When he moves it is fast and decisive. That is what is happening with red tape now and what happened with borders before. When he started with closing borders many were calling it racist and unamerican. Now the whole world is doing it.
Here is the problem. You ban flights form China and then for weeks going forward he does nothing except down play the situation and make reckless statements. That is like giving a test with ten questions. You get the first question right and the next nine wrong. Most would assume the correct answer was just a fluke.

21 now give him an A but not one person has given reasons why. Do you really believe he has done everything right?

I agree that the time given by his travel ban was wasted.

can any human get everything right in this situation?  but is he handling it good now? i think so.  watched his live conference yesterday. he answered normal to the point every question. and his expected actions also seem pretty normal

To answer your two questions it would be no and second question I am not sure. So by your own statement he has not done everything right so how can you give him an A?

Now a direct question for you. Him not taking this serious from the beginning how much precious time do you think we lost?

To be fair , most people werent taking it seriously in the beginning. But absolutely a lot of precious time was lost.
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

I really think that he is sincere now, might have to do with the fact that he's surrounded by a very good group of people, and the whole team is not political.

Some of the team is 100% political and *ss kissers. The main one is the lady in dark black hair. All she does is nod to everything the president says and refuses to answer important questions like if we have enough ventilators. The two lead doctors are the only two that should every talk. They give it to us straight!!!

Thats true, but there were a lot of medical professionals that werent  taking it seriously either which is at least partly why he wasnt

Whatever this president does, will be viewed negatively.

Netanyahu took it seriously at the beginning. Is it clear that Israelis were taking it seriously the whole time?
Also keep in mind that everything he did try to do was met with resistance and vilification.
