As evidence he wasn't behind the curve on the coronavirus, Trump likes to cite his end of January China ban. But this is damning, not exculpatory. For if Trump realized there was a real problem at the end of January, WHY DID HE DO ALMOST NOTHING FOR THE WHOLE MONTH OF FEBRUARY?
More could have been done in January, and more could and should have been done in March. But February was THE lost month. It was lost by the Trump Administration. I don't see how Trump or his defenders can evade that basic fact.
