I’m not American, and I don’t know if I have the right to bring here my opinion about what is happening with your president.
My job as an analyst of international affairs in my newspaper gives me some kind of authority to say something from the point of view of a European who had lived in the States and cares about the land of opportunities it used to be.
Donald Trump is the best at lampoon himself, at least as we can see him from the outside. And this fact has been revealed bluntly with the coronavirus crisis.
He ridicules himself with his statements about the virus, his references at its eventually miraculous disappearance, the propaganda he still doing of a medication who doesn’t work. He lies constantly about the situation of infected and dead who is catastrophic for the most developed country in the world, worst than places with fewer resources, and not the best of the world as he keeps saying.
Social distance, masks, the simple things that really work to stop the spread of the virus are sabotaged by his public demeanor.
And when he has to talk about the pandemic he actually talks about himself and his ratings. He seems more concern about the elections than about the lives of their citizens.
He has the one of the best advisers like doctor Fauci and keeps contradicting him as if he knew better of epidemiology than the best specialists. He has said that often talks and decides because of a hunch.
With 189.000 deaths and 6,3 million cases it is time to ask Trump if he really think that his hunches were better than listen to the experts as almost every leader of the world has done.
If the answer would be yes, then you have a serious problem: he’s probably crazy.
