Edward Luce at the FT has a scathing article on Trump’s response to the pandemic – Quote #5 – ‘the best people’

17/05/2020

Edward Luce has a scathing article at the FT.

The article is a comprehensive look at the incompetence and stupidity of the Trump Administration, if you can dignify the corrosive, corrupt mess over which Trump presides as an Administration, response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

His lengthy and comprehensively researched piece, is a must read.

Luce explores the background of some key players.

Trump has in the past claimed he appoints the best people, well we already know that is not true, as his administration has been plagued by corrupt/incompetent officials.

Luce looks at the head of the CDC, one Robert Redfield who has a controversial past

Here is a quote

“Redfield is about the worst person you could think of to be heading the CDC at this time,” says Laurie Garrett, a Pulitzer Prize-winning science journalist who has reported on epidemics. “He lets his prejudices interfere with the science, which yo cannot afford during a pandemic.”
