    Before the buffoon was conned by Xi regarding the imminent pandemic into looking like an idiot stupidly blurting that he had it "under control!", that it would just "go away!", it was not just the most competent and knowledgeable medical experts he was ignoring. (Falling for the self-serving bs of foreign leaders instead of trusting Americans with expertise is a peculiar trait of Trumpery.)

    Trump's enablers were also sounding the alarm. Even Tom "Picky" Cotton could recognize the reality, and tried desperately to get Trump to confront it:

    And one week after that date Trump restricted China travel, over the objections of Democrats and the corrupt media. If only Italy had done that.

    And, it was Too LATE.

    Also, since we are on the subject, Trump should have implemented the "Social Distance Guidelines" at least a month earlier.

    Instead, he was still holding Mass Rallies (Helping SPREAD the Virus and calling the Virus a "Hoax")

    Trump's response has been a Comedy of Errors and he continues to drop the ball.

    So your solution is to vote for the crowd that didn't want to do it at all? I'm not sure Biden supports actions like that even now.

    In late December, weeks before the WHO was telling us it wasn't contagious? You make no sense.

    That is a lie, he never called the virus a hoax.

    WRONG.:bored:
    I DIDN'T say anything about "December", you may want to re-read what I said (before posting such responses)

    Here was my EXACT Post:

    "Trump should have implemented the "Social Distance Guidelines" at least a month earlier."

    1) Trump announced the Social Distancing Guidelines on March 16, 2020

    https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/03/trump-announces-new-guidelines-to-slow-covid-19-spread.html

    I said "at least a month earlier" (which would be Feb. 16, 2020).

    Where did you get "December" from?

    Are you making that up? That WASN'T what I said.
    Oh? Ok.:bored:

    And compared to the opposition, he is still the voice of reason. Your post is a good example of that. Congrats!

    Within day Trump banned travel with China, over the objections of the Dems who called him racist and overreacting....they were literally parroting the Chinese line. The Dems are the Chinese puppets.

    Glad we have a President willing to stand up for America over the Chinese and their puppets objections.

    Yep... They will lambasting him for his travel ban saying he is overacting. Now they are saying he's not doing reacting enough.. All the SARS-COV-2 could be eliminated today and the first words out of their months would be "Well, he took too long and look all the people Trump killed!" I've never seen the insanity that I am seeing in todays world.

    Fortunately, if the world comes crashing down, at least we know the progressive left will be the first to go!

    If Trump walked on water they'd be complaining he can't swim.

    Are you capable of turning the television off when President Trump is on? Seem that may make one who is not a Trump fan a lot healthier.

    An old joke.

    If Biden walked on water they would say he can't swim...

    If Whitmer walked on water they would say she can't swim...

    Etc...

    Here is LBJ making that reference in the 1960's

    If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read: 'President Can't Swim.'
    Lyndon B. Johnson

    And, even at that time, the reference was ANCIENT.

    Anyway, back to the OP, Natty was spot on.

    And, Trump continues to drop the ball.

    He did no f%*#ing thing!! He banned Chinese foreign nationals from traveling here which is VERY different from banning travel to china. You've been corrected. Again. Knock of the bullshit.

    Yes he banned travel with China they could not come here

    the Chinese responded by saying he was fearmongering and the Chinese puppets in the dnc said he was over reacting and racist for doing it.

    experts now say it saved lives

    Actually, he called Xi Jan 24 to offer help in hopes that we could find out something to act on before it got here.

    We found out what actions the Dems would have taken by the crap they put or tried to put in the recovery bill and what they blocked. They absolutely had to fund Planned Parenthood since the think killing black babies is the solution to everything. They needed the Green New Deal so that medical equipment could be carried cross country on bicycles. The Kennedy Center and NPR were other priorities. Nothing like a good party, so they brought thousands of sick Europeans through NYC to New Orleans to Mardi Gras. Now they wonder why NYC and New Orleans are hot spots along with states that neighbor Louisiana. Since the disease came here through our borders, they blocked funding for border security. Then, they couldn't help but fire a shot at Trump by denying him assistance given to Democrat hotel owners. He didn't blink, but I hope before he leaves he brow beats Pelosi to pay back the money she stole from Americans by delaying swipe fee legislation while holding shares in the VISA IPO.

    No he did no such thing. He banned travel from China to a subset of the people going between the two countries. It was a weak response but better than none.

    He limited Chinese nationals.

    Sadly, the heavy travel of Chinese Nationals was going to the holidays in China.

    The heavy travel has been Western businessmen traveling between China and USA and others countries.

    Sadly COVID-19 is happy to infect and carry the virus to us.

    Trump's focus was more of a racial reaction, not a meaningful attemt to protect the USA, unless he had simultaneously do the travel and interaction restrictions for everyone in the USA that are just starting that we do now.

    Did that Chineserestructions reduce transmission? Some, probably. But nothing could stop it nor reduce it substantially. So far, racial considerations seem to make no difference.

    We were not gonna Americans from coming home. The ban was not racist and suggesting so at this point is utter clueless. We did the same thing to Europe and Canada. The ban slowed the spread.

    Please post a link to anyone in the DNC saying Trump was racist for imposing the travel ban.
    It’s your claim. Back it up.

    Biden said it on 2/1/20, the day after the ban was announced.
