Jared Kushner: States can’t use our federal stockpile of medical supplies

Coronavirus Taskforce briefing at the White House

Perhaps because I am not watching the news, I feel like not enough has been made of the fact that Donald Trump and his administration are making the choice to not fully support “blue states” in the pandemic. Trump is literally sending all of the supplies to the states which supported him in 2016, and leaving Democratic-voting states to fend for themselves, or he’s giving the blue states broken equipment or only a fraction of the resources given to red states. It’s one of the most shocking things that’s happened in my lifetime, where a sitting president is truly trying to kill off Americans who (he assumes) don’t support him politically.

Speaking of, Jared Kushner is now sort of in charge of the coronavirus task force, and The Boy decided to “brief” reporters at the White House yesterday. There were questions about the federal stockpile of PPE and ventilators and Kushner said this:

Jared wants everyone to know that the federal stockpile is for the nation and not for…you know, states. States in dire need of supplies from the federal stockpile. And here’s Prince Jared arguing that he knows better than governors and senators about individual state’s supplies.

You might think, as many governors have, that they are seeking out supplies from the federal government before the pandemic peaks in their individual states. These would be considered scientific projections, made by scientists and doctors, driven by data of what we know about the coronavirus and infection rates. But Jared is still convinced he knows better: “People who have requests for different products and supplies, a lot of them are doing it based on projections which are not the realistic projections.” Easy-peasy, Jared says, when faced with Democratic governors projecting the need for thousands of ventilators: that’s not realistic! My projections are better than yours, he says.

      Uh, it’s EXACTLY why we have a federal stockpile you ridiculous ignorant plastic tool. The fact that he is ignorant is incredibly obvious. The fact that he doesn’t realize his ignorance is beyond belief. The average American learns about this “job” of the federal government in beginning Civics which is taught alongside the Founding of America in the FOURTH grade.

      And now everyone can feel better about not going to Harvard.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        To say that smarmy, smug face is SO punchable is the BIGGEST understatement in the world!

        This idiot needs to crack open a civics book for once. He might learn what the “Federal Gov.” is comprised of and for.

      • Traveler says:

        Snappyfish, It couldn’t have been said better nor more succinctly; thank you.

        I have no words for the level of evil that would take this opportunity to punish certain states/governors. When all is said and done, they should be tried for war crimes.

        Traveler, at the very least Trump and Kushner should be charged with negligent homicide for the deaths they willingly have and will continue to cause.

        Also, I thought Trump’s face and voice was vomit-inducing, but looking and hearing Psycho Slumlord Ken Doll is enough to give me nightmares…and DAYmares! :S

      And this administration is literally killing the people of this country. Trump, his sycophantic cabinet, his advisors, and those republican state governments are killing us.
      I hope there’s a special place in hell for anyone involved in any of this.

    • The Truth Piper says:

      POTUS Trump should NOT have his daughter and son-in-law working as Senior WH Advisors.

      Trump-GOP have decimated the federal government and destroyed our democracy and the fibers of our “Of the People, By the People, For the People” government foundation with its checks and balances. As a result, as the U.S. experiences a real crisis, we have NO leadership and NO coordinated national response.

      Trump claims he failed to respond to COVID-19 because he was distracted by the impeachment. In February, the GOP failed to impeach Trump and hold him accountable for abusing the powers of his office and obstructing justice — which Trump continues doing. Absolute power corrupts.

      Trump-GOP have failed the American people. They’re an existential threat to the U.S., the world and planet Earth and they must be voted out of office.

      WAKE UP America.

    • SarSte says:

      Here we are, and yet most Americans think Trump is handling the pandemic well and his approval rating is the highest since he was sworn in. Brace yourself for November 2020.

