“To be honest, as a public health professional, I am deeply concerned about the U.S.,” says Lim, in Singapore. “It’s become politicized, making it difficult for the average citizen to know who to trust or what to believe.”The scarcity of diagnostic kits nationwide and delay in testing cases has also led experts to warn that there is no way of even knowing where the hotspots are in the U.S. right now.“The U.S. has enormous capacity,” says Wang, the Stanford professor. But he notes that it “needs to mount a coordinated effort, like Taiwan, because the infection impacts many aspects of society and really affects people’s lives.”David Hui, in Hong Kong, says it’s vital that the U.S. starts limiting social contacts to avoid a large-scale outbreak with the potential to overwhelm the health system. Schools need to be closed and mass gatherings canceled—something that is just now beginning to happen.“It’s clear that where people are more cautious, like Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, Taiwan, we see a relatively lower number of cases,” Hui says.“The facts speak for themselves.”
Oh and that the article conveys an entirely different meaning than your self edits.
You believe President Trump is a racist based on out of context excerpts of speeches he gave where said excerpts falsely give the impression that Trump called Mexicans rapists and that Trump called white nationalists in Charlottesville “fine people.
It's better to take a step back, look at the context of the quote, and see that the media is spinning things in order to get you to hate for their own reasons.
I would agree that it's possible that he's simply stupid and incompetent, saying such things - either asking for trouble (a little demon inside)
he also pretty consistently takes the position of American workers
You confuse what he says to get votes with what he does
I'm one of those that believes some sort of world government or coalition (not necessarily open borders) is inevitable if humanity is to survive and flourish.
br>Most Trump supporters are not particular fans of Trump the man, just of his policies, and even that out of desperation, because no other politician will even get close to telling the truth about the evils of globalization. But try to explain that to someone frothing at the mouth with rabid hatred.
As for arguing the benefits of nationalism and isolationist policies ? It might have been interesting having an intelligent and articulate leader argue in favor of these, and to have the complexities debated and understood to some degree by the public at large . I personally don't buy it. I'm one of those that believes some sort of world government or coalition (not necessarily open borders) is inevitable if humanity is to survive and flourish.
