President Donald Trump is being hammered online for demanding that Americans forget that the COVID-19 pandemic ever happened after the country opens up for business.
“Once we OPEN UP OUR GREAT COUNTRY, and it will be sooner rather than later, the horror of the Invisible Enemy, except for those that sadly lost a family member or friend, must be quickly forgotten,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Our Economy will BOOM, perhaps like never before!!!” he added.
Trump’s tweet demanding that Americans “quickly” forget the mass sickness and death that have occurred for the past several weeks drew a furious reaction from many Twitter users.
Users vowed that they’d remember how Trump behaved during the pandemic as they voted him out of office in November.

When this is over we need a commission or hearings to hold accountable ALL those whose lies and inaction caused people to die. Starting with @realDonaldTrump.

It must be QUICKLY FORGOTTEN! No asking awkward questions or demanding accountability! Those who lost a loved one can be sad – but the others get BACK TO BUSINESS!
The President is a sociopath and we’re trapped with people pretending he’s not. https://t.co/qzvNN3gAd0

Of course, we’ll just forget this all.
Quickly. As long as the economy is booming. pic.twitter.com/fSvBX8Nskb

Everybody's going to lose a family member or friend, m'dude
You fell asleep at the switch, and now look what's happened.

"must be quickly forgotten" is the sweatiest tour of his innermost dread he's given since the mueller days https://t.co/WML6nUXVxz

He means it must be “quickly forgotten” before the November election, because he only cares about himself. https://t.co/SoMz6ubokK
