Nearly fifteen supporters of President Trump gathered to protest against the “ Coronavirus Death Board ” banner that was installed in an Illinois park this month.
At least 50 pro-Trump demonstrators waved the “Make America Great Again” tools and the American flag as they protested along a road in the Northbrook suburb of Chicago.
According to Peter C., the high school student who organized the event, Friday’s turnout received more attention than he initially thought.
“We were only expecting 15 people,” said Peter C. Fox News. “We got a lot more than 15.”
The lively, youthful crowd and many of Peter’s schoolchildren chanted, “Back the Blue” as the cars drove fast during rush hour.
A few dozen Trump supporters gathered on Friday to protest the “Coronavirus Death Panel” that was installed last week

On the other side of the street stood the object of their anger and discontent: a sign placed in a public park called “Corona Virus Death Results Panel”.
The Coronavirus Death Scoreboard first appeared on September 18 in a local public park and showed the number of COVID-19 deaths in America as it exceeded 200,000.
The sign read “We Are No. 1” and read “Donald J Trump, President” at the bottom.
It was organized by local peaceful societies group and liberal activist Lee Goodman, who previously explained that the sign was meant to be a reminder of the countless souls lost in the pandemic.
This symptom is a reminder of the constant need to take precautions. Schools and businesses are reopening, but the disease is still spreading and people are still dying patch.
A banner dubbed “ Coronavirus Death Scoreboard ” was installed in a Northbrook public park last week by activist Lee Goodman and Peaceful Communities.
Goodman told CNN that the coronavirus scoreboard had been vandalized five times in just six days after it was revealed.
The United States has the largest number of COVID-19 deaths in the world. It is a tragedy and a shame that we have failed to do all we can to address this public health crisis, and as a result, many people have died unnecessarily. But we can do better in the future.
We hope that public awareness will lead people to demand a more effective response from our federal government.
In fact, the United States has remained at the top of a bleak list of COVID-19 cases and deaths during the pandemic.
The country has just passed 203,000 deaths with a staggering 7 million cases.

But Trump supporters saw the Corona virus death scoreboard as a clear and explicit insult against their candidate ahead of the November 3 elections.
The Coronavirus Death Scoreboard has since been vandalized, and Lee pointed it out CNN He was surprised by the anger.
He said, “We have been vandalized before when we ran the shows, but I was shocked because we are all in this virus situation together.” “Honestly when we brought it up, I didn’t think anyone would pay any attention at all.”
The sign was vandalized five times in just six days. Lots of spray paint was used to cover Trump’s name on the bottom.

Peter C. told Fox News that although the protest was carried out in part because of the banner, it also included a set of besieged issues that highlighted the country’s political divide.
“We are here to protest the reopening of our schools and education system and the funding of our police,” said Peter.
Then he claimed that “you don’t see Republicans attack others” and blame only “liberals” for “attacking us, who are attacking our police.”
His comment comes after 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree murder in the murders of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Hopper.
The teen had traveled to Kenosha on August 25 from his home in the nearby city of Antioch, Illinois, in a position to protect the streets of Kenosha as police shooting at Jacob Blake caused unrest during the protests.
According to prosecutors and court documents, Rittenhouse shot and killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum after Rosenbaum threw a plastic bag at Rittenhouse, losing it and attempting to confiscate his rifle away.
While trying to escape in the immediate aftermath of the accident, Rittenhouse was filmed in a video clip on a cell phone saying “You just killed someone.”
Hopper was killed shortly after and a third protester was wounded.

At some point during the event, a small group of anti-Trump protesters arrived to face the protest.
Fox News reported that one person criticized that song FDT [F*** Donald Trump]Others chanted phrases like “Black Lives Matter”, “Loves Trumps Hate” and “Super Callous Fragile Racist Lying POTUS” in reference to Mary Poppins.
Richard and Florence, a Northbrook couple, arrived at the pro-Trump rally because they found the sign “defamatory” toward the president.
More than 200,000 people died. “Every loss of life is terrible,” said Florence. “But it is not the president’s fault.”
They will not admit that she came from Wuhan, China. They are not telling the truth.
While the virus originated in Wuhan, America’s unilateral response and response to COVID-19 has fallen largely on the shoulders of the Trump administration.
Countries like New Zealand recorded their first confirmed case in February – one month after the United States – and has since been declared the gold standard for pandemic response.

Under Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand implemented a lockdown Intense Recovering a lost ball from the neighbor’s square is prohibited.
But the measures succeeded in stopping the spread of the virus, and the country lifted its lockdown restrictions and declared it free of viruses on June 8.
Citizens there are now not required to social distancing, and can freely visit bars, restaurants and public spaces again. As of Saturday, the country had collected just over 1,800 cases and 25 deaths.
Meanwhile, the United States continued to elude its response.
This month, Trump admitted to downplaying the virus due to concerns that people could “ panic ” early in the pandemic.
I am a fan of this country. I love this country. I don’t want people to be afraid. “I don’t want to panic,” he told reporters at the White House.
I definitely will not drive this country or the world mad. We want to show confidence. We want to show strength, we want to show strength as a nation. This is what i did
“Leadership is about trust. Trust is confidence in our country.
President Trump admitted this month that he had downplayed the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic to avoid citizen panic.
He has been criticized often during the pandemic for ignoring the advice of public health experts, such as Dr. Fauci, and for encouraging him to ignore measures like face masks.
But those present at the protest appear to be capitalizing on their discontent with anti-Trump protesters across the street and liberals in general.
“I think the liberals out there have few people out there who have no answers,” Richard told Fox News.
They’ve been sitting here now since last hour cursing us, pointing fingers at us and calling the president a racist. When I went there to ask them about how racist he was, they had no answers. … they just repeat what they hear on MSNBC and CNN and all the liberal networks. They have a blind hatred of the president – and they have no answers as to why.
