Coronavirus politics – Trump leads while opponents stay on attack
Democrats and their liberal media allies realize President Trump and his administration are doing an amazing job. They’re terrified that the daily briefings will demonstrate his bold leadership to voters.

President Trump acted on this issue and took early steps such as getting the commission working on it and travel banning from China while democrats complained about the ethnic and racial make up of the panel and belittling Vice President Pence while calling the President names for the travel ban.  All democrats cared about was impeaching our President.  The lamestream has made no pretense of objectivity attacking our President non stop since he upset the witch in the 2016 election.  Fortunately in the daily briefing format the people see that first hand and how he deals with their rudeness and contempt for him.

President Trump  is doing everything in his power to ensure the health and safety of the American people during the coronavirus pandemic. While the president is working tirelessly to save American lives as COVID-19 sweeps across the country, Democrats and members of the liberal media remain committed to destroying his presidency.

To mitigate the impact of the  coronavirus pandemic, the president took prudent early actions that saved thousands of American lives. At the end of January, Trump promptly restricted travel from China and assembled the White House Coronavirus Task Force to manage our country’s response to the health emergency. In recognizing the seriousness of coronavirus, the president put Vice President Mike Pence in charge as the task force leader to work in tandem with medical and health care experts and department heads.

To keep the American people fully informed, President Trump and task force members are holding daily press briefings. These briefings include extended question and answer periods with the media in order to ensure Americans are fully aware of the latest information on the  coronavirus  outbreak. The president wants to guarantee the American people have the most up to date information and stay calm as we get through this public health crisis.

DAVID BOSSIE: CORONAVIRUS SIDELINES BIDEN – IS DEM'S FRONT-RUNNER STATUS ABOUT TO CHANGE?

The president’s task force implores Americans to limit social interaction, self-isolate and practice good hygiene as some of the best practices to help combat and slow the spread of the virus. In addition to saving lives, these actions will help mitigate concerns about our health care system being overwhelmed by a surge in hospital admissions.

The Food and Drug Administration is responding to President Trump’s demands to fast track drugs and devices aimed at tackling the pandemic, including approvals that will protect health care workers, improve patient outcomes, and provide diagnostic tools for rapid coronavirus testing.

Unfortunately, Democrats and the anti-Trump media are exploiting the crisis to demonize the president.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told CNN that President Trump has “been very slow to act,” over the virus and that “many of the things he says are simply not accurate.”

Following her attempt to load the $2 trillion relief bill with left-wing agenda items, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., accused the president of being responsible for the loss of life. During a CNN interview, Pelosi said, “As the president fiddles, people are dying.”

Democratic strategist James Carville criticized Trump’s press briefings in an NBC News commentary, writing, he “...mixes fact, fiction and hyperbole.”

The anti-Trump media agenda is on full display over the president handling of the coronavirus crisis.

In a bizarre turn of events, some TV hosts want less news by calling for the end of the daily press briefings.

Democrats and their liberal media allies realize President Trump and his administration are doing an amazing job. They’re terrified that the daily briefings will demonstrate his bold leadership to voters. 

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said on her show that if President Trump “keeps lying” that “all of us should stop broadcasting it,” while her colleague Chris Hayes called the press briefings “dangerous.”

The Washington Post story about reporters refusing to attend the daily briefings claims that “reporters are keeping their distance because they are concerned about the health risks,” and are not protesting or “attempting to silence” President Trump.

CNN went as far as not to air President Trump’s comments during the March 31 press briefing.

Ironically, there was a time when the media demanded daily White House press briefings but now, they’ve changed their tune.

Democrats and their liberal media allies realize President Trump and his administration are doing an amazing job. They’re terrified that the daily briefings will demonstrate his bold leadership to voters.

Recent public opinion polls prove the public is responding to Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus crisis. A Gallup poll found 60 percent of Americans approve of the president coronavirus response efforts and an ABC/WashingtonPost poll showed 66 percent of Americans were confident with the federal government’s ability to handle the virus.

