In his five years on the federal stage, Donald Trump has seldom missed a chance to capture the political benefit.
And it is why his hesitation to be responsible for the national government’s coronavirus reaction — and rather passing the buck to somebody else to direct it is indeed striking.
This should’ve been a week once the president of the United States claimed himself, particularly with the Democratic presidential candidates whined at Tuesday’s discussion, using their celebration more broken than ever, and also the president stronger than he had been months ago.
Rather, he is run away in the problem — and has enabled other people to flex their muscles.
“Managing a catastrophe is exactly what Mike Bloomberg does. In the wake of 9/11, he steadied and rebuilt America’s biggest town,” goes a fresh Bloomberg TV advertisement about the coronavirus.
“What I would do were I president I wouldn’t be accepting China’s term for this,” Joe Biden stated on CNN last year Wednesday. “I’d insist that China let our scientists into earning a tough conclusion of how it began, where it is from, just how far along it is. Since that isn’t happening today.”
“I will be introducing a strategy tomorrow to accept every dime the president is presently needing to spend on his racist wall in the southern boundary and redirect it into the coronavirus,” Elizabeth Warren stated on Wednesday.
And he is allowed a number of those candidates vying to replace him to step ahead.
Whistleblower states HHS blew it
“Officials in the Department of Health and Human Services delivered over a dozen employees to get the very first Americans evacuated from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of this coronavirus outbreak, with no appropriate training for disease control or proper protective equipment, according to a whistleblower complaint,” that the Washington Post writes.
More: The employees didn’t show symptoms of the disease and weren’t analyzed for the virus, according to attorneys for the whistleblower, a senior HHS official established in Washington who manages employees in the Administration for Children and Families, a unit in HHS. The whistleblower is seeking national security, alleging she had been improperly reassigned after increasing concerns about the protection of the employees to HHS officials”

South Carolina is an open-primary country, so voters can take part in almost any primary — provided that they select one ballot.
1 day before South Carolina’s first, Joe Biden makes stops in Sumter and Spartanburg… Bernie Sanders journeys to St. George, Aiken and Columbia before going to Massachusetts for a night rally at Springfield… Pete Buttigieg is at Charleston, Fairfax, Sumter and Columbia… Elizabeth Warren stumps at Greenville and Warrenville…
Something you might not hear from Democratic candidates a whole lot — campaigning against greater schooling wages, but Michael Bloomberg toed online, NBC’s Maura Barrett reports from Arkansas: “When touting his album from NYC, Bloomberg gave the stat about increasing teachers’ wages by 43 percent. He pointed to a person in the audience who said something that we couldn’t listen to, but he replied,’Teacher? You ought to be happy. You would think the teacher’s marriage happy? Enough is not enough. Do not ever make that error.'”
And at times, it is fascinating what candidates are not saying. NBC’s Gary Grumbach reports Bernie Sanders at South Carolina: “Sanders talked about his motion, in no uncertain terms. ‘We’re building a movement that can’t be halted,’ Sanders said. ‘It’s a justice motion. It’s a movement for economic justice. For justice. For ecological justice. And if millions of individuals stand up and fight nothing in the world can stop us’ Matters Sanders did not discuss Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg, the Democratic/Republican/media establishment. That is all fascinating since he is concentrated so intensely on these topics in the previous couple of months. Stopping today, after winning the Nevada caucuses, is noteworthy.”

By comparison, 16 percent said they wanted a candidate who held more liberal policies than Obama’s, and Sanders won these voters, 55 percent to 45 percent – among those few market classes Sanders completed in that 2016 competition.
