    Trump is just continuing what he has been doing since January, helping the virus spread. Why people do not suspect Trump of ordering up this virus is a mystery to me.

  • Do you really think the virus can be contained?   what brainfart led you to that conclusion?

    The idea, and it's a good one, is herd immunity.

    Largely it's trump's narcissism. He thinks he knows more than he does. 

    He was warned in Jan. about the potential deadliness and by his own admission intentionally downplayed it. This backfired by instilling a false sense of security which in turn led to reckless behavior and the US ended up w/ the highest contamination. 

    He also blew it by insisting testing makes us (HIM) look bad and to slow it down. The opposite is true. He should have redirected manufacturing by invoking the Defensive Protection Act to make testing ubiquitous w/ rapid results. Testing is one of the few/best ways we have to meet the challenge because early detection mitigates the spread to prevent hot spots. 

    He set the wrong example by infrequently wearing a mask. I heard him suggest it OK for sick people to go to work etc. 

    Pretty much, his behavior was so wrong, it facilitated the spread. The US is in deep now and to enact the proper adjustments at this stage would make him look bad by how long it took. It's easier for him to lie about how we're "turning the corner". Understand, this is the same guy who started saying the virus would magically disappear several months ago and repeated that message at least 10 times. 

    It's obvious today we're hitting the 2nd wave stride just as the experts in the field of virology predicted if we didn't contain the virus before the weather changed. The experts are who trump should have listened to.

    Because they and Republicans have no interest in whether Americans Live or Die. This is the ultimate decision for a Dictatorship and totally irresponsible.  You Vote Republican and they could care less about your life. Kick these bastards out or they will kill you !!

    There's nothing that can completely stop it. If Trump did nothing, millions could have died. He’s in a no win situation. He was criticized for his travel ban. Nancy Pelosi said “The Trump Administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law.”

    They haven't but it is a futile goal, since the virus will run its course regardless.

    Lockdowns only delay the spread.  They never could contain them.
