Democrats have ruthlessly attacked President Trump for virtually everything he has done but one thing is always lacking… evidence.
The Marxist media dutifully reports the ad hominem attacks without presenting any facts to support their criticisms.
Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, Democrats have been wildly critical of President Trump’s response to the threat as woefully inadequate. As Rahm Emanuel once said…
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that [is] it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not before.”
Given that this is an election year, coupled with the possibility that U.S. attorney John Durham may be preparing to hand down indictments and the DOJ is investigating Democrat corruption in Ukraine, taking down President Trump becomes more important than praising his administration’s response to this health crisis.
But, facts are facts and nothing the Democrats have offered comes close to the quick and decisive actions President Trump ordered.
In instances like the one surrounding the Coronavirus, buying time by slowing down the spread of the disease to minimize the number of people infected, until an effective treatment plan can be discovered. Trump did that.
With Democrats screaming racism, President Trump had the stones to close the border, the single most effective way to limit the spread of any disease.
He ordered a travel ban and restrictions on January 31st and assembled a task force of the most qualified people in the United States. Remember, this was virtually as soon as China reported the outbreak.
What were the TDS-stricken Demonrats doing while President Trump was acting? They were trying to impeach him on bullschiff charges.
Keep in mind the resistance Donald Trump met when he called for an uncoupling of manufacturing from China. Now we learn that 90% of the raw materials for pharmaceuticals, and a similar percentage of medical supplies and equipment are manufactured in China.
Where do you think those products will be directed if the coronavirus becomes a legitimate pandemic? When Trump talked about the national security aspects of uncoupling from China, Democrats and RINOs resisted and criticized him for this.
Because of President Trump’s quick and decisive actions the spread of the virus was minimized inside the United States when compared to other developed nations.
That is the best we can realistically hope for while our great research scientists find the proper treatment plan and develop a safe vaccine.
Doctor Marc Siegel is a professor of medicine at NYU’s Langone Medical Center and appears regularly on Fox News as a medical correspondent. He agrees that President Trump’s response was exactly what was required.
Dr. Siegel was interviewed on Breitbart radio:
Dr. Siegel: “The task force are really top players.”
“They’ve been doing exactly what they’re supposed to be doing. [They are] restricting travel, isolating patients who are sick and, trying to cut down on contact. It’s a very hard thing to do when people are pouring in from all over the world.”
“We’re relying on China for 90 percent of our ingredients for pharmaceuticals. That hopefully will change as a result of this because we’re going to end up with tremendous shortages of basic drugs, including antibiotics and blood pressure medication if this continues much longer in Wuhan.”
“This is a wake-up call that we must make more of our pharmaceuticals here in the United States.”
Asked about the hate-Trump media’s reporting on the virus: “They’re certainly not helping because they’re hyping, and the hyping leads to hysteria.”
“I’ve been handling these emerging contagions for about 20 years now, and I have to tell you, I’ve never seen one handled better.” – Dr. Marc Siegel
