Trump’s complete failure to contain the covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a tremendous increase in COVID-19 deaths in the United States. Trump’s most grievous blunder occurred in 2018 when he eliminated the Federal Pandemic Task Force that was tasked with preparing our nation for future pandemics. Other major blunders included his late response in acknowledging the seriousness of the pandemic, failure to provide a scientific — based containment plan that includes adequate testing, contact tracing and site specific containment of hot spots.
In January 2020, many other countries began procurement of PPE, and formulating testing, and containment plans. Unfortunately, in late March 2020, Trump was still stating that “it’s no big deal.”
Trump has failed to enact the Defense Production Act for the production of reliable test kits, because he knows that if the general public and state governors realize that the virus is still on the rise, they will delay the opening up of the states restrictions. That will greatly impede the recovery of our economy and eliminate any chance of his re-election. He could care less about the increase of COVID-19 deaths.
Another blunder that Trump and his ultra-conservative Republican cronies are making is the complete denial of global warming. Trump’s response is “global warming is a hoax promoted by the Chinese.” That blunder could present an even greater crisis to future generations.
These are just two of many areas where Trump has demonstrated that he is a very dangerous, incompetent and corrupt president. Please remember this in November.
