Donald Trump failed as a leader at the moment when America most needed leadership.
In the summer of 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic raged on, Americans faced mass unemployment, rising inequality and a national race-relations crisis. US President Donald Trump’s flawed handling of these crises parallel his personal proclivities and shortcomings, argues renowned investigative journalist Bob Woodward. Woodward uses interviews with Trump and others to establish that not only did the president fail to warn the American public, early on, about the danger of COVID-19, but he deliberately did the opposite. As of the end of October 2020, some 225,000 Americans have died.
