The U.S. is the biggest loser of 2020. This happened because, due to political squabbles, the U.S. authorities put the fight against the coronavirus on the back burner and paid the price for it.
The newspaper’s editorial board believes that COVID-19 was the challenge of the past year, as the pandemic quickly turned into a global threat. Each state confronted it in its own way. In this respect, Washington was among the outsiders. The number of infections in America every day exceeds 230 thousand, and more than four thousand people die every day, the Parliamentary Newspaper writes.
The Chinese have paid attention to the way America’s mainstream media is behaving in the face of this tragedy. All the attention of American journalists is focused on the possibility of an impeachment declaration against President Trump and related stories.
“If politicians in the United States would really serve the good of the people, they probably would have been engaged not in internal “showdown” but would have created the conditions to fight the coronavirus,” the Chinese edition writes.
According to the authors of the publication, the failure to fight COVID-19 is the main failure of President Trump. But he does not have long to rule. Instead of a Republican, Joe Biden will sit in the Oval Office. Whether he will succeed in curbing the pandemic in the United States is a big question, given the Democrats’ desire to disenfranchise Trump in the future.
Recall that the day before, the House of Representatives of Congress announced Donald Trump’s impeachment. The vote on the second impeachment was held because of the charge of inciting mobs that attacked the U.S. Capitol when lawmakers officially recognized Joe Biden’s victory in the November 3 election.