Moreover, according to the Real Clear Politics average poll, Trump’s approval rating is on the rise to hitting a record high.

The bottom line is that President Trump’s enemies are afraid that his incredible leadership during this national crisis will result in his reelection this November. Democrats and the media are willing to do anything in order to prevent that from happening — even if comes at the expense of the American people.

China's  efforts to rebrand itself as a global leader focused on humanitarian relief amid the  coronavirus  outbreak has hit a major snag and perhaps revealed Beijing's true intentions behind their public relations blitz.

After telling the world that it would donate masks, face guards and testing equipment to  Italy , China quietly backtracked and sold the Mediterranean country desperately-needed medical equipment, according to a report.

What's worse is that the personal protective equipment (PPE) China forced Italy to buy was actually the same PPE Italy donated to China before  coronavirus rushed its own shores and killed nearly 16,000 people.

CORONAVIRUS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

"Before the virus hit Europe, Italy sent tons of PPE to China to help China protect its own population. China then has sent Italian PPE back to Italy -- some of it, not even all of it ... and charged them for it," a senior Trump administration official  told The Spectator. 

Beijing taking advantage of Italy's generosity and then flipping it into something more sinister is just the latest example of the country's misdeeds amid the global outbreak.

Thousands of other supplies and testing kits China has sold to other countries at marked-up prices have turned out to be defective.

Hi Buzz,

Is that Xi Jinping leading the people of China?  One must surmise it is as they're the only people in the world buying his line of shit.  Oh, and the asswipes at WHO that he has in his pocket.

I honestly believe that he really doesn’t understand how angry at China most of North America and Europe are over all that has happened and how it did. I also understand what he has to say due to their social credit system in that country and how it affects people there based on their internet content.

LOL. Not what I meant, of course - I didn't think I would have to identify him since it was a response to the seed article about Trump.  To be absolutely clear, the Pied Piper is meant to be Trump leading his minions into the river.

Oh yes, I understand how angry America and SOME in Europe are and I also understand how necessary it is for them all to finger-point and blame and criticize in order to deflect from their own incompetence in dealing with the virus.  As it happens, I posted long ago and more than once my personal anger at the original coverup of the whistleblower, and a huge part of the Chinese citizens did so as well on the internet.  I doubt they will all be arrested and incarcerated for doing so, but it caused Xi Jinping to discipline and fire the original Wuhan police and officials who silenced the whistleblower, and Xi Jinping posted a "solemn apology" for its happening, not that that did any good.  Although at least I know that I'm not perfect and may not be right all the time, but I find it amusing that those on this site who call me a "commie sympathizer" or "comrade" when in fact I (and my wife and her family and our friends) are entirely apolitical here, besides the fact that I have been for more than 40 years a supporter of the Canadian and Ontario Conservative parties, and I AM NOT NOW NOR HAVE I EVER BEEN A COMMUNIST.  I doubt that the "social credit" system has passed limited local experimentation, and in any event I'm not afraid of it because I'm not a firebrand or a radical or a trouble-maker or a Tianenmen Tank Man, but just live a quiet comfortable happy life.  I'd venture to say I'm a lot happier than my NT detracters these days - so bitch about me all you want, because I really don't give a damn.  In fact those of you who have done so have pushed me over the line from being right wing on this site to being more to the left, some who have been my friends are no longer so, although it has not affected my feelings about Canadian politics wherein I am still a conservative and wish that Trudeau would be defeated by a lack of confidence vote in Parliament.

Just don't compare him to Winnnie the Pooh. That's get's you life in a Chinese concentration camp.  (But they are really nice  "re eductation" camps, or so I'm told)

Lot of Germans felt that way too in the 1930s.  THEY weren't being inconvenienced, so no reason to be a trouble maker.

Are you faulting me for not standing on a soap box and shouting to a crowd that they should revolt against the government?  Why don't you come here and do that yourself, since you are so concerned about the Chinese people.

