Biden and Obama did not restock the National Stockpile of medical supplies after H1N1 did not help the situation. Trump closed the borders, and the U.S has the lowest COVID mortality rate in the world.
Asked about Trump’s handling of the pandemic during a press conference Wednesday, WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the crisis needed “leadership.”
“And that’s exactly what he is doing, which we appreciate. Because fighting this pandemic needs political commitment and commitment at the highest level possible,” Tedros said.
