Framed by Chinese? LoL like the whole world has been "framed" by the Chinese with this virus. Quite the opposite he stood up against China who made the US its bitch under Mr Upfront Nobel. Well, literally everyone made the US his bitch under Obama. All passports are banned all over btw. He also presided over the best economy in decades until COVID and its thousands dead came for the CNN watching crowd's relief.

LoL sure, like he created the pandemic. Typical 'leftie' slandering made in CNN 🙄
Very good point. Unfair, if only he would've been allowed to take action against the epidemic...

US is a federal nation, most competences against pandemic are in the states' hands. He organized a federal stimulus plan which has so far prevented the economic catastrophical consequences we see elsewhere. He has acted clownishly, no doubt, that's how he is, but naming COVID "his legacy" LoL... that's beyond hyperbolic, unfair and simply untrue.

Wrong. Wasn't even a normative statement from me, but a positive/descriptive one. An observation (or a prediction rather). You'll see in time.

He didn’t create it. But the coward that he is, ran away from it.

I guess you could say that his bumbling incompetence created the world’s worst response.

I guess you have forgotten his original stance that he could and would dictate to the states what the response would be. Until he realized that COVID could not be fired - and ran.

It is not at all untrue that COVID will be his legacy. I know you pretend never to see the numbers, but COVID will be remembered as the virus that one of the richest and most technologically advanced nations on earth had no answer to. For lack of a leader.

If you would actually look at numbers, you would find that by most parameters Obama did better than Trump.
The most obvious is the DOW, which Trump likes to talk about. It performed much better under Obama.

You really are determined to be a Trump-like figure of fun on MTF.
Someone who, like Trump, just makes stuff up and then believes what he makes up.

So here are just a few 2nd quarter economic performances:
‘Germany: -10.1%
Canada: -12.0%
France: -13.8%
UK: -15%
Spain: -18.5%

TRUMPISTAN; -32.9%

Maybe you don’t understand the "-" sign.

Trump is only part of the problem. While he completely messed up on preventive social behaviour, he happened to be right on HCQ, even if only by chance; if he had his way on that, things would be better - Fauci and his ilk are to blame on that issue.

The BLM protests and riots that erupted are non-stop superspreader events. While he has contributed to the toxic climate in US, it's mostly a structural problem of its society, and the Dems and several other players have amplified the demonstrations to hurt Trump's chances of being re-elected.

Well it's the chinese virus hoax isn't it ?? He' did bite. It'll be his demise , so yeah the Chinese beat the hell out Trump . He played it all wrong , right to their hands . You see , a cocky egomaniac is easy to anticipate . Other world leaders are taking advantage of this situation (they adapted, have what we say cintura politica). They are intelligent . See a difference . Of course economically speaking we all been screwed .

How was he right on HCQ? There is no science supporting that.
Oh, maybe you get your science news from Cameroonian sorceresses.
Or any number of memes available on social media that contain lies about what Fauci says.

What do you mean by "Fauci and his ilk" anyway? Why not just say world class virologists?

There was a summer camp for kids in Georgia. Within days hundreds of children tested positive.

No wonder Trump wants the schools to open. He wants the children safely back in indoor classrooms instead of getting infected in summer camps.

Trump’s Pandemic Attack on the Affordable Care Act
The president’s support for killing Obamacare during the coronavirus pandemic shows a callous disregard for communities in crisis.
I've studied the Affordable Care Act for over a decade. And I believe that when the history of President Donald Trump's handling of the COVID-19 era is written, attacking the ACA during a pandemic will go down among his most racially divisive acts.

Even after an avalanche of racially problematic comments and provocations, trying to limit access to health care in ways that will disproportionately impact Black and Hispanic people while much of the nation grapples with whose lives matter will come to literalize how deeply the Trump administration has failed communities of color in a time of urgent need.
A pandemic is a time when the most people possible should have access to affordable medical care. Yet the Trump administration repeatedly uses COVID's cover to further its longstanding assault on the ACA. In March, as the medical and economic effects of COIVD-19 came into view, the administration refused to reopen ACA enrollment. In May, Trump called Obamacare "a disaster," and said he wanted to "terminate it."

The administration has since doubled down, filing a brief late last month in support of an effort before the U.S. Supreme Court that would abolish the law completely, arguing that the "entire ACA" "must fall."
The ACA was not perfect, and having health insurance is not the same as having access to quality health care. Yet critics often overlook important ways that the ACA narrowed unconscionable racial gaps in health care coverage in the U.S. When the law went into effect in 2010, 13% of nonelderly white Americans were uninsured, while the rate was 33% for Hispanics, 32% for Native Americans and Alaska Natives, and 20% for Black Americans. These numbers contributed to the remarkable 46.5 million people who lacked basic health care coverage – nearly 18% of the entire nonelderly population – before the ACA took effect.
The Obama administration worked diligently between 2010 and 2016 to expand coverage options for low-income communities, and coverage increased for all racial and ethnic groups as a result. By 2016, the uninsured rate for nonelderly Hispanics had fallen by a whopping 13.5 percentage points. Nearly 90% of nonelderly Black people had health care. Many people also paid less for prescription medications, incurred less medical debt and could more easily access a host of lifesaving treatments.
These scripts played into the historic falsity that whites are victims of distributive social programs, when in fact they've often become these programs' main dependents. I saw firsthand how these racial currents and anxieties pushed white men who might have initially supported ACA enrollment to voice hostility based on the zero-sum notion that health care reform usurped resources and privilege from people like themselves and gave them to undeserving immigrants and people of color.
"No way I want my tax dollars paying for Mexicans or welfare queens," a 41-year-old white Tennessee man with severe liver disease told me when I asked if he supported the ACA, even though he himself was badly in need of medical attention and later died from his illness.
Faced with the cascading tragedies of this moment, a different set of decisions would have allowed Trump to save American lives, change the course of the pandemic – even revive his reelection prospects. When racially disparate COVID-19 outcomes became evident, he could have declared that the structural drivers of such disparities needed to be targets of our national pandemic response. He could have pushed Southern governors to expand Medicaid when it became clear that financial ruin loomed for poor white people in red states who were about to lose their jobs and their health care.
A decision to bolster the ACA during a time when so many people were suffering and dying represented yet another opportunity to create what economist Amartya Sen calls a "better society" built on common cause. In a time of crisis, many people across the country would have responded.
Yet Trump always and inevitably does the opposite of better, and in ways that cast him as the embodiment of the kinds of American racism that protesters have filled the streets to rally against. Critics rightly accuse Trump of individual racism based on his long history of problematic actions and utterances. But thinking of activist Stokely Carmichael's great work in the 1960s, Trump's actions also fuel and represent the institutional racism that undercuts the social systems, conduits and investments – in areas like education, the economy and public health – that allow people of different backgrounds to imagine working toward healthier and more affordable futures together in the first place.
A better leader, in other words, would have responded when faced simultaneously with a new viral pathogen and a national reckoning on racism and police violence by promoting investment in equitable structures and institutions that would better ensure America's ability to face future pandemics.

Instead, if Trump's efforts to kill the ACA culminate with a Supreme Court decision that does just that, he will set us on a path toward ever more fatal injustices and inequities.
