Trump spends Saturday on the golf course as America heads for two,000 COVID deaths a day

Donald Trump spent his Saturday on the golf course as the U.S. has had more than 12 million coronaviruses and nearly 2,000 Americans die from the virus every day.

MSNBC's Kyle Griffin reported, "Trump is back on his golf course by pool report."

According to the COVID Tracking Project, more than 1,800 Americans have died from the virus every day for the past three days as this public health crisis deepens.

With the holiday season approaching and many Americans traveling and holding meetings – despite CDC guidance – those numbers are likely to get worse.

It all comes at a time when Donald Trump – still the president – has all but given up his job.

In the meantime, the Biden transition will be blocked

After losing the election to Joe Biden, Donald Trump made it clear that he has no interest in pretending to do his job for the next two months regardless of the raging pandemic.

What makes it worse is that he refuses to allow Biden to do his job by blocking the transition.

As MSNBC's Ali Vitali reported on Saturday, this refusal to move forward with the transition is unprecedented. In previous elections, once it became clear who won, it often took only 24 hours for the transition to begin.

At this point, very few people expect Donald Trump to spend the final days of his presidency doing actual work.

The least the current president can do is allow Joe Biden to clean up the mess Trump has created over the past four years.
