The real tragedy is that this chaos may well drag on until after the Election, with no leadership capable of handling the effects of the "Trump Flu" in place till January 2021.

It's great that Trump was smart enough to act fast in stopping visitors from China, even in the face of Biden and other Dems calling him racist for doing so.

Really? Why work when you can draw unemployment and get paid more for NOT working!

And yet he didn't. More than 40,000 people flew here from China after the "ban" went into effect. Weird.

If you worked a small locally owned business shut down, be prepared for your job not coming back and making less even if you can find one - that's the effect the shut has had.

Thanks, Trump. 17 MILLION now unemployed. Economy on the brink of catastrophe. That's what you get for golfing and tweeting all day instead of doing your job.

MAGA! WINNING!

Trump's fake travel ban worked so well he have nearly a half million cases here now.

No wall, no canceled flights, no travel bans. Fake, fake, fake.

Winning!?!

Yeah let's just conveniently forget that the WHO was saying the virus had no human to human infections in late Jan and there was nothing to worry about, then even after trump initiated the ban the dems, pelosi and shumer belasio, coumo and their lackey MSM were calling trump xenophobic and racist, encouraging people to go to china town and the chinese new year parade, to carry on as usual, and then when an effective treatment was found did everything to demonize it and prevent its use. Why would they do that?

It's the governors who shut down entire states when all they needed to do was to quarantine the large cities and leave bumfuck nowhere alone. Now we have them keeping certain essential stores that are open from selling nonessential items out of the same store.

The initial reaction wasn't a Dem or Rep issue, no one really saw this coming. Trump wasn't racist for shutting down travel to/from Asia, but missed a huge problem by delaying the same from Europe (which, the CDC says based upon genetic profile, is where most of our cases originated).

Since our initial containment miss which is hard to blame on either party, Trump's leadership has been a dumpster fire.

W.H.O. declared Covid-19 a global emergency on January 30.

Donald Trump waited to declare the Chinese virus a national emergency on March 13.

Democrats saw it coming. Trump had a playbook from the previous administration that he ignored. Intelligence gave Trump briefings and warnings he ignored. Senators asked the head of HHS to request emergency funds in January and he declined saying Trump had it under control.

South Korea got their 1st case the same day the US did. Their economy is still open. They aggressively tested and isolated people. Trump ignored it and now everything is shut down and we are stuck with over $2.2 trillion in new deficit spending and $4 trillion from the Fed so far.

Trump's response has been a inept and a disaster. That's why the economy is in free fall. It didn't have to be this way. That's Trump's legacy.

A competent leader would have intervened early and prevented the high rate of spread and needless deaths. Trump wasn't capable of doing that and isn't fit or competent.
