If there was any doubt Trump cares about anyone but himself, here is yet one more plan inherited from Obama he killed that was designed to protect medical workers. Since there are still some here that think Trump is doing a good job this will blow right by them.
When President Trump took office in 2017, his team stopped work on new federal regulations that would have forced the health care industry to prepare for an airborne infectious disease pandemic such as COVID-19. That decision is documented in federal records reviewed by NPR.
"If that rule had gone into effect, then every hospital, every nursing home would essentially have to have a plan," said David Michaels, former Occupational Safety and Health Administration chief.
