Washington— By reconstructing and condemning the last months of the management against Covid-19 of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, The New York Times (NYT) yesterday exhibited the minimum level of tests that Mexico applies.
“I want to do what Mexico does,” Trump said Aug. 19, according to the NYT. “They don’t give you a test until you get to the ER and you’re vomiting.”
According to the newspaper, the president said that by recriminating Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and main adviser, and other collaborators in the White House for the high number of infections that, according to Trump, affected his re-election.
He also pointed out that the management of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has not been an example.
“Mexico’s record in fighting the virus was hardly one that the US could emulate,” the newspaper wrote.
“But for a long time,” he added, “the President (Trump) had considered that testing was not a vital way to track and contain the pandemic, but rather a mechanism to make him look bad by raising the number of known cases.”
The NYT questioned that Trump handled the pandemic politically and not scientifically.
He was also questioned for the attempt to politically manage the eventual vaccine against Covid.
