(AP) — Most American presidents will confront a crisis — or crises — during their time in office, whether it is a natural disaster, war, economic downturn, public health threat or terrorism. Historians say what matters is how they respond. Over the years, some presidents have been far more hands-on than others. Woodrow Wilson was more focused on the end of World War I than a flu virus that was making its way around the globe, ultimately sickening hundreds of thousands of Americans, including the president himself. Barack Obama was in office for just a few months when the first reports came in about the H1N1 virus, which would eventually be declared a pandemic like today’s new coronavirus.
