The Trump administration ignored the growing pandemic warnings from China and other countries until it was too late. The Trump administration, like most Republican administrations, had been so busy dismantling what little infrastructure and government we had, it found itself woefully unable to supply or find the supplies needed once our country began having to handle COVID-19 cases ourselves. The Trump administration then attempted to both ignore it, say we were handling things, and claim that the COVID-19 pandemic would “disappear,” all while allowing more and more people to get infected, become sick, and die.
This incompetence, greed, and criminal governance has led to the United States, with all of its money and resources, to be one of the worst hit by the virus. While Donald Trump continued doing the only thing he knows how to do, which is promote the name Trump in order to pull in campaign funds, the mechanisms and resources needed to purchase and distribute vaccinations fell by the wayside. Luckily, millions of people came out to vote Donald Trump and Republican congressional figures out of office. This could not have happened at a better time as our country needs a working government that is interested in figuring out the best ways to help Americans get back to some equilibrium, and also believes that the government has a job to do such a thing.
