To keep numbers low, Trump wanted to dump early pandemic patients at Guantanamo Bay

In an excerpt from a new book, the Washington Post shares this simple reminder of how depraved our prior US President was. The orange menace wanted to pack citizens who had contracted COVID-19 abroad into our famed inhumane off-shore military prison.

This is not shocking, as you may recall President Trump also preferred to knowingly keep "mostly Americans" packed on a highly infected cruise ship as the country watched The Grand Princess in horror.


He appeared to be indicating that, while he would prefer not to see the reported tally of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. rise as a result of allowing Grand Princess debarkations, he would leave the decision in the hands of others. Trump had put his vice president, Mike Pence, in charge of coordinating the federal coronavirus response nine days earlier.

Trump noted that the passengers in question are "mostly Americans."
