Whilst an economic shock following the coronavirus outbreak was inevitable, Trump has overseen an impressive recovery in such a short period. Almost half of the jobs lost at the start of the pandemic have been recovered, and Trump wants to keep the economy as open as possible to prevent a second downturn. Prior to the pandemic, the US economy was making progress, and no administration could have predicted the outbreak of coronavirus. Trump is not responsible for the pandemic or the economic shock that followed - he has brought about a swift recovery that will continue. For more on this, refer to the argument 'Donald Trump has revitalised the American economy'.
