If he wanted the biggest, most beautiful pandemic ever, he's winning

[quote]In January, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a global health emergency. Now, a report by the Associated Press reveals that the Trump administration squandered months instead of preparing for the coming pandemic. The administration's lackluster response is having deadly consequences.

Federal purchasing contracts reviewed by AP show that federal agencies did not begin placing bulk orders of medical equipment until mid-March. That means rather than acting as soon as the World Health Organization declared a pandemic, the Trump administration waited two months before placing bulk orders of N95 masks and ventilators — essential equipment for health workers battling coronavirus.[/quote]

History is probably going to view Trump's handling of the pandemic as negligence that took years to fix.

You put a lot of faith it the WHO the same people that said not to close borders and face masks don't help,
They've since said nothing on borders but did say, "we'll look into it" on face masks.
We had a hamster that died last year, it knows more about infection control then the WHO.
trump was led by "experts" that we led by the WHO, it's not entirely his fault,mostly, but not entirely.

The Chinese squandered months by trying to hide it.

@jackson55 And? That diminishes Trump's arrogant incompetence how?

@jackson55 so how does Chinese duplicity justify Trump's incompetence?

It's a dumb excuse. Everyone knew how serious it was when the Chinese built all those hospitals.
