@Julian658 The biggest flaw that Trump has is this. Trump reacts
to things, and is actually a big procrastinator. He doesn't really look into things until it's an emergency, and then he does so with little thought or fore-thought of what the impact will be. He also doesn't try to get information about the problem and thinks he can bluster his way thru, like he's done with his businesses, in the past.
This is tied to his narcissism, wherein he's as concerned about his Facebook numbers moreso than the Americans he's supposed to be leading and ensuring have protection from a pandemic.
Him trying to order businesses to stop selling PPE to other countries is more of this reactionary stuff I just mentioned. He's not thinking of the future, or how this will affect trade with allies, now and even after the pandemic.
Trump is responsible for the economy. As Truman said: "The buck stops here.". Everybody know this is fact, even if Trump does not. His leadership directly affects the economy, and America, thru the pandemic.
So far, he's shown a distinct LACK of leadership and the economy has reacted to this, very negatively. He could turn this around if he got some really, really, ridiculously good speech writers and could stick to the script. He'd need to stop Tweeting narcissistic nonsense and become a President in both word and deed.
I do not think Trump is capable of this.

CNN is all over this saying that Trump is fool and may harm people with Hydroxychloroquine. However, I think it is worthwhile a try. Here is a recent paper out of France:
Did you mean this study?No Evidence of Rapid Antiviral Clearance or Clinical Benefit with the Combination of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin in Patients with Severe COVID-19 InfectionIn summary, despite a reported antiviral activity of chloroquine against COVID-19 in vitro, we
found no evidence of a strong antiviral activity or clinical benefit of the combination of
hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin for the treatment of our hospitalized patients with
severe COVID-19. Ongoing randomized clinical trials with hydroxychloroquine should provide
a definitive answer regarding the alleged efficacy of this combination and will assess its safety.https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/a ... via%3Dihub
