Dear Editor,

Yes, Donald Trump’s attitude to Covid-19  has  been cavalier at times! However, point-scoring and Trump-denigrating, so-gleefully-delivered cries of the Left, mainstream media and other assorted Trump-haters of “America under Trump has had more coronavirus deaths than any other country in the world!” are not fake, but so very willfully delivered without pointing out that relative to population, America (with a population  of some 340 million people) has had far fewer coronavirus deaths relative to population than many advanced-society European countries like Spain and Italy where on good authority it’s said Covid-19 was brought in by Chinese workers/visitors!

Also, it’s America’s individual states which have the most responsibility for border protection, health regulations, social distancing, contact tracing, etc., etc!

During his presidency Republican President George W. Bush warned that America was unprepared for an inevitable virus pandemic. What did the Democrats’ President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, during their terms in office, do specifically to prepare America for such a not-unprecedented pandemic as Covid-19?

Yours,
