Which is what I was saying — unemployment because a shut down was a inevitable, but did his initial inaction prolong the shut down and unemployment we are in? The easy answer is yes, but is that the honest answer? the shut downs that have come are at a state and city level, and Democrats have argued that the President doesn’t even have the power to order people to stay at home, so what could he have done for that. add to that the fact that there is no punishment for going out in public, so we are all staying at home voluntarily. But look at the morons who are not. Absent of a federal mandate, enforced with criminal or civil punishment, you have people disregarding the advice to stay at home. Korea is simply a different culture, so we can’t project their willingness to follow orders onto our culture of obvious disobedience. I’m not saying Trump is blameless, I’ve been hammering him on his handling of this from the get go, but we need to be honest about what we are criticizing him for. International flights should have been stopped in January, but who would have supported and agreed with that back then? Nobody. And don’t even get started on what would have happened if he attempted to institute, at a minimum, a travel ban from China as a starting point. We already know the cries of racism that would have come from that.
