I'm not "defending" trump so dont get your nickers in a twist, but its not really under the executive responsibility to "react" to the virus, its under the CDC the DoH and FEMA.
He was probably advised to not cause panic by coming out with statements in the begining, and that caught him shit.
You can make an argument about eliminating the "pandemic responce team" but you can also make an argument that thats already the CDC and FEMAs responsibility and just redundent.
The stronger argument is about calling congress to lower the CDC funding, but do you know how that budget is being spent, or what the text of the bill is, or did you just read the headline and get worked up?
Whats your country doing in responce?
