I have to respectfully disagree. Those of us who live in the NYC area and have been able to observe Trump for decades know that he is a bungling idiot.
As far as the virus, I believe him when he says he didn’t want to cause panic but he didn’t mean among us he meant the stock market. He measures his success as president by the success of the stock market. If word got out about a deadly virus and the market tanked, then he thought it would reflect badly about him. He fears being seen as a loser.
Please don’t be taken in by this moron. He thinks he’s smart and a master manipulator but the sad truth is that he is unbelievably stupid.