      • dreamchild says:

        The only Americans that think Trump is doing a good job, are for the most part, Americans that will probably get sick and die from the virus. These people believe everything Fox News put out and they continue to lie shamelessly. I was watching MSNBC and three of the white reporters were lamenting how their parents would not take seriously the implications of the virus because Fox/Trump. These professionals were so frustrated at their parents lack of awareness because these are the people that raised them. SMH.
        As a black American I have always had a healthy skepticism of the government because of past behavior. We have not been treated equally as Americans and don’t have a lot of expectations because of that going forward. However, there is a bright spot on the horizon for all Americans who detest this as*hole and crew running the show. They are advocating for mail in ballots for the primaries and hopefully for the November elections. This will make it easier for Every American to cast their votes and if that happens those cheating Republican mofos are out of there. Pray for us.

      • What...now? says:

        His approval rating went up initially, but is beginning to fall–and dramatically in some areas. Right now he stands at about 40% approval — which is 40% too much, but . . .’Murica. 40% approval means it’s a hard, steep climb to reelection. Biden is still polling higher than he who will not be named, by double digits in some areas.

        He’s gonna have a hard time winning Michigan again–a state he desperately needs–considering he slags their governor and the governor said that medical contractors were told NOT to send necessary medical equipment there. That’s a winning strategy. This virus won’t only kill “the libs.”

        Compare that to Gov. Cuomo who’s approval was okay before this happened but now that he’s taken such a decisive lead in this pandemic, his approval in NY is up in the 70s to high 80s depending on which party. 70s from repub and independents. Other governors are getting higher than normal ratings from their constituents based on how they are handling the crisis. I think Newsom’s numbers are up too. . .

        We haven’t even hit peak ‘Rona, yet. Wait until all those magats lose someone due to this thing…for a few of them, it WILL hit home and sour them to the mess we have in the white house–especially if they lose their job, and don’t qualify for any $$ or any healthcare. Not all, of course, because most of them are deranged losers of the highest order.

        It sucks that tens of thousand might die because of the staggering incompetence we see — and that NO ONE will do anything about it, but make excuses how “oh we didn’t knoooooowwww.” All I can think about his how Putin laughs himself silly every damn day at us, because even though the corruption has been laid bare — so many don’t care or are too afraid too do anything about it. It is astounding to me to see this and deeply frustrating.

      • Leesa says:

        His approval went as high as it’s been, which isn’t very high – somewhere in the mid to high 40s. Compare that to governors or other world leaders who are in the 70s-80s and it’s clear that he has an approval ceiling – his core thinks he’s doing well for now. No one else does.

      • Lisa says:

        Magats who lose someone close to them will just blame the democrats or whomever Trump tells them to. In Germany after Hitler died, they mourned him.

      • Gaah says:

        The poll that came out today says that 55% now disapprove how he is managing the pandemic. A bump up is normal as a rally around the flag attitude . But his bump was only 6 points where other leaders of other countries had bumps of 20%. It won’t last for him. And he is making every mistake. Wait until the red states get hit hard and they will not be so kind to him.

    • Becks1 says:

      Right???? He’s so stupid. he knows that….people live in the states, right? People who are US citizens and who the federal government is supposed to serve and protect? Its not like the state governments want the supplies just to put them in a warehouse. they want to use them to SAVE PEOPLE. That’s how its supposed to work.

    • Aimee says:

      The stockpile is for all their rich friends! Duh!

      when I read his statement yesterday, I was like “oh, ‘our’ stockpile…as in ‘the Trump Companies’ stockpile…which they can sell to the highest bidder and make $ off it”.

    The tax dollars from people who live in states paid for that stock pile. The fact that they are using it to extract favors is criminal. As in against the law. If, god willing, Joe Biden wins, he better not do the “let’s just move forward.” There people are dangerous and should be in jail.

    • MrsRobinson says:

      A friend at Stanford hospital told me that they were expecting a delivery about 2 weeks ago of protective equipment and that the federal govt commandeered the delivery. So they’re not just managing the stockpile.

        What the ever-loving sh*t? That just boggles the mind. I mean, I knew they were criminals busy criming, but I really hope that (and things like that) don’t go unpunished. And that this is the kind of crisis that brings about real actual change when it’s all said and done because this just can’t happen. Ever again. I want public hearings! And not like the Mickey Mouse crap they did for the impeachment. Seriously, Trump, Mitch and company, you’re going to have to answer for this crap!

