Following reports that protests are being planned in all 50 states for the dates around President-elect Joe Biden‘s inauguration—and with the House set to vote Wednesday on impeachment—President Donald Trump released a statement urging lawfulness and peace at the expected protests.

On Monday, reports emerged of an internal FBI memo stating that armed protests are being organized in the capital cities of every U.S. state ahead of Inauguration Day, January 20.

“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” the president said in a statement his son Eric Trump shared to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. President Trump has been banned from Twitter and essentially every other major social media site since the end of last week following the deadly Capitol riot one week ago that has left the nation and the world shocked and appalled.

“That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for,” Trump added. “I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers.”

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
