Chomsky slams Ďmegalomaniací Trump over Ďchaoticí coronavirus response
 Chomsky slams Ďmegalomaniací Trump over Ďchaoticí coronavirus response

Activist scholar Noam Chomsky attacks the administration of US President Donald Trump over its "chaotic" response to the coronavirus pandemic, arguing the government is unable to stem the virus outbreak.

Speaking in an interview with AFP, the 91-year-old intellectual called Trump "a sociopathic megalomaniac" who thinks about nothing but himself and his power.

"Thereís no coherent leadership. Itís chaotic. The presidency, the White House, is in the hands of a sociopathic megalomaniac whoís interested in nothing but his own power, electoral prospects -- doesnít care what happens to the country, the world."

"The president himself has said that itís none of his business. Heís said that the federal government canít do anything," he added.

The US is currently the worst-hit country with more than 1,686,400 recorded cases of infection and 99,300 deaths.

Chomsky predicted that "there will a lot more" deaths in the United States as "thereís no coordinated plan."

He also criticized the Republican president for "defunding the Center for Disease Control" and "canceling programs that were working with Chinese scientists to identify potential viruses."

The US has repeatedly blamed China for the COVID-19 pandemic, with Trump recently lashing out on Twitter, claiming that the "incompetence of China" led to "mass Worldwide killing."

Trump also proclaimed that a laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the first outbreak was reported, had accidentally unleashed the virus.

The US president, nonetheless, had praised Chinaís coronavirus response more than 30 times between January and March as the virus started to spread around the globe, according to a CNN tally.

Chomsky also criticized the US government for lacking "a universal health care system," describing the current one as "ultimate neoliberal."

Drawing a comparison between the US and the Europe, the American professor did say that there were problems in Europe, but added it still enjoys a social democratic structure that can provide the kind of support the US cannot.

"Europe in many ways is worse, because the austerity programs just amplify the danger, because of the severe attack on democracy in Europe, the shifting decisions to Brussels.... So Europe has its own problems, but at least it has the residue of some kind of social democratic structure, which provides some support, which is what I think is lacking in the US."
