WAPO Report Details How Trump’s Focus On Politics Led To Catastrophic Failure In COVID-19 Response

A recent report by the Washington Post exposes the Trump administration’s ongoing failure in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to The Washington Post, in June, Trump was more focused on politics and the the economy than he was focused on stopping the coronavirus.

From The Washington Post:
If the administration’s initial response to the coronavirus was denial, its failure to control the pandemic since then was driven by dysfunction and resulted in a lost summer, according to the portrait that emerges from interviews with 41 senior administration officials and other people directly involved in or briefed on the response efforts.

Under mounting pressure to improve the president’s reelection chances as his poll numbers declined, the White House had what was described as a stand-down order on engaging publicly on the virus through the month of June, part of a deliberate strategy to spotlight other issues even as the contagion spread wildly across the country. A senior administration official said there was a desire to focus on the economy in June. []
