Winding down Coronavirus Task Force is under discussion by Trump administration ^ | May 5, 2020 | BEN TRACY, KATHRYN WATSON, PAULA REID

Discussions are underway about winding down the work of the Coronavirus Task Force, Vice President Mike Pence acknowledged to reporters Tuesday, even as the number of deaths and new cases continue to mount, generally plateauing but not declining, as states begin to reopen. The administration's work on testing and bolstering the national stockpile will continue, Pence said, with some of that work being moved back to agencies.

Pence, who leads the task force and was answering questions about a New York Times report about the likely disbanding of the task force, said in the off-camera briefing that "conversations are being had about winding down the work for the task force," and the White House is looking at a possible Memorial Day "window."

"I think we're having conversations about that and about what the proper time is for the task force to complete its work and for the ongoing efforts to take place on an agency-by-agency level," the vice president told reporters. "And we've already begun to talk about a transition plan with FEMA. But it's — it really is all a reflection of the tremendous progress we've made as a country. The president stood up the White House Coronavirus Task Force to marshal — in January — to marshal a national response."

NY, NJ, and MA are 11.5% of the population and represent 55% of the infection / deaths. But, they are NOT the only East Coast States of the USA.
Florida, with 22 MILLION people is an East Coast State and the incidence of infections/deaths is far far lower than those three East Coast States. Lower than the states of California and Washington, West Coast States.
More BS being pushed as “science” by people who have a political agenda and want to see the shutdown continue for political reasons.

This show is done.. and it wasn’t very entertaining, well maybe some. But, with Judicial Watch going after Fauci you know where the wind has begun to blow.

Tucker and Ingraham have been devastating these last few days and with the “Shelter In Place” guy resigning in shame for not doing that.. and Doctors around the country declaring the whole thing a “BAD IDEA.” The administration has switched gears to supporting the fight against oppression in the US?

The NANNY State decided to become the KAREN State.. (From we’ll protect you.. to We’ll tell you what to do and arrest you if you don’t, and we don’t care if you die.) Just that quick, the mask is off.

So, the Task Force has become a fish rotting and Pence doesn’t care for the stink. Still they did some amazing things and they want to leave the stage while they can still bow.

Give them a parting gift and show them the door. Lock it as soon as Fauci and Scarfeface leave.

Don’t “under discussion” it. Just get Fauci and Birx the heck out of the White House NOW.

We defeated the virus about April 16 that’s when the entire town of the coronavirus task force conference changed

Ever since then it’s been open up America and that’s where the focus is now

Now we’re going to have the highly entertaining spectacle of Democrats trying to keep the citizens locked up in their homes , where they want to get out and enjoy the sunshine and a baseball mom and apple pie and they’re getting increasingly unpopular for doing so

And then once America’s all open back up and everybody’s enjoying the summer and that is cycle ends we’re gonna have indictments indictments indictments indictments indictments !!!!!of all the Russia hoax conspirators and every other crook and scoundrel who have wrongly attacked TRUMP AND HIs allies

There’s a diamonds in the trials of those jerks should carry us right into the fall election ! ( it’s SIX MONTHS AWAY ! )

How many moonbats does it take to write an article for See BS?

One, and two other to share in the mental delusions.

Just in from CNBC: President Donald Trump said Wednesday the coronavirus task force will keep working “indefinitely,” reversing his suggestion a day earlier that it would be phased out in coming weeks.o
