    Now Trump has his own personal Vietnam?!! It took us 10 years to reach 58,000 dead in Vietnam?!! Trump did it in just six weeks and it's not over yet!

    In the winter of 1968, with no end in sight to the surging Vietnam War, and unable to see a way past his signature failure and the divided nation the conflict had created, President Lyndon Johnson announced to a shocked nation that he "shall not seek, and I will not accept" the Democratic nomination for president. The war, with an American death toll that eventually reached 58,000, had destroyed the Johnson presidency.

    In the next day or two the Covid-19 pandemic death toll in the United States will match that Vietnam War death toll. (On Sunday night, the tally stood at 55,000.) What took nine years of jungle warfare in Vietnam, Trump and his utterly failed pandemic leadership has overseen in just six weeks time. Yet rather than conceding his failures and acknowledging his shame the way Johnson did in a self-less attempt to heal the nation, Trump has spent recent days suggesting people ingest Lysol or Clorox in order to cure themselves of Covid-19. (He later insisted, not believably, that he was joking about the deadly advice.)

    Nearly 58,000 are dead, the American economy has collapsed, food lines are growing, and the unemployment rate could hit 20 percent this year. In a sense, this is Trump's Vietnam and Trump's Great Depression.

    You meant 'China' killed more Americans with their covid-19 than the Vietnam war.

    Make sure you remember that.

    I'm a healthcare practitioner and blaming this on Trump is about as stupid as blaming Obama for the 20,000 deaths from H1N1.

    If you want to get political the most liberal state in the country, NY, has the most deaths. Maybe I should say liberals are stupid for not practicing social distancing even though they knew how deadly the virus is. But I won't because the virus is highly contagious and doesn't care about your precautions. Humans screw up and the virus will find a way to infect you.

    There was no false flag event like LBJ’s Gulf of Tonkin Incident, nor any executive order to invade Wuhan with 180,000 combat soldiers .. so.. um...

    Vietnam was a war in which mostly young men died. This is a pandemic caused by a virus which mainly kills the elderly and those with poor health.

    Why compare the two?

    Most leaders of other countries didn't fail so miserably like Trump.
    Trump could have seen what was coming.

    Trump to America: Don't blame me

    If not Trump, who is to blame?!!

    (CNN) When the announcement came from the White House on Monday morning that there would be no briefing, there was a sigh of relief.

    And not just from weary fact-checkers and health care professionals, but from members of President Donald Trump's own political party who have been forced to at worst defend and at best explain his failure to prepare for, manage and communicate on the worst public health crisis in a century.

    But there was no way President Trump was going to miss his opportunity to communicate his own alternative reality of how well he has handled and managed the response to coronavirus. He loves the spotlight. Even when it is under the worst possible circumstances. He can't seem to help himself. How else would he blame everyone else?

    Trump raises his virus death toll projection to up to 70,000 in U.S.

    The orange clown should hit this mark before election day, especially if he opens up the country full throttle and limited testing too?!!

    President Donald Trump on Monday acknowledged more Americans would die of the coronavirus than he has recently predicted, now saying that the nationwide toll is likely to be between 60,000 and 70,000.

    Nearly 56,000 have already died, according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.

    "So, yeah, we've lost a lot of people," Trump said during a press briefing in the Rose Garden. "But if you look at what original projections were, 2.2 million, we are probably heading to 60,000 to 70,000."

    nope, trump calling it Flu for 2 month waste precious time is the reason. Look at SK/Taiwan/Japan, SK got the cov19 case on the Same day as US, yet they did it much better jobs.

    We should have sent 75 y.o. diabetic heart patients to Viet Nam? Is that OP's point? Eh, it's smarter than the actual failed attempt.

    Democrats are now screaming he doesn't have the 'Constitutional Authority' to open or close businesses, lock down & open up states. So which is it? Make up your mind. Democrats are constantly moving the goal posts. Which is probably why they can't stand the Electoral College. Dems don't like rules that don't favor them and when cheating doesn't work in their favor.

    Oh and FYI, those countries you mentioned not only have a fraction of the population the US has but are sitting right next to China which pretty much makes a majority of the PPE required for healthcare workers and the covid tests that came out of China. It's called 'Logistics.'

    What? Did you see what happened to Italy?

    And Democrats keep moving the goal posts. One day he should have done something, the next the has no 'Constitutional Authority' do do anything. Not to mention after H1N1 during the Obama admin we should have been making our own PPE. But since China makes most of the PPE we were screwed.

    So please tell me, what was Trump supposed to do? I'm all ears.

    He should administer the Corona crisis to competent scientists and stay out of that topic completely. As the second step, he should resign.

    no, he should have paid attention, the risk was low of catching it at that moment in time, he said it may escalate in a months time - use that time to prepare

    Trump had time to prepare, but squandered it
