Over 150 thousand Americans are dead and millions more are unemployed in the wake of the pandemic that's completely transformed daily life in the United States.

Lawmakers continue scrambling to reach a consensus with their rival party in passing a new economic relief package after expanded unemployment benefits expired at the end of July.

But according to President Donald Trump's son, Eric Trump, America is "roaring back to life" because of a prosperous stock market.

Though a slim majority of Americans own stocks, most working class Americans don't have a significant financial stake in them. In other words, they won't be made rich or impoverished as a result of the stock market.

But the vast majority of Americans have been affected by the stratospheric rate of pandemic-induced unemployment, and many have lost health insurance provided by their jobs in a time when it's most necessary.

That information was largely why Eric Trump was criticized for his rejoicing tweet.

Eric Trump's tweet came just after his father was roundly excoriated in an interview with Jonathan Swan of Axios, in which Trump appeared to dismiss the 155+ thousand Americans who died of the virus.

Trump said:

"They are dying. It's true. It is what it is, but that doesn't mean we aren't doing everything we can. It's under control as much as you can control it."

Many are weary of the White House's apparent callousness for working class Americans.

Eric Trump isn't expected to apologize.
