Fact of the Day

 Donald Trump’s plan to knowingly, deliberately, and intentionally remove up to 24 million Americans from Health Cover  will kill up to 7,400 Americans each year, will kill about  16,000 Americans in his first term, and will kill about 43,000 Americans over an 8-year 2-term presidency. Indeed it is extremely pertinent here to consider the UN Genocide Convention that defines genocide as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group” 

Assuming 343.5 American deaths annually for each 1 million Americans without health insurance, we can determine the following American deaths due to removal from Health Cover by the Republican Trump Administrations’ American Health Care Act : 14 million x 343.5 deaths/million = 4,809 (2018),  5,221 (2019), 5,668 (2020), 6,114 (2021), 6,527 (2022), 6,939 (2023), 7,385 (2024), 7,488 (2025), and 8,244 million (2026).
This data means that if Donald Trump has a single 4-year term (2017-2020), his American Health Care Act will kill 15,698 Americans, and if Trump has 2-terms (2017-2024) his health insurance policies will kill 42,663 Americans.
