And my take, as a letter sent to the Jerusalem Post:
Of all the ways Biden’s win will rattle Israel (Tova Lazaroff, Nov 7) https://www.jpost.com/us-elections/10-ways-a-biden-win-rattles-israel-palestinians-middle-east-analysis-648358 no 10 on the list, revival of the 2015 Iran deal is the most serious. Trump just needed to wear a mask and we wouldn’t be in this situation.
Trump lost not to Biden but to covid-19. What really made all the difference was his incredibly absurd denial of the seriousness of covid-19 and many, especially older voters, took notice. Of the most important issues for voters coronavirus topped the list with 41 percent. After all, on Friday the US had 132 979 new cases at the time Trump kept repeating how the US was “rounding the corner”.
