Trump hasn't gotten us anywhere either. He brought this country way down the toilet in a matter of months. I never heard him say or do one smart, intellengent, or unbiased thing in the year 2020. Right now, we need a good leader more than ever, but we don't have one.
And don't say Trump fixed the economy. Last time I checked, the economy was currently a hot mess thanks to a pandemic he mishandled so poorly. People are out of work and buisnesses are shutting down.
The economy was only bad during Obama's FIRST term (2008-2012). Which btw, wasn't completely HIS fault. The stock market crash occured in 2008 when Bush was technically still in office. By 2013-2015, It was slowly starting to recover, not perfect.....but getting better. By 2016, the economy was quite fine, mind you, Obama was still in office in 2016. Trump didn't begin his term until January 2017.
You have to look at Trump's presidency from day one, not just 2020, which most of which was not his fault. He decided to shut down travel even though St. Fauci didn't think it was necessary. Trump made the right call.
All of this has been rehashed on the boards over and over again.
The rest of what you said, you sound like a CNN "reporter."
Do you advise your students to research information for themselves or just follow the popular crowd and say what they say?
I only judge him based on OWN his actions and nonsense that comes out of HIS mouth during press conferences.
I've seen him play covid as a joke saying it would "magically disappear" and that he doesn't believe in lickdowns or masks. There's big difference With the way Trump acknowledges it and when people like Fauci does. Fauci doesn't lie, he's upfront about the status of the covid cases. He gave us a a fair and brutally honest warning about reopening too quickly. Unfortunally, he was 100% correct.
In the past 5 months, I've never seen an ounce of remorse or sorrow in his eyes when addressing people who've personally been affected. He's proven many times he only cares about himself and HIS reputation.
So yeah, my observations aren't based on secondary sources from magazines, but his actions on live TV.
What are you gonna do? Tell me someone "forced" him to to say all that stuff or that he was "joking"? He doesn't deserve to have his actions defended by anyone. He's responsible for his role in this, and should accept it like a mature grown up.
You're not paying attention but believe what you want.
"he doesn't believe in lickdowns"
This time I believe you made a typo but it did make me laugh. 😅
"Fauci doesn't lie."
That's a lie.
Magazines? Who said anything about magazines?
You can believe and defend your precious president all you want. But every sane person in the world knows he fucked up. He could lie, your could lie, but deep down we all know he did.
This proves he's not a true leader or a man. A leader takes responibility and admits to their wrong doings. He just makes excuses and plays the victim.
But go ahead. Defend your precious little "president".
"...not just 2020, which most of which was not his fault."
There is a major crisis in the U.S. about every 10 years. It's the president's job to show strong leadership and lead America out of the crisis.
It is his fault because:
1. He fired the American doctor in China whose only job was to alert us if any viruses or bacteria mutated and threatened us.
2. Trump ignored health and national security advisors warnings for months.
3.Trump downplayed coronavirus for months calling it a hoax.
4. Trump refuses to create a national plan.
5. Trump repeatedly attacks his own health advisor and rarely attends meetings
6. Trump has called for people not to wear masks nor social distance which is the opposite of what health officials say
7. Trump held rallies which spread the virus and killed Herman Cain.
8. Trump stopped Chinese flights too late and it was too little. New York City cases came for EUROPE, not China.
9. Trump suggests cures like injecting disinfectant and hydroxychloroquine which are dangerous and don't work against covid-19.
10. Trump only began to pay attention to Covid-19 when the stock market dropped. The deaths meant nothing to him.
You sound like a Fox News "reporter". Are you researching the information for yourself or just follow the popular crowd and say what they say?
