    Nothing could have stopped it. However he did give it a month head start. On Feb 28th, Trump told a crowd of people that the early warning about the #COVID19 outbreak was a "hoax". US intelligence warned Trump in Jan as he dismissed coronavirus threat. Trump disbanded the pandemic response team, ignored early warning signs & refused to believe the science.
    Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China.”
    Feb. 2: “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China. It’s going to be fine.”
    Feb. 24: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”
    Feb. 25: “I think that’s a problem that’s going to go away. They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”
    Feb. 27: “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

    There is more, plenty more . But I think you get the gist.

    He denied it! That cost us valuable time and lives! Trump disbanded the pandemic response team, ignored early warning signs & refused to believe the science.

    You don't believe a month head start would have made a significant difference?

    Right wing ideology in denial with you I am afraid. These bills that are going to pass are pure progressive socialism. Passed by a Republican President, Senate, and Dem Congress. I could go further but I will let that sink in for you for a few weeks. Guess what hard core conservatives will find a way to call it something else. But Americans are going to depend in Govt more the. Ever and guess what, Reagan was wrong, as people will be grateful when a person arrives from the government and says I am here to help. Cutting taxes on the rich won't trickle down on us or grow the economy out of this pickle

    Isn't it kinfa likely that Trump was getting his info and what to about it by "experts" and maybe just maybe we didn't get the full story because he was trying to slow down the panic and prevent people from buying 15yrs of toilet paper for a respiratory illness. Asking for a friend?

    That's not what's being reported elsewhere... which people who actually know...

    Like your friend, I am thinking this might be the case. Why cause panic when there are so many unknowns at that time.

    He has a cabinet of people who don't believe the government is useful. He has a cabinet of people who deny scientific evidence as evidenced by people affiliated with the oil and coal industry in charge of the EPA. He dispanded the council of experts for pandemic responses, and put Pence in charge of responding to the virus a man who as Governor of his state closed clinics and prevented needle programs during a waive of HIV in his state. So now I am not giving him the benefit of the doubt. The man used fear, panic, and prejudice to his advantage for his benefit why would he suddenly be sober and responsible now ?

    Source? I won't doubt that China is less than forthcoming with the truth, as is Russia. The help they denied was from the US CDC, not the WHO. They were also late in reporting the genetic sequencing to WHO as I stated previously.

    On Jan 27 the director-general of the World Health Organization flew to China to meet with government officials and health experts trying to contain the spread of covid-19.

    Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of WHO, said the U.N. health agency wants "to understand the latest developments and strengthen our partnership with China in providing further protection against the outbreak.”

    “WHO is working closely with the government on measures to understand the virus and limit transmission,” Tedros said.

    He praised Chinese officials for sharing data about the virus, including its genetic sequence. “We appreciate the seriousness with which China is taking this outbreak,” he said. “We would have seen many more cases outside China by now — and probably deaths — if it were not for the [Chinese] government’s efforts [...] The speed with which China detected the outbreak, isolated the virus, sequenced the genome and shared it with WHO and the world are very impressive, and beyond words.”

    China did decline offers of assistance from US experts, including scientists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
