    And the simple fact that he literally had a press conference to address the nation and *simultaneously* it was announced ELSEWHERE by the government that the first case of (possibly) de novo disease was reported.

    That’s not handling the current event adequately.
    Oh, geez. Thanks for the correction. I should have been able to figure that out. I can't believe no one called me on that!

    That seems to me to be a problem. But I get hyper critical when it looks like people’s lives are on the line. That’s just me, I guess.
    Ill wait to see what they say and do about this CA case, thats the potential game changer. We seem to have done well in limiting this countries exposure to infections emanating from China. But if it can just get here on its own, then were screwed.

    That explains why you liberals are all cheering for that scenario lol. But the truth is, if that happens it will actually help Trump, not hurt him because only leftist fools would blame Trump for a global pandemic. The rational part of the country will view those that blame him as the fools that they are.

    Nobody blamed him for a "global pandemic." Stick to reality. We blame him for rank incompetence in handling the outbreak as it pertains to here in the United States. If you think I'm wrong, name for me one thing he's done to handle this intelligently. I can name three things right off the bat that he's done to objectively make it worse here. And your only response will be not a rational rebuttal of those things, but to insult me personally.

    Fletch, where are you getting this?

    The cuts started in 2018, as the White House focused on eliminating funding to Obama-era disease security programs. In March of that year, Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer, whose job it was to lead the U.S. response in the event of a pandemic, abruptly left the administration and his global health security team was disbanded.

    That same year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was forced to slash its efforts to prevent global disease outbreak by 80% as its funding for the program began to run out. The agency, at the time, opted to focus on 10 priority countries and scale back in others, including China.

    Also cut was the Complex Crises Fund, a $30 million emergency response pool that was at the secretary of state’s disposal to deploy disease experts and others in the event of a crisis. (The fund was created by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.)

    Overall in 2018, Trump called for $15 billion in reduced health spending that had previously been approved, as he looked at increasing budget deficits, cutting the global disease-fighting budgets of the CDC, National Security Council (NSC), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Health and Human Services (HHS) in the process.

    The effects of those cuts are being felt today. While the CDC announced plans to test people with flu-like symptoms for COVID-19, those have been delayed and only three of the country’s 100 public-health labs have been able to test for coronavirus. The administration’s request for additional funding came roughly two weeks after officials said HHS was almost out of funding for its response to the virus.

    We’ll just keep playing tapes of trump and other Reich-Wing skkkumbags on Ebola, as they actually did as you dishonestly accused. Using trump’s own words, what goes around comes around.

    trumputinistas would be cheering on COVID-19 if Sanders was President, blaming it on communism.Denial of the problem, reactive instead of proactive, stock markets over our health — trump battle cries.

There may be one in the future, but as of today, there is not.
    Which cut in particular are you referring to?

    I only find one use of the word "request"
    And there're multiple instances of cuts mentioned.

    Which one do you think never happened?
    I may be wrong.
