LOU DOBBS (HOST): President Trump today said he's closing the northern border with Canada to non-essential traffic. Canada and the United States taking this action simultaneously in order to at least slow the spread of the Wuhan virus, and we are told it won't affect trade in the least.
The Centers for Disease Control receiving $6.6 billion dollars from the federal government, with a mission stating, quote, "CDC works 24/7 to protect Americans from domestic and foreign threats to health, safety and security. CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same."
The CDC, you might be curious to know, also uses taxpayer dollars on political issues that go well beyond fighting disease and in some cases support leftist ideology. Among some of those efforts, the CDC has spent money splitting $25 million with the National Institutes of Health to study gun violence, hosted a safe sex event with a porn star, held a transgender beauty contest, and built a $106 million visitor center filled with waterfalls and Japanese gardens. Very relaxing.
President Trump and we want to say thank you to David Horowitz for providing that list.
