5. He botched the handling of the coronavirus crisis
Trump has botched the handling of the coronavirus pandemic from the beginning — starting with his firing of the pandemic response team, to calling the virus a hoax, all the way to insisting the country be reopened before the proper protocols had been put in place.
Now, as of July 1, there are 2.6 million infected people in the U.S., and at least 127,400 have died.
Trump’s incompetence has led to more coronavirus losses in the United States than those lives lost in WWI. People were already disappointed with his handling of the crisis, but his claim that he asked his people “‘slow the testing down” was met with harsh criticisms. The White House claimed the president was “joking,” but it would appear that slowing down testing is exactly what the plans to do.
As Rolling Stone reported just days after the Tulsa rally, “The Department of Health and Human Services has announced it will pull funding from more than a dozen drive-through testing sites across five states, including Texas, at the end of the month.”
