    And we all know that everything you read in the news or on the internet is 100% true and correct as are any political statements from any side of politics.

    Such a useless Pres ?

    he was the only Pres to defuse the Nth Korean situation , rather than making it worse
    actively trying to get the US military out of regions no one wants them in , out of unwinnable Military actions
    Gave the Euro govts a kick up the arse for underspending on Military & relying on the US to make NATO worth anything

    Probably not as dumb as the biased news wants us to believe .
    The reporting here was so left biased its no better than fake news .

    Using your logic that would make the Taliban the loser, not Trump.

    The figures in the Covid-19 sites posted above make interesting reading, especially the total deaths/total cases:

    World 2.6%
    US 2.7%
    Russia 1.7%
    UK 6.8%
    Australia 3.3%
    NZ 1.4%

    What the heck happened in New York? Mortality 30% while Texas had 2.3%

    Older population , high population density ? Unable to afford hospital bills so waited untill to late ?
    NY was hit very early on, possibly the sick & elderly werent isolating . When other states saw NY's death rate , attitudes towards isolating those at risk would have changed . Just a guess .
    We know some NY hospitals couldnt cope , that would have added to the issues .

    Most frightening is the number of doctors/nurses who got covid from their work , many hospital staff died .

    Very likely all those were contributing factors. The situation in NY as reported in the news was clearly bad but it is still a shock to put numbers to it.

    Of course, we must be careful not to read too much into the mortality statistics - factors such as age distribution, access to appropriate medical care etc. all play a role - as does the way the numbers are reported. I am a bit sceptical about Russia's 1.7%

    All the same, UK at 6.8% is a bit embarrassing, and the "courageous" approach adopted by Sweden doesn't look so good with a mortality of 5.8%. Translated into numbers of people actually dead who would otherwise be alive today, it paints a rather grim picture.
