Everything the leftist schiffs have tried to bring down President Donald J. Trump has failed and they are still firing blanks.

They have no idea who Donald Trump really is. They only focus on the scandals in his life. And most everyone on this site would have a scandal in their lives, if their lives were public. Some of you are cheating your wife or husband, as you throw off on the Pres. Some of you abuse your wife, either mentally or physically, or both.
And then you come on GW and throw off on the Pres. And all of you are in favor of murdering babies, some of you, even after they're born alive. That's much worse than any Trump scandal.

They are missing an opportunity to watch the workings of the brain of a man who truly believes when he said.. "Impossible is just a starting point". Remember that Saudi Prince said when he met Trump.. "With this man anything is possible".

They don't know or understand the influence Dr. Norman Vincent Peale had on the way Donald Trump thinks. Peale was Trump's minister in his church. He listened to him for years. Peale wrote the world wide best seller, "The power of positive thinking".
Trump doesn't even allow negative thoughts to enter his head. Trump never tosses and turns at night in a quandary about what to do. Trump really hates wasting time.. he immediately starts looking to the people who will have the answers.

I watch Trump, he is very interesting to watch... He chooses his words carefully when he is sending out a message he intends to expand on later , and you goofs come on here and show me you didn't really get what he just said.
I know his voters get it because I read their comments. and they are following everything he is saying, and even have a good idea of the next step Trump will be taking.

You commies are really on the wrong side of what the people want for this country. You saw what happened to Sanders, who you couldn't wait to vote for him He is done. And you are stuck with Biden. At least until they find away to get rid of him.
You're also on the wrong side of history. You and what you want for American will not happen. While you try to get Trump voter to turn away from Trump.... all you have to offer to replace him is a senile old confused Joe Biden.

Don't you see the humor in that? You want the people to turn away from A Very Stable Genius, and vote for a Senile, Confused, Old Man Joe Biden.

Actually, it's like being in a firefight and realizing you weren't issued a gun.

I do like the comparison. Thanks, Foxy!

At the end of the day, American leaders at every level assumed that China and the WHO was telling the truth. They lied then and contort lie now. I wish they would have told the truth.

Gascon do you really believe Trump is worried about winning the 2020 election? And who do you think can beat him? Sleepy Joe? Commrade Bernie? or that new unannounced hopeful nobody knows? WHO

When the definitive history of the coronavirus pandemic is written, the date 20 January 2020 is certain to feature prominently. It was on that day that a 35-year-old man in Washington state, recently returned from visiting family in Wuhan in China, became the first person in the US to be diagnosed with the virus.


In the two months since that fateful day, the responses to coronavirus displayed by the US and South Korea have been polar opposites.

One country acted swiftly and aggressively to detect and isolate the virus, and by doing so has largely contained the crisis. The other country dithered and procrastinated, became mired in chaos and confusion, was distracted by the individual whims of its leader, and is now confronted by a health emergency of daunting proportions.


Within a week of its first confirmed case, South Korea's disease control agency had summoned 20 private companies to the medical equivalent of a war-planning summit and told them to develop a test for the virus at lightning speed. A week after that, the first diagnostic test was approved and went into battle, identifying infected individuals who could then be quarantined to halt the advance of the disease.

The US response tells a different story. Two days after the first diagnosis in Washington state, Donald went on air on CNBC and bragged: "We have it totally under control. It's one person coming from China. It's going to be just fine."

It was not until 29 February, more than a month after the Journal article and almost six weeks after the first case of coronavirus was confirmed in the country that the Trump administration put that advice into practice. Laboratories and hospitals would finally be allowed to conduct their own Covid-19 tests to speed up the process.

Those missing four to six weeks are likely to go down in the definitive history as a cautionary tale of the potentially devastating consequences of failed political leadership

We have more cases then China and rising!

"The US response will be studied for generations as a textbook example of a disastrous, failed effort," Ron Klain, who spearheaded the fight against Ebola in 2014, told a Georgetown university panel recently. "What's happened in Washington has been a fiasco of incredible proportions."

