VT’s own sources say they all had Navarro’s magnificent memo in January but got together with Trump to hide it, burn America to the ground, and blame it all on China while:
feeding insider trading dope to their financial buddies
selling visas to 40,000 possibly infected Chinese ‘investors’
assembling a ‘bail out’ package that lined their own pockets
those denying seeing the memo are lying, Navarro is now leading the Trump war on Fauci as well…the ultimate insider and Trump ‘team player’
Trump warned of hundreds of thousands of deaths and trillions in losses but chose to play blame game while sacrificing US interests and American people
Surgeon General Says Trump Kept Memo from Him…Flying Blind
NY Times: A memo from Peter Navarro is the most direct warning known to have circulated at a key moment among top administration officials.
A top White House adviser starkly warned Trump administration officials in late January that the coronavirus crisis could cost the United States trillions of dollars and put millions of Americans at risk of illness or death.
The warning, written in a memo by Peter Navarro, President Trump’s trade adviser, is the highest-level alert known to have circulated inside the West Wing as the administration was taking its first substantive steps to confront a crisis that had already consumed China’s leaders and would go on to upend life in Europe and the United States.
“The lack of immune protection or an existing cure or vaccine would leave Americans defenseless in the case of a full-blown coronavirus outbreak on U.S. soil,” Mr. Navarro’s memo said. “This lack of protection elevates the risk of the coronavirus evolving into a full-blown pandemic, imperiling the lives of millions of Americans.”
Donald Trump was warned at the end of January by one of his top White House advisers that coronavirus had the potential to kill hundreds of thousands of Americans and derail the US economy, unless tough action were taken immediately, new memos have revealed.
The memos, first reported by the New York Times and Axios, were written by Navarro on 29 January and 23 February. The first memo, composed on the day Trump set up a White House coronavirus task force, gave a worst-case scenario of the virus killing more than half a million Americans.
According to the Times, it said: “The lack of immune protection or an existing cure or vaccine would leave Americans defenseless in the case of a full-blown coronavirus outbreak on US soil. This lack of protection elevates the risk of the coronavirus evolving into a full-blown pandemic, imperiling the lives of millions of Americans.”
The second memo went even further, predicting that a Covid-19 pandemic, left unchecked, could kill 1.2m Americans and infect as many as 100m.
This was not the first time Trump and his White House team were warned that the virus had the potential to devastate the US and needed to be dealt with quickly and firmly. Senior scientists, epidemiologists, and health emergency experts in the US and around the world delivered that message clearly early on in the crisis, only for Trump to continue belittling the scale of the threat which he compared falsely to the dangers of seasonal flu.
But the emergence of the memos from such a senior aide within the White House will make it much more difficult for Trump to claim – as he has done on multiple occasions – that nobody was able to predict the severity of the disease. As the pandemic has swept across the country, the president has come under mounting criticism for having done too little, too late in response, leading to mass shortages of diagnostic testing, protective gear for frontline health workers and ventilators for the very sick.
Surgeon general says he ‘never saw’ January memo warning of pandemic
Adams defended the White House’s response to the pandemic, saying, “We’ve been saying for decades that this is a possibility. … Many people at all levels just did not expect something like this to happen at this magnitude.”
He’s 100% insane, and nobody in the administration has the balls to tell him that. https://t.co/SlS06oYaoq

When NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie pressed him on that last point, saying the memo proved some White House advisers were aware of how bad this situation could get, Adams said, “There were preparations going on the entire time.”
Trump has been repeatedly criticized for incorrectly predicting coronavirus would miraculously “disappear” without affecting many Americans, and reports of Navarro’s memo have intensified accusations that the president mishandled the government’s early response.
