Failing breaking international law, it's well known that what's required is a binding treaty regarding viral data, however nobody follows the global health regulations, treaty discussions are expensive, and so the WHO doesn't do many of them.

1946 is when it starts. The end date is blurry (as most generational end dates are; boomers are an exception), but is usually said to be around 1965 to 1968.

So trump just barely makes the boomer category.

Not that he doesn't fit the mold pretty well.
