"America First" in terms of coronavirus. This is the sad observation made by Cartooning for Peace. And for good reason: for two consecutive days, Tuesday April 7 and Wednesday April 8, the United States recorded nearly 2,000 deaths in 24 hours, the worst daily reports in the world since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Cartooning for Peace deplores the management of US President Donald Trump.

"At the end of March, the American president foresaw a return to normalcy at Easter by declaring 'Wouldn't it be great to have all the churches full?' The American president will have to resolve to remain confined to the White House for Easter, "recalls the editorial in Cartooning for Peace. "Whoever minimized the danger of the virus first and thought that the United States would be spared is faced with one observation: second country most affected by Covid-19 after Italy, the United States deplores today nearly 15,000 dead with more than 430,000 confirmed cases. "

"Very criticized in his management of the crisis by 55% of Americans according to a recent survey, Trump is now castigating the World Health Organization for the same reasons. The hospital that laughs at charity?", Wonders Cartooning for Peace.
