, also, about this possible-pandemic.

    The problem is his mind is essentially empty of any deep thought, and he is the pretend president to boot.

    When did Trump become a medical expert?

    He also doesn't know what he is talking about when he speaks his mind!

    From PolitiFact:

    "Are new health care plans approved by Donald Trump better than Obamacare?
    In last week's State of the Union address, President Donald Trump cited the high cost of health insurance for people who buy coverage through the Affordable Care Act. "I moved quickly to provide affordable alternatives. Our new plans are up to 60% less expensive and better," Trump said. White House spokesperson Adam Kennedy told us that the president was talking about short-term, limited-duration plans.

    Are they really less expensive and better? We rated this claim Mostly False.

    First, they're not new. They've been around for decades and are generally considered a stopgap solution for people between jobs or attending school. They provide some protections, usually paying a percentage of hospital and doctor bills after the policyholder meets a deductible. But they’ve always been a bit controversial.

    Unlike the ACA plans now available, short-term plans can bar people with pre-existing conditions. They also offer fewer benefits. So, for example, they don’t have to cover prescription drugs, or mental health services or substance abuse treatment — and many don’t. They can set annual or lifetime caps on benefits. Almost all exclude maternity care.

    The Obama administration restricted these policies, which still cannot be sold on the ACA marketplaces and do not qualify for subsidies, to a maximum coverage period of 90 days. The Trump administration reversed that time-limit restriction in 2018 and built on it by allowing insurers to offer policies renewable for up to three years.

    Are these plans less expensive? Short-term plans are likely cheaper than the lowest-cost ACA plan for some consumers, but more expensive for others. For example, people who get a federal tax credit to buy ACA-compliant insurance or those who are older or less healthy would likely pay more in premiums for a traditional short-term plan, analysts said. Conversely, those without subsidies, especially younger or healthier consumers, might pay as much as 60% less than they would for the lowest-cost plan through the ACA.

    So that gets to the question, are they better?

    The consensus is that the coverage short-term plans provide is not better than that of ACA plans. But it could be better than going without insurance entirely.

    State regulation of such plans varies widely, as do the coverage benefits and limits offered by various insurers. Short-term plans have been embraced by regulators in some states, but nearly half of all states have moved to limit them to less than 12 months. Four — California, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York — have barred them altogether.

    Those states cite concerns about the effect on ACA premiums and the risk that consumers could be left hanging by the more limited nature of the short-term plans. "

    I was watching a Netflix documentary about the life story of Hitler and how he seduced the German population (and other populations around the world) and his rise to power. The documentary was made about 45 years ago but is still relevant today. The parallels between German society in the 1920s/30s and American society today are eerie. In addition trump is using many of the same propaganda techniques that Hitler used (for example Hitler introduced himself to the German people by descending from the clouds in an airplane while trump introduced himself by descending from the heights of trump tower on an escalator). First there was destruction of democracy, then destruction of republican principles, and then destruction of societal norms. This resulted in authoritarianism, sycopathy, and finally destruction of a nation.

    The problem is that many in German society knew that Hitler was dangerous but refused to speak up for either fear of reprisals or belief that Hitler would soon fail and fade into History. That approach did not end well. I refuse to be silent! I will fight America's slide into authoritarianism, white nationalism, and condoning refutation of our Constitution and the rule of law. I will speak out against trump's national propaganda machine, Faux Gnus, social media misinformation, and asinine trolls on websites like Hawaii Threads. This IS NOT a 'free speech' issue. This is a well organized attempt by a segment of the American society, as well as certain foreign governments, to destroy what our nation has come to stand for.

    Speak up people and oppose this orange menace we face today regardless of your political leanings. Silence will only hasten our decline into self-destruction and oblivion. I don't own guns, I prefer to avoid confrontation. and I want to live a comfortable life in retirement, but I will fight what is happening in the United States today to my death.,

    If Trump has half a brain, he would be dangerous. He has half a brain, enough to be petty.

    Trump keeps doubling down on his wrong decisions. He didn't worry about the impeachment trial with a stacked deck of a Republican Senate.

    This is frustrating because Trump is going to get re-elected.
