Everyone loves to attack and second guess Trump. But seriously, why didn't Obama buy ventilators the CDC repeatedly told him were needed?

    Obama was obviously incompetent.

    You can only blame Trump's failures on Obama for so long.

    Why did donnie cut CDC funding, and ignore their information from last year's report on a situation just like this?

    But yeah, everything bad is all Obama's fault for you morons. I'm sure that you're blaming him for the stock market, too.

    “Certainly the number of depleted masks were not replaced, and we should know why. It’s been a problem across multiple administrations,” Gross told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.

    The N95 masks have a shelf life of five years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, so continuous replacements are necessary.

    Source(s): Why didn’t Trump order many replacement masks? Anything ordered by Obama would be teaching the end of its shelf life of 5 years anyway.

    They did buy ventilators. But, COVID-19 attacks the respiratory system differently than most influenza strains creating more of a need. Presidents and Congress mostly react to the threats at hand.

    The Bush and Obama admins had functional pandemic offices , Trump dismantled it. Trump is now, finally, doing the right things , but it was a challenge to get him to focus on this.

    I'd rather want to know why Trump sent thousands of ventilators to China in February, as the virus was permeating through America.

    He should keep quiet and let the experts talk.
