Former Obama White House Ebola response coordinator Ron Klain blasted Donald Trump’s announced travel ban on Europe in response to the Chinese coronavirus as a political move during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday night.
“Part of this is the classic Trump distraction tactic and he wants to see progressives debate the travel ban, so on and so forth, and not come after where he has failed.”
The President announced a 30-day ban on travel from Europe to the United States as a result of the widespread reach of the virus on the continent. The United Kingdom is exempt from the temporary travel ban.
Klain slammed Trump for the lack of testing for the virus in the United States when compared to countries such as South Korea, where 2,000 out of every one million people have been tested for the virus.
He may have missed that a major element of Trump’s national address on the situation addressed new means to produce more testing kits for the virus. South Korea’s experience with the virus(it’s arguably the second hardest hit country) has come as a result of its proximity to China.
Klain’s remarks come as a stark contrast to Trump’s national address, in which he emphasized the need for Americans to unite across political lines and take every step possible to fight the virus without partisan considerations.
If there are some who seek to immediately cast the moves taken to halt the coronavirus’ spread as a political gambit, then they are the ones treating a serious national health threat to older Americans as a partisan game.
Pelosi May Try to Impeach President Trump AGAIN For Nominating a SCOTUS Judge Before Election
Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.
Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.
Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.
President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.
If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.
Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
