The Trump administration has surrendered to the pandemic

As America heads into the final week of the 2020 presidential election, it is baffling and frustrating that the Trump administration continues to do so little to meaningfully confront the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s baffling because the White House’s bungling of the crisis might be President Trump’s biggest obstacle to re-election. Appearing to take the virus seriously this late in the game might not win the president enough votes by next week, but it might help staunch the bleeding in the polls. And it’s frustrating because — Trump’s political future aside — the health and well-being of millions of Americans remains in the balance, threatened both by the virus and its social and economic effects.
