CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/JOBS/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Today, we learned that another 4.4 million people filed new unemployment claims last week, bringing the total number of Americans filing new unemployment claims to 26 million since this crisis started, with many more feeling the direct economic impact of this pandemic.

These aren’t just overwhelming numbers or aggregate statistics — every one is a life thrown into uncertainty, a family unable to make ends meet, a community worried about how it will recover. Every worker left wondering when they will next see a paycheck is part of this American crisis — and Donald Trump isn’t doing enough for them.”
