President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic is “justified” by events abroad, Laura Ingraham argued on Tuesday evening.
“The World Health Organization has finally confirmed what we’ve been telling you at ‘The Ingraham Angle’ for months,” the host began. “COVID lockdowns are terribly destructive, especially for the poor.
“In light of all of this, it’s time to take another reality check and realize how fortunate we are that Trump was in the driver’s seat before, during and after the pandemic,” Ingraham continued.
“The politicized expert class have been more wrong than right, and President Trump has been smart enough to follow his own American instincts instead of their latest American flaw. ”
WHO CAUTION AGAINST COVID-LOCKDOWN DUE TO ECONOMIC DAMAGE
As the mainstream media condemned Trump as Europe began to reopen in the spring and summer, Ingraham said, the Old World faces more government-imposed lockdowns in the fall and winter, as well as an increase in the number of COVID cases and deaths.
“The only thing Europe has crushed is its economy,” she said. “The IMF’s new GDP loss projections justify Trump’s pro-US story. The United States has beaten all other G-7 member countries in dealing with the COVID fallout.
“If we had listened to Team Biden, we would sound like the UK, France or Italy: utter disasters. ”
Ingraham added that she and her team analyzed the numbers and concluded that a Biden-mandated economic shutdown would cost the U.S. economy an additional $ 770 billion on top of the $ 815 billion loss already suffered.
“It’s more than Ohio’s GDP. It’s like taking Ohio out of our country for a year, ”she said.

The host added that 12 of the 16 weakest statewide recoveries were in states run by Democrats.
“Why isn’t the press asking Biden for anything?” Ingraham asked. “Because they ask his communications team, that’s why.
“Biden has no answer for all of this, God bless him, for there is no answer to this, and he’s losing it. “
