Eric Trump’s Twitter poll on Wednesday garnered plenty of response.
Joe Biden and his radical left-wing party want open borders and closed schools. Conversely, my father wants open schools and closed borders. Which do you choose?— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) July 8, 2020
Trump conveniently ignored the fact that Biden is not campaigning for open borders. Biden also does want to reopen schools but once appropriate measures are in place to combat the spread of the coronavirus. The president has ordered schools to reopen in the fall under threat of losing federal funds.
Tweeters pulled no punches and some hit back with polls of their own:
Most Americans want schools online this year because Donald Trump has endangered the lives of millions of kids.— Russell Drew (@RussOnPolitics) July 8, 2020
Forcing 9-year-olds into enclosed spaces may be deadly.
Eric, where will your own brother/nieces/nephews be? In a public school classroom? Doubtful. And rightly so! pic.twitter.com/ZfmnSRWu92
Brilliant poll, you jackass.— JΛKΣ (@USMCLiberal) July 8, 2020
Why don’t you ask two more ridiculous things that have nothing to do with each other—like this:
Which would you rather do?
Hi,— Leslie All In 4 Biden 🇺🇲 (@Leslieoo7) July 9, 2020
Florida here. There are 400+ cases in my neighborhood and 2k within ten miles. The last thing we need are open schools.
Oh, and Biden isn't for open borders.
Oh, oh...and your dad will lose Florida over this. Arizona, too. And even f*ing Texas is in play.
Excellent question! Let's analyze:— Mark Judson For Congress - Scorched Earth Democrat (@Judson4Congress) July 8, 2020
If your goal is to kill as many non-rich Americans as humanly possible - you DEFINITELY open the schools.
If you want to honor:
1) American Values
2) the Statue of Liberty
You open the borders.
I see why the Trump*s chose "Schools". https://t.co/VMXF2zuI9k
How much Trump in our lives?— JRehling (@JRehling) July 8, 2020
Damn, you left out the third choice.— Mike Masin (@MikePhotoGuy) July 8, 2020
3. Impeach Trump and prosecute all crimes committed by the Trump family.
That's my choice.
Let the young get sick and die - some choice by @realDonaldTrump— The Colonel Report - truth through words (@colonel1907) July 8, 2020
Let’s see Mexico has closed their border with the US because of trumps incompetent response to covid. Opening schools is just going to increase the spread and cause more deaths.— The Tangerine Tantrum (@TheTangerineTa1) July 8, 2020
Which do I choose?
I choose @JoeBiden
