So straight out, two of the nation's most recent Presidents share breathtakingly similar personal and political qualities to the current occupant of the WH. For those offended by Mr. Trump, we've been here before.For that matter, in terms of policy, the President's is a mishmash of policies that span the spectrum. His instincts for protectionism, which has made him rather popular with "rank and file" labor union members, and his stand on immigration - which historically contradicts Reagan's stand - to his support for mandatory paid family leave to his support for prison sentencing reform. He will not touch entitlement spending, government generally is where it was under Mr. Obama, save for an increase in defense spending, and tax cuts are standard GOP fare. There is a little bit of everything for everyone with no unifying theme beyond a populist appeal.The truth is the nation reaped what it sewed. So while I am no fan of Mr. Trump, a little more historical perspective and far less hyperventilating helps.

The Guardian is fake news
lol. the predictable response from trump cult members who deny inconvenient facts.
It’s true the Guardian is fake news, Trump has taken the lead during the crisis, unlike Joe Biden who has no idea!
US intelligence warned him about coronavirus in January and he did nothing. On January 20 the US had it's first documented case. trump lied about the danger and did nothing for 6 weeks after. that's not leadership, that's incompetence.you're either uninformed, delusion, stupid or all of the above.
today trump advised people to wear masks when going out to avoid spreading covid. he also said he isn't going to wear one. Now that's leading by example. lol.
Coronavirus deaths per million people:UK: 64US: 25At this time, I'm not sure how a UK publication could insist that Trump "failed" at this,
Trumps decision to wear a mask is his personally.
@chico800 South Korea who had their first confirmed case on the same day as the US now has an infection rate nearly 6000% lower than the US. It shows what competent leadership can do compared a lying, inept so called leader.
I guess you've never heard the phrase leading by example. It's something leaders do. Of course you wouldn't know that since you think a lying, self centered, narcissistic, ego maniac is a good leader.
Name a leader who leads by example, Macron or Putin? Trump is making his own decision which he has the right to do. It's voluntary advice from CDC to Americans
Advice that could save lives. but trump is too incompetent and lacking leadership skills to lead by example.
South Korea, the United States of America... you're right, those are very similar countries. I get them confused all the time.It's okay, we know what happened. You whined about "xenophobia" when Trump cut off travel from China. You cheered when politicians grandstanded in Chinatowns, telling them to not be racist and come on down. And now you're embarrassed and lashing out.
Lol you hate Trump for being a puppet for Saudi Arabia lol
@NorthwestRider He has good policies and bad policies
