If Trump is a war-time POTUS where are all weapons? Meaning Coronavirus test kits and protective gear?
Even though Donald Trump named himself a “war-time president”, that is a fair job description. Indeed, our nation is faced with an existential threat that has already killed tens of thousands of Americans.
Only two of President Trump’s predecessors, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, faced greater and more deadly threats to our nation’s very existence. Both successfully marshalled our vast productive resources and our bedrock patriotism. Understandably, many historians consider them our two greatest presidents.
But President Trump has gotten off to an exceedingly bad start dealing with the gathering crisis of the coronavirus. Indeed, at nearly every step – from initially recognizing the public health threat of the virus to using our world-class medical know-how and industrial might to produce Coronavirus test kits, face masks, protective medical gear, and ventilators — President Trump has been missing in action.
