An AP-check published on facts on Wednesday accused Democrats of disturbing the president Donald Trump’s readiness for the corona virus.
In the article, entitled, “CHECKING AP FACTS: Democrats disrupt the readiness of the corona virus,” claiming that “Democratic presidential candidates” provide a “distorted image” of the threat.
“Democratic presidential candidates describe the federal infectious disease bureaucracy as helpless and ill-prepared for the coronavirus threat due to budget cuts and leadership by President Donald Trump,” wrote AP. “That is a distorted picture. To begin with, Trump failed to reduce the budget.”
AP has specifically chosen the former vice-president Joe Biden and billionaire From Mike Bloomberg comments, calling them “both wrong to say that the agencies have lowered their money.”
“The public health system has a playbook to follow for the preparation of the pandemic – regardless of who the president is or whether specific instructions come from the White House,” AP said, adding: “Those plans were set up pending another influenza pandemic, but are designed to work for any disease caused by the respiratory tract. “
The fact-finding check was shared on Twitter by Rep. Then Crenshaw (R-TX), Fox News’ Brit Hume, and a fast-responding director for President Trump’s re-election campaign in 2020.
Democrats lie about the President’s response to the corona virus. Bloomberg actually displays advertisements that say CDC funding has been cut – and it is clearly incorrect.
It is not necessary to make this important issue political, but they cannot do anything about it. https://t.co/LGBEGButJ2

Is there no problem that is serious enough that politicians do not make false claims about it for political advantage? https://t.co/4mBov3MkGE

No surprises here, but Democrats lie about the preparedness of the Trump government for the corona virus for political gain. https://t.co/665amaAPgC
