Donald Trump is a bigger threat to the US than coronavirus or China

The biggest threat America faces is not the coronavirus or China. Science and common sense will bring the pandemic under control within the next year. China is a much bigger challenge as Beijing tries to export its model of surveillance-enabled totalitarianism, but its bullying of Taiwan, herding of its ethnic Muslim minorities in Xinjiang into internment camps, and efforts to crush democracy in
Hong Kong have finally forced more countries to stand up to Beijing.

To keep this momentum intact, the White House will need to stop antagonising allies and supporting autocrats. We all know this won’t happen unless Trump is thrown out of office. Trump will continue to attack anyone not supporting his re-election bid and try to undermine confidence in the November 3 poll’s result.
