U.S. media: “Failure to respond to the epidemic” was an important factor in Trump’s defeat

According to CNN, three presidential advisers said Mr. Trump’s handling of the new crown was a major factor in his election defeat. A senior adviser said Mr. Trump’s “disdain for the virus” and mis-information alienated senior voters.

The adviser said Mr. Trump would never understand that older voters were most at risk of contracting and dying from the new coronavirus, which made them worry about how the president would respond to the new crown outbreak.

Another adviser said Mr Trump had “suffered consequences” on Election Day by choosing to reopen the economy rather than rein in the virus.
