Late Wednesday evening, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany provided crucial updates on President Trump's response to screaming liberals demanding military bases to be renamed as well as critical Coronavirus updates.
As always, here's a quick & easy-to-read breakdown to save you from listening to Fake News leader Jim Acosta.
- Recently, President Trump was asked to change the names of over 10 landmark American military bases such as Fort Bragg, Fort Hood, & Fort Benning due to their ties to the confederacy. His response:
- These bases have become a piece of great American heritage.
- The soldiers who won 2 World Wars were trained here.
"My administration will not even consider the requested changes."
- The Coronavirus Task Force met Tuesday for a briefing.
- 2 studies were highlighted
- First: 3.1 million lives were saved in Europe due to mitigation, which suggests the US prevented over 3 million deaths.
- Second: The United States shutdown prevented 50 million additional COVID-19 cases.
- The Washington Post confirmed that 2 separate methods were use to reach these conclusions.
- During the shutdown, there was the risk of American meatpacking facilities shutting down. Due to the action of President Trump, this did not happen, and these facilities are currently operating at 95%.
- Due to the public/private partnerships that President Trump forged, testing capacity in minority communities is sufficient and effective.
- Currently, 70% of testing sites operate in moderate to high socially vulnerable areas.
- The HHS Office of minority health offered a competitive funding opportunity to build a strategic network of national, state territory, tribal, & local community based organizations that provide vital health information & link to services for racial and ethnic minorities.
- Funding will be awarded by end of June.
