No matter what decisions President Trump makes, be it protecting Americans from terrorists or adding around 4 million more jobs to the workplace, the left fiercely criticizes him.
With more Americans having jobs now than ever before in history, what the president has achieved is remarkable, the list of accomplishments is too long to mention here.
President Trump has defended his handling of the COVID-19 outbreak in America, as the institutional left attempt to politicize the whole issue, praying for a stock market crash that could affect his chances at re-election. Even to the point of calling the coronavirus the “Trumpvirus,” as published in The New York Times.
Its publication comes only a month after an investigation by the Washington Free Beacon found, “China Daily, an official mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, has published hundreds of propaganda articles designed to look like ordinary news stories in some of America’s most influential newspapers,” which includes the Times.
Sky News host James Morrow points out the radical left is hoping for a “mass coronavirus catastrophe” as they desperately grasp at any straw to try and stop the groundswell of voters sure to re-elect the president.
Morrow said the left blames “every hangnail and stubbed toe on the orange man in the White House.”
Of note, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden and Mike Bloomberg accused President Trump of waiting too long after the virus outbreak in China to act on it.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wants the money going toward border protection to be reassigned to help fight the virus elsewhere, reported BPR.
Hey @SenWarren, you insufferable crone, we need resources at the border to make sure we don’t have folks sneaking over with this Wuhan flu causing an epidemic at the southern border. How incredibly dense can you be???
Seriously, stop politicizing threats to American lives!!! https://t.co/ys2uvObB9K

Portions of the border wall the president has been insistent upon building are also working as a line of defense against the infection.
“Repelling people at the border prevents them from transmitting coronavirus inside the country. Airlines and governments worldwide are taking similar measures. As a result, contagion is slowed and lives are saved,” said Lew Jan Olowski of the Immigration Reform Law Institute.
“The first line of defense against coronavirus is the border. Not just figuratively. Any national border is, by definition, a literal line of defense,” he noted.
According to the World Health Organization, worldwide there have been 89,071 confirmed cases of coronavirus that have resulted in 3,044 deaths, with just 129 of them outside of Mainland China. The United States has reported two deaths in the last few days.
The president has acted swiftly to reduce risks to the United States,—stopping air travel from an infected nation, increasing screenings, involuntarily quarantine of those infected with the virus when they were repatriated, and immediately looking to find a vaccine.
Cast your memory back to April of 2009, the swine flu, H1N1 became a pandemic. Barack Obama waited for six months after the swine flu had infected millions of Americans and killed more than 1,000 people in the United States before declaring it a public health emergency, “Since the H1N1 flu pandemic began in April, millions of people in the United States have been infected, at least 20,000 have been hospitalized and more than 1,000 have died, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” reported CNN at the time.
According to Virology Journal, the 2009 H1N1 came into the United States from Mexico: The swine-origin influenza A (H1N1) virus that appeared in 2009 and was first found in human beings in Mexico, is a reassortant with at least three parents. Six of the genes are closest in sequence to those of H1N2 triple-reassortant influenza viruses isolated from pigs in North America around 1999-2000.
So increasing border crossings might not seem such a bad idea from President Trump to stem the flow of infections into the United States.
The American Journal of Clinical Pathology reports that this coronavirus (COVID-19) was first seen in late December: On December 30, 2019, scientists in China found “a cluster of patients with pneumonia of unknown etiology was observed in Wuhan, China, and reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) China bureau in Beijing. A week later, January 7, 2020, a new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was isolated from these patients.”
As a comparison between the Obama administration and the Trump administration, by Jan. 31, 2020, President Trump had declared a public health emergency and began restricting U.S. access to noncitizens from China.Flights filled with U.S. citizens who were in Wuhan were brought to America and those people were quarantined on U.S. military bases for two weeks.
The Obama administration waited six months after the swine flu had taken hold of the world, with millions of U.S. citizens infected and 1,000 lives lost, before it declared flu a public health emergency.
