According to Donald Trump Jr., it’s “great news” that the United States only has 45,000 deaths and counting as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Wednesday morning, Junior tweeted that the U.S. “has one of the lowest coronavirus mortality rates in the world,” citing Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force, proving that he’s just as tone-deaf as his father:
Great news that you likely won’t hear about, a tribute to the Task Force’s efforts along side our incredible Drs, nurses, & first responders on the front lines!

There are 819,000 cases of COVID-19 in this country, with 45,356 (and counting) dead, but we’re supposed to have a ticker-tape parade down Fifth Avenue in New York and pat ourselves on the back? It’d be nice to say Don Jr. is just kidding, but he truly believes that this administration has accomplished something.
Withing minutes of Junior’s posting, others on social media reminded him how utterly clueless he is:
46,000+ dead Americans. Nothing to celebrate.

So 45,000 deaths is ‘good news’ and daddy’s lying, incompetence, rallies, and golf trips were justified. pic.twitter.com/AOxYViFjlk

Dr scarf lady lost all credibility! Kind of like you did when you were born!

This is a bold faced lie. Focus Jr on the truth. Go volunteer at a hospital so you can finally see reality.

News the Trumps don’t want people to hear. The US has the most coronavirus deaths in the world by a large margin.
It didn’t need to be this way.

Tell that to the relatives of the 46,000+ that have died from this virus.

There is, however, something even more terrifying to consider than this abysmal tweet from Don Jr.: His daddy will probably insist that we have a Tribute to Trump parade on July 4 and infect even more Americans.
