by anon-a4e4 If the virus spreads in the US he will have been a major factor in delaying preparations for testing and prevention and in initially supporting and spreading conspiracy theories. He gutted the Obama Administration's preparations for a pandemic, after weakening every branch of government that could deal with this (except the army - I suppose martial law is coming). Further his words do nothing but confuse the people and his best performance is only when he sticks to a script and avoids answering questions. He can't stop himself from being racist and partisan even in these times and he is anything but a unifier. His actions towards other nations are arrogant and unilateral and show no understanding of the kind of leadership the world needs, nor does it do anything to protect Americans. He is, as could have been predicted, a total embarrassment in a crisis. One hopes

By Kirby Liberty Harris The US system was not supposed to have leaders, but servants. Servant care for and work for those who they serve. So no fail during a crisis.

By William Dykeman The President is both the head of state and head of government of the United States of America, and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces. Under Article II of the Constitution, the President is responsible for the execution and enforcement of the laws created by Congress.

The Executive Branch | The White House
then why does the Constitution call the president
COMMANDER in chief, pray tell?

By Kirby Liberty Harris Wrong, the US president is an elected servant. He serves the people by running the Executive Branch of the US government. Constitutionally he does NOT run the country.

By Kirby Liberty Harris AND Constitutionally he is ONLY the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces when they are actually called into action, and make sure the laws passed, if Constitutional, are followed.
