States still baffled over how to get coronavirus supplies from Trump

Remember when we had a president who had plans and systems in place before he launched anything.  It may be me but "Tell  Jared to do it" is not my idea of a plan. 

 

Welcome to what the history books will call "the Trump Pandemic".  ITYS!

 

 

The federal government’s haphazard approach to distributing its limited supplies has left states trying everything — filling out lengthy FEMA applications, calling Trump, contacting Pence, sending messages to Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, and trade adviser Peter Navarro, who are both leading different efforts to find supplies, according to local and states officials in more than a half-dozen states. They’re even asking mutual friends to call Trump or sending him signals on TV and Twitter.The confusion is indicative more broadly of how Trump and his administration have responded to a number of crises. The president often bounces from one issue to the next, reacting to the headlines of the day. Record turnover rates and competing power centers have hampered long-term planning. The result has been rotating strategies that are hard to fully chronicle.
