A columnist for USA Today says the 500,000 Americans who have died of coronavirus should be buried at Mar-a-Lago, former President TrumpDonald TrumpRomney: 'Pretty sure' Trump would win 2024 GOP nomination if he ran for president Pence huddles with senior members of Republican Study Committee Trump says 'no doubt' Tiger Woods will be back after accident MORE's resort and golf club as payback for his response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

"This small measure of justice would have an obvious historical precedent," columnist Jason Sattler wrote Monday in the newspaper. "Arlington, the former home of Robert E. Lee that is now Arlington National Cemetery, became a final resting place for Union soldiers in the spring 1864 — after 82,000 soldiers died in one month of fighting. Who could argue this wasn’t a just punishment?" 

Sattler called Trump's response to the pandemic a "shameless failure" and mentioned other transgressions on the part of the former president, separate from the pandemic, as a reason to have his new residence serve as a mass burial ground. 

"Lee’s treachery was obvious. Trump’s crimes against his country, however, are far more devious, and continue as he remains dedicated to undermining our democracy," he wrote. "The ex-president tried to refuse to give up his power, even after he was defeated in a fair election. And you cannot dissect the ex-president’s incitement against Congress, his vice president and our constitutional order from his monstrous approach to the pandemic."

Trump has been widely criticized by Democrats and some media pundits for his hesitation to preach public health measures, his floating of unproven drugs as potential cures for the disease and his overall handling of the crisis.
