Rooting Against America: Dems Fear Virus Recovery Boosts Trump’s 2020 Chances

Americans aren’t going to stand for the implications of this ridiculous position.

As our nation patiently awaits the results of our methodical reopening, and a sign as to whether or not we’ve made it through the coronavirus “eye of the storm”, the Democratic Party’s biggest fears are not health-related.

No, the Democrats are still trying to win an election in November, and it appears that they’ll take whatever help they can get – even if it means allowing Americans to suffer in order to make President Trump look bad.

As President Trump and the rest of the country grapple with an economic downturn and sky-high unemployment rates amid the coronavirus crisis, some Democrats reportedly worry that an explosive economic recovery in the fall could revive Trump’s lagging political fortunes — and boost his chance at reelection.

Politico reports that Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a Harvard professor, told a bipartisan group of policymakers last month that “We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country.”

Here’s where it gets messy.

The claims may seem counterintuitive amid the bleak economic picture right now. But it’s premised on assumptions that as lockdowns ease, a recovery could follow more quickly than after past economic crises. Since his earlier prediction, Furman has reportedly also been making the case to Democrats, including top members of presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s campaign.

“This is my big worry,” a former Obama White House official told the outlet, who said of the concern about top members of the party: “It’s high — high, high, high, high.”

This is a case of rooting against the American people in favor of political power, and something about that just won’t sit right with the nation at large.
