Opinion: Kushner and Trump proving the US is a GIANT Banana Republic!
Jared Kushner, the Son-in-Law and White House Advisor and President Donald J. Trump is proving again that the United States of America is run like a hack-job or a Banana Republic. The US Federal Government isn’t supplying the Health Care Units in the States, they are letting the States outbid itself for scraping the needed equipment and ventilators. As the National Stockpile isn’t at capacity nor cared for over the years in the Trump Administration. Just like the revelation of the dismantling the Pandemic Team within the White House. They have made a Task-Force for it, but that was a month ago. Just like the order of General Motors was barely two weeks ago. There is no real action made by the Federal Government to help the States and Local Government.
Kushner and Trump is now throwing shade at the local government. They are complaining and saying the states didn’t do enough. While he didn’t follow international intelligence in January nor February. He even tried early in March to downplay the crisis. Therefore, for him to blame others is very rich from the impoverished mind of Trump.
That Kushner now tells Governors and Mayors, that they don’t know what happens in their states and towns. Kushner claims that he has oversight of the National Stockpile and the data. But seemingly he seems like the merchant of death. That the man whose there to defend the father-in-law.
The White House, Trump Administration and the whole regime has failed the public. As they want it to be Hunger Games for the equipment. Not taking responsibility and really shifting blame to the local governments. Instead of seeing what it knew and what was at stake. The White House and President wanted to save Wall Street, but not act upon the coming needs. Like the Governors or Mayors would get intelligence briefings. No, they don’t and the Federal Government isn’t fixing the fixed prices and schemes to secure needed equipment. That is what its doing.
Kushner and Trump has not done their job. They are not taking responsibility nor acting as leaders. More as reactionary scarecrows. The Task-Force and Vice-President is all acting as puppets. They are not acting like they are governing, but as leaders who deserves credit, but hasn’t done anything fruitful.
This is happening while people is dying. As the people are getting sick and the COVID-19 crisis is hitting the United States even more. The Trump Administration hasn’t acted, they haven’t ordered. It been so easy in the past to order Executive Orders for White Supremacist legislation, but now to save lives. It cannot even touch the print or paperwork. They only used the law once to stop it and order one Company very late to the game. When the Federal Government could have ensured the companies was directly ordered to procure and produce needed equipment. Alas, that has not been done and not properly. Neither has there been sufficient control of “stay at home orders” in the various of states. White House and the President should have acted, but he doesn’t have the character to do so. Only get self-praise and shift blame.
Kushner can act like a king-pin over the Stockpile. The President can call himself a Back-Up. However, then he shouldn’t be the Executive, be the man whose head-of-state and Commander-in-Chief. Because, that isn’t the act of a President in crisis. That is the act of self-centred and lack of authority in the dire need. The man who had no trouble getting more people out of health-insurance and dismantling the Obamacare. The man who will not secure the people who now cannot enter hospitals, because they don’t have insurance. Since hospitals doesn’t take free-loaders who cannot pay for the services, as they are out-of-job.
That is why the US is a Banana Republic. Run by incompetent, nepotism and cronyism. Wall Street bulls who bull-market the Health Care Industry and the Pharmaceuticals. That is what they are doing and done. The cost now is lives of the citizens, who are pawns by the so-called Kings of the Washington DC.
These people doesn’t act for the citizens, but only for their self interest. The ones paying for that is the ordinary tax-payer. They are the ones living in a state of taxation without proper representation. The President and Son-in-Law, the Vice-President are all acting ill, while the state is getting sick. They have not acted and still doesn’t, only sending blame further down the food-chain. There will be no resolve, no resolution of this, only more pain. More suffering and more lack of leadership from the top.
Who needs leadership and clear mandates? When you can have a PR front-man and snake-oil salesman who sounds like a prosperity gospel preacher. Instead of giving the people the orders they need so they can survive. They are a buncu of useless men with titles, who cannot lead or delegate, but only operate as figment of imagination in-front of the TV. Peace.
