“Our basic reading of the rule of law under threat”
On his Twitter account, Donald Trump defended his record in the face of the Covid-19 epidemic: “We are getting great marks for our management of the coronavirus pandemic, in particular with the PROHIBITION of people from China, the source infection upon entry into the United States. Compare that with the Obama disaster and the sleeping Joe better known as the H1N1 swine flu. Bad marks, bad polls … They didn’t understand anything! “Wrote the President.
We are getting great marks for the handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic, especially the very early BAN of people from China, the infectious source, entering the USA. Compare that to the Obama / Sleepy Joe disaster known as H1N1 Swine Flu. Poor marks, bad polls – didn’t have a clue!
