Neither was US intelligence. Trump was briefed on the threat twice in January... But everything was ignored, and lied about. In the Woodward tapes...

This is not factual - the briefings were not ignored and Woodward is spinning to put it mildly because last January Trump declared the Corona virus a Public Health Emergency and restricted travel from China:

"Today President Trump took decisive action to minimize the risk of novel coronavirus in the United States..." The declaration of a public health emergency... enables the government to take temporary measures to contain the spread of the virus... [the U.S. is suspending] entry of most travelers arriving from China... if they are not U.S. citizens.

And for this, the Party of the Pandemic called President Trump a racist!

the American Civil Liberties Union has warned that the administration's measures infringe on civil rights. Any detention of travelers or citizens must be "scientifically justified and no more intrusive on civil liberties than absolutely necessary," said Jay Stanley, an ACLU senior policy analyst.
