Former United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice took time out of her Wednesday to appear on "The View" and rip President Trump for his handling of the coronavirus crisis. Rice said the blame for 150,000 deaths due to the coronavirus crisis can be placed on "Donald Trump and his gross mishandling of this pandemic.”
Sunny Hostin of ABC said, “Ambassador, I do want to talk to you then about the coronavirus because President Trump has said nobody could have predicted this pandemic.”
This caused a grin from Rice.
“But the Obama administration did predict a pandemic and you personally tried to prepare the incoming administration for something just like this, leaving essentially a pandemic playbook that warned of this type of virus happening," Hostin continued. "So who is really to blame for the abysmal response here and the death of 150,000 Americans?”
“Well, Sunny, yes, everybody who knew anything about national security, global health, understood that a pandemic was inevitable,” Rice responded. “I write about it in my book that we were just talking about briefly at the outset. We prepared the incoming administration with a ‘Pandemic for Dummies’ playbook and a tabletop exercise and so many other briefings.”
“So the fault here, the tragic loss of 150,000 Americans and counting is on Donald Trump and his gross mishandling of this pandemic,” Rice continued. “He said it would go away. He likened it to the flu. He said, you know, that it would be fine to reopen our states prematurely. He’s encouraged kids to go back to school in communities where the virus is raging. Every step of the way Donald Trump has put his own personal political interests ahead of the wealth (sic) [health] and well-being and the economic security of Americans. That is why this tragedy has been as bad as it has been. Anybody who has any doubt about that, look at many other competent countries in the rest of the world. In Europe, in Asia, and elsewhere, that have handled this in such a way that their kids are going back to school; their economies are reopening, and the numbers continue to go down. That is not what is happening here.”

Back in April, another member of the Obama cabinet took to Twitter to describe how Barack Obama would have handled the pandemic. Valerie Jarrett didn't spend much time providing details on how this would have worked.
Someone asked me today how would @BarackObama have handled this crisis? Answer in one word - Better. Ok, two words. Much better.

Care to expand on what he would have done differently, Valerie? Didn't think so.