        Rant over. For now.

      • Emily says:

        Trump is also taking PPE from other countries too. He commandeered a delivery on route to Germany. What is he doing with all this equipment if he’s not sharing it with the states?

  9. Chica71 says:

    For anyone who doubts white privilege, Jared Kushner is the poster child. Not successful in any area of his life, yet he get access and a seat at the table to make decisions about things.like the federal government, which he clearly does not understand. He gets to kill people and will get a pat on back saying job well done.
    Yet his poor decision making has resulted on a 200+ million loan default because they can’t pay bills.
    Wait for Corona in red States, perfect storm of ignorance and religious intolerance.
    Jared needs to be reminded that the largest portion of taxes and government money are generated in California and NY area. The longer NY and CA stay off line , the more painful the coming disaster in red States especially those with little social nets, Obamacare or Medicaid Expansion. Trump needs blue states to carry red sates. Sweet Irony

    • Lightpurple says:

      Massachusetts, although a smaller state, contributes far more to the federal government than most others, behind NY and CA. We are a hot spot and Trump is ignoring us and refusing our governor’s requests for help.. The plot to kill us off for revenge will backfire when we can no longer pay everyone else’s bills.

    There’s a NYT editorial entitled “ Jared Kushner is going to kill us all” today.

      • E.B. Mann says:

        Oh, I can help with that, Christin: The recent bailout included a change to the real-estate depreciation cap, which had been set at half a mil. (Rich real-estate moguls, ahem, could write off the depreciation of their holdings against other income up to $500,000.) The bailout removed the cap and made it RETROACTIVE for 2 years, meaning that giant orange assholes can now file amended tax returns for those years and receive refunds. Yeah.

  11. Sean says:

    So…the federal stockpile is for the nation, not the states. But the states are in the nation and American citizens live in these states and the federal government is supposed to protect American citizens.

    I hate this administration so much and people continue to support them. In my darkest thoughts, I find myself wishing Trump supporters will be hit the hardest by this. Sometimes, that includes my own family. God, it’s 7:46 AM here and I already feel like I need a drink. I don’t know what to say.

    My blue state has a Republican governor.
    A Republican governor who was a Medicaid commissioner, a Secretary of a state Health & Human Services, and the CEO of one of the nation”s most highly rated health plans.
    My state is a hot spot.
    Hundreds of medical professionals in our hospitals have tested positive for the virus.
    Our Republican governor has gone public about the problem of states being forced to outbid one another for supplies, thinking they have a deal, only to learn that the federal government has then outbid them all.
    Our Republican governor has gone public with the problem that Trump only fulfilled 10% of his request for equipment, here in a hot spot.
    Our Republican governor bought 3 million masks; Trump seized those masks as they went through shipping; Trump has NOT reimbursed the taxpayers of Massachusetts for those seized masks.
    Yesterday, our Republican governor announced that he had reached a deal directly with the Chinese government to buy masks. To avoid Trump seizing those masks, Robert Kraft gave our governor the use of the New England Patriots plane.
    Yesterday, morning, most of Massachusetts watched videos of masks being loaded onto that plane in China.
    We held our breaths in prayer that Trump would not seize the plane when it landed.
    Last night, our Republican governor greeted the plane, emphasizing that such steps were necessary because of what Trump has done.
    This morning, trucks are leaving Gillette stadium; filled with mask. We are sharing our masks with New York.
    Trump is deliberately killing Americans.

    • lizzieb says:

      Omg….they really are murdering Americans. Yet I see online that some religious leaders are still stating this admin is doing God’s work. I weep for everyone.God bless you all.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        I’m sitting here on the other side of the world and trying to follow what’s going on in the US – and it feels like I’m watching a dystopic novel play out. I fear for all Americans – your country is held hostage by a political cult of malicious morons and though I’m not particularly religious I find myself praying for you all.

