One group, PACRONYM, attacked President Donald Trump in a recent ad for firing members of the White House pandemic response team, however, multiple reports have debunked that argument.
The former Director for Counterproliferation and Biodefense at the National Security Council Tim Morrison said the biodefense team remained intact as the NSC reduced in size, he wrote in a recent op-ed for The Washington Post.
“The reduction of force in the NSC has continued since I departed the White House. But it has left the biodefense staff unaffected – perhaps a recognition of the importance of that mission to the president, who, after all, in 2018 issued a presidential memorandum to finally create real accountability in the federal government’s expansive biodefense system,” Morrison wrote.
