      @Everquest Sales This will be known in the future as the ‘American Pandemic’; it won’t matter where it began—what will be remembered is how one country failed to handle it costing the lives of so many of its citizens.

    • Everquest Sales | May 4, 2020 at 5:27 PM | Reply

      @Ged Farnan Yes China failed to handle this and china needs to be held responsible.

    • Ged Farnan | May 4, 2020 at 5:47 PM | Reply

      @Everquest Sales China isn’t in charge of your country!
      How you handle your own mess is what counts.
      The so-called ‘Spanish Flu’ originated in Kansas,USA.
      Do you think USA was “held responsible” or do you think people got on with dealing with it??
      Grow up and stop trying to blame your mess on someone else.
      You don’t need a scapegoat you need action!

    If trump had done the right thing on the virus from the beginning he would look like a hero. By lying about everything he has made things worse and looks like a buffoon.

    • @wee huddy lol france, italy are just two examples who got crushed. Nobody saw this coming, like i said everyone is a genius after the fact

    • @l vande every country was flooded with passengers. you act like the US is living in a vaccuum….whole world shut down lol

      and china should be blamed btw for no transparency/terrible info and held accountable

    • @DatGuy Close your eyes all you like … Trump shut down the relevant agencies and splintered the others . He was briefed on protocols by the Obama people when he was sworn in with the predicable results . His intel knew in December , but he hates to read and he only likes his intel folks when he is looking for something to rage at . My country is on it’s third day of no new cases , whereas 2,954 of your fellow Americans died yesterday , not infected , died . Still laughing ?

    • @wee huddy what country are u from ? You cant compare to the US in case u from some smallass country lol

    • @DatGuy
      Happy to be anywhere you MAGA halfwits aren’t . Laugh it up , 70,000 of your fellow Americans dead … That is in addition to the shootings , the opioid ODs , the heart disease , the morbid obesity , the compromised ,poisoned food chain the crappy healthcare , the non existent education system … yeah , sucks to be here … oh woe is me

      @Uncle Ed, Biden is the worst candidate the Democrats could have picked, but he’s running against the worst president in history. In a choice between bad and worst, you should go with bad.

    America please vote Trump out in November.

  7. Between Nov 3rd and Jan 20th this country will be in the most precarious position we have ever been in. He can do more damage in that time than the rest of his failed presidency.

      There are no constraints other than certain traditional ones — which Trump, by his nature, won’t respect if violating them promises to help him in any way.  A number of Presidents, knowing they are about to be replaced by a President from the other political party, have in the past acted during the transition so as to intentionally leave their successor with a thorny problem — a war, economic turmoil, a spate of newly-passed unpopular regulations, etc. — to sort out on Day One. There’s also the Official Records Act, which dictates that all official documentation at the Federal level be preserved for perusal by Congress, and for eventual filing in the National Archives. But Trump, as he routinely did in his business life, will destroy all compromising papers and electronic files and claim they never existed. Literally, on 2-3 different occasions while being sued for the release of records of the Trump Organization, Trump claimed that “the warehouse In NJ” in which they were supposedly stored had unfortunately burned down!

    • Looks like the world is f**ked , you ain’t gonna hold trump to account all he has to do now is declare war on china for this virus , the patriotidiotic population will back him ,the senate will back him , he declares the November elections postponed and he has won , he might even demand the senate give him more powers and declare the opposition press as unpatriotic and shut them down . This is how all fascist dictators get into power. He has already outmanoeuvred you..

    • That’s the scary part,plus his goon squads with Ar 15’s

    • Jeremiah C | May 5, 2020 at 4:31 PM | Reply

      @Lon Chan Thankfully, it’s written into our Constitution that his presidency expires in January. No matter what, he loses his power then (if he doesn’t first win re-election). I don’t *think* there’s any way around that…

    • Robert Haworth | May 5, 2020 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      After leaving office, the only thing he will be running is “for his life!” Having vacuumed up as much Federal money as he and his family can, they will all flee to Saudi Arabia or Russia (“to work on new real estate projects”), though the Kushners may make for Israel instead. These are all countries that have harbored bad guys (incld. Idi Amin!) in the past, and will never extradite him. Trump will stay overseas until dead, at which point all prosecutorial efforts are by law moot.

      @Michael M fairly easy…if Trump had taken early proactive measures to shut travel coming in from Europe and China as well as check inventory stock of PPE..in addition to heeding the mulitiple early warnings from intelligence we wouldn’t be in the mess that we are in. If only. If only.

    • turntableone thats easy to say after the fact. Trump did not shut down business and make laws on distancing and mask wearing, local government did that. Trump supports our rights and has made no laws agains them. Only god could have prevented this. Trump has done everything in his power to help.

    • turntableone | May 4, 2020 at 3:29 PM | Reply

      @Michael M they didn’t make laws on distancing…Trump did say that he felt the governor of Georgia opened his state up too soon for business..it all starts with Trump for instead of relying on his gut he should have opted to listen to the intelligence experts for we would have had fewer infections and fatalities.

      @N. deG It was also awkward when Dr. Christine Ford came out with her sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. Timing in itself does not disapprove any allegation. In fact, if this really was a plot against Biden, the best time to come out with these allegations would be in late October of 2020.

    “Americans are losing confidence that Trump can handle the pandemic”. Losing???? How could you have any confidence to lose after the last four months? Is there even a single example in this whole story of gross incompetence, ignorance and deceit that would convince anyone that Trump could effectively manage this crisis?

    In November, the real story will be this … over the next four years, there is going to be at least one other national crisis. After the destruction of human life, economic might and global influence, would you really choose to have four more years of this charlatan fumbling the response, dividing the population, embarrassing the United States on the global stage and being utterly invisible as a leader?

    I can’t believe that’s even a real question!

    • @Peter Robertson Immature name-calling and what-aboutisms is all the Trump supporters have to defend the likes of Trump. It’s scary to think about how Trump will react to losing in November. It will be a long two months for the US.

    • Peter Robertson | May 5, 2020 at 12:00 PM | Reply

      @John Swo – long is one thing, John – I have more worries about social stability and rule of law.

    • Peter – until you try to get to grips with why 45% of Americans still support the orange toddler, you won’t understand US politics. It’s good that you admit to being mystified, now start to mix with a far wider range of people. Once safe, try door knocking campaigning in red States – it’s mind blowing.
