jay: To people that are Trump supports, what makes him a great President? I'm serious, I really want to know. This is not to be argumentative, I just want to know your perspective. Look, I'm not very political. I hate the news. However, I have watched Trump's press conferences and would like to believe I have an unbiased point of view. Personally, I don't get the name calling, and I mean that from both sides, Republican and Democrats. The facts are the facts. Personally, I don't believe the coronavirus is something that should bring the country to a stand still. However, that is the direction the country chose to go. But Trump has mishandled this. If you are in political office, you have to have a thick skin and take the good with grace and give everyone else credit and take the bad with dignity and accept the responsibility. These are traits that Trump fails to possess or cares to understand. It's what I consider leadership qualities. All he sees is blame. Blame for everyone else and never himself. Say what you want about Hillary but she probably would have hired replacements for the CDC pandemic response team. She wouldn't contradict herself every chance she gets and bask in the spotlight. And she at least is an intelligent woman (sorry to say but Trump is not very smart, just listen to him talk). You can blame her and other politicians for their decisions, they are not above reproach and have made bad decisions. Decisions that for the most part were for the people of this country. And to be honest, decisions that a lot of us wouldn't want to make. Again, I don't believe this virus is very serious (yes, people are dying but people die from all kinds of diseases every day) but the way people have treated it, media included didn't instill a feeling of safety for the American people. Unfortunately, Trump had a chance to rally and instill confidence but instead he chooses to be argumentative and mean tempered every chance he gets. If he really cared about the country he would try to be above it and inspire and unite the country and not blame other people of this country or other countries. Regardless of your political beliefs, we are in this together.
