Jeb Bush slams Trump’s handling of coronavirus pandemic: ‘A leader needs to be transparent!’

GOP presidential candidates Donald Trump and Jeb Bush

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush often served as President Donald Trump’s favorite punching bag in the early days of the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

However, the former Florida governor suggested this week that the president could use some lessons in leadership as he struggles to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

In an interview with the New York Times, Bush listed off qualities any leader should have during a time of crisis, while suggesting that those are the very qualities that Trump lacks.

“A leader needs to be transparent, clear, empathetic, serious, and all-in,” he said. “A leader needs to communicate consistently and regularly. A leader needs to show his or her heart, which has to be done outside the governor’s mansion or the White House.”

Bush also added that leaders should know when to “shut down partisan politics” and “to trust the experts and allow the strategy to be developed with them.”

Trump so far has continued attacking his Democratic opponents in the midst of the crisis and has also regularly ignored expert advice by downplaying the dangers of the virus by comparing it to the seasonal flu. Just earlier this week, Trump suggested that the virus was not that big of a deal and said that life would “go on.”

Trump’s team files fifth demand for Georgia to audit their ballot signatures as their campaign to overturn the election fizzles

President Donald Trump's campaign has filed its fifth demand for the state of Georgia to audit the signatures on ballots.

The statement from the Trump team said that the "Georgia secretary of state should perform an immediate audit of the signatures on all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot envelopes received for the Nov. 3 General Election. The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia -- far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket's current margin of 12,670 votes."

Supreme Court hearing gets awkward as conservative Alito runs roughshod over chief justice Roberts

Published

President Trump is pressing the U.S. Supreme Court to allow him to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count -- a move that goes against more than 200 years of practice where non-citizen residents, even those in the U.S. illegally, were among those counted.

While questioning New York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, conservative Justice Samuel Alito said that the prospect of submitting two documents, one detailing census numbers of every person inside the U.S. and another detailing numbers that exclude undocumented immigrants inside the U.S. "seems like a totally meaningless formality."
