For you, banning Chinese nationals wasnít enough. However, thatís all it took for Joe to call him racist and for Nancy to mock him by encouraging people to go out to the bars and go eat Chinese food.
Powerful Democrats werenít supporting the President, yet you wanted him to shut everything down in January. We are all free to Monday morning quarterback this situation, and for you, Trump hasnít done anything right......ever!
You realise that China wasn't the only country at the time who had had a massive coronavirus outbreak, right? This wasn't he having the foresight to do it before it got anywhere else. Europe was kicking off in a big way, the UK wasn't far behind that. The issue is he decides that only Chinese people were banned from coming in or out of China. Anyone else was fine. Why the delay in banning flights from Europe? And then it was another week before he said the same about the UK. The evidence (infection and death rates being higher than any other country even though they had a lot more warning and time to put a lid on it) is showing that Trump has failed spectacularly in handling this.
If you can't see the discrepancy in that then I'm sorry but you're beyond help.
Btw I don't think I've said about putting a lockdown in January anywhere.
