Who really knows the truth in Trump's America?

The truth is, if it comes from Trump it's not the truth.

Only 60%?  Only 60%???  I really have to adjust my opinion of the American people - 40% of them, of course.

I think ABC/Ipsos poll has disapproval of Trump's handling of pandemic at 67%.

Now that Trump has control of counting and releasing the infection and death numbers, watch them start falling in order to fulfill his prediction of a "miracle".....(provided you don't count the overflow in the hospitals and the actual number of deaths).

Good deflection - must have learned from Trump, but China isn't the topic of this seed.

Isn't that how the government does things in China?

No matter if it is or not how it's done in China. 

This in America, not China. So what does your comment have to do with anything other than trying to deflect and stir the pot?

As usual.

It is getting positively Orwellian out here today...

Ya, between directing hospitals to bypass the CDC and send patient info directly to the Administration, not allowing the CDC to testify at Congressional hearings and sending federal leos with no identifying badges that literally grab suspected protestors off the street and throw them into unmarked vans, ya, Orwellian is a good description.

If you're not concerned about any of this you may not have a pulse.

Comrade Adam:

Is not new. Have seen before - was old saying in mother Russia

“There is no pravda in Izvestia, and no izvestia in Pravda.”

There is no pravda (truth) in Izvestia (Communist newspaper), and no izvestia (news) in Pravda (the other Communist newspaper).

At least part applies -  "There is no pravda in Trump".

Of course that in not "izvestia".

Da Tovarish Adam! The Lincoln Project has excellent satirical video on Subject of Trump and Putin. (Some Russian language with English sub-titles, Nice militant Russian music as well! :-) 

Fellow Traveler - The Lincoln Project

American soldiers’ lives are in danger and Trump has done nothing to stop it. Add ‘America First’ to the laundry list of scams Trump has sold in his life. It’s clearly Trump first, Russia second, and America last.

A bit nastier than some of their other videos:

The most important political endorsement Donald Trump received in 2016 was not from your Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. And not from your Congressman Paul Ryan. And not from any of your Republican senators. or governors. No, Donald trump received the most important endorsement in 2016 from our great leader Vladimir Putin.

Russia routinely exploited a US policy of increased information sharing to target Chechen dissidents, according to three law-enforcement and intelligence officials in Europe.

The practice emerged after the Trump administration backed a policy of sharing more secret information with Russia, in hope of strengthening relations.

Sources told Insider Russia routinely sought information on its targets of choice — dissidents who fled the rule of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov. The US appears to have received little in return.

He said NATO had limited some parts of its relationship with the US because of its closeness to Russia. Specifically some worried that US officials would send them its intelligence.

The official also spoke anonymously because he lacked permission to speak publicly. He said: "I don't want to say we locked the Americans out, but we   certainly noticed the very public leak of intelligence to the Russians in 2017 .

The Trump administration is trying to block billions of dollars for states to conduct testing and contact tracing in the upcoming coronavirus relief bill, people involved in the talks said Saturday.

The administration is also trying to block billions of dollars that GOP senators want to allocate for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and billions more for the Pentagon and State Department to address the pandemic at home and abroad, the people said.

,

At the same time they push cuts in testing and CDC funds, administration officials are trying to use the spending package to fund priorities that appear not directly related to the coronavirus — including   a new FBI building , which has been a longtime priority for Trump, according to people involved.
