Earlier this year, Broadway star Nick Cordero died after 95 days of battling the virus which has claimed over 200,000 American lives.

Despite these many deaths, President Donald Trump has continued to downplay the seriousness of the virus, even tweeting that Americans shouldn't be afraid of it after catching it and receiving emergency medical treatment himself.

Now, Cordero's widow, Amanda Kloots, is speaking out against Trump, showing the effect his words can have on a family who lost a loved one because of the pandemic.


Kloots shared a selfie video to her Instagram story and also posted several images trying to convince her followers that the President's attitude was both dangerous and deeply disrespectful.

Kloots ultimately wanted to convince her followers to vote for Joe Biden in the upcoming elections!

Twitter appreciated Kloots sharing her story. This has no doubt been a profoundly difficult time for her to be in the public eye.



Most families who have lost a loved one were also likely hurt by Trump's insensitivity.



Nick Cordero's death shows that the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions aren't the only people at risk of serious complications when it comes to the virus.



Hundreds of thousands of American families have lost a loved one to the virus and any empathetic President would think of those people before tweeting about how nice his own recovery has been.
