How Is Rural America Preparing for the Corona Virus?
“A true test of leadership is how well you function in a crisis.” — Brian Tracy
President Trump has shown time and time again that he cannot represent the best interest of the country in a time of crisis. The CoronaVirus is no exception.
No Dem Left Behind is increasingly worried about the misinformation that is coming out of the White House under the leadership of President Trump. Wednesday’s press conference might have been the worst display of Presidential leadership in the history of our country. At a time when Americans are worried and concerned for our safety, President Trump held a press conference where he was making jokes and directly contradicting the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The doctors and scientists that work for the CDC are the best in the world at what they do, and for that we are grateful to have them. However, the Trump Administration and the Republican majority in the Senate have not shown that same gratitude. Rather, they have slashed the operating budget of the CDC and fired many key CDC staff so that they can continue to provide tax breaks to corporations and the top .01%.
Where do we go from here?
“We want to put the public at ease, for now the CoronaVirus is contained,” said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D. “We understand that this may be concerning, but based on what we know now, we still believe the immediate risk to the American public is low.”
We will continue to monitor the situation and check in regularly on updates from the CDC and the National Institutes of Health NIH. For now all campaign events will continue as scheduled and if you are feeling well we look forward to seeing you out on the campaign trail. This time of crisis we want to send our prayers and well wishes for those around the globe that have been affected by this virus.
