      They covered everything necessary. The VP said he will conduct an update briefing every day for the time being.

          We still have a MASSIVE PROBLEM…. the CDC screwed up the testing kits…. the WHO published the protocol on JAN 9th…. the CDC still have not sent out or set up the correct protocols and it is March 3….
          NY State has only run 32 tests to date…
          CDC Bureaucracy screwed up again. (why governments fail.)

          As a Hoosier, I’ve observed him up close for quite sometime. He’s calm and understated and I think because of it, he’s often underestimated.

    What a great group! So positive and smart. Finally a group that really loves working with the public, President Trump and VP Pence. 🙂 This is so helpful for Americans’ health, and I am thankful. I’ve discussed with my son who is in college in Washington State in the Seattle area about his preparedness as he’s going about his daily life there. He’s been washing his hands non-stop!

    (I’m still not over how the intelligence community and state department peeps treated the President and his family. So disrespectful.)

    Just out of curiosity….Why don;t you think the President did not pick Ben Carson to run this?

      My guess is the President appreciates Pence’ loyalty in very tough circumstances and wants to elevate Pence’ profile.

      Because Pence is the VP and he has had some experience at dealing with these things from a top level. Pence is just one level below the Prez… can’t get higher.

      Besides, Dr. Carson has his own work. The VP is sort of the “swing man” in the administration, the only one with significant “time off”.

      For all we know, this might be his apprenticeship to Pence 2024. They guy seems pretty honest and pretty mid-western. Meaning honest enough and pragmatic.

      He’s got his hands full as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Full time job+++. Plus he was a brain surgeon. His practice wasn’t infectious disease.

      Ben Carson is no longer acting in the capacity of a MD. He’s Secretary of HUD. Medicine moves forward at a fast pace. MDs have to stay on the cutting edge.

        Pence has zero experience in medicine. Clearly experience in medicine is not the issue. This is an administrative position. Pence having ‘experience in dealing with these things’ had been contested when he was Governor.

        I am not opposed to Vice President Pence, not in the least. However, I think it was a good question and the replies seem unsatisfactory. I trust President Trump to do what is right. For all I know, the president had already discussed the position with Carson.

        So pick Pence? I really don’t understand what you are saying here..it sounds as if you are saying, if you had a choice on seeing a medical professional, you would those Pence over Carson?

          I am saying that there was a reason but it had nothing to do with experience in medicine, nor previous executive experience. And whatever the reason, I trust the president was diligent in his selection. I have no personal opinion on the selection.

          I jumped in merely because the above replies, other than mikeyboo pointed towards medical experience or experience in these sort of things. Yet neither of those could have weight in the decision. Mikeyboo alludes to an interesting point. If this assignment is also to elevate Pence, the question is, to what purpose? If it is for top executive, Pence better be able to come out swinging because all kinds of monkey poo will be thrown at him on the national stage. Does Pence seem to be that type, the type who will adopt a no-holds-barred positiion?

          Doesn’t need a medical professional. It requires medical administration and Pence has experience in that. So yes Pence over Carson.

      Several reasons. Dr. Carson is a Cabinet level Secretary running HUD. Putting him on the task force would require finding another HUD Secretary, which would be a distraction we don’t need at this time.
      Also, he is a pediatric brain surgeon (one of the best), not a virologist, nor an immunologist, nor an epidemiologist. He lacks the professional background, as a physician, to make the necessary contributions required for the task force. That’s not to say he wouldn’t be an effective administrator. He would be. @POTUS gave the job to @VPOTUS. I hope this answers your question.

      Ben Carson has been tackling the homelessness issue of California, which is *massive* and a potentially very difficult aspect of controlling contagion. Dr. Carson has been doing this very well

    I love how the one so-called reporter is demanding guidance regarding travel. Does she really want the government to tell her what to do? Is she so incapable of making her own decisions?

    Trump is a rockstar. He knows how to run a company and government. He hires or assembles the best of the best. Like the top notch lawyers he hired to defend him against impeachment, he has again hired and assembled the best of the best to fight this disease. Right before our eyes he proves why America is great through the people puts to work. All the people who work on our new trade deals, Pence and all the people he’s brought in to work on Corona, his kids who from day one with all the attacks have been professional and have his back, Kanye and prison reform, Trump can spot smart people who make America great. I love Trump, and it’s amazing he made us promises and kept them. He is, “The Man”. Thank you God for delivering us through Trump.
