Illinois Governor Hides Purchase of Medical Supplies to Prevent Theft by the Trump Administration


Several states have reported thefts by FEMA of critical medical supplies from their hospitals and other medical facilities. Not only has Trump’s corrupt administration failed to save American lives, they are now preventing medical personnel from performing their jobs.

The Governor of Illinois, J.B. Pritzker, was forced to hide purchases from Trump’s circle of sinners to treat the citizens of his state.

Last week, The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker was planning to ship “millions of masks and gloves from China” back to his state via charter jets, but was keeping the details of those flights secret “out of fear the Trump administration might seize the cargo for the federal stockpile.” Now, reports Forbes, the White House is responding in the usual Trump White House way: sending a sniveling underling out to complain about it.

The Daily Kos reported a response from a member of the White House press secretary’s office denying the truth, and proving that there are members of this office of the Trump Administration remaining.

White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere broke with usual Trump spokesman tradition to actually put his own name to his quote, sniffing to RealClearPolitics that Pritzker “through ignorance or incompetence or a propensity to politicize” was simply wrong when Pritzker told CNN his state had gotten “very little help” and that he’d “given up on any promises that had been made” by Trump.

The truth is that not a single effort has been made to stem the spread of the coronavirus by Trump and his failed administration. Their concern is the economy, not the health and welfare of the people they are sworn to serve.

Pritzker is one of many of America’s governors who have lost all faith in Trump’s abilities to be our nation’s president. What took them so long?