      • Emily says:

        Trump really is murdering people. It’s in a less obvious way than shooting people on 5th Avenue but he’s doing it and getting away with it. In my darkest thoughts, I wish someone would assassinate him but rational me what’s to see him tried and punished for his crimes so he goes down in history as a monster not a martyr.

        In Canada, even our conservative politicians are showing leadership and getting behind our liberal government and working together. It’s really not that difficult – Trump is so unqualified and unfit.

    • Prof Trelawney says:

      I’m in MA too Lightpurple, thanks for covering this so cogently… I’ve been stressed and not following it as closely as I’d like, but yes, here’s hoping we can continue to work around the orange menace and his awful regime. Stay safe…

      • Lightpurple says:

        Stay safe, Prof Trelawney. I’m not a fan of him for other reasons but Baker’s press conferences, while not on par with Cuomo’s, are informative. Healthcare is his policy wonk drug, as opposed to transportation, which is his failure. He has good people working with him, they really are fighting for us.

        Stay safe everyone.

    • Giddy says:

      Thank God your masks made it. Trump was probably congratulating himself and bragging about his high ratings when so many watched that plane land. He is insane and I honestly believe that his actions constitute murder.

      • Lightpurple says:

        The masks that came directly to MA from China made it. The first set of masks Baker bought in the US that were being shipped through US ports were seized by Trump.

    • Ali says:

      @lightpurple I am in WA and followed that story all day yesterday. Im not a Robert Kraft fan but he did an amazing thing for the people of MA and NY.

    • Green_Eyes says:

      I wish more people knew about this. I live in Kansas and have been following Trump and his band of crook’s move from day one. I am disabled and as Drs say on the high end of high risk for Clovid-19 so nothing better to do. I am not a ventilator candidate so I avoid people other than my husband (also high risk). Lately I question a lot of people I grew up with that still support Trump and am pleasantly surprised by those who have stopped drinking the orange kool-aid and seeing the truth themselves. I wish the media would actually cover more of this type of thing that the administration is actually doing. To air on a grand scale on a major network what your Governor in Massachusetts and Roger Kraft had to do to insure that the masks went where they were meant to go & needed I think would wake some more people up. (Then again some there is just no hope for). I liked the Patriots before… you can bet if I live to see another football season I will be sitting in front of our tv cheering For the Patriots During every televised game. My biggest fear is not that I don’t survive this (though most of my family may not. I’m in bad shape, my hubby is high risk, my dad is in kidney failure w/ Alz & mom gets chemo shots every 6 weeks – had to miss twice now too dangerous for her, my brother in law is fighting lung cancer, SIL is diabetic, sister is high risk w/ chron’s and god bless her in charge of hospital cleaning)… no my fear is this next election will Not just be hijacked by Russians again, but rather it will be canceled all together by Trump due to this war as he calls it. He won’t leave and who will make him?
      I hope it’s ok I that I say this.. I am not a bible thumper (I can’t even go on FB the crazy has come home especially among Trumpsters).. but I do pray.. and I had been asking God every day to please bless the different countries, our states, our country..I’m just down Now to God please bless the world and all you know who need you most.

      • Lightpurple says:

        Kraft was on CNN being interviewed last night. The man does have some serious issues and done many wrong things but this isn’t the first time Kraft has done something like this. But he shouldn’t have had to do this. Trump should have given Baker what we need and not confiscated the order we paid for.

    • Rebsm says:

      He’s also been doing this to other countries orders of PPE. It’s happened to Canada, France and Belgium from what I understand. We’ll have a shipment on the way then the plane is redirected to land in the US and the PPE is confiscated. Him and his lackeys are terrible. At the end of this they will have been responsible for so many deaths across the world. Trump wasn’t joking when he said he could kill people and his base wouldn’t blink an eye. As a Canadian my heart breaks for what the people of the US are going through because of Trump and his minions.

      • Marv says:

        He´s done that to Germany as well. The PPE consignment had been bought at 3M, was already on the way to Germany, and the US simply tripled the price, disregarded the former contract and unloaded the container in Bangkok. This whole thing has been confirmed today by our State Secretry of Health.

