The Lincoln Project is a group of Republican strategists and former campaign officials united in their opposition to Donald Trump and what he’s doing to the party they once believed in. Their political ads have been on point, calling Trump out for his incompetence, his lies, and his failures as president.

On Tuesday, The Lincoln Project released another political ad, this one pointing out what has been lost to so many Americans because of Trump’s inept response to the pandemic caused by COVID-19. 150,000 people have lost their lives, the equivalent of 50 September 11, 2001s, but all of us have been impacted in one way or another by this virus, a virus Trump could have contained with an earlier, more organized, more transparent, and more competent response.
‘These are the memories COVID took from us. A child’ birthday. Time spent with friends. A first kiss. Or the big day. A homecoming game on a cool fall evening. A first day at college, or a proud graduation. Dreams of starting a business, and building a legacy. Lifting our hearts in prayer and sharing our faith in God together. The blessing of a peaceful passing of an elderly parent, surrounded by family.
‘COVID has robbed America of so much. None of this had to happen. We have suffered needlessly because Trump is a fool, a liar, and a failure. Most countries stopped it but Trump refused. It’s Trump’s virus now, and before it’s over, a million of us could die. What we’ve lost reminds us what’s at stake in November. It truly is America or Trump.’
Twitter responded in full force, listing all of the memories and special moments taken from them by COVID-19. Some were sad and some were just completely heart-wrenching. Read some of their comments below:
