Trump on January 22: "It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine."

But there were warnings about COVID-19 in November. They knew and ignored the warnings and waited until March 13th to make any sort of move.

Regardless of how things go, they would have been much better without Trump as President. 

His response to this crisis has been an epic failure.

Covid-19 is not racist, but society still is and institutional racism is largely to blame for C-19's disproportionate effect on black people.

Minority communities have FEWER hospitals, medical clinics, and doctor's offices per-capita than middle-class neighborhoods. Minority communities are disproportionately affected by worse transportation options, worse education, worse access to food, and worse opportunities for work that would provide decent healthcare.

@GooseTheCat @IronMan I hope they use the line, "The Speaker of the State Assembly is not a brain surgeon."

Need an abortion? We are legally obligated to provide them where you live? No airplane to England due to the pandemic? THERE MIGHT BE A FERRY, GOOD LUCK!
