Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) nailed Trump with his own budget that tried to cut hundreds of millions of dollars from the CDC before the pandemic.
A new report from The Daily Beast reveals that President Donald Trump and members of the White House coronavirus task force are pressuring officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to change “how the agency works with states to count coronavirus-related deaths.”
Trump refused to release a 17-page CDC guide for safely reopening America, so someone leaked it to the public in the name of public health.
An exclusive report from The Associated Press reveals that President Donald Trump’s administration shelved a 17-page report by a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) team titled “Guidance for Implementing the Opening Up America Again Framework.” The report, the AP notes, “was researched and written to help faith leaders, business owners, educators and state and local officials as they begin to reopen.”
A former CDC director has offered a blunt assessment of President Donald Trump reopening the U.S economy. Richard Besser said minority communities were at greater risk.
Besser was acting head of the Centers for Disease Control for part of Barack Obama’s first term. He told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the country lacked the capacity to safely reopen.
The White House is misleading the American people about a dire warning from the CDC on a second coronavirus wave in the fall.
A CBS News poll found that Republicans trust President Donald Trump more than they trust the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on information regarding the novel coronavirus.
Some key findings:
An exclusive report from Reuters reveals that the Trump administration cut staff members from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who were inside China before its coronavirus outbreak.
Two governors requested coronavirus testing kits for their states, and the CDC wouldn't commit to providing them.
President Donald Trump has canceled his planned visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) headquarters in Atlanta, according to an administration official who declined to be identified.
In a paranoid and bizarre move that could endanger public health, the Trump administration has ordered the CDC not to share basic data with the press.
The man who shut down the government in an effort to stop funding to Obamacare/access to affordable healthcare is now confounded that government wasn't entirely ready for action on Ebola.
The Ebola crisis in West Africa is a deadly serious threat. But for many reasonable, concerned Americans it's become difficult to separate the reality of the devastation occurring on that continent, from the overblown media and political hysteria that's dominating our national news cycle.
The latest Republican blame-fest is centered on the Ebola virus, and as is typically the case, the real culprits are not being held responsible for their morally and socially irresponsible actions.
The President nominated Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, an extremely qualified candidate to replace 'acting' Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin. However, the National Rifle Association blocked Murthy's confirmation because he does not recognize that the NRA is "fourth and all-powerful branch of the federal government" and called for sane gun restrictions to prevent more Americans from dying unnecessarily from the gun violence epidemic.
Buster Wilson lets go of his meat long enough to claim Obama thinks he's crazy and wants to lock him up.
