Each day, a new American family grieves another loss that didn’t have to happen.

August 25, 2020 – As the Republican National Convention gets underway, it seems that Donald Trump has forgotten the country is in the midst of a pandemic. Today, The Lincoln Project reminds him with the release of a new video, “The Wall,” which features a grisly update to the nation’s death toll and a previous Lincoln Project spot.

“While Trump spends the week obsessing over RNC coverage, many Americans will be planning funerals, saying virtual ‘last goodbyes’ to sick loved ones, and worrying whether or not they’ll catch COVID at work,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “It’s reprehensible, and we won’t let him pretend this isn’t happening.”

With all eyes on the convention and the Senate on vacation, Donald Trump is hoping for a break. Americans will not forget the pain his inaction has caused.



There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.

Thank you for joining us in this fight.
