The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “I have participated in tabletop exercises involving pandemic response; indecision is both seductive and dangerous, as Japan and South Korea are finding out,” former Senator Jim Talent writes for Fox News. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, responded quickly and effectively, shutting down flights from China in January to give officials time to prepare.
 
“Trump’s style of leadership is on balance a plus in this kind of a crisis. He is neither afraid to make decisions nor overly concerned about being criticized for the decisions he makes. That is vital.”
