One month after? No, he restricted travel before WHO announced an emergency. Were restrictions put in place during H1N1? 4000 had already died here before Obama even declared an emergency.You do realize one month after the WHO declaration, shutting down flights was a month too late.... the virus was already being imported here for a month.Bull. He restricted flights to and from China, along with 3 other countries, on the same day. Before any others. Right after that, then other countries started restricting flights. I believe it was another 22 a few days later, then another 40 a few days after that. The lying was coming from China. Want me to post what the press and and Dems were saying about that action taken by Trump?We can't do anything about China not telling us about the virus for two or three weeks, but we can do something or say something about the Trump administration twiddling their thumbs.... it was announced Dec 2019 by the Chinese, Trump and team lead Americans to believe it was a nothing burger a d LIED TO US, for weeks on end about it... they did not prepare, did not seek extra protective gear, did not rush a test for it, did not procure the mass production of the test, while Trump was out there telling all of us how great he was by shutting the China flights weeks after the Dec 31 notification by China of the virus.... we were safe, because of him CRAP....Well you all are worried about China’s feewings rather than dying Americans so stay insensitiveWow...
World is falliing a part and you are still bringing up this shit...
Lets be clear, Trump is a failure. He is failing before and during a crisis, the economy is in the toilet, he has borrowed from the Chinese to the hilt, he divided America more, Stock Market taking record spanking...

WHO declares international emergency over Wuhan virus
His pandemic team was not prepared.
The idea of cutting flights two days before a world wide pandemic was announced is not good..... or something to boast about..... the idea of stopping flights was to prevent a worldwide pandemic....but the pandemic was here already.
500 people a day for 30 days flying in to the west and east coast of the USA from Wuhan spread the virus already.
His pandemic team was very slow, Ill prepared....in their response.... every hour counts....
We missed out on tests, producing them with the swabs and delivering them by the millions across the country.
We missed out on procuring protective gear, masks, gowns for hospitals and grocery clerks, pharmacists n workers, firefighters/emts.... other nations beat us to the supplies.
Let's just hope we make it through this, and we learn from it and put in protocols that force a reaction earlier.
Who complained about the flights from China being cancelled in the Democratic or Republican leadership?
