If Obama was still president, I bet he would have said this about the pandemic long ago.

I bet he would have told the American people this; The number one thing you need to battle a pandemic on this scale, besides testing and tracing, is patience.

When dealing with a virus this deadly, it takes time to learn what the virus does and does not do.

It takes time to learn what we should do and not do.

It takes time to come up with treatments for a virus like this.

It takes time to come with a vaccine for a virus like this.

This is going to be a long term battle, not a short one.

We as a nation must remain patient for as long as it takes.

If we are patient and smart we will defeat this virus.

I have no doubt Obama would have said something like this. He would have been honest and he sure as hell would have made testing and tracing the number one mission in our country back in February. We would be more like South Korea at this time.

2. Obama's messaging and coordination with agencies and states would have been infinitely better.

We would have known that the government was taking all steps necessary. Don't know for sure the statistics would be a lot better, but confidence in the government would be.

Obama would have had patience with citizenry and media.

It is a fact. Obama would not have lied , covered up a pandemic for two months.
