(D)wTDS thinks the system was perfect under Obama to elevate Obama & vilify his successor, when it's the same CDC & personnel running it for 3-4 decades. There are certain situation that no amount of preparation can control. Anthony Fauci wasn't prepared for what was coming. In Jan. 21st he assured the public on NEWSMAX that the Wuhan Virus is not a threat to America. In Feb. 17th, he again said on air that the danger from the Wuhan Virus was miniscule, then late Mar. suggested quarantining the country for a year then early April projection model was over estimated. Every living thing on the planet has some disease & as humans convert 85% or the planet's forest cover for human use & settlement, diseases have nowhere to go but where the humans are. A large contribution to unpreparedness is the infrastructure to manufacture devices & PPE was shipped out of the USA.
Fauci & Birx have served for 4 decades, but don't know a thing about a new corona virus they haven't observed & studied. CDC had no choice but to copy how China & the rest of Asia handles this new COVID-19 Virus that is relatively unknown to the world. Fauci studied Ebola for 3 1/2 decades before a dent of 1%-5% survival rate was possible. Unlike COVID-19 prevention of Ebola even HIV is not to get bitten, licked, or raped by Gorillas, Chimps, Baboons, Capuchins, simply cook & eat the bush meat very well done. Melanesians of Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea & Indonesians hunt & eat wild bats very well done. Americans eat Black & Brown Bears, Racoons, Nutria, Porcupines, even cougars than waste meat, but if Koreans, Vietnamese, Pilipino, Indonesian, Angolan, Nigerians, Kenyans, & tribal indigenous South American natives eat dogs, bats, & tarantulas its a crime of the century. Even eating Sun, Moon, & Spectacled Bears are a taboo for snooty European descent. Developing countries or continent is still awash with wet markets. The US had lots of wet markets up until after WWII when Birds Eye's frozen food took off making wet markets in the US a rarity. For one to acquire fresh meat now days in the US is to hunt wild game or raise live stock in farms & ranches.
The government under Trump began working on a vaccine BEFORE the first case in the US. Obama 6 days AFTER.
Trump had a test ready to go three days after the first case. Obama 13 days.
Trump declared coronavirus a public health emergency 9 days later. Obama 15 days.
Trump declared a national emergency 53 days later. Obama 204 days later.
Trump was warning everyone about the coronavirus 15 days after the first case. No warning from Obama at that point.
The country hit 1m cases of H1N1 71 days after the first case. On the 78th day there were 367,000 cases of corona in the US .
The first vaccines started getting tested 56 days later under Trump. It was 98 days for Obama.
Obama and no quarantine. Obama also used up all of the N95 masks and didn't replace them.
Obama would have allowed every major city in each state to become an epicenter & spreader through every entertainment arena & every mode of transportation because travel bans are 'racist'.
2009 H1N1 swine flu was just slightly different from the 1918 original H1N1 Spanish flu. It was weaker than the original 1918. Not much alarming concern came into light because it wasn't entirely new. Thousands of deaths were anticipated from H#N# variants annually since 1918. There were 4 pandemic flus before 2009 & vaccines for H#N# variants were and are being develop year after year.
COVID-19 is entirely new, extremely contagious & no vaccine. 85% of the infected people who either didn't become ill or just got mildly ill similar to a common cold (There are 4 harmless corona viruses that causes the common cold) enabled COVID-19 to easily and quickly spreads as those infected think they only have a cold. No one knew a thing about the new COVID-19 virus, until at risk people started dying in great numbers prompting the expediency to study & record data. 10%-14% seriously to critically ill are recovering from COVID-18. With no drug or vaccine to combat it. CDC had no choice but to copy how China & the rest of Asia handles this new COVID-19 Virus that is relatively unknown. It might be on the road of being as fatal as the 1918 Influenza or Spanish Flu (500 million infection 50 million death toll out of 1.8 Billion world population). However, very unlikely since 1918 Influenza killed mostly healthy people & more numerous without a vaccine. The only way COVID-19 can attempt killing 50 million people in 1 year is because there are 8 billion people in the world now.
The Administration & CDC were monitoring the outbreak in Wuhan at the time POTUS was being impeached. The Admin sent & requested for US CDC Scientists to help, but they were blocked as proud Chinese Government wanted to handle the situation themselves & didn't want to lose face receiving help from an adversary. China did a good job containing SARS from infecting the world, but was ill prepared to handle containment of a highly infectious respiratory disease COVID-19 while combating Africanized Swine Flu occurring throughout China. COVID-19 may be impossible to contain in a world connected by travel & transport where every day life requires social interactions in close proximity where COVID-19 air droplets can easily spread & infect in which the world was not prepared for.
Unlike Ebola, 99% lethal in mortality, is transmitted by eating rare to medium well Gorilla or any African primate/monkey bush meat or primate/monkey saliva, blood, urine from a bite attack or spat, sprinkled or sprayed onto an open wound, eye, mouth, anus or birth canal similar with HIV transmission. It took 3 1/2 decades of study & data to put a dent on the mortality rate & procured knowledge in preparation to prevention & containment long before Obama came into picture. In terms of contagiousness COVID-19 is far more contagious than Ebola as transmission is through air droplets inhaled or touched from a surface having contaminated hand touching orifices on the face.
Since the pandemic is affecting the world nations' economy globally, the U.S. has the chance to rebound on top economically. 1st world countries have a lot to lose economically, & 3rd world countries have little to lose economically. The economies may have reset, but 1st world countries have the means with their infrastructures in logistic, manufacturing, service, retail, resources: chemical, fuel, ores, academics, engineering & science for their economies to bounce back. 3rd world economies' chances of surpassing 1st world economies are non existent due to crimes, corruption, & brain drain of specialized skills.
As the country prepare for a massive exhaustion of the health care system & 70%-80% of the economy shutting down to combat the COVID-19 pandemic due to CDC recommendation social distancing that was initially 2 weeks but extended to 4 more weeks sending the economy in peril that may plunge into a depression, not only for the US, but the G8 countries, if not the G20 countries, as well following the same means of combating the pandemic. A nationwide economic shutdown from a pandemic or warfare is when socialism takes a foot hold & eventually take over. Their Green New Deal will shape America's economy in line with Venezuela & Cuba were bureaucrats control the economy & the profits. Everyone will either be working for the government assigned jobs that is needed, or unemployed on dilapidated apartment in disrepair.
Senate & House (D)s are stuffing what ever pork they can in the relief bills that didn't involved the pandemic crisis for their special interest. It is the chance for (D) representative bodies who has the power of the purse to exploit this pandemic for their special interest. Brace for massive high inflation & taxes when this pandemic is over. (D) congress wants to spend & print money up to a quarter Quadrillion, if not a Quadrillion, copying the Zimbabwean, if not Venezuelan model of printing endless money that inflation renders useless where $1 is as high as Trillion in Zimbabwe & Venezuela currency.