        It is still, after several years, reaching new lows what the USA has become nowadays. At least the government. There is def. no friendship or morals lost anymore…

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        He’s clearly trying to stockpile as much PPE as he can get his little hands on in order to blackmail the rest of the world to a) kiss his fat lard ass, b) make them pay for it through the nose and then some and c) to cause as much damage as he can to the global economy as he thinks its going to ‘Make America Great Again’. Its not and it will bite him in the ass, I was reading that the UK is or was refusing to buy the Chinese PPE as the NHS consider it to be sub par quality that won’t protect anyone. Plus I’ve read that intel reports have said that China has been actively hindering research into the virus as they race to cover it up.

        This will come back to haunt him and the US as a nation – the rest of the world won’t forget what he and GOP have done and they won’t be quick to come to his rescue because of it. I really fear for the good innocent people of the US who just want to live.

        At this rate he won’t have a base left as he’s going to kill them all.

      • lizzieb says:

        @digitalunicorn. You are so right. The world will not forget. Some of the things the admin has done are comparable to war profiteering/ war crimes. Still my heart goes out to the American people.

      • Sunny in CDA says:

        Trump just ordered 3M to stop selling N95 respirators to Canada. My American friends you live in a dictatorship. Forget the free market. Forget that 3M has operations around the world. He is ordering private companies to kill others because they are not American. This will not be forgotten.

      • Arpeggi says:

        At least 3M is fighting back and is telling the federal administration this is bad business. For instance Trump might want to block 3M to ship masks to Canada, but many Canadian nurses are crossing the border daily to go work in US hospitals… That can be stopped too ya know? We’re all in this together and not recognizing this or trying to put the blame on a country or ethnicity ultimately will make everything worst

      • Mini says:

        Last week Trump wanted troops on the Canadian border – as if anyone wants to go to the US these days. Trudeau subtly mentioned in his speech today the thousands of Canadian healthcare workers that work in the US in a response to this. He also went on to say that he is confident that shipments won’t be blocked and trade will continue to flow between the 2 countries.

    • Lucy says:

      I am so thankful you received the masks without the cult leader doing anything. I wish I could share your story and Rebsm’s so that the people who think he is doing a wonderful job would know just what he is actually doing. I just cannot understand how people think he is great!

        This is what both Trump and the GOP have been working 2 for the past 4 years, they want full control of all 3 branches and will do whatever it takes to consolidate that and keep themselves in power.

        They are parlaying the pandemic into a crisis so that they can do exact that – they are stockpiling and seizing medical equipment to create a massive disaster which is their excuse to suspend the constitution and American democracy so Trump can become Emperor and daughter wife can take his place.

I have lived in a country where there were constant military coups, outright killing of those who were part of the last overthrown administration, reporters “disappeared”…I’m having serious PTSD right now not only from the stay-at-home/quarantine but also seeing what this government is doing. I said in 2016, even before then, and it’s all being confirmed now. This is how a dictatorship operates. Human life is worthless to them. And don’t forget: their base included/includes over 50% white women who voted for 45. White supremacy wins out over everything in this country, no matter what the risk even to people’s own interests (see what’s happening with abortion rollbacks across the country).

        There is an article in the last day or so by Charles M. Blow in the NYTimes regarding the fact that this pandemic in U.S. is hitting Black and Brown communities the worst and will continue to get worse due to the gross inequities in health care both presently and historically and the physical effects of racism on the body that show up in myriad ways. And another scary part of this is that life and death decisions are being made in a medical industry that has historically been brutal to Black and Brown folk, and there may be no oversight, people passing alone. And it is largely people of color who are the essential workers at ground level, many of whom have no choice but to venture out in dire conditions.

