Why did Trump procrastinate on coronavirus for two months?
The Associated Press recently did a good roundup story about how the Trump administration procrastinated for months before acknowledging the gravity of the coronavirus situation. Why? Was he trying to squeeze a few months extra revenue out of his hotels?
Was it that he was watching Fox News and believing their spin? Was he creating a deadly right-wing media feedback loop without even realizing it?Was it so his billionaire buddies could unload all their stocks before things crashed?
Was it because he knew that I hit the economy would hurt his reelection chances? Did he think he could just push his way through this? Why did Trump delay?
It’s going to cost tens of thousands of lives and wreak massive damage to our healthcare system and the people who work in it. Why? America deserves an answer.
