Trump Event Blamed for High Covid-19 Cases in Indian State

<The Gujarat Congress on Wednesday alleged that the "Namaste Trump" event, organised by the state BJP government in Gujarat, on February 24 was responsible for the spread of coronavirus in the state.

On February 24, US President Donald Trump along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi took part in a road show in Ahmedabad which was attended by thousands of people.

Mr Chavda in a video message said, "In January itself, WHO clearly said the coronavirus spreads from one person to another. It had asked all the countries to refrain from organising large gatherings. Despite such warning, "Namaste Trump" was planned for political gains and permission was also granted by the Gujarat government."

He alleged that the deadly coronavirus entered Gujarat and spread among people due to this mega event as thousands of foreigners came to Ahmedabad ahead of Donald Trump's visit.

"People were asked to stand shoulder to shoulder on the road to greet the leaders. Lakhs of people were brought to the stadium in buses. This triggered the spread of the virus. This event was not a mistake, but a criminal negligence. The "Namaste Trump" event was responsible for community transmission of the virus," Mr Chavda alleged.

"We will soon file a petition in the Gujarat High Court demanding a judicial inquiry in it by an SIT comprising field experts as its members. We will demand action against the government, GCA and the "Trump Abhivadan Samiti" (committee formed to organise the event) through this petition," he added.>

1. I hope it was worth it to sell millions of dosed of HQC

to trump.

I'm betting that trump personally bought the and resold to the government at a heft markup. Which is why he has been hawking them on his daily infomercial.

3. I don't know the terms of it but I do believe the deal was made during this Trip

And that's why he is pushing it so hard and going so far as to claim he has been taking it.

5. Spreading Covid 19 far and wide,..

... so that astounding obscene profits can be made off the victims of the pandemic.

It is either of two choices,

1) Gulp down our pill that costs you a fortune.

2) or Drop dead.

9. I believe he'd indulge his craving for attention and adulation

no matter how many millions died as a result. His disordered brain would just lie and deny, intermittently claiming the holocaust as a "badge of honor," and no one would believe it more than him.

"Just a rude person" I am.

12. Sure. Of course, responsibility isn't a solid thing to be

apportioned, 80% here, 20% there. No matter how enormous India's RW government's is, it doesn't diminish Trump's by even one little death.

And all those who didn't vote to keep this depraved whackjob from being elected president of the United States bear their own personal, undivided responsibility, horribly real even if diminished by helplessness to affect what they started.

Heard Trump's been pushing his advisers every day for when he can resume rallies, not if. Cell phone tracking shows RW shutdown protesters came from all over their states, often hundreds of miles, so it seems probable those rallies will be filled with people coming from all over -- and then returning home.

And Trump is more than just eager to get to personally creating explosions of new outbreaks here. Needing his adulation fixes and believing that rallies can somehow keep him in office, he's desperate to.

11. Ok, so the virus was created by Putin and delivered by his puppet?

Or trump is just 'covid Mary' -- the perfect asymptomatic carrier.
