Are the U.S. citizens who work and study in this house any less important than the U.S. citizens who work in this house?
President Trump is attempting to force in-person schools to re-opening without the needed funding and has made no plans to systematically test children, teachers, and school staffing to prevent a second even bigger wave of coronavirus infections. However, he is demanding that his staff be randomly tested over and over again.
Trump and his sycophants continue to ignorantly insist that children under ten years of age cannot transmit and spread COVID-19. He and the GOP lawmakers refuse to provide the needed billions of dollars required to test those returning to school routinely with tests that can provide instant and reliable results to schools across the country. White House employees will now be subject to mandatory testing for COVID-19, an official said on Monday, but American children will not get the same precautionary courtesy.
CNN’s Jim Acosta disclosed a statement made by an unnamed White House official today that reveals that staffers working near President Donald Trump are going to be forced to undergo randomized testing capable of providing instant and reliable COVID-19 results…
“As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the health and safety of the entire White House Complex, randomized testing of the Executive Office of the President staff, which has been ongoing for several months, will become mandatory rather than voluntary.”
White House employees reportedly received an email Monday morning with a stern warning.
“Failure to report to testing will be considered a refusal to test.”
Ann & Robert H. Lure Children’s Hospital in Chicago researches shows children have 100 times the viral infection in their nasal cavity than adults and older children. These findings contradict other findings that show children are infected at lower rates than elder children or adults and may be spreading the disease at a far higher rate.
So the question now becomes why instant and reliable COVID-19 results are so essential for White House staffers who have contact with President Trump and not needed for America’s schools?
