Top Economist: Trump’s handling of virus ‘Like a third world country’ (Trump: COVID deaths ‘fake news-crisis actors’)


UK Indepedent: A Nobel-prize winning economist has said Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus in the United States has caused it to become like a “third world country.”

Joseph Stiglitz launched a scathing attack on the president in an interview with The Guardian, where he claimed that the county could possibly be heading towards a second Great Depression.

“The numbers turning to food banks are just enormous and beyond the capacity of them to supply. It is like a third world country. The public social safety net is not working,” he told the newspaper.

“The inequality in the US is so large. This disease has targeted those with the poorest health. In the advanced world, the US is one of the countries with the poorest health overall and the greatest health inequality,” he added.

When asked if the US could face a second great depression as a result of the continued failure in the handling of the virus Mr Stiglitz affirmed that yes was the short answer.

“If you leave it to Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell we will have a Great Depression. If we had the right policy structure in place we could avoid it easily,” he told The Guardian.
