As of writing, the United States of America remains the leading country with the most number of COVID-19 cases. The country has already breached the 2-million mark for those testing positive of the novel coronavirus, while the number of deaths is now more than half a million. With this statistics, there is clearly no end in sight just yet, but US President Donald Trump remains hopeful that the United States will remain strong despite of all the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. For the ordinary American people, however, it feels as if all hope is lost as the pandemic is already hitting the livelihood of millions of people in every state. At this point, they only have the government to rely on to get through with this crisis.
As the old saying goes, people can easily forgive but they cannot easily forget. People can let the POTUS off the hook with the grim situation in the country due to COVID-19, as every country in the world is just experiencing the same fate. However, people will remember all the things the the Trump administration did (and forgot to do) that led the country to this situation.
The Country’s Vote In 2020 Presidential Election Will Be Largely Based On Trump’s COVID-19 Response
Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the US, President Trump has high hopes that he can easily snatch a second term in this year’s presidential polls. Earlier in January, Trump was left unscathed by the Congress’ effort to impeach him and drive him out of his office, making it seem that the president still has enough power and influence to remain as the country’s chief executive.
However, the real challenge for Trump’s reelection would actually arrive a few weeks later when the first COVID-19 case was reported in the United States. People would remember how complacent Trump was when talking about the possible impact of this deadly pneumonia-like disease that came all the way from Wuhan, China. He even downplayed the health impacts of the novel coronavirus, saying that it would not be enough to bring down a strong nation like the US.
Fast forward to 5 months, and it is already clear that the pandemic has badly hit not only the health sector but also the economy of the United States. Trump has made many claims during his presidency, but the one that he made on this pandemic would stick to everyone’s minds. And he will be the only person to blame. This will be the time that he wishes he has outfit ideas by homiesfoto for him to look better.
