Democrats seem to think that President Trump has done too little AND too much to fight the coronavirus pandemic:
You can't have it both ways.
If Democrats do take back both the White House and the Senate, as they stand a real chance of doing, the most important decision they will face in the short term is how to confront the coronavirus pandemic, which will still be ongoing to at least some degree.
Based on the attacks they have leveled against President Trump, they don't have the slightest clue what they would do differently, nor can they keep their story straight about what Trump has done wrong.
On the one hand, Democrats have repeatedly bashed Trump for not doing enough to stop the pandemic. They have criticized him endlessly for not instituting a nationwide mandatory lockdown, for not instituting a nationwide mandatory mask mandate, for supporting states that allowed some businesses to reopen early, and in general for encouraging Americans to get back to work and not allow fear of the pandemic to control their lives.
On the other hand, they have — especially in recent days — criticized Trump for the unavoidable economic impacts of the lockdown measures that they have been saying for months were too weak. For example, the Biden campaign released an ad showing a fake struggling small business owner complaining about the effect of the lockdowns on the music venue he owns, which is somewhat bizarre considering that Democrats have complained since businesses started reopening in late May that businesses were reopening too soon and Trump ought to be stopping them. --->READ MORE HERE

“With COVID, is there anything that you think you could have done differently, if you had a mulligan or a do-over of the way you handled it, what would it be?” asked Eric Bolling, the moderator for the pre-taped Sinclair Broadcasting Network event.
“Not much,” Trump shot back.
“Look, it’s all over the world, you have a lot of great leaders, a lot of smart people it’s all over the world,” he said, adding: “It came out of China. China should --->READ MORE HERE
