Criticizing Trump for what he didn’t do is fair. Speculation for “what if” is largely a rabbit hole to make your own idea seem more palatable in my experience.
Criticizing AND applauding State and Local leaders (and POTUS) for what they DID do is much more relevant and practical.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them
better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives
valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither
victory nor defeat."- Theodore Roosevelt
