Makes one wonder what the upper levels of the administration think about the lower levels. Are they the “Deep State” trying to undermine Trump? Or are they the bureaucrats that do the grunt work all over the government?
And from the NY Times report, “The October 2019 report in particular documents that officials at the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services, and even at the White House’s National Security Council, were aware of the potential for a respiratory virus outbreak originating in China to spread quickly to the United States and overwhelm the nation.
“Nobody ever thought of numbers like this,’’ Mr. Trump said on Wednesday, at a news conference.
In fact, they had.”
