I'm a little embarrassed but thanks!

NY governor says China is donating 1,000 ventilators to the state

 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said today that New York will receive 1,140 ventilators from China and Oregon.

 

The Chinese government has facilitated a donation of 1,000 ventilators that are expected to arrive at JFK Airport today, Cuomo said moments ago during a press conference.

 

"This is a big deal and it's going to make a significant difference for us. Also, the state of Oregon contacted us and is going to send 140 ventilators," Cuomo added. "Which is I can tell you just astonishing and unexpected. And I want to thank Gov. Brown, I want to thank all of the people in the state of Oregon for their thoughtfulness."

Just a little correction - aithough these ventilators (and many other badly needed supplies) are coming from China they are being donated by the owner of the New York Nets, Joe Tsai and his wife, along with Jack Ma who he cofounded Alibaba with. This is the second major donation of needed supplies from these people.

 

It should also be noted that Oregon is providing 140 ventilators to New York. An example of how governments can work together.

I cannot find any reference Joe Tsai did this at the request of IMPOTUS.  Cuomo, maybe, but IMPOTUS says NY has enough ventilators.

Could be as Trump is well known for shirking responsibility and demanding that other people do what was expected of Trump himself!

I wonder how many of those ventilators were in the 18 ton U.S. stockpile of PPE and ventilators that Trump sent to China as our country was about to have an outbreak of the Corona Virus!

The U.S. is losing its reputation as a global leader during times of international crisis.

 

BEIRUT — As America's rivals make gestures of support for other nations stricken by the coronavirus, the United States is losing its traditional leadership role abroad at the same moment that it's struggling to contain the virus at home, analysts say.

At a time of crisis when the world would typically look to the richest and most powerful nation, the United States has instead retreated into its own form of self-isolation, with its president downplaying the severity of the threat and top American officials squabbling among themselves.

Instead, the United States’ rivals, notably China and to a lesser extent Russia, have been stepping up to offer aid to other stricken nations, a role long fulfilled by the United States in crises stretching back to World War II.

Read entire article: The U.S. traditionally leads in times of crisis. Now it’s practicing self-isolation.

 

The "greatest country in the world" is being eclipsed and hamstrung by ineptitude and dysfunction from its head guy and his fawning flunkies. 

 

America first.  Yup.  Such ineptitude and dysfunction from the WH and now America needs help. She can't even help her own states.

 

Embarrassed?  Yes.  Disgusted?  Even more so.

That is great news.

Payback time for China starting the virus and not informing the US and them lying to us?

Everything past the first line is not true by fact. Read my post on that.

That's nice.

 

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/03/nyc-doesnt-have-enough-ventilators-for-next-week-mayor-de-blasio-say... 

 

 

New York City is about to get a surge of coronavirus cases in the coming days and still doesn’t have enough ventilators or health-care workers to make it through next week, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday.

 

 

He’s authorized police and the fire department and the sheriff’s office to help city health officials obtain ventilators from private doctor’s offices and companies, he said. The city also needs 45,000 additional medical personnel and 65,000 extra hospital beds, including 20,000 ICU beds, he said. Local hospitals are rationing their protective equipment to stretch it out through next week, he said.

 

 

“We have gotten some ventilators in, but right now, we’re struggling to have enough for next week,” he said, adding that the city needs 15,000 additional ventilators to get through April and May. There are currently more than 57,100 cases in New York City and at least 266,000 in the U.S., according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. “About a quarter of all the cases in this entire country are right here in New York City. And we’re the tip of the spear, and everyone I talk to in Washington acknowledges it. We’re about to hit a huge surge in these coming days. They all know it.”

Am I the only one? No one else is embarrassed that the United States of America is accepting handouts from China? Hey, we'll take them and say thanks, no one wants people to die. But it's truly sad how low we've fallen under Trump.

Nope, I agree, it's totally embarrassing and all of Us should be embarrassed that We are not supporting Our States, Cities, and Citizens. But, this is not inconsistent with trump's behavior...as long as trump and friends get their cut, and he tries to make himself look good, the heck with all others. 
But reality says that trump is too embarrassing to be embarrassed!

And his message is that he will not give help to others, but we should give help to his government and his incompetence. Just another perversion of society, courtesy of donald trump.
