He defunded pandemic response program. We could have and would have been better prepared.I'm curious what the haters wanted Trump to do exactly? (Besides trying to find some bullshit they can nitpick and blow out of proportion)
He "downplayed" and "didn't show enough leadership", or whatever that means. Because we look to our Tsar for answers to everything?
As far as I can tell, they organized some kind of response which I'm sure was no easy task within our shit maximize profit health care system (which undoubtedly leaves no room for emergency stockpiles of resources).
The extended lockdowns and mask pushing he resisted. I for one am glad he's there, as it seems the other side would still have us buried in the basement.
His (and anyone elses) resistance to masks is fucking stupid. They help. While the lockdowns/quarantine have pros and cons and are complicated and I'm fine with agreeing to disagree on, the POTUS encouraging morons not to wear masks because they look dumb or whatever has killed thousands of people. Period. With or without lockdowns, once scientific community agreed that masks helped, he should have been all-in on normalizing them.
You seem to give him credit for "opposing lockdowns", but he fucking didn't. It was just half assed shit across the board. Let the states decide, one day he's in favor of them, one day he's opposed. That's Trump in a nutshell, he's unconcsistent and lies relentlessly and just says whatever he thinks the person he's talking to wants to hear.
If he really thought lockdowns were a mistake he should have been consistently outspoken against them and done whatever he could ib his power to make them unconstitutional/pressure states to open. OR if he thought they were necessary he should have been just as assertive the other way. His wishywashyness on everything has us right where we are now, with no plan or cohesiveness across the nation at all.
But I wasted my time typing this because you still like him and it's the dems fault or whatever, right? It's just unreal to me anyone doesn't see this guy as the complete fucking fake and idiot that he is.
I get people voting for him over Biden for all kinds of reasons; disliking Biden, more right leaning views, etc etc. But actually liking this guy or thinking he's done a competent job with any of this? It's nuts to me.
