This week, the anti-Trump conservative group known as The Lincoln Project released a hard-hitting new video ad in which they characterize the devastating U.S. COVID-19 death toll as “Trump’s wall.” As the organization has outlined in a previous video, the space that the over 330,000 dead Americans could occupy is startlingly huge, mirroring Trump’s effort to fill the U.S.-Mexico border with a wall. In reality, Trump’s mark on American and world history will include his gross mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has helped spark untold suffering across the United States.

Check out the new video from The Lincoln Project below:

Throughout recent weeks, Trump has largely prioritized his delusional, anti-democratic fight against the election results, even as COVID-19 has continued to spread sometimes uncontrolled in the United States. The U.S. federal government recently approved two vaccines to fight the pandemic, and amidst concerns about the slower-than-needed rate of the distribution of those vaccines, Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to blame the states for the problems. “Get moving!” he tweeted, although one might expect a remotely levelheaded president of the United States to take at least some additional level of obvious responsibility for the fight against the pandemic across the country. Instead, Trump is tweeting this dismissive belligerence, seemingly trying to distance himself from the situation.

Trump’s crusade against the election outcome has gone so off the rails that, recently, he posted a tweet insinuating that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s brother’s China connections imply corruption on the family’s part. In reality, Raffensperger — a Republican who leads election administration in Georgia, where Trump falsely claims that systematic fraud swung the state to Biden — does not have a brother. Trump could have uncovered this information with a very basic level of fact-checking — the China-connected individual to whom he is referring is not related to Brad. (UPDATE: The Georgia Secretary of State apparently does actually have a brother — but the China-connected individual to whom the president referred, who shares a last name, is not that brother.)

In contrast to Trump’s ignorant so-called leadership, President-elect Joe Biden has made his intent to meaningfully confront the pandemic abundantly clear. On Tuesday, Biden pledged to launch a “much more aggressive effort, with more federal involvement and leadership, to get things back on track” in the vaccine distribution effort.
