Had Trump responded to the pandemic, shut everything down and kept it shut down while bolstering the income of those who lost their jobs to continue their ability to spend money on goods and available services, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in.
People would have been able to get by, the virus would be limited, and recovery would be faster.
