Donald Trump has failed at his most fundamental responsibility.

August 27, 2020 – The Lincoln Project today released a new video titled “Protect,” calling attention to Donald Trump’s most egregious failure: his inability to protect the American people.

The most glaring example of this is the nearly 180,000 lives lost to COVID-19, but other examples abound. Soldiers are risking their lives while potential bounties hang over their heads. Americans are embroiled in omnipresent racial tension and police brutality. Ongoing and looming natural disasters plague the nation with little attention, if any, from the White House. All of this is happening on Trump’s watch.

“President Trump is the real threat to Americans’ safety,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “Our most pressing issues, COVID-19 and economic collapse are costing lives and livelihoods grow only worse as Trump’s failures mount.”

We know that Joe Biden is different. He’s proven it time and again and now he’s got real, pragmatic, decisive plans for handling the myriad of crises Trumps created. To protect our families, friends, and communities, Americans know: Joe Biden is the right man for the job.



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.
