Call me naive or ill-informed, but I always believed that the United States president was supposed to try to protect the United States from all enemies domestic and foreign. The Constitution says that.
So I mistakenly believed that if the United States encountered a crisis such as we have now with the coronavirus that the President would immediately put all possible resources to work to combat that outbreak before it could become a pandemic.
We heard on tape President Trump’s own words that China told him by phone in February this year just how dangerous the coronavirus is and he chose to keep that information from us. Instead he told us the virus would just magically disappear and he didn’t need to do anything.
At that time the United States’ opinion was respected in the world.The president could have helped save lives all over the world. We, however, now lead the world in lives lost to the coronavirus. Today over 190,000 mothers, fathers and children have died in the United States.
