President Trump was accused of gutting the NSC pandemic group which would have helped combat this pandemic.
The office was disbanded by Bolton and folded into the WMD directorate. Dr. Fauci on Wednesday said “it would be nice if that office were still there.” Of roughly 115 policy specialists at NSC, there are currently just 2 people who specialize in pandemics. https://t.co/FvSVHz4lTS https://t.co/YFw6MN4rV2

However, an OP-ED from The Washington Examiner debunked the propaganda put out by the left:
In contrast, what the Trump administration’s various national security advisers have been doing is quite simple: trying to make this process run more smoothly. While it’s true that John Bolton sought to centralize more power at the White House, he didn’t share the Obama-era penchant for bloating the NSC.
But there is no evidence that any of these reform efforts damaged U.S. bio-defense. Facing congressional prodding, the Trump administration released a comprehensive biodefense strategy in 2018. It also advanced the Obama administration’s admittedly fine efforts to counter the Ebola outbreak in Africa.
That brings us back to the central point.
To say that the Trump administration’s reforms damaged our biodefenses requires the assumption that bureaucratic reforms are thus in and of themselves bad. And that’s not true. The opposite, as any successful private company will tell you, is often the case. Indeed, while I don’t have the evidence to show it, the Trump administration’s NSC reforms might actually have made our nation’s biodefenses stronger.
It is truly amazing how low the Mainstream Press will stoop to attack President Trump. They put out a lie and the Democrats run with it on social media weaponizing it against the President.
By the time they are debunked many Americans already have seen the lie.
