Should he follow Obama's course of action with H1N1?

A week before Obama finally declaring a health emergency, (Oct. 24, 2009, which was 7 months after the virus first appeared in the USA), the CDC's tally for H1N1 in the USA was; 14-34 million people were or had been infected, 63K-153K were hospitalized and 2,500 to 6,100 had DIED.



https://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/estimate...October_17.htm

Did the fact that H1N1 came here from Mexico, have anything to do with Obunghole's lazy response?

...During one particularly memorable moment, a reporter asked Trump about a WaPo report claiming that Vice President Pence “muzzled” CDC officials like Dr. Fauci, while intimating that the administration was emulating Beijing by trying to prevent ‘bad news’ from getting out.
Fortunately, Dr. Fauci was there to rebut the claim: Which he did, with vigor.
I have never been muzzled – ever – and I’ve been doing this since the administration of Ronald Reagan. We were set up to go on some shows and when the VP took over…we had to stand down on a couple of shows and resubmitted for clearance, which we immediately got.”...

The negative assumptions by the MSM and the left of Trumps actions and motives at his every move is kinda breathtaking.
It was almost as bad ..as bad... from the right about Obama, but sheesh.

What's up with people?
"OMAMA is foreign MUSLIM racist who hates America that wants to Khalifi and BLM to kill us all...IRAN!! look look what he said look what he did there can't you SEE??!! ,
"Trump is only concerned about the stock market and wants the virus kill us all! RUSSIA!!! look look what he said look what he did there can't you SEE??!!"

everyone needs to take a freakin pill or sumthin.

I'm not the one running around with my hair on fire saying that the sky is falling. My family and I are all fine, healthy and not worried any more about the Coronovirus than we are of the common flu, which by the way kills about 50,000 people a year on average in THIS country.

But if you wish to keep listening to CNN and MSNBC tell you how bad it is and how bad Trump and his administration have been, that is your choice. All I was saying is that if you wish to buy into the fear mongering, you should hold up in your house until the threat has passed.

And by the way, Trump and his administration SHOULD do what they can to calm fears that affect the stock market and our economy. I'm not worried about getting sick from the virus, I'm more concerned with how it will affect the economy and our ability to obtain items we need to live day to day.

Yeah, instead of calling it a State of emergency, they should call it something like State of.... precaution?
