The president is making a desperate case to show he acted quickly. He is describing a list of measures clearly inadequate to the crisis we faced. And, worth noting, we STILL do not have a fraction of the testing we require. STILL do not have the hospital support we require.
We STILL do not have the support for workers dislocated by the disease we require. We STILL do not have the data require to manage the outbreak. We STILL do not have the health care coverage for victims who can't afford it.
The president STILL has not retracted his support for unproven and dangerous drugs in response to the disease. His "closing" of the country did not close the country to the Chinese (40K entered after) & ignored the threat from elsewhere in the world (most NY cases came from EU).
This entire Trump monologue veers from deceptions to lies & is in response to the NY Times article we discuss in our special episode with @SangerNYT and @shearm. Listen to them instead of this torrential outpouring of misleading statements from Trump. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/special-episode-inside-trumps-failure-to-respond-to/id1245002955?i=1000471359104 …