        I have panic attacks when I think about watching the tv series Handmaid’s Tale. I remember being fresh to this country when the original movie came out based on Margaret Atwood’s book. It traumatized me for the last 30 years and I probably shouldn’t have watched the tv show because even though I know things like masks are to help us, it’s triggering to think about how much even the show’s updated re-write–including visuals and design–is prophetic (or whatever the word is for when something is predicted at the same moment it’s actually happening…)… I’m so, so scared but also trying to keep going and trust in…something…

    I am so grateful for the leadership of our elected members in my part of the world, Western Australia. The vid is worth a watch…shows the great leadership of our Premier, Mark McGowan in his efforts to cheer up our very frightened and confused kids, by eggs-empting the Easter Bunny from our strict travel restrictions.

      Essie, the rest of Australia would like to remind him he is actually in Australia ; W. A. is not an island.

      • Essie says:

        @R what an odd sentiment. The Premier was using figurative speech to describe the extent of the border closures. We have many vulnerable communities throughout our state, in particular our remote indigenous communities. I highly doubt anyone in WA or the rest of Australia for that matter, resents proactive government measures taken out to minimise the spread of COVID-19…except for those who selfishly insist on breaking the social isolation rules currently in place.

    • R says:

      Essie, it’s not an odd sentiment; it’s a fact.

      • Essie says:

        @R Semantics. Do you also take issue with other states and territories who have enforced border restrictions, or are you just pissed off with WA in general?

      • R says:

        All have their limitations. I was going to go deeper with this reply since you asked, I honestly don’t have the energy though.

      • Essie says:

        @R unprecedented times call for unprecendented measures. Our Premier has made a very good call by taking advantage of our already isolated geography, not just to save lives, but also to save jobs. His reasoning is valid and on point. People are always going to whinge that these restrictions are such an imposition on their daily lives, but the alternative is carrying on as usual and allowing the virus to spread exponentially. My year 2 students get this, it’s a shame so many adults are incapable of looking at the broader picture, be it due to their selfishness or plain ignorance. There is NO perfect solution, for this is not a perfectly behaving virus.

        Its like thinking that ANYONE in this camp could be a better or a good person— NO good peopel would EVER associate with them or even be allowed to STAY in the vicinity of them– once they sniff you out as someone with fairness and morals, thy will kick you out and work to hurt you financially, politically, legally……

        It is therefore IMPOSSIBLE that a good person could ever be that close to this murderous tyrant.

        I am literally so shocked right now- I know I shouldnt really be because history tells us this thing happens – a tyrant comes in, charms or lies or overtakes and they begin a slaughter campaign- this happens even in other smaller countries and this isnt “new”– but to SEE it with my own eyes, on my own clock, and in the country that I used to call home !??!! That just hits so different…. I am so – really I dont know the words– but to know that people are being sacrificed like this…… literally killed out of hatred, selfishness, racism, partisanship — we are literally in the midst of a Genocide / Purge and I would never have dreamed it to be happening.
        Not that it was very far away. It was happening already, at 1/500th of the speed, but this pandemic, where many lands are using this as an opportunity for good, this land is using it as an opportunity for evil.

    You can’t fix arrogance and stupid. It says on the agency’s website that is their mission:

    “Strategic National Stockpile is the nation’s largest supply of life-saving pharmaceuticals and medical supplies for use in a public health emergency severe enough to cause local supplies to run out. When state, local, tribal, and territorial responders request federal assistance to support their response efforts, the stockpile ensures that the right medicines and supplies get to those who need them most during an emergency. Organized for scalable response to a variety of public health threats, this repository contains enough supplies to respond to multiple large-scale emergencies simultaneously.”

      Thank you for posting.

    • Thea says:

      They changed the wording this morning – probably on orders from the real boy. Now it says the stockpile’s role “is to supplement state and local supplies during public health emergencies. Many states have products stockpiled, as well.” These people have no shame.

      And how dumb is Jared. The stockpile is for the nation not the states? Who’s the nation? Well, maybe the states should keep their money and not give it to the feds. California gives way more than we get.

      • theotherViv says:

        German government representative for state of Berlin confirmed today in a press conference that US intercepted a shipment of masks for Germany and redirected them, so they are not arriving in Berlin on Sunday as planned. We have over 2300 medical professionals tested positive so far and are in need of protecting the rest of our first responders just like any other country. The representative called Trumps behaviour “Piraterie” which basically means it’s downright theft. None of Europe’s COVID projections included robbery, so we better brace ourselves. This is getting shittier by the minute.

