Donald Trump Tells Americans to go back to work, people also die in car accidents.

Trump said that sending people back to work during the coronavirus epidemic is no big deal because people also die from the flu and car accidents.

Trump said during a Fox News virtual town hall, “Look, we lose thousands, I brought some numbers here. We lose thousands and thousands of people a year to the flu. We don’t turn the country off. I mean every year, now when I heard the number, 37,000 people a year, can you believe that? This year we’re having a bad flu season, but we lose thousands of people a year to the flu. We never turned the country off. We lose much more than that to automobile accidents. We didn’t call up the automobile companies and say stop making cars. We don’t want any cars anymore. We have to get back to work.”

The coronavirus is exponentially more deadly than the flu, but there is no vaccine or cure. The coronavirus also spreads more easily than the flu. The country responded to the rise in auto accident fatalities with seat belt laws and other safety measures.

Trump is suggesting that the coronavirus is no big deal, some people are going to die, so that shouldn’t stop the country from getting back to work.

The big thing to remember is that Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to lift the state restrictions. He can talk about reopening the economy, but there is nothing that he can do to force the states to lift the public health restrictions.

Trump is jeopardizing American lives because he is worried about his reelection campaign. The recession is coming no matter what Trump says, but the rhetoric that the president is spreading is dangerous and will get people killed.

‘Don’t Embrace Nonsense’ this is how Black Friday started-julius malema

Julius Sello Malema, the leader of Economic Freedom Fighters, an opposition political party in South Africa has dissuaded Africans from taking part in “Black Friday” saying that it started as an auction to sell blacks.

#Black Friday was an auction of selling black slaves after a thanksgiving half Price

Meanwhile, The Telegraph notes that the term “Black Friday” was actually first associated with a financial crisis, not sales shopping as is the case these days. The publication added:

Two Wall Street financiers Jim Fisk and Jay Gould, together bought a significant amount of US gold in the hope of the overall price soaring and in turn being able to sell it for huge profits.

On Friday, September 24 1869, in what became referred to as “Black Friday”, the US gold market crashed and Fisk and Gould’s actions left Wall Street barons bankrupt.

It was not until later years that the post-Thanksgiving period became associated with the name.

The publication acknowledges that there is a theory suggesting that Southern plantation owners could buy slaves at a discounted price following Thanksgiving in the 1800s. This could be the theory which Malema believes to be the origins of Black Friday.

Meanwhile, Wikipedia observes that the earliest evidence of the phrase Black Fridayapplied to the day after Thanksgiving in a shopping context suggests that the term originated in Philadelphia, where it was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving.
