Had Trump followed his instinct with the ruthlessness it required and put the country on a war footing against COVID-19 rather than its own economy and civil liberties, he would still be president today. Trump knew what needed to be done. But he didn’t fight hard enough. He didn’t get rid of the incompetent Fauci and Birx. And the incompetents have won. A little “My bad” would go a long way. We’d gladly forgive him if he acknowledged the error.
