I’ve seen a lot of debate on whether Trump is directly responsible for 150k CV19 deaths. Here is how I see it.
Let’s say an arsonist sets a house on fire in the middle of the night and the house burns down killing the 4 people inside. It’s the arsonist that is responsible for the 4 deaths.

But -
If the fire department was told that there was a fire & the chief said “that’s not really a fire - I don’t believe it” & didn’t come to that family’s rescue - that’s criminal negligence. The fire dept. didn’t cause the deaths - but they didn’t live up to their responsibility.
The fire chief should not be charged with murder but he should be immediately be fired and held criminally and civilly responsible for his neglignce.
