I just have one direct request of Mr. Donald John Trump: stop Tweeting and do your job as President of this nation!
As leader of this nation your primary responsibility is the health, safety, and welfare of its population. As a retired 24-year Army veteran I can say that you cannot avoid direct responsibility or accountability; a leader's accountability and responsibility cannot be delegated.
I strongly request that Mr. Trump either lead or get out of the way and let the qualified professionals handle this biological crisis. Solving the current biological crisis will solve the current apparent economic crisis. You only solve a medical problem by attacking the cause, not reacting to the symptoms.
I believe Mr. Trump should just get out of the way and let the qualified professionals handle this crisis, and STOP TWEETING. Thank you for listening.
Douglas Grant, Butte
