More Americans have died this year from the coronavirus than died from
the coronavirus last year, according to data from Johns Hopkins
“More than 353,000 COVID-19 deaths have been reported since Jan. 1,
compared with 352,000 COVID-19 deaths in the first 10 months of the
pandemic,” ABC News reported. “Over the last month, the U.S. has
reported more than 47,000 deaths.”
It’s worth noting that a lot of deaths happened during the first few
weeks of 2021 right before the Biden administration took over. A daily coronavirus death tracker from the Free Beacon indicates that more than
293,000 deaths have happened on Biden’s watch.
President Joe Biden repeatedly touted on the campaign trail that he had
a plan to end the pandemic, a key issue that he used to attack then-
President Donald Trump.
Past Biden quotes on the matter:
• October 5, 2020: “More than 200,000 Americans have died. 50,000
Americans are getting the virus every day. 1,000 a day are dying. This
is a national emergency. The President should take responsibility.”
• October 15, 2020: “We’re eight months into this pandemic, and Donald
Trump still doesn’t have a plan to get this virus under control. I do.”
• October 27, 2020: “If you give me the honor of serving as your
president, I won’t waste any time getting this virus under control and
building our nation back better.”
• October 30, 2020: “I’m not going to shut down the country. I’m not
going to shut down the economy. I’m going to shut down the virus.”
• November 1, 2020: “More than 230,000 Americans have died from COVID-
19 –– and Donald Trump has given up on trying to get the virus under
control. He may have quit on you, but I promise I never will.”
On the campaign trail last year, Biden falsely tried to blame Trump for
the death of every American who died from COVID-19. At one point, Biden
even claimed on the campaign trail that Trump “should not remain as
President of the United States of America” because of the roughly
230,000 Americans that had died from the coronavirus at that point.
Critics and even the mainstream media have slammed Biden’s
administration for their confusing and at times seemingly contradictory messaging on the pandemic.
Biden, who promised to unite the country, has resorted to blaming the unvaccinated for the pandemic continuing.
“And my message to unvaccinated Americans is this: What more is there
to wait for? What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations
free, safe, and convenient,” Biden said last month. “We’ve been
patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost
all of us.”
"Two-hundred twenty-thousand Americans dead. Anyone who's responsible
for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United
States of America. "
