Democrats Call For Trump To Do Something On Coronavirus

Democrats do not really have ideas as to what Trump should do, just that he should Do Something. Of course, if he Does Something, they will criticize that. There’s nothing they won’t politicize, and the Washington Post is there to help out

Trump faces pressure to respond to coronavirus threat
Democrats, including 2020 presidential candidates Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, have argued that the president’s policies make the United States more vulnerable to an infectious disease crisis.

Of course they do

President Trump, a leading critic of the Obama White House’s handling of the Ebola outbreak in 2014, is under increasing political pressure to mount a coordinated federal response to the threat of the new strain of coronavirus — amid fears of a global health crisis with economic ramifications in an election year.

The White House has sought to tamp down criticism from Democrats in recent days by projecting an air of confidence and competence, with Trump presiding late Wednesday over an interagency briefing in the Situation Room. He also announced a new task force of senior aides to lead the government’s response, including screenings at 20 U.S. airports, the repatriation of U.S. citizens from China and efforts to develop a potential vaccine to treat the novel virus.

Sounds like a good plan. Now we’re just waiting for Democrats to complain about people being held in quarantine after they get off those planes.

[Democrats] pointed to the dismantling of a global health security team in 2018 during a reorganization of the White House’s National Security Council. And in an op-ed published in the USA Today on Monday, Biden called Trump the “worst possible leader” to oversee the government’s response, citing his call for then-President Barack Obama to implement a travel ban on West African countries during the Ebola crisis even though public health experts opposed such a move.

OK, none of that is offering a plan or solutions or ideas. Just whining

One senior administration official said Trump has been hesitant to speak out because some aides have cautioned that he could unnecessarily cause public alarm — and assured him that China is working hard to keep the virus under control. But increasingly, there is a feeling among aides that the president must say more, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private deliberations.

Another anonymous person and anonymous aids? Huh.

Meanwhile, some U.S. lawmakers have pressed for a targeted travel ban from China, which Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Okla.), a close White House ally, said in a letter to the administration was “warranted to protect Americans until we know more about the virus and the outbreak is under control.”

If he did this, Democrats would blow a gasket. Because TDS.

It’s probably a good idea Trump isn’t saying more. He does not want to start a panic, and, let’s be honest, if Trump gave advice that originates from the CDC there would be lots and lots of TDS infused Dems and #NeverTrumpers who would do the exact opposite because they’re deranged.

    To avoid errors, tRump should only recite what the medical experts tell him to say, and borrow the money to support the Deep State experts as they do their jobs.
