- Eye Opening
US President Donald Trump didn’t cause the coronavirus pandemic; but by ignoring experts’ warnings and exhibiting a lack of concern for anything other than himself, he made the situation far worse. Still, political commentator David Frum notes, many Americans continue to back Trump; and even if Trump loses the 2020 election, the systemic problems which helped put Trump in office – including weaknesses within the voting system and public sector, and polarization among the electorate – will remain. America can’t repair the damage Trump has caused, Frum argues, until they deal with these issues.