Yes, I'd definitely say so. Only now, weeks into the pandemics initial spread into the U.S., has he taken action–and even then, it seems minimal. He initially denied its existence, promoted racism and xenophobia by calling COVID-19 the "Chinese virus", and decided not to accept help from other countries, which the U.S. desperately needs.

Actually it goes back further than that. When the USSR fell we had a peace dividend and cut military spending. George HW Bush had all the civil defense shelters turned over to the cities and counties. Those shelters were full of food, water and various supplies including medical supplies. The cities and counties dumped out the water, sold the food to pig farmers and trashed all the supplies. So lets put blame on the city and county leaders for that. Then you had Bush II who started building up a pandemic supply. Then came Obama and Trump and neither one of them did anything to increase the supply. So lets blame Obama and Trump too.

Trump had a very in character series of exchanges at yesterday's briefing that highlight's the fundamental concept of his presidency which is to relentlessly bash and undo everything Obama did.
He was all miffed about the HHS IG report suggesting a shortage of supplies across US hospitals that reporters were leveraging in their questions to Trump. As Trump hates IGs that actually do their job and this report was a counter narrative to everything he's saying he first asked the reporter who the IG was. When the reporter didn't know off the top of his head Trump moved on.
Then the reporter came back and said who it was and Trump moved the goalposts and asked which admin she was from. Reporter said she worked in the Obama admin but was appointed by Trump to her position just a couple months ago. Once the reporter mentioned that she worked in the Obama admin Trump got all nutjob and said 'ah see you didn't say that, that's why you're fake news!'. Trump's entire criticism of the IG report is based on the fact that she had worked in the Obama administration and therefore must be hyper biased and cannot be trusted.

The gender studies and liberal art departments of universities might well be the only education system where students actually come out dumber than they went in.

The truth is You can never fully prepare for a pandemic. We could have been more prepared, but this is no where near as bad as they tried to make it out to be. Bill Gates while not an epidemiologist, has an amazing skill for analyzing data and trends. He is thinking more like 35,000-45,000 deaths with no COVID return in the Fall.
