Who produces the raw material to manufacture for these again?
Trump says the states should be procuring their own equipment and stop relying in the federal government, but then he has the federal government take away the state's orders from the manufacturers and suppliers. It doesn't get any more bizarre.
Almost as bizarre as Fauci and some Dems'. Fauci said on 1/21 that there's no emerging threat from China. Trump would be a racist if he closed the borders earlier on too. And didnt basically everyone of them openly mock Trump for even mentioning Cloroquine or however you spell it - like what would the President know about this outbreak.. lol
Regarding budgets: I think it was Gov Cuomo who neglected to order the state of NYC more ventilators, twice before this pandemic happened meanwhile In California, the past two Gov's since Arnold neglected to stock his pandemic response plan. Its still Orange man bad.
There is no argument to be made that redeems Trump's actions in this pandemic. This clearly requires a national response, and he is shitting the bed.
The Global Health Security and Biodefense unit — responsible for pandemic preparedness — was established in 2015 by Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice ( here ). The unit resided under the National Security Council (NSC) — a forum of White House personnel that advises the president on national security and foreign policy matters.
In May 2018, the team was disbanded and its head Timothy Ziemer, top White House official in the NSC for leading U.S. response against a pandemic, left the Trump administration, the Washington Post reported ( here ). Some members of the global health and security team were merged into other units within the NSC, the article said.
The reorganization followed John Bolton’s appointment as national security advisor, and the departure of Tom Bossert, the homeland security advisor who the Post wrote “had called for a comprehensive biodefense strategy against pandemics and biological attacks.”
