This is a twofer: Trump screws over foreigners who dare compete with Americans *and* pressures universities to put on a happy face and open classrooms this fall.
This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester. https://www.ice.gov/news/releases/sevp-modifies-temporary-exemptions-nonimmigrant-students-taking-on...
Donald Trump has harassed, abused, assaulted and denigrated women for years. And laughed about it. It's disgusting. This is our new video. It deals with some of Trump's horrible history with women and explains what needs to be done to end his abuse forever. #TrumpHatesWomen
He never cares who is hurt as long as he gets his way. See ⤵️ https://twitter.com/Teri_Kanefield/status/1280166218087845888 They want all non-Americans out. (He wants everything to open as usual, even as the virus surges. Schools closing will wreak havoc with the economy because parents, too, need to be home.)
Two comments: I see it as part of the cultural war against immigrants. Also, retaliation against schools and colleges going online, which Trump thinks is being done to hurt his chances for reelection. He wants us to pretend all is normal even as people die by the thousands. https://twitter.com/wswordsmen1/status/1280243828637794304
244 years after America declared independence from a tyrant, Trump behaved like a racist tyrant himself and accused his critics of being un-American while engaging in the most un-American behavior imaginable: Refusing to protect American lives. https://rantt.com/trump-unpresidented-week-180-russia-covid-19-july-4-racism
We jail & imprison people for conduct that stems from abuse & trauma, and then abuse and traumatize them in jail & prison instead of helping them at all. https://twitter.com/zoepulitzer/status/1279951900906082304?s=21
NEW: Trump's NLRB is considering killing a legal doctrine that has protected unions since FDR was president. The request came from the National Right to Work Committee Legal Foundation...in a union's dispute with a Trump megadonor. https://tyt.com/stories/4vZLCHuQrYE4uKagy0oyMA/dAkWUd1m1fkOUQywkERhU
My friend & former @US Labor Department Secretary @Robert Reich is right: @OSHA_DOL abandoned workers by refusing to issue an Emergency Temporary Standard for COVID-19. The Senate needs to pass @Sen. Tammy Baldwin & @Tammy Duckworth’s bill to make OSHA implement workplace safety rules for the pandemic.
Former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich says the U.S. government and OSHA are dropping the ball right now when it comes to protecting American workers. https://trib.al/iAJKGUP
Trump was so intent on having a good economy by election day that he resisted doing what was necessary to contain the virus. Now, instead of the economy roaring back, infections are roaring back. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/05/donald-trump-reopen-america-covid-19-coronavirus
