The cover of Edward Segal's new book on crisis management.

Crisis management expert and author Edward Segal today gave President Trump failing grades for his handling of the coronavirus crisis. "The President of the United States is going against important and proven best practices for responding to and managing a crisis, disaster, or other emergency," Segal said.

"From blaming others to making matters worse, Trump is doing and saying things that he should not be doing or saying. His report card for managing the COVID-19 crisis is full of Fs," Segal said. 

"Trump's management of this rapidly developing and steadily worsening public health emergency is providing a textbook example for CEOs, senior staff, boards of directors, and managers at companies and organizations what they should not do when — not if — they have to face their own crisis," he said.  

"It is unfortunate that, by his own actions and words, Trump is making the crisis worse. He is helping to spread anxiety and misinformation faster than the disease is infecting people," Segal said.

Segal has advised clients on how to respond to crisis situations, managed a series of crises as the CEO of two trade associations, and has conducted crisis training sessions for business executives. He is the former marketing strategies columnist for the Wall Street Journal's StartUpJournal.com and the author of the forthcoming book on crisis management: Crisis Ready — 101 Ways to Prepare for and Bounce Back from Disasters, Scandals, and Other Emergencies (Nicholas Brealey/Hachette Distribution).
