A Tapestry of Incompetence - The Trump Response to the Pandemic

July 23, 2020

The Trump Administration’s response to the pandemic has been a tapestry of incompetence.  Trump has gotten most things wrong, and even the few things the administration has gotten right, it has usually them undermined them.  Even the one big thing the President got right, the restrictions on travel from China, he then turned around and undermined. 

 

I cannot remember a Republican administration more against providing even the most basic data on government.  And surely the reason is that by almost any quantifiable measure, this administration has done a poor job, even before its response to the pandemic.  And again, on the pandemic, by just about any available number, this president has botched almost every decision he has made.  I’ll say it again - he really has created a tapestry of incompetence.
