Obama Would Handle Coronavirus Pandemic Better Than Trump

///

A new poll discovered that a majority of voters would prefer President Barack Obama to run the nation during the coronavirus pandemic than current President Trump. However, Americans remain deeply divided over their chosen leadership amidst the outbreak that has spread to more than 400,000 across the country.

According to Politico, 52% of Americans think that Obama would do a better job in the current crisis. Only 38% think that Trump would handle it better in a sample of 1,990 voters. When presented with a choice between Trump and Bide, 44% picked the current president, a sign that doesn’t bode well for the Democratic nominee.

Obama has largely left the public attention since he departed from the Whitehouse but has become more active on social media since the outbreak. He endorsed Senator Elisabeth Warren’s plan for fighting the pandemic and also criticized Trump’s approach, something he rarely does.

Trump has been the target of critics for his slow reaction to the outbreak, something he denies doing. He also had a phone conversation with Biden regarding the handling of the crisis. “I laid out what I thought he should be doing,” Biden commented on the call Tuesday on CNN. “I laid out four or five specific points that I thought were necessary. I indicated that it is about taking responsibility, and being the commander in chief, taking on the responsibility.”

Trump claimed that he had a “wonderful, warm conversation” with Biden.

“It was a very nice conversation,” he added. “He gave me his point of view and I fully understood that.”

Not everyone agrees that Trump is handling the outbreak correctly. The Washington Post recently published a scathing article on the White House’s reaction. “From the Oval Office to the CDC, political and institutional failures cascaded through the system and opportunities to mitigate the pandemic were lost,” the article states.
