Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Trump seems to me to be leading a protest  ..."

I will reply in full in a bit, but this really stung me.

Trump is not leading in anything, but was carried into the presidency and White House by a group op billionairs especially Robert Mercer with Steve Bannon, Breitbarth, SLC Group from UK, subsidiary Cambridge Analytics and Zuckerberg's Facebook. Trump is a AAA Class puppet of his masters. Do think of influence Adelson, Jared Kushner and the Jewish Nation led by Netanyahu.

Numbers for April 11 in France:

Deaths in hospital:  8,951 (+353 in the last 24 hours)

Deaths in nursing homes: 4,889 since March 1st (+290 in the last 24 hours)

Total deaths (hospitals + nursing homes) since the outbreak: 13,840

6,883 patients in ICU nationwide (7004 yesterday), still decreasing for the third day in a row. "Flattening the curve" actually means that the "peak" is looking more like a plateau ("a high plateau" said a Health Ministry official).

In the UK:

Deaths in hospital: 9,875 (+917 in the last 24 hours)
No figures for care homes.

Yes, Trumpian ideas have reached the Dutch community and the National press is helping by broadcasting the idiotic speeches of Trump at the White House while downdressing the independent reporters. "You asked a nasty question ... you are from the Fake media, I win't give you an answer."

Translation: "The dry wood is cut down, perhaps a few months earlier than without a virus. Does anyone still in the prime of life have to sacrifice everything for that?"

As I commented earlier ... there is a strong undercurrent of a generational gap. Young people belief their income is insufficient to live happily and pension costs are eating up the government budget.

Demographics of the Baby Boomers ... building an economy of wealth ... who profited?
