The President is made aware of many possible attacks and threats to our nation on a constant basis. What Dems are essentially saying is that once any threat comes up, we should take immediate action without doing any research or waiting.

We had the damn research. We knew how bad this would be.
All of our science was screaming about this in January and February.
And Trump ------- ignored it.
We sent tons of needed medical equipment to China and then shut down air travel to China like it would solve the issue.
Every scientist said banning travel to China wasn't enough. Trump said "We have 15 cases and it will be 0 soon. Like Magic."
We refused to seriously engage in getting testing going until March or forcing companies to prepare medical supplies at all for most items.
We are STILL shipping medical equipment overseas that we desperately need at home.
We have an entire organization that monitors terrorist organizations abroad and a system of screening here at home because of 9-11.
We HAD an organization monitoring viruses in Asia and preparing us at home in case of an outbreak and Trump shut them down.
We didn't eliminate the CIA's counter-terrorism units or eliminate screening at air ports because 9-11 happened over ten years ago. Why did we do that when Swine Flu was less than 10 years old?
Jesus Christ, we spend $100's of billions on army bases around the world in areas where conflicts haven't happened in over 50 years but a couple million dollars to be prepared for something that happened less than 10 years ago is too much?
Coronavirus is literally like Al Qaeda telling us they are going to ram planes into the Twin Towers, sending us a list of names of the people training here in the US to do it, giving us the dates they plan on doing it, and Trump ignoring it until after the first plane hits.
Here's the problem with America:
Republicans elect people who think they know it all and refuse to listen to anyone else. You elect idiots just like yourself. And we all get screwed for it.
And if you think I'm wrong, ask the South Koreans who took this seriously from Day 1. No mass unemployment. No shut down. No massive cases or deaths. No overwhelming of hospitals. No Bail Out equal to 10% of their GDP for just Round 1.
Humtake, you and people like you are the problem.
