This 22 May 2020 video from the USA says about itself:
The REAL Reason Elon Musk Is Threatening California
“The California Tesla factory that reopened this week has a long history of racking up environmental violations, government records show.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk threatened to move the Fremont, CA, factory to Texas or Nevada, after county officials refused to let him reopen despite the state loosening its coronavirus restrictions. The county later struck a deal with Musk that allowed the factory to reopen with a slate of safety measures in place.
The battle quickly took on political overtones, as Musk reportedly downplayed the pandemic, winning President Trump’s support, and echoed right-wing rallying cries. Tesla workers protested the reopening, warning that work conditions will be unsafe.
Documents detail 42 violations as recently as February and as far back as 2017. Officials told The Young Turks this week that the violations are still pending.”
‘TRUMP LIES, PEOPLE DIE’: PROTESTORS LEAVE BODY BAGS OUTSIDE WHITE HOUSE Activists laid body bags outside the White House to protest what they consider to be Trump and Republicans’ catastrophic response to the pandemic. The demonstration started with a mock 200-car funeral procession passing by the Capitol building, and ending at the White House, where demonstrators dumped body bags onto the sidewalk. “Trump Lies, People Die,” read signs affixed to the body bags, meant to symbolize the nearly 100,000 people in the U.S. who have died so far in the pandemic.

EXPERTS WORRY TRUMP’S HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE CLAIMS MAY HAVE MAJOR CONSEQUENCES Trump and his administration may not be worried about the grave risks associated with taking hydroxychloroquine to ward off the coronavirus. However, experts are. Dr. Megan Ranney, a professor of emergency medicine at Brown University, told HuffPost that she would not prescribe hydroxychloroquine — sometimes called HCQ — to treat or prevent COVID-19. “First, we don’t know whether it works,” she said. “Second, although it certainly has been used for years for some diseases, it also has well-known life-threatening side effects.” [HuffPost]
TRUMP DITCHES MASK AT FORD PLANT President Donald Trump was without a mask at the Rawsonville Components Plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, even though Ford’s policy requires everyone to wear PPE to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Ford officials wore facial coverings while Trump, senior adviser Hope Hicks and chief of staff Mark Meadows went without masks for the public portion of the tour. The president has been notoriously resistant to following the CDC guidelines regarding masks. Trump claimed he wore a mask privately — and at least one photo caught him wearing one adorned with the presidential seal — but he took it off before appearing in public because he “didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.” [HuffPost]
TRUMP SLAMMED FOR PRAISING ‘GOOD BLOODLINES’ OF HENRY FORD Trump faced backlash online after he praised Henry Ford, the founder of Ford Motor Co., as having “good bloodlines,” following his tour of a Michigan tour plant. Henry Ford was among the most influential anti-Semitic figures in the U.S. in the early 20th century. He held deeply prejudiced personal views, and his anti-Semitic writings were admired and praised by Adolf Hitler. Through his Michigan hometown newspaper, The Dearborn Independent, Ford disseminated hundreds of articles that claimed the existence of an international Jewish conspiracy that served as a rationale for anti-Semitism.