Jeremy Konyndyk, who led the US government's response to international disasters at USAid from 2013 to 2017, frames the past six weeks in strikingly similar terms. He told the Guardian: "We are witnessing in the United States one of the greatest failures of basic governance and basic leadership in modern times."

In Konyndyk's analysis, the White House had all the information it needed by the end of January to act decisively. Instead, Trump repeatedly played down the severity of the threat, blaming China for what he called the "Chinese virus" and insisting falsely that his partial travel bans on China and Europe were all it would take to contain the crisis.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates the diagnostic tests and will control any new treatments for coronavirus, has also shown vulnerabilities. The agency recently indicated that it was looking into the possibility of prescribing the malaria drug chloroquine for coronavirus sufferers, even though there is no evidence it would work and some indication it could have serious side-effects.

The decision dismayed experts, given that Trump has personally pushed the unproven remedy on a whim. It smacked of the wave of anti-science sentiment sweeping federal agencies under this presidency.

As the former senior official put it: "We have the FDA bowing to political pressure and making decisions completely counter to modern science."

On 30 January, as the World Health Organization was declaring a global emergency, Donald said: "We only have five people. Hopefully, everything's going to be great."

On 24 February, Donald claimed "the coronavirus is very much under control in the USA". The next day, Nancy Messonnier, the CDC's top official on respiratory diseases, took the radically different approach of telling the truth, warning the American people that "disruption to everyday life might be severe".

To date, the Trump administration has supplied 400 ventilators to New York. By Cuomo's estimation, 30,000 are needed.

"You want a pat on the back for sending 400 ventilators?" Cuomo scathingly asked on Tuesday. "You pick the 26,000 who are going to die because you only sent 400 ventilators."

"We are seeing the emergence of 50-state anarchy, because of a total vacuum of federal leadership. It's absurd that thinktanks and Twitter are providing more actionable guidance in the US than the federal government, but that's where we are."

Now only were they pushing their sham impeachment.,. Polosi was still encouraging people to visit Chinatown three weeks after Trump had banned flights from China.

Jan 31 - President Trump banned flights from China.
Feb. 5 - Democrats blasted President Trump for his China travel ban.
Feb 24 - Pelosi was pushing tourism to Chinatown.
March 13 - NY Mayor DeBlasio encourages New Yorkers to go about their daily lives as usual.

Pelosi was pushing her sham impeachment in early February.

Chuck Schumer called President Trump a zenophobe for his China ban.

Who the **** cares? When you are in the middle of battle, you don't worry about what went wrong yesterday. You focus on the immediate and going forward. After it's all over, then you can go back and analyze if things could have been done differently, given the data that was available at the time. The fact that you are freaking out over this shows you don't care what is happening now, you just want to make this political

Could it be our government is putting the economy before people lives? Could it be the reason New York is having so many cases due to the stock exchange, air travel from other countries, busy streets, subways, etc.? Wilkes County is one of the best places to be right now, could change with attitudes. TRUMP IS WORRIED ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND HIS NOVEMBER ELECTION. Italy is shocked to see us walking around without masks and gloves, this is why it's spreading. We are brainwashed thinking our health care system is the best in the world. We are way behind. WE HAVE NO MASK, [IS WHY THEY SAID NOT NEEDED].

Using your logic Smonk.....is the reason they have the most deaths because they are doing the most testing??????

BTW the NCDHHS recommends testing only for seriously ill patients. Anyone with mild symptoms is encouraged to stay home and self isolate. Many other states are following this example. There reasoning is if you are not infected with Covid 19 and go for testing you could expose yourself to it. On the other side, if you do have it and go for testing with only mild symptoms you are exposing others to it who might have a worse reaction to than you do.

What actual actions did Cuomo take early on to slow the spread? He was even late closing schools.

Why do you think you are seeing those numbers?

Oh could it be that Gov Cuomo is TESTING,TESTING and TESTING?

Do you not understand that?
The U.S. is weeks behind where we should . "That means we don't have a handle on how widespread COVID-19 is here. We could be missing hundreds, if not thousands, of cases."

Actually if it weren't for New York the U.S. wouldn't have that many cases.


Maybe THAT'S were the failing is!!!!!!
