Trump tells lies while basking in the praise

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Donald Trump was cheered by hundreds of Carrier workers a year ago when he announced that he saved their jobs from moving to Mexico (Daily Gazette, Dec. 3).The same workers now know that they were conned by Trump with promises he had no intention of fulfilling. Carrier announced the laying off of 600 workers whose jobs Trump claimed to have saved a year ago. Instead of saving jobs, “more than 91,000 jobs have been sent overseas since Trump was elected, the highest number of jobs lost to outsourcing in five years.”Trump’s entire career consists of lying and conning people with false promises, including the Trump University students who were encouraged to take loans to pay tuition for a degree that turned out to be useless. He stiffed contractors and workers who worked on his properties.Trump had no plans to save the Carrier jobs. Trump has an insatiable need for adulation. He made the promises to the Carrier workers for the applause and cheers he knew he would receive when he stood in front of them to con them with false promises.Mark MarkovitzNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

Not coronavirus: North Sumatra agency denies virus killed cruise ship crew member

first_imgTwo of Jung’s friends from the cruise ship, identified as Philippine nationals Jacky and Robles Jesus, accompanied Jung.Alwi said Jung was declared dead upon arriving at the port, despite the team’s efforts to provide him medical assistance.“We are still waiting for the results of a medical examination [to find the cause of death],” Alwi said. He added that Jung’s body was undergoing an autopsy at Pringadi Hospital in Medan.Jung’s death sparked concerns it was connected to the global coronavirus outbreak. AFP reported that a total of 1,011 people had died from the new coronavirus infection as of Tuesday, with more than 42,000 others having been tested positive for the virus around the world. (syk)Topics : The North Sumatra Health Agency has dismissed rumors saying the death of a South Korean working aboard a Sunshine cruise ship in the province’s waters was caused by a disease related to the Wuhan coronavirus.The agency’s head, Alwi Hasibuan, said the Korean citizen — identified as Jung Seungwong, 21 – did not die from being infected by the coronavirus because he did not show any symptoms of fever or shortness of breath beforehand.Jung also had no history of traveling to a country with confirmed cases of the coronavirus up to 14 days before his death, Alwi said. “According to those facts, we concluded that the Sunshine crew member did not die because of the coronavirus,” Alwi said during a press briefing on Monday.Prior to his death, Jung was sailing from Singapore to Qatar on a Panama-flagged Sunshine cruise ship. When the ship reached Aceh’s waters on Sunday, the ship sent a distress signal to the Belawan Navy Command Post, asking for a medical evacuation for the Korean crew member.Read also: Cruise ship rejected by four nations runs out of optionsA team comprising personnel from the Navy post, a water police unit and health officials from state-owned energy holding company Pertamina approached the cruise ship to collect Jung.
