Whether President Trump likes it or not, it appears – at least for now – that the coronavirus pandemic will be the big, deciding factor in the upcoming November presidential election.
Now, that’s not to say that something won’t come up in the last few weeks prior to the election that will throw everything on its tail. Honestly, that’s usually what happens. I mean, who would’ve thought just weeks before voters were to go to the polls in the November 2016 a video would drop of then-candidate Trump talking about grabbing women by their genitals.
So, again, anything can happen in the last 100 days or so before the election but right now, as it stands, the coronavirus is weighing heavily on the minds of voters. And after nearly four to five months of hoping and wishing it would simply go away, President Trump seems to have come around to the idea that he may have to show some kind of interest/leadership on the subject.
In just the last week or so, Trump came out and said that wearing face masks is the right thing to do, essentially calling it patriotic. He’s also started the coronavirus press briefings back up again, after months and months of nothing from the coronavirus task force.
However, it’s up for debate whether these question and answer sessions hurt or help Trump. The may is liable to say absolutely anything at any given time, including whining about his liability/personal poll numbers.
Yes, Trump actually sounded upset that he’s not as highly regarded as Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx when it comes to the pandemic.
That sounds like a leader if I’ve ever heard one.
Seriously, this guy is so consumed with polls, poll numbers and whether people like him as well as the other guy. Maybe lead and things might turn around for ya.