  29. Tia Maria says:

    As someone from the U.K., can anyone explain the difference between the federal government and the states / governors? If they are stockpiled by the federal government for the use of the nation, do the states not make up the nation? What would the stockpiling be used for if not for this kind of scenario? Genuinely confused by the logic of this.

    • Lightpurple says:

      There is no logic. The federal stockpile exists to be shared where needed. Trump has decided to hoard it and share only with governors who talk nice to him in public from states that voted for him. Florida got everything it asked for, NY, MA, ME, and CO got next to nothing.

    • Jerusha says:

      There is no logic. The Fed govt is supposed to marshall its vast resources for the good of the nation wherever needed, but this is the dysfunctional trump crime family we’re talking about. They have succeeded in crippling all the agencies tasked to deal with emergencies and the bottom line is they really don’t give a fuck about people suffering and dying. They only respond, and respond ineffectually, to shore up their power.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        They are dysfunctional and stupid crime family at that – a real mob family would have done a far better job than this shower of pathetic wannabe’s.

    • Veronica S. says:

      It’s complex, and it can vary dramatically different depending on what type of law field it’s addressing, but in the simplest overview, the idea is that the states function as essentially sovereign answering only to the federal government. Hence “United States” – it’s basically a bunch of functioning governments agreeing to work together under a larger government. It’s actually a somewhat sensible setup for us because the United States is enormous and most states have dramatically different problems to address that are better dealt with by people living there, but it also means you get major cultural shifts across the United States due to discrepancies in demographics, income, infrastructure. It’s really useful if you have something like, say, minimum wage – because while the government can set a minimum standard that states can use if they choose, it allows states the say, “That actually won’t work for us” and can pick a higher or lower number that overrides it based on their median income needs. In the most extreme situation, it’s meant to allow states to protect themselves against a corrupt federal government – and hoo boy, aren’t we getting a thoughtful lesson on the significance of states’ rights right now.

      What he’s saying here is a load of shit, though. Those federal stockpiles are absolutely intended to help states get more product in times of crisis. That’s why it’s purchased with the tax dollars paid to the government BY PEOPLE LIVING IN THE STATES. We have a federal government precisely because we are such a large geographic area, and it can deal with issues like pandemics and recessions that involves the health and safety of multiple states across the entire country.

    Those states should withhold their tax money from the federal government and use it to fight this on their own. It is clear that Trump wants to have his ass kissed in order to do his job and he is ignorant of the fact that the “Blue” states send far more money to the Fed than they take and his beloved “Red” states almost always take more than they give.

    I do believe a congressional inquiry will be held once this man is out of office and plenty of indictments will be in the offing. Assuming Trump does not try to declare Martial Law and suspend the election (not as crazy as it seems frankly)

  47. L4frimaire says:

    The Trump administration is an absolute disgrace to this country. This is like latter day-Mugabe level targeted neglect, and what’s worse is the fact no one in his party calls him on it. This Kushner guy needs to be brought before congressional committee for his gross negligence and incompetence. He was never vetted for anything, yet was supposed to solve the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and now in charge of Coronavirus response from the Federal government? How can anyone support this level of incompetence, nepotism and corruption? They should all be in prison and Kushner with his waxworks face, needs to be literally booted out.

  48. ChillyWilly says:

    Anyone who thinks Kushner,Trump and the rest of this regime are merely ignorant, unqualified and incompetent are not seeing the bigger picture. They are all of those things but they are also JUST PLAIN EVIL. I guarantee SOMEONE in the Trump Crime Family is making money off of this pandemic and that is why they are doing such a heinous job of controlling the virus.

  49. So let me get this straight – the States that they do not deem worthy are denied the already promised supplies and then told to find their own supplies which the federal government then outbids and stockpiles so they will not be able to use them too…. yeah that tracks with these pirates.

