United States (US) President Donald Trump, facing an election in less than three-months, has summed up the Republic's gruesome death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic as an apathetic: "It is what it is".
Trump's blunt description of the demise of so many American lives to the deadly and still persisting pesky pathogen, came in an interview with Axios on HBO, earlier this week, as he falsely contended that the Novel Coronavirus within American communities was "under control as much as you can control it."
At the time of writing, based upon data from Johns Hopkins University, worldwide COVID-19 infections stood at 19,183,661 cases and 716,735 deaths. In the US, where Trump alleges the virus is under control, infections have soared above 4.9 million cases, while, sadly, deaths have topped 160,000 of "its is what it is" Americans.
Trump's non-empathetic expressions to Americans, who have lost loved ones to COVID-19 - spouses, sons, daughters, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, partners, mates, friends, neighbors and associates, are certainly indicative of his character - the character, which desires political power but with little sincere care for all.
Trump's "it is what it is" response to gut tearing death and sorrow over COVID-19 victims should be answered by all the votes being counted in the ballot for President of the United States, November 03, 2020.
