    Trump team failed to follow NSC’s pandemic playbook
    The 69-page document, finished in 2016, provided a step by step list of priorities – which were then ignored by the administration.
    Trump's administration was briefed on the playbook’s existence in 2017, said four former officials.

    Heres a thought. In times of crisis and national emergency the Governor of NY can invoke eminent domain to convert buildings in midtown Manhattan into hospitals, 725 5th Ave. would be a good place to start. Also consider 845 United Nations Plaza and Park Avenue & 59th Street.

    Think what you like. But think critically and independently. Not think like a cult member who fights to the last breath to defend the dear leader Think. The thought process is that of a cult member. They don't care what others outside of believers believe . It's what I think about MAGA people. I have said this for years and I see no reason to change. He said he knew his supporters and that he could kill someone in broad day light and they would still love him and never abandon him. The cult of personality is so powerful.

    How is your family doing this period ? Point for your reflection, you responded to my post nearly immediately after I posted to defend dear leader. You must have been at your post at the ready to defend your dear leader. I have not posted for an evening and the morning but you were here to defend Trump and did so immediately. What does that say if not cult like devotion ??? You have critized Cuomo have I defended Cuomo once, no. If Cuomo messed up let him face the consequences later at election time, no big deal to me. I don't have a devotion to any elected official. But Trump supporters do to where they stay vigilant to defend him as if they are serving some religious practice.

    Due to a lack of COVID19 testing, this deadly coronavirus has been spreading UNDETECTED in the U.S. for months.

    Warning sign#NYC sets the fastest pace of #COVID19 deaths that are *MORE THAN DOUBLING* every 2 days, followed by #Spain (Catalonia, Madrid) and #Paris (Ile-de-#France).

    Deaths in #Louisiana and NJ are *doubling every 2 days*, as #coronavirus deaths in #FL accelerate.

    I am surprised the National Guard Unit hasn't set up a portable hospital, or at least a staging space. I know that area has a lot of people but it could help with the hospitals being overwhelmed.

    Dr, I see your game..

    You are just trying to show how bad Trump has been.... This is your platform....you have nothing else to get him on anymore, economy was Roaring! This is all you got, sad.

    Before you say anything negative about Trump AND telling us all how bad he has been doing how about telling US ALL where this VIRUS ORIGINATED from?

    You sure seem to ignore that!

    You know, accountability?

    Dr, putting POLITICS ASIDE, I don’t know what anybody could have done to stop th is from traveling the world....

    You act like he was supposed to but some huge barrier around the country and nothing gets in.......

    Thst is the real problem, anything he did the politics just comes out like xenophobia...

    No matter what he does right or wrong it will be bad.....he can’t do anything right no matter what he does according to the opposition to Trump.

    Dr, don’t post media sources that just show negativity towards Trump.

    He could himself find a cure and those media sources wouldn’t even acknowledge it so save your opposition bullspit.
