It will one day disappear like a miracle: that is how President Donald Trump described the coronavirus pandemic in its infancy.
For weeks, he continued to assure the Americans that they had him “completely under control.”
But now, the United States is the most affected country with more than 609,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and more than 25,000 deaths.
Health care workers face medical shortages, hospitals are overwhelmed, and the president is under pressure.
He was charged with ignoring warnings of a full-blown crisis and misleading the Americans.
But Trump insists he does the job right and uses his daily briefings to promote his accomplishments.
He took another controversial decision by stopping funds from the World Health Organization (WHO), accusing the UN agency of mismanaging the spread of the virus.
But what about Trump himself?
And what kind of leadership has he shown in the face of the pandemic?