There was a comment on social media from a local commentator that this was too much even though she sympathized with the American healthcare workers.

    Who is the stockpile for if not healthcare workers in various states?? There are no “federal” hospitals other than maybe VA hospitals, but those are run by the state also. Am I missing something? Is the stockpile supposed to be for the military?

  57. Jaded says:

    Interestingly, 3M has pushed back against Trump. From this morning’s Globe & Mail in Canada:

    “In a statement on Friday morning, 3M said the American government has invoked the Defense Production Act to force the company to prioritize orders for N95 respirators that come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).”

    “The Administration also requested that 3M cease exporting respirators that we currently manufacture in the United States to the Canadian and Latin American markets. There are, however, significant humanitarian implications of ceasing respirator supplies to health care workers in Canada and Latin America, where we are a critical supplier of respirators,” 3M statement said.

    The company went on to warn the measure could backfire because of potential retaliations from other countries.”

    I am sick at heart at what’s going on south of our border. My BFF’s daughter is a nurse at a hospital in Detroit. She says it’s utter madness and her mum here in Canada is going insane with worry. This touches everyone.

    • Pineapple says:

      If FEMA was doing it’s job … that would be one thing. Competently getting PPE to all of the States that desperately need it. But they are not. Trump is stockpiling for his own profit, it sounds like. In which case, this is ludicrous and I hope Nancy Pelosi and all of The Democrats are taking note because this finally sounds like something Trump could go to jail for.

      He knows full well how serious this situation is. Not providing PPE? That is criminal.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Literally, all of these shortages are artificial. Completely and utterly unnecessary if they had utilized the DPA earlier or, God forbid, stockpiled literally anything like they’d been warned years back.

  65. adastraperaspera says:

    Finally! Kushner gives us the answer to why it’s been taking months to coordinate the Covid-19 response while people die–he needed time to organize his network of mob buddies to retool their drug running operations and take over our federal stockpile of supplies. They are now allegedly selling those off to companies and middle men who then sell them back to the states, generating a huge profit and probably loads of kickbacks to the Trumps and GOP. Also, let’s not forget that the head of our Department of Transportation is Elaine Chao–whose family runs the very shady shipping company, Foremost. This is the company that has made McConnell most of his cash, as it was his father-in-law who gave him a 2008 gift in the range of $5 to $25 million.

    So if the stockpile can’t be used by the states, what is the stockpile for? They’re just stockpiling to say they have a stockpile?
    *Bratty kid voice* “It’s myyyyyyy stockpile!” He even looks like a child… And what is with the face he’s making? He looks like he just inhaled someone’s rotten egg fart.

    If dump is witholding supplies from the states that didn’t vote for him.. woah. That is effectively genocide…

    I wonder how many books the Clown Prince has read this time to be so knowledgeable about global pandemics.

    Another super scary thing is that, According to Vanity Fair, he was running a secret/shadow task force this whole time!!

    And many of the people he was calling and emailing and from the actual team didn’t know what he was doing or what his role was!! And from *cough* *cough* from unsecured email addresses (hypocrites).

    Also, he was the first one to ‘advise’ Donald Trump on Coronavirus and convinced him it was a PR issue, when did he become a scientist? A doctor? And a spy? Imagine being this stupid but being this confident about it!

    Not only that but his brother owns Oscar Health and might want to get involved in creating testing kits or something like that. And Karlie Kloss’s father had a private FaceBook group gathering information from other doctors and they were using that information somehow. They definitely seem to have something up their sleeves to prop themselves up and profit from the situation. It’s shameful. They are grifters! Crooks!

    this is the sort of behavior that needs to be documented by that house committee investigating the handling of coronavirus. they tried nazis for sending Jewish people to gas chambers. how about this administration;s refusal of National appropriate aid to states that arent blue , to governors who dont kiss his fat a##. they should be tried for war crimes and intentional homicide, all these m*therf*ckers. And the favoring of sycophants like Rob DeSantis is gross, makes me nauseous,

    I really hope this arrogant prick winds up just like his dad….in prison.
