Trump's peanut gallery will only make the situation more divisive.

I can't say I'm surprised, that you don't take things Jesus said all that seriously.
Of course I don't want to invite civil unrest. Trump is the poster boy for promoting civil unrest, and you are supporting him.
60 million people Americans got Swine Flu under Obama-Biden. Using your logic they are responsible.
What was the US response to swine flu compared to COVID-19?"There were some mistakes, but it wasn't anything too consequential," Dr. Adalja says, adding that, "once public health officials realized that swine flu wasn't going to be cataclysmic, they backed down on mitigation efforts like school closures and social distancing."But, Dr. Adalja says it's very difficult to compare the Obama administration's swine flu response to that of the Trump administration's handling of COVID-19. "Whatever faults the Obama administration had with their response to the 2009 pandemic, those are dwarfed by continual errors from the Trump administration that are continuing to this day," he says. Those include, but aren't limited to: failing to take the deadly illness seriously, slashing funding for critical public safety nets, and significantly lagging in testing during the first weeks and months of the pandemic.

According to WHO the Covid-19 pandemic is like 10 times worse than what Swine Flu was and it was very quickly obvious that Covid-19 is far more deadlier, and remains potent for much longer (i.t.o. infection, spreading and recovering). If you look at the number of people who got infected by Swine Flu and who died from it compared to Covid-19 (over similar periods), then it becomes obvious that we are talking about vastly different pandemics.
"There were some mistakes, but it wasn't anything too consequential,"
I agree with Mattis that Trump should try to unite the country but doesn't. In that sense Biden would be far better. But, like I said, the day after Trump is out of office that damage is not that serious. But, if Biden gives China an opportunity to complete their 2025/2049 agenda then we're all in serious trouble.
No one could know the immediate impact of a virus. It's entirely possible that a virus like Swine Flu could have initiated a deadly cancer with a 80% mortality. No one knows, so you have to treat viruses as very serious and not allow them to spread. In the case of SF we were lucky that it was relatively harmless (although people did die). In the case of Covid-19 we weren't as lucky. It could have rapidly diminished with warm weather, but that didn't happen.
