On Nov. 6, 2016, the president was expected to deliver a speech to a joint session of Congress on his administration’s efforts to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
But on Nov. 10, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would have effectively gutted the effort, which had been in the works since the spring.
The House had passed the bill in May and was poised to take up the measure again after the November election.
It was a blow to the president’s efforts and one of his chief election promises.
On the campaign trail, Trump frequently pledged to “bomb the hell” out of the coronas outbreak, but the president also repeatedly praised the work of his administration, which he credited with bringing down the number of new coronaviruses by 90% in the U.K. and nearly 90% globally.
The bill, known as the Trump coronavirent bill, would have slashed the budget of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) by about $2 billion and closed the remaining offices of the agency.
It would have left the CDC with a $4.7 billion budget shortfall.
By ending the Centers’ coronaviral response, the bill would have sent the message that the U,S.
was not prepared to tackle the virus without federal help, according to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis.
It is also a setback for the president, who has campaigned on ending the epidemic.
In the days after the bill passed, the White House released a series of tweets highlighting the president and his administration efforts to control the virus.
“Just like the people of the United States of America, the virus is not just a health problem,” the president wrote.
“It is a crime, and our government must act swiftly to stem the spread of this deadly disease.”
The tweet came after the CDC announced it was closing its remaining offices in the country.
A week later, Trump met with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Vice President Mike Pence, R, to discuss the bill.
The president reiterated his administration was ready to step in.
“We are going to do what we can, but we are not going to have the resources,” he said at a press conference on Dec. 1.
The next day, the CBO estimated the bill’s cost to the U: $1.2 billion, or nearly 60% of the $4 billion budget cut the president had promised.
But in the weeks that followed, the administration acknowledged it would have to take a hit in funding.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency that runs the CDC, estimated in January that its $1 billion funding shortfall would have been $1,700 per person in the United Kingdom, $1 on average per person there, and $2.50 per person overall.
In a statement released on Feb. 7, the CDC said it had “limited capacity” to handle the virus in the short term.
The agency also acknowledged that it would be unable to address the epidemic as planned without federal funding.
“In order to protect the American people, we are limited in the number and types of resources that can be provided,” the statement said.
“Our plan will not have the capacity to address this outbreak quickly, and will require a significant amount of additional federal funding over the next several years.”
The White House later admitted that it was taking the president at his word that the government would not be able to respond quickly enough.
“I think the president made that promise to the American public,” Kellyanne Conway, then the press secretary for the Trump campaign, told Fox News.
“And that’s why he was so confident that he could do this.”
While the Trump administration has repeatedly said the White Houses top priority is keeping Americans safe from the coronava outbreak, there is little doubt that its budget is being squeezed by a variety of other priorities, including the war on drugs, a stalled opioid crisis, the government shutdown, and other budgetary issues.
In January, Vice President Pence told CNN that the White the budget will be $1 trillion higher than the $1-trillion estimate in March.
“As the president said in his inauguration speech, ‘There will be no more government in America.’
We will be smaller, we will be stronger, and we will fight harder for our families and our communities,” Pence said at the time.
In July, the Trump White House said that the president would be willing to take $1 to $1 million from the budget if Congress agreed to allow him to spend up to $10 billion more on federal anti-covid research.
“The president will be willing, and the president is prepared, to use that money for research to understand how to control this epidemic,” Conway said on Fox News in August.
“There’s no question that he’s prepared to use some of the money.”
The president also promised to cut $400 billion from Medicaid and other public health programs, but he has
