Nice.

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.”

Trump takes technical  question on hydroxychloroquine and gives answer.  Fauci is asked same question and Trump butts in and won't let him answer.  Now Navarro says he knows more than Fauci.

Trump says his actions on shutting down flights from China in late January saved the country.  Too bad that 40,000 more people were able to enter the country from there after the ban.

Even better, Intel communities (including the CIA) briefed Trump and his administration about the impending pandemic back in January.  It was ignored.  But some briefed Senators believed it and were abled to dump their stock portfolios.

The Trump administration is like a Fiat 500 with a dozen clowns getting out.

I am sure Jared is on it.  He also needs a "cure" before the election.

I think he's trying to fuck this up so he can have a reason to cancel election

Trump's businesses are taking a big hit, and he doesn't have a lot of liquidity.  Also, the Trump organization is barred from receiving any money from the stimulus package.  Hence the push to open things back up.

Trump Is Gutting Our Democracy While We’re Dealing with Coronavirus
The president’s firing of the intelligence watchdog who validated the Ukraine whistle-blower complaint is his latest threat to the rule of law.

Sadly, chances are that you're right.

So what the sam hell is the CDC and NIH for? Before another one of Obama's beauracracy's was born, which US organization was responsibile to handle such a thing? Or did the US not actually have a plan for this shit?

....I would've thought you'd be against bloated governments ;)

Obama appointed someone to the NSC whose job was to deal with this exact scenario. Trump, on his "kill everything Obama", canned the position. Regardless, Trump was briefed numerous times in the last few months about the dangers of COVID and chose to ignore the intelligence.

Oh, and Trump really lost it today.
