How the Pandemic Defeated America

  How the Pandemic Defeated America A virus has brought the world’s most powerful country to its knees.How did it come to this? A virus a thousand times smaller than a dust mote has humbled and humiliated the planet’s most powerful nation. America has failed to protect its people, leaving them with illness and financial ruin. It has lost its status as a global leader. It has careened between inaction and ineptitude. The breadth and magnitude of its errors are difficult, in the moment, to truly fathom.

White House on lockdown, Trump press conference interrupted after reports of shots fired.

Trump, a Republican who faces a tough and bitterly divisive election on November 3, said he knew nothing about the identity or motives of the person shot. "It might not have had anything to do with me," he said.

There was no immediate precise information on what sort of threat the person allegedly posed.

But when asked if the person had been armed, Trump answered: "From what I understand, the answer is yes."

Trump said the incident took place "on the outside" of the White House perimeter, which is currently being reinforced by a new iron fence twice the height of the previous version.

"I don't believe anything was breached, they were relatively far away," he added.

The Secret Service said that "at no time during this incident was the White House complex breached or were any protectees in danger."

Returning to the podium after the disruption, Trump appeared calm.

He resumed his virulent criticism of opposition Democrats and praise for his handling of the coronavirus crisis, which polls show two-thirds of Americans believe he has botched.

Questioned whether the security incident had rattled him, Trump answered: "I don’t know, do I seem rattled?"

"It’s unfortunate that this is the world, but the world's always been a dangerous place," he said.

- 'Screaming' -

Philipos Melaku, one of a small group of veteran protesters who camp out near the White House, said he had heard a shot.

"I heard a gunshot and before that I heard screaming," he told AFP.

"It was a male voice," he said.

"After that immediately, pointing their AR-15s, at least eight or nine men came in running."

Trump went on to praise the US Secret Service, which is in charge of guarding the president, as "fantastic people, the best of the best."

"I feel very safe with Secret Service," he said. "A lot of terrific looking people ready to go if something was necessary."
