Retired Lt. General Russel Honore was assigned to rescue the city of New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. He assigned his most experienced officers (not his unqualified rich friends and relatives) to assess the problems, divide the workload and commandeer whatever equipment they need to complete the job.

General Honore has three suggestions for TRUMP; Put one person in charge and let that person do his or her job with no interference from you. Ask all colleges and medical schools to graduate all nurses and doctors in March instead of June so they can go to work now; demand industries shut down their production line and make whatever this country needs to survive this deadly crisis.

Bill Gates suggested getting the money to the poor and middle class first. He said not to putting aside 500 billion for million-dollar companies, they can get a low cost loan by using their assets as collateral, and letting TRUMP’S treasure secretary give it out without telling us taxpayers until six months later who he gave it to.

Trump said he would oversee that the 500 billion dollars were given out in a fair and balanced way. It was just a few months ago that TRUMP was impeached for trying to bribe the President of Ukraine (“I need you to do me a favor”) with 400 million dollars of our tax money.

TRUMP owns hotels all over the world that are empty during this coronavirus crisis. Do you think TRUMP would pocket any of that money? Do you trust TRUMP?

Call, text or e-mail your U.S. Rep. and two Senators and tell them what you want!
