To decide, I made a timeline, using information from this Washington Post article:
The U.S. was beset by denial and dysfunction as the coronavirus raged
Every opposition party always screams these two messages:
1. The current administration is awful.Message 1 is always easy to make after the fact, but message 2 is very weak and unconvincing. If the president had been Obama or Biden, the public statements would have had a style more to my liking, but events would probably have followed the same course.
2. We would do much better.
There are reasons to vote for Democrats, but I'm afraid I must agree with the majority of Americans that President Trump is doing reasonably well at handling the crisis.
