I guess everything is relative, but the one area in which I sense that the news media seems to give credit to Trump is Operation Warp Speed. And I guess that the recent great news about the successful vaccine trials justifies this take. But what did Trump actually do?
Perhaps my judgement is clouded by everything else he’s said and done, but I’ve assumed that Trump basically just sent a bunch of cash to the best pharmaceutical and distribution companies. We were printing trillions of dollars anyway, so what’s a little more? Did he do anything special, or anything that any other president wouldn’t have done?
