  • Sanders Says Trump 'Misleading' Public on Coronavirus, Pence Unqualified to Head Response

Pence, who has no medical background, cited his handling of the worst HIV outbreak in the state's history while he was governor of in to tout his qualifications for his new gig, even though medical experts say his policies made the crisis worse.

President Trump has tapped Vice President Mike Pence to lead the charge against a possible coronavirus outbreak in the United States, and Whoopi Goldberg has a lot to say about it. According to worldwide reports, Pence had made several ill-informed decisions regarding public health throughout his political career and therefore, one epidemiology professor compared the latest appointment to "putting an arsonist in charge of the fire department".

Birx has spent more than three decades working on HIV/AIDS immunology, vaccine research and global health, according to the White House, which said in a statement that she would "bring her infectious disease, immunologic, vaccine research and interagency coordinating capacity to this position".

But on a day that the White House sought to display a more disciplined strategy to the administration's communications about the virus, Trump used an evening event honoring Black History Month to rail against the news media, claiming it is overstating the threat, and to congratulate himself for keeping the number of cases low.

At the White House conference on February 27, Trump not only said that the United States has the "greatest experts in the world" but chose Pence to decide how to contain the epidemic that originated in China.

Critics have pointed to the HIV outbreak to argue that Pence is the wrong person to lead the response.

Limbaugh said on his show earlier this week that the coverage on the coronavirus has been overhyped by both Democrats and the press in an attempt to harm the president. Alex Azar is the chairman of the government's coronavirus task force for the government broadly.

Earlier in the week, Limbaugh had claimed the coronavirus is being "weaponized" by the Chinese government to damage the USA economy and bring down Donald Trump but is "no worse than the common cold".

Thrasher said that while HIV cases were mounting in Scott County - which lies about 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Louisville, Kentucky - Pence told local officials wondering whether he would approve a needle exchange "that he was going to pray on it".

The Trump administration's approach to the coronavirus so far has faced bipartisan criticism in Washington, and Democrats have slammed Trump's decision to put Pence in charge.

"If somebody had told me to issue this statement, I would have quit", Monica Medina, a former NOAA official, told the Post.

The Trump administration on Friday sought to reassure Americans that it is responding to the threat of a US outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus (Covid-19), as the flu-like illness spread to more countries and stock markets dropped sharply again.

The decision to bring in Pence was not without controversy.

Pence continues to face criticism over a bungled response to an HIV outbreak in IN while he was the state's governor.

"We are all in this together", he informed Limbaugh, imagining that he had already talked to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., along with the Democratic governors of these countries.

"I think the data speaks for itself, that it's decreasing the transmission of infectious diseases", she said. "I mean if the president hadn't taken those unprecedented steps we'd be in a very different place today, Sean".
