In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 21, 2020
We will never let the great U.S. Oil & Gas Industry down. I have instructed the Secretary of Energy and Secretary of the Treasury to formulate a plan which will make funds available so that these very important companies and jobs will be secured long into the future!— Donald J.

Look at how easily the chumps fall for it.
The virus which has killed 43,588 Americans and crashed the economy has temporarily halted immigration and international travel. It has also upended Trump’s 2020 campaign so he is trying to take credit for this. It is true though that immigration will go down in the middle of a pandemic.
Note: As of February, Trump’s plan was to run on the stock market, the lowest black unemployment rate in history, a merit based immigration system which would have increased immigration and CAPITALISM, NOT SOCIALISM. He didn’t want to hear about the virus. It was going to “disappear like a miracle.”
