President Donald Trump is now saying there’s “not much” he could have done differently in responding to the COVID-19 crisis, despite having more than 225,000 deaths and over 8.5 million cases on his record.

By almost every metric President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic is the worst of any large nation. The United States has by far the most COVID-19 cases. In second place is India, with a population four times that of the U.S.

America has had the most coronavirus deaths. On a per-capita basis for number of deaths the U.S. comes in at number 12 out of 217 countries and other politically-recognized areas. That means there are 205 nations that have done a better job than the U.S. under President Donald Trump.

“With COVID,” Sinclair Broadcasting’s Eric Bolling asked Trump in a Rose Garden interview that will air this week, “is there anything that you think you could have done differently, if you had a mulligan or a do-over on one aspect of the way you handled it, what would it be?”

Trump’s reply?

“Not much.”

In other words, he thinks he did a great job.

“Look, it’s all over the world, you have a lot of great leaders, a lot of smart people, it’s all over the world. I came out of China, they should have stopped it.”

The President is being excoriated for his laissez faire attitude toward the deadly disease.

At a state Senate Oversight Committee hearing, Colbeck suggested that there was a plot to use voting machines to steal the election from President Donald Trump.

For his part, Irwin noted that Trump had not requested a recount in Michigan.

"If you were on the losing end, much like, say, President Trump or candidate John James, would you have requested a recount?" the Democratic lawmaker asked.

"I've doubts with the integrity of the recount process," Colbeck replied. "So, I probably would not have done that."

Dem senator shames Steve Mnuchin to his face: ‘You’re leaving the country worse than you found it’

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) on Tuesday shamed Trump Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin for his decision to not extend the Federal Reserve's emergency lending facilities that were designed to keep the economy afloat during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Brown started off by giving Mnuchin a blunt assessment of the state of the economy that he will be handing off to his successor.

"Last week, 778,000 people filed for unemployment insurance," he said. "In October, 3.4 million homeowners were past due when their mortgages, many of them will run out of forbearance options by April. As many as 40 million renters will spend the holidays worrying that they will be evicted on January 1st if their government, if we don't do our job."
