Government/Trump Tries to Control Science Agencies’ Policies
The government's independent watchdog will investigate whether Trump administration officials improperly interfered with the coronavirus response at the CDC and FDAhttps://t.co/HKV10JqTFE— POLITICO (@politico) October 19, 2020
Health Editor’s Note: Members of the Senate’s health committee formally requested the GAO investigation into reports that the White House sought to interfere with the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports and placing pressure on the CDC to loosen guidelines for re-opening schools and Azar’s overruling the FDA on coronavirus testing rules.
Very unfortunately this probe will not begin for 3 months. I wonder what Trump had to promise to get that delay?
Trump trying to manipulate science and medicine to save his political face during the weeks leading up to the presidential election. Hey Trump, sometimes you come across people who have ethics.
Only Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has defended Trump’s actions. But what would you expect from a Trump lap dog?…..Carol
