Pres. Trump Declares National Emergency; Blames Former Pres. Obama Over Complicating ‘Things Further’

President Donald Trump on criticized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today (3/13) for being inadequately prepared to face the ongoing pandemic over COVID-19 and it’s inability to test for the coronavirus. This comes as the President declared a national emergency, stating form the Rose Garden,

“I am officially declaring a national emergency.” The President states the declaration of an emergency will open up $50 billion for state and local governments to respond to the outbreak.

“For decades the @CDCgov looked at, and studied, its testing system, but did nothing about it. It would always be inadequate and slow for a large scale pandemic, but a pandemic would never happen, they hoped. President Obama made changes that only complicated things further….”

This comes after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sarcastically tweeted the following yesterday while tagging the President.

Yesterday (3/12) former President Barack Obama also took to Twitter to suggest that cancel large-scale events such as sporting events, concerts, etc is worthwhile because over the course of the big picture less stress will be placed on the national health care system while experts continue to work on finding a solution in the meantime.
