NYC Mayor: We're Out of Supplies Because of Trump, Didn't Order Supplies
The Bill de Blasio administration is the gift that keeps on giving. Sadly there seems to be no way to actually return it to sender.
Mayor Bill de Blasio again pressed President Donald Trump for help bolstering the city’s dwindling medical supplies and escalated his call for the governor to create a state mandate that residents “shelter in place.”
De Blasio said the city now constitutes 30 percent of the reported coronavirus cases in the U.S. and called for the federal government to take immediate action to provide essential supplies like ventilators and surgical masks.
“The lights are on but nobody’s home at the executive branch,” de Blasio said on MSNBC, adding “a lot of people are going to die who don’t have to die" if the Trump administration doesn't move quickly in the coming days to increase medical supplies.
Meanwhile Bill de Blasio was supremely on the ball.
Mayor Bill de Blasio has blamed President Trump for the city’s severe shortage of COVID-19 supplies even though City Hall didn’t put in its first order for emergency protective gear until March 6, The Post has learned.
City officials waited for over two months after the coronavirus outbreak first hit China to start emergency procurements of masks and hand sanitizer, putting in orders on March 6 and March 10, according to the city comptroller’s office.
