We’re setting up for a fascinating fall. If some, primarily left wingers, want to argue the 2 million+ deaths models were accurate then when we end up with a small fraction of those deaths, won’t Donald Trump be able to argue his actions saved millions of lives?

So what will happen then? Will the left wingers repudiate the 2 million+ models or will they have to acknowledge Trump saved millions of lives? It seems like to me Trump has painted his critics into a tiny political corner.

I don’t think anyone is arguing that model was accurate.

Are you kidding me? There’s a huge percentage of people saying the only reason two million people aren’t going to die is because we took action. Hell, that’s what the guy who built the model is already saying.

One life lost is too many. There are too many deaths to call this anything but a failure to act on behalf of every citizen of the U.S.

Gail, it’s likely when 2020 is over the same number of people will have died as died in 2019. Maybe even less in 2020.

Are you saying a fraction of 2 million (like 250,000) is a win for Trump?

I doubt it will be that high. But, yes, if you were told two million+ might die without action and 100k end up dying instead after Trump took action, how is that anything other than a positive result given the dire circumstances?

The 2 million+ death models were based largely on no action being taken. Countermeasures (limiting social gatherings, practicing social distancing, closing down stores, etc.), all can reduce the projection. It's been stated and re-stated. But of course, you know this.

That’s my point. Trump took action. So he can claim his actions saved millions of lives.

He disbanded the CDC pandemic team, called the virus a Democrat hoax, is shipping medical supplies to the highest bidding states, lied about available testing for months, pushed an untested drug as a cure, but sure the 8,000 deaths and counting are a win for trump

Was the 2 million+ death model accurate? If it was then the tiny fraction of that number we will have in this country is a massive win for Trump.
