BBC News - Coronavirus: Obama calls US response 'chaotic disaster'

 

today

 


Former US President Barack Obama has strongly criticised his successor Donald Trump over his response to the coronavirus crisis.

 

In a private conference call, he called the US handling of the pandemic "an absolute chaotic disaster".

 

Mr Obama has said he wants to play a larger role supporting Joe Biden in the presidential election in November.

 

His new remarks were made in a call meant to encourage former staff to work for Mr Biden's campaign, CNN reports. *

 

Mr Trump's approach to government was partly to blame for the US response to coronavirus, Mr Obama said.

 

"It would have been bad even with the best of government," he was quoted as saying in the call.

"It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset of 'what's in it for me' and 'to heck with everybody else', when that mindset is operationalised in our government."

 

Mr Obama also strongly criticised the decision to drop criminal charges against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn during the Trump-Russia investigation. ...

 



EDIT  * Obama was speaking to about 3,000 members of the Obama Alumni Association.

The Washington Post - This is Trump’s greatest failure of the pandemic

 

By The Editorial Board 

 

May 12, 2020 at 8:16 a.m. GMT+12

 


Hopefully the novel coronavirus, which has infected at least two people who work in the cramped warrens of the White House, will not spread there. 

 

Hopefully the measures being taken, including daily diagnostic testing, will contain it. 

 

But the genuine anxiety of President Trump’s team about their workplace underscores an important point. 

 

They know what needs to be done for themselves - diagnostic testing, contact tracing and isolating - but Mr. Trump has failed in his duty to provide it for the country.

 

The pandemic response demands a testing regimen that does not yet exist. 

 

According to the Covid Tracking Project, states are reporting about 300,000 tests a day, about a tenth of the 3 million or more a day that experts say is the minimum needed to begin to safely open workplaces again. 

 

Weeks ago, Mr. Trump should have embraced this as a uniquely federal responsibility ... a Manhattan Project for the pandemic age. 

 

Instead, he left the job to governors, and the nation is staggering under the consequences. ...

After seeing Trump walk out of yesterdays press conference I now fully understand the problem.

 

America is run by a petulant 3 year old.
