Trump sends hospital ship to New York, parks it and then walks away. No follow up, no planning.

It's fucking unbelievable, Cuomo is in TV right now saying he is going to call Trump and tell him he needs the hospital ship to start taking covid 19 patients. The hospital ship has been there for days. Governors have to call Trump, Trump does not call them. Trump does not have the ability to plan ahead when it comes to a crisis, unless it has to do with covering his own ass. He has lots of experience doing that.

This is more proof Trump is not leading, he is following and failing. Trump cannot handle this crisis. He only reacts when people explain things to him. If it sounds good, makes him look good he will do it. If not, he will ignore it and lie about it.

1. I thought the ship was intended to take people who didn't have the virus

so the hospitals could take more people who did. Either way, it looks like it's not taking anybody but is just sitting there. Trump wanted the photo op and didn't care what happened afterwards.

4. You got it.

It looks like Cuomo called him and convinced him the ship and the Javits center should take Covid 19 patients. The lack of leadership Trump is displaying is shocking and deadly. You or I, almost anybody who is sane, could do a better job, I'm not kidding.

5. If many people are asymptomatic, and are contagious when they're asymptomatic...

... then regardless of intentions, it will not remain a hospital for people without the virus for long.

8. Good point. Regardless, it's ridiculous that the ship is just sitting there.

7. Exactly

exactly!

This is a HUGE mistake by Cuomo. People without Covid need help too and the crew of the ship needs to be protected.

10. Cuomo has no control over how the ship is being used or the Javit center.

He has to call Trump.

6. Everything is a photo op with him, that is it. He is a road farmer, the field looks good from

the road but over the ridge it looks like crap.

12. Just a random thought, Governor Cuomo (or another governor) should take a short film/video...

clip of let's say, one of them wants an item A from the rump administration. And then video tape the entire scenario of when, what, how the request was fulfilled, if fulfilled. Do the same thing w/ a republican governor (tell them being that actions of 'heroic' governor is being recorded for the history books).

Then, flash out to all the difference in action by the rump administration as well as the sheer incompetence. I know Cuomo has already said that there has been gross differences and this is more than likely killing people. rump is responsible because of his two tiered approach for some deaths. Look at how he handled Puerto Rico after their hurricane.

And again, look at his all of a sudden move to FL from NY. They say he did it for tax purposes/reasons but in a recent You Tube article, published recently (Published on Apr 2, 2020: Deutsche Bank bombshell reveals Donald Trump really is broke) said that he's broke, so it can't be for tax purposes because he's not making enough money to cover his expenses so he doesn't need additional tax breaks.

What he needs is more cash. And he's not getting it. Maybe he might have possibly done it to avoid the NYC taxes (if any, I don't know the tax code of NY State or NYC). Thing is, you're still going to have a substantial real estate tax bill.

The market in commercial real estate has collapsed, so he's not going to have any luck in selling the properties (the whole commercial real estate market is somewhat messed up, mainly because of the Internet, that's why he's so against the Internet/Bezos). I predict that the Banks will seize some of his properties (and he will give them up willingly, he needs to, but it's not going to look good).
