Trump Jr says Covid deaths are down to 'almost nothing' on the day 1,000 people die | The Independent |

Donald Trump Jr has claimed that the US death rate for Covid-19 is down to "almost nothing", speaking on a day in which almost 1,000 people died.

The president's son, 42, appeared on Fox News and told host Laura Ingraham that people worried about Covid were "morons".  He said: "These people are truly morons," referencing Sanjay Gupta, CNN's health correspondent, who told people they should not be attending Mr Trump's mass rallies.

"I went through the CDC data, because I kept hearing about new infections, but I was like, `Why aren't they talking about this?' " he said. The president's son cited CDC data for Covid deaths without realising that it was provisional and constantly being updated.

Noting that at the same time White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has now admitted that the administration has no plans to "control" the spread of the virus.

It is starkly apparent both the American global domination and the Era of European Expansion are ending.  Over the next 50 years or so we'll see an historic switch as a non-European country becomes the dominate global power.
