President Donald Trump is the first president to sign a disaster declaration for all 50 states, and he’s disgustedly proud of it as he demonstrated by bragging about it on Twitter.
As of Easter Sunday, the day Trump wanted to originally reopen the country, over 22,000 Americans are dead because of the coronavirus and half a million have been infected. Most states have implemented social distancing and stay-at-home orders. And over 16 million have filed for unemployment as the economy continues to lay in shambles because Trump failed to respond to the pandemic properly.
As a result, every state in the nation has now received a disaster declaration, which Trump felt the need to brag about as some sort of accomplishment.
For the first time in history there is a fully signed Presidential Disaster Declaration for all 50 States. We are winning, and will win, the war on the Invisible Enemy!

It really is sick and twisted, and Twitter users took him to the woodshed for it.
I declare that you’re a Presidential disaster in all 50 states.

YOU ARE A PRESIDENTIAL DISASTER.

You… you’re citing declaring a presidential disaster in all 50 states as an indicator of… winning…??
What the fuck?

Imagine following this sentence with “We are winning.” Utter delusion.

Yay; All 50 states are a disaster. Perfect job.

21,500 Americans are dead. You just spit on their faces, and everyone who cares about them.
Thousands are dying each day. Your tiny hands are covered in blood.

You are indeed a disaster and should fully sign your resignation. Actually we’d accept it even half signed, with your initials, in crayon. #TrumpGenocide

For the first time in history there is a fully signed Presidential Disaster Declaration for a Hoax?

This is not something to be proud of. Our country is hurting right now and all Trump can do is treat it like he’s won a prize. That’s not how a president should behave and he and everyone who supports him should be ashamed.
