It is has become obvious the country was not prepared for a pandemic. It is also a fact that Trump ignored multiple warnings from the CDC, the national security team and his advisors. Our lack of preparedness is shocking. Among other things we had inadequate technical staffing, medical supplies and essentially zero testing and virus tracking capabilities. These are documented facts. They are not fake news.
This is documented in a NYT piece: He Could Have Seen What Was Coming: Behind Trump’s Failure on the Virus
It is also interesting to compare the US response,delayed and flawed to say the least, with the Korean response, documented by David Leonhardt, NYT Opinion Columnist: Trump’s Role In The Death Toll.
