Trump administration planning pandemic office at the State Department: report

Source: The Hill


BY JOHN BOWDEN - 07/02/20 10:15 PM EDT

The Trump administration is planning to establish a division dedicated to pandemic response at the State Department after facing criticism earlier this year for shuttering the National Security Council's (NSC) pandemic unit in 2018, according to CNN.

NSC officials hosted an interagency meeting Thursday to discuss plans for the new office, according to the news network.

. . .

The meeting reportedly centered on hammering out details for the new office and working on a proposal that would require President Trump's signature for the office's approval.

The dissolved pandemic response unit, originally named NSC directorate for global health and security and bio-defense, was established by former President Obama during the latter end of his 8-year term. President Trump later shuttered the office in 2018.

6. In no way could he duck them, even though George W. almost seemed to know when to duck.

He did it so well, you'd almost think he'd done it before!



Trump wouldn't stand a chance! 👟👟👟👟👟

8. Stumpy's signature?

Wouldn't that imply he agrees with stay at home, or else wear a mask?

That would be a 180 for sure.....if this quick response team does a good job,

without gop interference...wonderful..

9. There is a problem with the title/headline

Trump is incapable of planning anything. He could fuck up a two car funeral if you spotted him the hearse.

16. I said early this year Pompeo, Barr and Mnuchin are a triumverate

like the old Roman triumvirates. But probably not as good by any means.

18. Is this the same office Obama opened and Trump closed.

We better not let Trump know or he will not re-open it.
