Uh, he banned travel from China. So in my opinion, he saw a threat. Others have said that he banned travel from China because he is a racist. I'm inclined to think his motivation was otherwise.

Trump is not to blame for coronavirus.

Yeah but Fauci was getting his info from the WTO who was repeating China's lies. If China had not lied about it, no doubt the experts would have warned the political class sooner.
Godstud wrote:The fact that they had a Chinese festival in NY 2 days before Trump's rally is irrelevant given the information that they have.
Trump's rally wasn't in NYC's Chinatown.
All the Democratic party candidates were holding rallies too. All in places that had no known reports of coronavirus.

Well, if the CIA is trying to get him to do something, that would be suspicious because the CIA still hasn't fired Eric Ciaramella. As long as they want to overthrow the president of the United States, it's perfectly reasonable for Trump to cast a gimlet eye on the CIA.

Or poorer. I'd rather have my US living standard.

Everyone knows that's bullshit @late.

Aren't you just upset, because it's the people who embrace woke politics that are getting hurt the worst? That's true outside of the US too.

Trump suspended travel from China and put returning Americans in quarantine. He was called a racist for this action. Trump did not disband the pandemic team. It was reorganized by John Bolton. Trump was listening to his experts and repeating what they were telling him. The only late response is that he didn't shut off travel from Europe sooner, but the World Health Organization implored him not to do so for reasons that are mystifying.

For the establishment, yes. That's why I like him.

I think the bigger problem is the WHO. I think a lot of people are smart enough not to trust communists, but the WHO purports to act as the CDC of the world, and they actively spread materially false information to Western countries and opposed travel bans.
