In the meantime, critics of the President have accused him of downplaying the pandemic. However, many of his supporters approve of the way he’s handled the health crisis.
“I don’t feel like he did downplay it, I think that he tried to protect the American people from hysteria and panic,” stated supporter Katie Jones. “He’s put himself all over the place trying to express how he feels and…put himself in a lot of vulnerable situations because he is the President.”
