Trump responds to Cryin’ Chuck Schumer “always complaining”…

Last night on CNN, Chuck Schumer claimed that Trump has no one in charge of producing and distributing medical equipment and suggested that Trump needed to appoint a senior military official as czar to make things happen more efficiently:

THE HILL – Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday evening called on President Trump to appoint a senior military official to serve as a czar in charge of producing and distributing medical equipment, arguing that Trump’s coronavirus task force is not up to the job.

“There’s a dramatic shortage of all the needed supplies or most of them, whether it’s masks, whether it’s [Personal Protective Equipment] PPE … whether it’s ventilators. And we have no one really in charge,” Schumer said in an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett. “We have this awful spectacle of governors bidding against one another.”

This morning Trump responded, pointing out he already has an Admiral in charge of distribution and essentially told Cryin’ Chuck Schumer to stop complaining…



Trump continues reminding Schumer, and everyone else for that matter, that they are shipping many of these supplies directly to hospitals…

Schumer had told CNN that “one unnamed governor even told him that he has reached out to Sweden in a desperate search to find more ventilators.” But what’s wrong with that? If states can get them from Sweden, they should! It’s not like the federal government has to be the one and only supplier of medical supplies. In fact Trump keeps telling the states that they should be buy directly and that the federal government should be a backup.
