The Trump campaign is running an ad showing Biden meeting with Chinese officials in a weak attempt to smear him. One of the men they show Biden meeting with is Gary Locke, an American who was the governor of Washington and Secretary of Commerce. The Trump campaign responded to inquiries by saying the clip was included because Hunter Biden was on the trip.
This NBC article details the huge boosts private companies are getting from the Trump administration’s policies on distributing protective medical gear. The federal government has emergency authority to dictate where supplies go and at what costs. They are not using this power. Instead the government is funneling supplies back into commercial sellers who are selling to the highest bidder. The states are competing against each other and against the federal government for overpriced gear. This is in line with Trump’s view that the federal government doesn’t really have a role in the pandemic and everything should be left up to the governors. This policy is a disaster.
