No one has handled it great, but a few have done relatively OK: Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan NOT CHINA. Anyway, the numbers will tell the story... the death toll in America will be catastrophically higher than anywhere else...and we were one of the last to get it. We did nothing but feed the American people a steady diet of lies and idiocy. China is worse because they caused deaths outside of China, but America's totally unnecessary death tolls are a crime of their own. "Back seat driver"? Ha, that's a laugh. There is no FRONT SEAT driver. That's the problem. Don't blame me for seeing the retaining wall we're headed to from the back seat.
But go ahead, cheer on your Trump Death Cult. Anyway, nothing positive will come out of this. The economic and political powers that be in the world will use this to consolidate their power even further.
"done relatively OK: Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan "
All but Japan have a tiny population compared to USA. The only useful stats are per capita.
They still did extremely well considering their population density and the sheer number of Chinese people and others flying through their countries China in the early days. Many Chinese were travelling to those countries during the Chinese New Year, so they did spectacularly, actually. Besides, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong have a total combined population of about 215 million, which is not that far off of America's population of 327 million. Each of those countries didn't do exactly the same thing, but whatever they did was much more effective than what we have done so far. That's a fact. Don't worry, America will fail in epic fashion, so you will get your numbers soon.

Those are Asian countries. They're used to follow orders. That has its problems, but in this case it's clearly a strength.
Western modern "multicultural" countries are much more chaotic and less law abiding.
That's a difference between Asian cultures and multi-ethnical tribal western ones. Pinning it on Trump is just ridiculous. Enough with that stupid "orange man bad".
Singapore is a multi-ethnic country. So is Hong Kong.
The different ethnic groups are quite similar between them. Muslims in Singapore give some trouble, as it happens in China, but they're under strict control.
It's like US before XXth century. It was basically English and Germans. It worked because even being different ethnic groups, they had a strong common ground. There's barely any common ground with modern massive immigration, neither in US or in Europe.
Every country and every location has different obstacles. The US is the wealthiest country in the world and because of our booming Trump economy our citizens have the most wealth and freedom to afford to move around more and this spreads the disease quicker.
Take Wuhan. They goto work, they go home. They have no lives.
You’re giving zero evidence to support your point of view. Who was calling for the US to do more before March 15? No one. Not the media. Not the DNC leadership.
Fortunately Trump blocked flights from China months before the DNC called for any action. Their solution was to tell people to socialize and hug Chinese people. We’d have 100k dead if we had followed their advice.
We're doing far worse at this point in our outbreak than any other country we can assume is mostly telling the truth was doing at the same point in their's. This is based on the infection rate curve and death rates (which can easily be confirmed at the Johns Hopkins website). This leaves out Iran and Italy, because we many never know the true numbers in those two places.
Then I guess we should lock up Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, all the Democrat presidential candidates, and the Democrat media. Because none of them said a peep about CV19 until mid March.
On top of it the Democrat party/media has been distracting the country with corrupt investigations that couldn’t produce a single piece of evidence. This would be the Russia collusion investigation. Brett Kavenaugh investigations. And the impeachment that the Democrats purposely drug out for months longer than needed. While we could’ve been dealing with CV19 last fall.
While we’re busy throwing leadership in jail we can toss Governors Newsom, Cuomo, Inslee in the can too.
Fortunately we have a constitution and rule of law that protects innocent people from being thrown in jail because ignorant Democrats like yourself get their feels hurt.
You want to put Democrats in jail because you know they can't be beaten at the ballot box in November.
"And the impeachment that the Democrats purposely drug out for months longer than needed. While we could’ve been dealing with CV19 last fall."
Yes, if not for the communist democrat party, King SuperTrump would have personally flailed the virus to death with his tiny penis BEFORE IT WAS EVEN DISCOVERED
