America needs its own ‘Christmas Truce’ to triumph over coronavirus

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

If warring European soldiers could do it a century ago, surely warring American political leaders can do it today. God knows our nation needs a truce. Instead of calling Trump incompetent and corrupt, Pelosi and Schumer could simply explain what they would do differently and why. Ditto for Trump when it comes to their ideas. Both sides should reserve Twitter for information and ideas. An agreement would be nice, but isn’t necessary. All they need do is start behaving as Americans first and partisans second. That shouldn’t be too hard for 30 days. They might even come to enjoy the experience of domestic tranquility. Unity has its own positive power, as Trump’s Friday press conference demonstrated.
