Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic that she called “incredible and the right response in this critical time.”
She made the declaration on Twitter in response to news that the Trump administration was suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, and forcing firms to produce medical supplies under the Defense Production Act.
Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time. 👏🏽 https://t.co/MUzGkAxNaO

Trump has responded with emergency measures that some conservatives have criticized as being socialist, intervening in the marketplace to help Americans while the economy is at a standstill. The administration hopes to return to economic normalcy as soon as possible.
“We all know it’s going to be a horrible second quarter, but [the President] feels we’ll get through this and the market will snap back,” the senior administration official said to CNN. “Doesn’t matter the time of day he gets out and addresses the country. The market’s gonna do what the market’s gonna do.”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, usually a hardcore critic of the Trump administration, had to tip his cap to the President for his handling of the crisis.
“His team is on it. They’ve been responsive. … I want to say thank you,” Cuomo told reporters on Tuesday.
President Trump is taking measures to combat a crisis that transcends party lines, believing he is a “wartime president” out to defeat an “invisible enemy.”
“Every generation of Americans has been called to make shared sacrifices for the good of the nation,” Trump said at a recent White House briefing.
“Now it’s our time,” Trump added, referencing how Americans came together to protect freedom during World War II. “We must sacrifice together, because we are all in this together, and we will come through together.”
Trump signed a coronavirus pandemic aid package on Wednesday evening that expands benefits for those who have been economically harmed by the crisis. He is working with House and Senate leaders to secure more aid for the American people in the days to come.
“We are crafting bold and significant legislation to meet this crisis head-on and strengthen our nation,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“My message is to all Americans, but to those Americans going through a lot: We love them, we’re with them, and we will not let them down. Thank you all very much,” Trump said on Wednesday.
Trump is showing the kind of leader that he is under the pressure of the coronavirus pandemic, and even liberals are being forced to give him credit as a result.
Drug Overdose Deaths Spike Throughout U.S. as COVID-19 Lockdowns Cause Surge in Hopelessness, Despair
Blood is on the hands of the government officials instituting lockdown policies.
An analysis from the White House has shown that drug overdose deaths are spiking as the coronavirus pandemic lingers on, most likely due to lockdown policies that are causing a surge in hopelessness and despair.
Drug policy experts in the Trump administration have found a 11.4 percent in fatalities in 2020 over 2019. This is particularly shocking considering that the opiate crisis in America is still under way, and it is now worse than ever due to coronavirus panic.
“The pandemic has caused my level of concern to go up,” White House drug czar Jim Carroll said to POLITICO in an interview.
The problem has exacerbated considerably because a billion-dollar federal research program to discover new ways to treat addiction has been shelved because of the coronavirus pandemic. The human cost of the pandemic is immeasurable, and the negative ramifications will likely be felt for generations.
“The concerns we have are related to the big challenges people are facing right now with Covid: isolation and uncertainty resulting in very high levels of stress,” Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute for Drug Abuse, told POLITICO.
Some far-left public officials have made the situation even worse by subsidizing alcohol and drugs for destitute individuals during the lockdown.
Big League Politics reported on how dope was provided for homeless people by San Francisco authorities while they were holed up under quarantine:
The city of San Francisco, Calif. is giving out free alcohol and drugs to its homeless population that has been holed up in hotels during quarantine.
The city has already given booze, cigarettes, or marijuana to 43 homeless individuals in an attempt to reward them for staying put in the hotels. This is meant to keep them from wandering off and spreading coronavirus throughout the city.
San Francisco Department of Health spokeswoman Jenna Lane said: “They’re doing San Francisco a great service by staying inside. We’re saying, ‘We’re doing what we can to support you staying inside and not have to go out and get these things.’ ”
The city’s health department claimed in a tweet that this is a “harm reduction based practice” not funded by the taxpayer. However, they did not provide any documentation showing how this program is being privately funded in the tweet.
They claim that subsidizing substance abuse for the homeless helps “guests successfully complete isolation and quarantine and have significant individual and public health benefits in the COVID-19 pandemic.”
San Francisco has opened up hotels to house 270 homeless individuals who have either tested positive for coronavirus or been determined prone to infection. City officials are using drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as enticement tools to get the homeless to properly quarantine.
Dr. Grant Colfax, who works as the health director for the city, explained at a Wednesday press conference that the policy utilizes “the best evidence to help people manage their addictions.”
“In some cases, this will include helping them manage their alcohol and nicotine use so they can stay safe and in-place as much as possible to help their communities and help themselves,” Colfax said.
The blood is on the hands of political leaders in both major parties for how they have raped the Constitution throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
