With nearly one-third of all Americans under a state of emergency, an out-of-touch Donald Trump, family, and campaign staffers threw an extravagant, over-the-top celebration, complete with conga line, at Mar-a-Lago while millions of Americans and global markets panic amid a growing coronavirus crisis.

“In a true split-screen moment, watching Donald Trump party it up while markets tank and people panic perfectly captures just how self-absorbed and out-of-touch Trump is with reality,” said American Bridge Spokesperson Kyle Morse. “By continuing to hold back door meetings with donors and his crony friends, Donald Trump is proving that his priorities do not line up with our nation’s, and he’s got the record to prove it. Trump has botched the coronavirus response every step of the way – tapping a science denier to lead the effort, minimizing the threat, spreading misinformation, and failing to deliver promised testing kits. We simply cannot trust Donald Trump or the seemingly endless stream of lies from his Twitter account, especially during a time of crisis. We need real leadership, and it’s clear Donald Trump is not up to the job.”
