Democrats got the bad news they did not want to hear.
The left thought the Chinese coronavirus outbreak was their ticket back to the White House.
But this top Obama Ally’s coronavirus warning shocked Democrats into silence.
The Democrat Presidential primary is now an afterthought.
Joe Biden is the likely nominee, but Biden will play almost no factor in the race for the foreseeable future.
The election now is a referendum on Donald Trump’s handling of the Chinese coronavirus outbreak and steering the economy toward recovery.
But despite the fake news media and Democrats claiming this is President Trump’s “Hurricane Katrina” the President is not doomed to have this outbreak sink his re-election chances.
During fake news CNN’s coverage of the Arizona, Florida and Ohio primaries – all which Biden won – former Obama chief strategist David Axelrod warned the onset panel and TV audience that Donald Trump’s ability to command the bully pulpit was his secret weapon.
“Let me just say one thing about moving forward, however. You were right, this will rob Trump of his ability to do these large rallies, but he has one big platform right now. We saw it today. He’s the president of the United States in the midst of a crisis. It took him a long time to acknowledge the depth of that crisis, but if he consistently appears to be wrestling with that crisis, this is a country that likes to rally behind the leader.,” Axelrod explained.
POLITICO – a fanatical anti-Trump fake news gossip site – echoed this sentiment.
In POLITICO’s nightly “Pandemic” newsletter reporters RENUKA RAYASAM, DAVID SIDERS AND RYAN HEATH wrote:
“The initial mishandling of the coronavirus by the government doesn’t mean voters will penalize Trump in November,” said Michael Ceraso, who worked for Sanders in 2016 and was Pete Buttigieg’s New Hampshire director before leaving his campaign last year. “We know we have two candidates who can pivot this generation’s largest health crisis to their policy strengths. But history tells us that an incumbent who steers us through a challenging time, a la Bush and 9/11 and Obama and the Great Recession, are rewarded with a second term.”
And that’s exactly how some in Trump’s inner circle view it. People close to the Trump campaign acknowledge to our colleague, Alex Isenstadt, that the president didn’t handle the response well in the opening weeks. But if the pandemic abates and the economy stabilizes by the fall, they see a scenario in which Trump comes out of the crisis framing it as an American comeback story and positioning himself as the leader who navigated the country through a crisis.
There were early missteps in terms of rolling out testing.
But even Doctor Anthony Fauci said those delays were no one –including Donald Trump’s – fault.
Voters will not judge how Donald Trump managed the outbreak at the start, they will render their verdict on how the President performed based on the state of the country and the economy once this passes.
