The Mooch has a bad case of butthurt. Your president was doing things to contain the coronavirus long before Trudeau would even acknowledge it's existence.
He lied for the longest time. Sorry, this man is a tool.
Correction, he didn't know. Unlike, other Western leaders he knew something was wrong. Like, all of them he didn't know the extent of it.
He knew. He downplayed it for political purposes and the dive the stock market was starting to take. See three things: he tied his presidential success to the market, he is in the midst of an election year and he wants to be able to blame the governors for this mess.
The whole world new what started in China in January. Don't pretend otherwise, the NSA monitors everything.
Don't be duped by your own world view. Right now it can kill you.
No Western leaders really knew what was coming. They would have done more sooner had they had that information.
The entire West world was not prepared for this. I don't blame Trump, Trudeau, Johnson, Macron or Merkel. They inherited systems unprepared for a global pandemic. Next time around Western countries will be as prepared as Asian countries are.
