    'Trump official refuses to say a coronavirus vaccine would be affordable to all

    Alex Azar also appears to contradict president's contention that deadly virus will disappear once it gets warmer

    [...] Giving evidence to Congress on the administration's efforts to contain the deadly virus, Mr Azar said: "We would want to ensure that we work to make it affordable, but we can't control that price, because we need the private sector to invest. Price controls won't get us there."'

    'Trump puts Pence in charge of novel coronavirus response'

    ... prayer, exorcisms, and stoning gay people?...

    Or is it because it's the apocalypse?...

    https://www.pbs.org/...rUFKqBYed64lLy8

    'I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plaguesólast, because with them God's wrath is completed. 2 And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God 3 and sang the song of God's servant Pencius and of the King:

    Great and marvelous are your deeds,
    Lord Trump Almighty.
    Just and true are your ways,
    King of the world, and outer space;
    Who will not fear you, Lord,
    and bring glory to your Name?
    For you alone are holy.
    All nations will come
    and worship before you,
    for your righteous acts have been revealed.'"

    'Trump Names Pence, Who Fueled HIV Outbreak In His State, To Lead Coronavirus Response

    [...] Pence, whose career has included spreading misinformation about condom use and fueling the worst HIV outbreak in his state's history, to lead the government response to the coronavirus.

    [...] "Mike is going to be in charge, and Mike will report back to me," [Trump] added. "But he's got a certain talent for this."

    In 2015, when Pence was governor of Indiana, his cuts to public health funding and reluctance to sign off on needle exchanges contributed to a terrifying local HIV outbreak that resulted in nearly 200 people contracting the virus, reports the HuffPost.

    "Pence laid the groundwork for the outbreak as a congressman in 2011, when the House passed his amendment to defund Planned Parenthood. That led to the 2013 closure of the lone Planned Parenthood clinic in Scott County, Indiana, which was the area's only HIV testing center. By early 2015, local health officials were reporting a spike in HIV cases linked to intravenous prescription opioid use. At the height of the outbreak, 20 new cases of HIV were being diagnosed every week.

    Pence, who became governor in 2013, ignored pleas by local, state and federal health officials to lift the state's ban on needle exchanges. He said he was morally opposed to needle exchanges because he believed they supported drug abuse, which is not true.

    After more than two months had passed since the outbreak was detected ― and after opting for prayer instead of action ― Pence finally allowed for a temporary needle exchange program in Scott County. The HIV cases eventually slowed."

    In 2002, Pence criticized then-Secretary of State Colin Powell for advising young people to use condoms during sex. Pence argued that condoms don't prevent STDs and actually threaten people's lives.

    [...] In a 2000 op-ed, posted on his personal webpage and unearthed by BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski, Pence declared, "Smoking does not kill":

    Pence wrote: "Time for a quick reality check. Despite the hysteria from the political class and the media, smoking doesn't kill. In fact, 2 out of every three smokers does not die from a smoking related illness"'

    'Donald Trump's re-election campaign has filed a libel lawsuit against the New York Times, accusing America's newspaper of record of intentionally publishing a false story last year about Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

    In the lawsuit, which the campaign annouced was filed in New York State Supreme Court on Wednesday, the campaign alleges that the Times published a false story on 27 March 2019 claiming that Mr Trump and his campaign had engaged in a deal with the allies of Russian president Vladimir Putin to help his campaign in 2016 in exchange for a pro-Russia policy once Mr Trump became president.

    [...] "The Trump Campaign has turned to the courts to try to punish an opinion writer for having an opinion they find unacceptable[...] Fortunately, the law protects the right of Americans to express their judgments and conclusions, especially about events of public importance. We look forward to vindicating that right in this case."'

    'Why Donald Trump Has Never Won a Libel Case

    "Donald J. Trump is a libel bully. Like most bullies, he's also a loser, to borrow from Trump's vocabulary.”

    That's the opening of “Donald J. Trump Is A Libel Bully But Also A Libel Loser,” an analysis of seven different lawsuits he's filed, by Susan Seager, a media law specialist at the University of Southern California. (Media Law Resource Center)

    “Trump and his companies have been involved in a mind-boggling 4,000 lawsuits over the last 30 years and sent countless threatening cease-and-desist letters to journalists and critics.” Neither he nor his companies have won a speech-related case, something to be recalled as he threatens The New York Times and several women who have accused him of sexual assault.'
