Why do some "fine people" claim that Trump did a good job handling COVID?

Google "covid deaths per capita john Hopkins" and scroll to "Cases and mortality by country"

USA ranks 10th in covid DEATHS PER CAPITA IN THE WORLD. USA has not contained the virus like Europe has. USA has more deaths per capita than FRANCE and we had more time to prepare.

In a few weeks we will pass ITALY'S PER CAPITA death toll.

Update:

@dew

If actual covid deaths were 1,000,000 in the US it would be like 100X the per capita death rate of other advanced nations. 

Update 2:

@socrates

He could of easily closed down for a longer period of time. His lock down was only 2 months. If he closed down for longer like other developed nations, we would gotten rid of this think like they did in Western Europe, South Korea, Canada,Vietnam,  NZ, Japan and Australia.

    Yet while Italy, Belgium and most of those countries now have low infection and death rates, dealing with localised spikes in numbers which they can test and trace.

    While in the US both continue to grow, with 2 Americans dying of the virus every 3 minutes and the number of infections continuing to rise with 1000 deaths every day.

    In Belgium yesterday 6 people died. so boasting at this time seems both premature and heartless to the all those who love the 1000+ Americans who will die today.

    Fine people?

    These were fools who have somehow allowed Trump to brainwash them.

    Trump implemented restrictions on travel from China in January. Liberals called him "racist" for doing so. They were the ones who still hadn't got a grasp of the danger presented by the Chinese coronavirus yet, not Trump. More travel restrictions from other regions as well as other actions were implemented soon after. Trump has been ahead of the game from the beginning. 

    There was one week between the first COVID-19 case on American soil and when Trump did the above. Regardless, NO ONE on the Left will explain just WHAT Trump should have done differently that would have saved lives.

    Considering Euro Democrats were smarter than New York Democrats it's surprising Democrat morons mention Trump, at all. NY 1,690/million dead - NJ 1,797/million dead - Mass 1,272 /million dead - Conn 1,248/million dead

    Source(s): Where the DEAD Democrats are BURIED -- worldwide. Notice the victims of New York voters (and adjacent states) were infected by Democrats from bad voting Euro countries.

    Predicted death from COVID 19 by the end of June of of this year: 2.5 million

    Actually death from COVID 19 by the end of June of this year: 150,000

    I would say that reducing the deaths by 2.35 million is a "good job" of handling the pandemic

    In Europe, each nation acted with its own authority. In the US, we have the TENTH AMENDMENT barring, prohibiting, absolutely BANNING the president from usurping States' powers. And certainly cities' powers. Some democrat governors and mayors acted decisively and quickly. Others did not. Now, compare Seattle to NYC.
