It Might Be Too Late, But...

It would be great to hear prominent Dems like Jaime Harrison give a prebuttal to the 2020 election loser's appearance at the Florida klan rally on Sunday. With so much hype around the speech, few if any people are focusing on the important fact that whatever the future inmate has to say, it will be a reminder of how a majority of Americans find him repulsive. This fraud lost the election because he was incapable of speaking to the issues that face real Americans.

-His response to the COVID crisis was a complete failure.
-His concern through the economic catastrophe of 2020 was his own bottom line.
-He brought the U.S. trade deficit to an all-time high.
-He exploded the federal debt.
-He bankrupted American farmers
-He thought empathy was a sign of weakness.
-He lied with unmatchable fluency.
-He promoted debunked conspiracy theories.
-He refused a peaceful transition of power.
-He instigated the first attack on the U.S. Capitol since the War of 1812.

If a goal of the Democratic Party is to destroy "Trumpism," then let's take away his oxygen before he can even speak. Let's head him off at the pass, as they used to say in old Westerns. Let's make him irrelevant before we get to the point where we wished we had done more sooner. Chances are he will be the author of his own destruction, but let's not wait for that.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala told Reuters her top priority was to ensure the WTO does more to address the pandemic, saying members should accelerate efforts to lift export restrictions slowing trade in needed medicines and supplies.

The former Nigerian finance minister and senior World Bank executive was appointed on Monday in a consensus process and starts her new job on March 1.

“The WTO can contribute so much more to helping stop the pandemic,” Okonjo-Iweala said in an interview at her home in a suburb of Washington.
