According to words reaching 18 Karat Reggae, Donald Trump discussed with his administration the idea of downplaying COVID-19 so it could kill more older people and help fix the Social Security problem that the country is facing.
Social Security will run a deficit starting next year as benefits will exceed revenue. That will mean a 21% benefit cut for all recipients. On top of that, with the current laws, social security will run completely dry by 2035.
In an exclusive email sent to 18 Karat Reggae from an anonymous source, Donald Trump, talked with glee to his administration of how the more seniors that succumb to the coronavirus the more solvent social security would become.
“The president is concerned that the only way to keep social security solvent is to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations but he actually want to do more tax cuts,” the source said. “So he actually saw coronavirus taking out older recipients as a solution to the problem.”
The age to qualify for social security benefits is 66 years and 2 months. Over 150 thousand of the deaths by coronavirus were qualified for social security based on their age. Some younger people with underlying health conditions were also receiving health benefits in the form of Medicaid and Medicare. A substantial number of these people were Black and Brown.
“The president does not care if people have to die it means he and his wealthy friend and family will not have to pay higher taxes,” the source said.
At the start of the year, there were 64 million people on some form of social security. Of those, 38 million were over the age of 66. Sadly but to the delight of Donald Trump, over 150 thousand of the 66 million were lost to the coronavirus.
The source said if it was not for a few adults in the Trump administration and some governors who defy the president’s wish, coronavirus would have been allowed to take out at least a quarter of the people who are currently on social security.
