It's no coincidence that the United States now leads the world in COVID-19 deaths and infections

The country leading the world in COVID-19 deaths and infections is the one country being led by a six-time bankrupt failed frozen steak salesman and reality tv gameshow host who ran a fraudulent university and cheated on his third wife with a porn star.

This is not a coincidence.

1. And now...

Wait for it...

His family is in court over an alleged pyramid scheme scam they ran. And it is going to be publicly litigated.

Who could have imagined that?

2. The US doesn't lead the world in cases or deaths.

If you are going to compare countries, the correct way to do it is on a per-capita basis. This site:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries

has global per-capita data. Some of the worst-hit countries are tiny (e.g.: San Marino). However, large countries that have more cases AND deaths than the US on a per-capita basis include:

Spain, Italy, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Ireland

I realize that you're trying to make a point, and you are probably correct that Mr. Trump has worsened the situation in the US, but you're going about it incorrectly.

4. The US leads the world in both cases and deaths

there's just no way around that. You can spin it all you want, but the facts are the facts.

3. Perhaps being rated around 35th or worse in medical outcomes has something to do with it...

just saying. Trump and his corrupt crew is making things worse then they need to be, but our medical industry (I refuse to call it a system) was primed for failure in this scenario.
