Trump's Dereliction of Duty

US intelligence agencies alerted Israel to the coronavirus outbreak in China already in November, Israeli television reported Thursday.

According to Channel 12 news, the US intelligence community became aware of the emerging disease in Wuhan in the second week of that month and drew up a classified document.

Information on the disease outbreak was not in the public domain at that stage — and was known only apparently to the Chinese government.

US intelligence informed the Trump administration, “which did not deem it of interest,” but the report said the Americans also decided to update two allies with the classified document: NATO and Israel, specifically the IDF.
The Trumpanzees and the Covidiots (big overlap between the groups) are focusing on the six day period between the time that Chairman Xi knew of the pandemic and when he announced it. But they completely ignore the two months or so between when Trump was provably first briefed on the pandemic and when he stopped calling it a hoax and stopped saying that it was going to be no big deal and began taking it seriously.

Now, it's possible that Trump first knew four months before he began to take it seriously.

Heckuvajob, Trumpie.
