(TNS) Former National Security Advisor John Bolton may not have agreed with all of President Trump’s foreign policy and military decisions, but he’s not going to let Democrats and their sycophant media allies lay claim to a false equivalency involving the Wuhan coronavirus.
Namely, that we are now dealing with a ‘pandemic’ because Trump ‘closed the global pandemic office’ in the White House.

As reported by The Hill, Bolton pushed back against this ridiculous claim in a Saturday tweet.
â€œClaims that streamlining NSC structures impaired our nation’s bio defense are false. Global health remained a top NSC priority, and its expert team was critical to effectively handling the 2018-19 Africa Ebola crisis. The angry Left just can’t stop attacking, even in a crisis,â€ Bolton (above, center) wrote.

The remark from Bolton comes a day after Trump was pressed on his decision to disband the pandemic response team on the NSC in 2018. While responsibility for monitoring threats from infectious diseases was shifted to another group within the NSC, the move was reportedly interpreted as a downgrading of the administrationâ€™s priority for global health security. — The Hill
â€œWell, I justÂ think itâ€™s a nasty question,â€ Trump fired back when asked about the closure. â€œI donâ€™t know anything about it. I mean, you say we did that. I donâ€™t know anything about it. Disbanding, no, I donâ€™t know anything about it.â€
While it may or may not be true that the president was aware of the NSC’s closure of the office, it was, indeed, a “nasty question” nevertheless.
That’s because it’s based on the nonsensical premise that the U.S. wasÂ unprepared to handle pandemicsÂ before the god king Obama founded a ‘pandemic office.’
Indeed, it seems more like the office was created to give an Obama donor or backer of his regime a job than out of necessity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the NSC, the Pentagon, and a half-dozen other U.S. intelligence agencies continually monitor and plan for events like pandemics because they can turn into national security issues.
Claims by Democrats and their media propagandists that the lack of a “pandemic office” somehow made it easier for coronavirus to land on U.S. shores is mind-numbingly stupid.

But it’s precisely this kind of media-hyped garbage that Bolton and Surgeon General Jerome Adams are pushing back against in their effort to force these jackals to provide Americans with facts and answers regarding the outbreak instead of innuendo and baseless accusations.
We’re not holding our breath, though, and readers shouldn’t either.
