The United States are receiving help from other nations to deal with the impact of COVID19 in Americans.

[b]This is how it should work. Right? We helped China and now it’s own turn to get the help. [/b]

I must admit that I was surprised that we helped send so much medical PPEs to China.
Someone is going to complain about this and say something like we should bomb them instead. Like really I have seen people on here saying that exact thing.
@Orlbe You mean help each other or bomb each other?

@canusernamebemyusername bomb each other?
@Orlbe I think people just say that. The people that say that kind of stuff are too cowardly to actually go through with it from what I have seen. And thankfully we have had leaders that have so far avoided such atrocities. A lot of times during the cold war we came close with the USSR but thankfully there were people on both sides that wanted to avoid a hot war at all costs.
This is how it should work.

@Mamapolo2016 Yes I know. Hopefully they send us lotsa PPEs. We really need um.

Why are you surprised we helped them?
SimplyTracie · 26-30, F
@sarabee1995 I know right? Would these leaders allow their employees to play the blame game? I don’t think so.
I’m a nobody and my manager always said, don’t wait to be told - see something that needs to get done, just take care of it.
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
@SimplyTracie Yup, exactly. Same in the military.
SimplyTracie · 26-30, F
@sarabee1995 I don’t know how y’all can stand having Trump as your Commander In Chief. My head would explode. 🤯
Yep. That's how the world should work. Only I'm surprised Trump accepted the help.

@quitwhendone he had no choice, seeing as how he gave our equipment away and now his son in law claims that stockpile isn't for the states....I guess it is for China then? 🙄
@JaggedLittlePill Isn't Jared brilliant? 🤣
The only thing china has done is send fake masks gowns and gloves OK and infect half the world

That a great nation
@daisymay have you not read the news lately china has send inferior medical equipment to the USA and other countries
SimplyTracie · 26-30, F
@canusernamebemyusername @CherryNow
Did we send 18 tons of [i]inferior [/i] medical supplies to China in February? We shouldn’t have sent our shit to them.

@CherryNow [quote]have you not read the news[/quote]

Sounds fake.

I heard that the USA were 'pirating' medical supplies that should have gone to Germany.
SimplyTracie · 26-30, F
@ThatMusgraveWoman I’ve heard those rumors too. But that would be evil and I don’t think the US would do anything like that. Would we?
ThatMusgraveWoman · 70-79, F
@SimplyTracie Apparently it's true. Tens of thousands of masks were destined for Germany and were diverted to the USA. The Germans had contracted for them and are naturally annoyed.

I doubt it will happen though
vetguy1991 · 51-55, M
@SimplyTracie that we will get much help from other countries
SimplyTracie · 26-30, F
@vetguy1991 Russia will continue to help I’m sure. And China.
vetguy1991 · 51-55, M
@SimplyTracie we will see
daisymay · 46-50, T
But, but, but AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM!!
SimplyTracie · 26-30, F
@daisymay We are special but but the virus ain’t picky. It don’t care that Americans are exceptional peoples. 🤨
JaggedLittlePill · 41-45, F
We should never have been sending equipment to China or anywhere else. We needed that equipment.

I am all for helping others..not at the expense of lives in our own country.
SimplyTracie · 26-30, F
@JaggedLittlePill I agree. Did we not think we’d need the stuff?
