Dear President Trump and colleagues,

The country and the world needs your help in a new way. COVID-19 rates continue to rise, taking a heavy toll on human life and conditions of living.

Time and time again, people clung to the belief that the situation was being hyped up by the media, that this coronavirus was really more benign than reported, that common measures such as social distancing and the use of masks were ineffective or unnecessary, and so on.

Around the country, while many people take appropriate precautions, in many places people continue to disregard basic human decency, exposing not just themselves but others to unnecessary risk in defense of what they perceive as basic freedoms.

They look to you for leadership, and the message they receive is based on denial, false assurance and contradictory messaging as while you publicly show invulnerability, your staff takes steps to ensure your safety. The public message encourages people to continue to take unnecessary risk, leading to social and economic ruin, and death.

We do not know your motivations for continuing to follow the same path. Regardless, please change your behavior to model proper precautions and your messaging to reach your followers.

We request that people who may influence the President also show courage in speaking up, taking action to turn the tide and work to save many lives. Adopting appropriate measures and supporting them at the highest level of government will allow the country to move forward, not just preserving lives and protecting healthcare workers from further immediate risk, but also allowing everyday life to return to a safe new normal through the adoption of effective measures. This will allow the country to open up safely, in the service of economic recovery.

Lead the country out of denial. You will save many lives, rescue the economy, take steps toward restoring the US place in the world, and affirm Presidential greatness in a time of global crisis.
