Anyone remember "leading from behind"?

Trump puts 'leading from behind' in a bizarre new light

Trump says he's "a war-time president," but he also sees 50 commanders in chief scrambling on their own, while he "looks from behind."


It's been nearly a decade since the New Yorker ran a lengthy piece on the Obama administration's policy toward the Arab Spring, which quoted in passing an unnamed adviser saying the White House preferred "leading from behind" in Libya. The Democratic president never actually used or endorsed the phrase -- he actually said the opposite -- but for Barack Obama's critics, the phrase became a rhetorical staple.

It came to mind yesterday listening to Donald Trump talk about his expectations that state and local governments would take the lead on addressing the coronavirus crisis. Referring to the allocation of resources and equipment, the president said at a White House briefing:

"Again, the state has to be doing this kind of a thing also. We're sort of a, we look from behind a little bit and we look at how are they doing, and if they need help, we do it. But it's their first responsibility."

Trump just accused hospitals/med centers of maybe stealing and selling masks

After one of the CEO's spoke on masks demand going from 10-20k per week to 200-300k at individual locations.

Trump steps up and says to th reporters "Someone should look into that. How do you go from using 10,000 in a week to 300,000? Are some of these going out the backfdoor? (Talking down to the press) Someone should look into that. To me that doesn't make sense to me".
