I think they were talking about the NSC pandemic task force.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/03/20/was-white-house-office-global-pandemics-eliminated/

That is still even debated. The impact of any change is unclear and filled with bias. The fact is they don’t like that it’s Jared Kushner. And I agree with that point. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s nonsense to say all these agencies and task forces no longer exists. Look around the globe. How many countries were prepared for this?

" How many countries were prepared for this?"

Probably close to zero but that is not really the point. The point is that while the U.S. had more notice than many other countries Trump was not facing facts nor was he taking steps to prepare the country. Remember Nero fideling while Rome burned...

As Covid-19 spread around the world, can anyone here justify this attitude of the President who said...

"we have it totally under control"

"it will just disappear, just like that",

"it's a problem that will just go away"

"The risk to the American people remains very low"

"No we are not worried at all"

"We pretty much have shut it down"

"It pretty much goes away in April"

"Its the same as the flu"

"We only have 15 people and they are getting better"

"Now they're politicising the Coronavirus and this is their new hoax"

"It is something we have tremendous control over"

"The deaths will be brought down to a very low number"

Well, she is the best looking press secretary so far, I give her that.

That factcheck article has flawed analysis regarding the 600M expiring funds for the Public Health Preparedness and Response fund.

CDC budget is down 900M from 2018 to 2019. You can view the HHS budget for yourself here: https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/fy-2019-budget-in-brief.pdf

Pg 31 has the CDC budget for 2017-19.

600M of that was expiring funds as I mentioned. These funds were hastily re-appropriated AFTER coronavirus. Trump's budget let these funds initially expire. Whoops.

Also, not sure if you've ever worked for a large organization before, but this is definitely "getting rid" of the White House pandemic office:

Quote
“No, the White House didn’t ‘dissolve’ its pandemic response office. I was there.” He countered that office, which he oversaw for about a year starting in July 2018, was folded into another one to streamline a bloated organization and “the combined directorate was stronger because related expertise could be commingled.”

In other words, we fired everyone, slashed the budget, and lumped it under Joe who is the boss' cousin.

Responding to a question regarding President Trump's implied criticism of Vice President Joe Biden wearing a mask while out laying a wreath at a veterans park for Memorial Day, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said it's "peculiar" he doesn't wear one in his home.

DUH?

Biden needs no help in order to look like a fool.

He was doing much better when he stayed underground.

Well speaking of fools, your leader has just accused Twitter of stifling ‘free speech’ when Twitter suggested that some of his lies should be fact checked.

Isn't it amazing that the same lefties/media proponents who utilized the free speech argument to push their agendas, including the slandering of of bunch of Catholic school teenagers, now wants to have everything "fact checked" when the same sort of tactics are used on them? The hypocrisy of the left and their propaganda arm is breathtaking.

Really? You don't think the President lies, let's say, frequently?

Remember now, he is the President of the United States. Shouldn't his citizens be able to rely on his word?

So when he does make 'incorrect statements' shouldn't his citizens be warned that they just might want to fact check the statement?
