He did impose a ban on travel from China on January 31. He did appoint a task force with top public healthcare officials to address the pandemic. He has been communicating with the public every other day. He has followed the recommendations of medical experts. Mistakes have been made. A big one was in going with the CDC approach to testing and not immediately moving to mass testing with procedures developed in other countries. Trump has been a reassuring leader. He learns from mistakes and fixes what has gone wrong. He has been a bit hesitant invoking some of the powers he does have. He waited to impose the Defense Production Act. Trump is not planning any authoritarian power grab. Your whole thesis is a paranoid delusion. The people understand he is working hard to stem the disease and relieve the suffering in every state. He praises healthcare workers. He understands the need for unity and bipartisanship. He compliments Blue State governors and Democrat mayors. His popularity rating is rising.
