'Heroes of the fight against coronavirus': The White House issued a commemorative coin in honor of Trump and Pence
Unofficial White House Gift Shop White House Gift Shop presented a commemorative collectible coin “World against COVID-19”, on which he named President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and some other officials “heroes of the fight against coronavirus”. This event immediately caused a storm of indignation in the network.
On an unofficial site White House Gift Shop A new souvenir coin became available for pre-order at a promotional price of $ 100. The usual price, as written on the site, is $ 125. According to the site, sending coins to customers will begin on June 15.
The subject of the product is the COVID-19 pandemic in the world and in the USA.
Trump’s quotes about the coronavirus are printed on the coin, which, as social network users have noted, are more like military slogans: “Every ordinary citizen has contributed,” “Together we fight an invisible enemy,” “Every day the heroes dress up” (we are talking about doctors who wear protective suits every day. - Ed.).
On one side of the coin is a world map with a large coronavirus hanging in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. On the back is the White House press conference room, where Trump made his most scandalous statements about the pandemic: the prediction that the virus will disappear in warm weather, and the assumption that COVID-19 can be treated by injecting the patient with a disinfectant..
The image of the room is framed by two rings: on one of them are the names of Trump and Vice President Mike Pence; the other ring contains the names of the president’s coronavirus team members - Dr. Deborah Birks, Dr. Anthony Fauci, US Chief Surgeon Dr. Jerome Williams and head of the Department of Finance Steve Mnuchin. At the same time, the coin does not have the name of Alex Azar, the head of the country's Department of Health.
The new coin is part of a series of souvenirs that illustrate important events during the Trump presidency. The collection also includes coins that depict the meeting of the US president with Kim Jong-un and negotiations with Vladimir Putin.
The site states that the proceeds from the sale of coins will be directed to help the five major US hospitals that treat patients with COVID-19.
Users of social networks are indignant - for many, the sale of these coins seemed inappropriate. Some even joke that Ivanka Trump's handwriting can be traced in this venture.
