On the first day of spring, March 19, 2020, the American President called a news conference to ostensibly update the country on the effort to stem the tide of the Covid-19 virus.

Yesterday, March 18, 2020, the President assembled his rapid response pandemic team for another press conference. He slurred his words, grew weary of trying to read his prepared remarks, then called on the Vice-President to tell the American people the contents of his speech.

Furthermore, on the leadership front, the President made excuses for the difficulty of the pandemic. One wonders how he ran his businesses. All the problems in the world come with a degree of difficulty. The reason we pay the leadership big bucks is for them to solve complex problems. When leadership whine about the complexities confronting them, it does not give confidence to the people led. Thus, unnecessary worry and concern experienced by Americans today. read more

A Short Note on the Pandemic #6

As the United States moves further into the Corvid-19 Pandemic, the President proposes to give some Americans a $1,000 check to ease the burden caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus.

His lackadaisical approach caused his American supporters not to take Corvid-19 seriously and thereby to avoid appropriate steps to ward off the infection. As the numbers grow in the coming days, some, if not all, of the new coronavirus cases, can be traced back to the President’s initial down-play of the severity of the disease. Come November 3, $1000 can cause a large number of Americans to forget what inaction took place in January. read more
