The Associated Press is calling out two leading Democratic presidential candidates for what the outlet says were inaccurate comments about the government’s ability to address diseases like the coronavirus.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg were “both wrong” to say critical health agencies faced funding cuts. While discussing the coronavirus during Tuesday’s debate, those candidates blamed President Trump for restricting resources for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH).
“There’s nobody here to figure out what the hell we should be doing. And he’s defunded — he’s defunded Centers for Disease Control, CDC, so we don’t have the organization we need. This is a very serious thing,” Bloomberg said.