I have never called you a communist nor will I ever.  I understand how careful or a political one would have to be to live there long term thus I could never survive in that society because I could never be silent about my political or religious beliefs.  I could live for now in Hong Hong or Taiwan as some of my in laws once did because they would tolerate me. As to Trump’s supposed incompetence, his big mistake was believing what the WHO and Chinese government officials told him for too long.

Throughout this national emergency President Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he’s the right person to lead the nation.

From the beginning we have seen Trump’s best attributes.

Some time ago, the Quinnipiac  poll  asked Americans about the president’s best attributes.

The public said he was a “strong person” (62%) and that he “is intelligent” (58%).

Both of those attributes of his have been on display during this crisis.

Trump has other arrows in his quiver: He’s calm and doesn’t panic, decisive, and follows the evidence, not the hype.

We saw that early on when Mike Pompeo’s State Department recommended to him that the U.S. shut down passenger traffic from China.

On January 31,  the president issued a travel ban  that restricted entry by foreign nationals who had traveled to China within the previous 14 days.

It was not an easy decision. China had just concluded a trade deal and they swore to us they had the matter under control.

Still Trump made his decision. Soon after, a dozen countries followed our lead and banned Chinese traffic.

China fumed.

But that decision will prove to have singularly changed what was to be a total catastrophe into a manageable crisis.

Trump has been chided for not taking the threat seriously.

But as his congressional opponents focused on a very flimsy impeachment inquiry, he was busy convening a coronavirus task force. And that was back in January.

Since then Nancy Pelosi and company have tried to blame him for the crisis.

Just this past weekend the House speaker told CNN that the president’s “denial at the beginning was deadly.”

And NBC’s Chuck Todd suggested to Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden that the president may have “blood on his hands.”

These attacks on Trump are akin to a “blood libel” and demonstrate a degree of political depravity unseen in our politics.

The record shows that in early January and February neither Pelosi nor Todd nor other Johnny-come-latelies were sounding any virus alarm.

Biden, to his everlasting shame, actually decried Trump’s closure of Chinese commercial traffic.

The day after Trump’s China travel ban, Biden  tweeted : “We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

Trump’s cautious approach was based on expert advice and information he had at the time.

The Chinese consistently told the U.S. and others they had the virus under control.

At the same time, Trump was advised China did not have a strong healthcare system, and the U.S. system was far more robust and would handle the pandemic as it had all others before.

Throughout the crisis, Trump has remained focused and level-headed.

He defers to the experts at his task force’s daily press briefings, and has kept the nation informed without being panicked.

He is keenly aware of the facts, not the hysteria:

  1. This is an epidemic.  The coronavirus can’t be “stopped,” but can only be managed.
  1. This is no normal flu . The crisis has been ignited by the fact this flu-like respiratory virus is highly contagious and strikes people who have underlying health conditions and people over 65 with weakened immune systems.
  1. We really face a hospitalization crisis . There are just not enough beds and ICU slots in New York City, and potentially other areas, to deal with the sudden wave of cases.
  1. We are in a race against time.  We need beds, medical equipment and gear, and ventilators to deal with the immediate crisis.

This initial crisis will be over in weeks. Our manufacturing and health sectors will answer the call. Social distancing will pay off. And ubiquitous testing will prove crucial.

And the warm weather of spring and summer will help reduce transmission.

Still, many are calling for closing down the nation for four weeks, a mantra in the liberal establishment that makes no sense.

Why should states that have few cases shut down? What’s the rationale?

And in states that have cases in the thousands — a drop in the bucket when compared to normal flu infections — why should all businesses shut down?

Last week the country of New Zealand, after reporting no deaths and just 107 confirmed cases, locked down its whole nation for four weeks.

Insanity.

Trump’s approach of focusing federal resources on New York — where yesterday 50% of deaths occurred — is a wise one.
