Trump’s going to Allentown for another photo-op rather than actually doing his job.
More Trump nonsense as Trump does a stunt like in Arizona — perhaps he’ll wear only safety glasses again and have “Live and Let Die” blare in the background. FSM-forbid that he actually use the DPA. He will “deliver remarks” meaning that this will have some rally-speak.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — President Donald Trump is set to announce a new initiative Thursday in Lehigh County called the National Strategic Stockpile 2.0. The major revamp of the National Strategic Stockpile would implement new technology, increase supplies and ask private companies to store supplies in an effort to become less reliant on China.
Trump’s visit is to a warehouse of Virginia-based Owens and Minor in suburban Allentown. The White House said he will also deliver remarks.
It is Trump’s second visit to Pennsylvania this year after appearing a town hall-style event hosted by Fox News at the Scranton Cultural Center in March.
Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes are perhaps this year’s premier electoral prize state after Trump’s unexpected win in Pennsylvania in 2016 helped pave his way to the White House.

17. On the great #ObamaGate #Flynn unmasking, NB it appears from the first page of the declassified list that the people who requested to know Flynn's identity didn't know who the NSA had intercepted. Likely only something like "USPerson#3." That's how #FISA works. @JoeBiden pic.twitter.com/E5Hgh3HfFd— Tim Hogan (@TimInHonolulu) May 13, 2020

Trump’s FDA says it’s okay for the trucks in which the bodies of people who died from #COVID19 were kept to be used to store and transport food.— Leah McElrath 🏳️🌈 (@leahmcelrath) May 13, 2020
Even if bodily fluids leaked.
It offers “recommendations” about cleaning.
Not regulations. Recommendations.https://t.co/Ehom63ZR9y
