Trump ‘Furious’ At Rogue Bureaucrats Who Let Coronavirus Patients Fly Home Without Telling Him

President Trump was reportedly livid after 14 Diamond Princess passengers infected with coronavirus were flown back to the United States without notifying him and against his wishes, according to the Washington Post.

Trump and his coronavirus task force were told last Saturday that Americans quarantined for weeks aboard the luxury cruise ship would be brought home on two chartered planes, but that infected patients or those with symptoms would remain in Japan. That decision was overruled without Trump’s knowledge, according to the report.

Trump was briefed on the decision and agreed that healthy passengers should not be on the plane with sick ones, three senior administration officials said. But the State Department and a top U.S. health official ultimately decided to bring back the 14 Americans who tested positive for the virus on the planes and place them in isolation — without informing the president first.

Trump learned of the decision after the fact and was reportedly angry that he wasn’t consulted first – as the decision “could damage his administration’s handling of the response,” according to the report.

“Some members of the task force were not told in advance that the infected people would be placed on the plane and learned that only after the plane was on its way back to the United States.”

State department defends

“It’s important to remember this was an emerging and unusual circumstance,” said Principal Deputy Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Consular Affairs, Ian Brownlee.

A plane carrying American passengers, who were recently released from the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan, arrives at Travis Air Force Base in California on February 16

“We had 328 people on buses, a plan to execute and we received lab results on people who were otherwise asymptomatic, un-ill people on a bus on the way to the airport,” he added. “The people on the ground did exactly the right thing…in bringing them home.”

Except, Ian, we’ve known for more than a week that coronavirus tests aren’t sufficiently reliable – often showing false-negatives, while so-called asymptotic ‘super-spreaders’ are walking around infecting people.

Eleven of the evacuated Diamond Princess passengers deemed ‘high risk’ have been confirmed to have coronavirus. They, along with a twelfth passenger, are being held at the National Quarantine Center in Omaha, Nebraska, while another passenger was sent to the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit because they had developed symptoms of the virus and had an underlying condition, according to the Daily Mail.

  1. Sounds like it’s time to remove all of these individuals from the positions they currently holds as it’s quite obvious they have no care or concern for the Safety and Well-Being of those infected, the others who didn’t show signs of being infected or the Catastrophic Potential for this Virus to be further introduced into the General Public of the United States.

    1. I completely agree with your comments! This was nothing but complete, and total responsibility! Somebody needs to lose their job over such an irresponsible decision!

        1. You are exactly right! ALL – WOULD BE AT RISK, INFECTED -through the vents, circulating the air, for it did create avenues for the virus. I say-ALL who were involved in PRODUCING HIGH RISK SITUATIONS- NOT INFORMING PRESIDENT TRUMP- should be put in lock-up. For any to go ahead and make STUPID LIFE THREATENING MOVES- THAT ARE AS BIO-HAZARD EXPOSURE- THESE PEOPLE PUT AT SUCH A HIGH RISK! . I OBJECT to letting them get away with having done this to ALL OF US! President Trump must act and bring ALL who had a part in this- to let them, see how it feels. IF THEY could have cared less about us, WHY should we not see them in the same boat that they have put us in! ALL BORDERS NEED TO BE CLOSED! COMPLETELY!

  2. Brownlee needs to get his sorry ass fired. Motherfucker will get his ass kicked, though. We’re coming for you, Ian baby.

    1. I agree with you.HE MUST BE FIRED.Put him in a cage- within public reach and we will bring our own stones to stone him to death.AFTER ALL- HE BROUGHT DEATH IN UPON US! President Trump would never have allowed this! WE ALL MUST DEMAND- IDIOTS BE FIRED-AND PUT OUT OF OFFICE, CLOSE ALL OF THE BORDERS! Flights/Boats, WHATEVER- LIFE HAD BETTER BE CONSIDERED- PRIORITY-TO KEEP US AMERICANS-SAFE! SOMEONE NEEDS TO ASK- at the DEBATE tomorrow -WHAT they think about the safety of AMERICANS!We need to know- IF STUPIDITY RULES THEIR HEADS!

  3. This is not a firing offence this is a major criminal offence all the people that get infected and die from these people is on the head of the ones that decided that they can do whatever they want with no personal ramifications.

    1. WE AMERICANS MUST MAKE DEMANDS! AFTER ALL- THEY ALL WORK FOR US-WE- PAY THEIR PAYCHECKS! I do not give a RIP! -DEMO-OR REPUB!- OUT THEY GO- IF STUPIDITY RULES THEIR HEAD! ARE DEMOS STILL INSISTING THE BORDERS -OPEN! ?? WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE- RULE! THIS IS A LIFE THREATENING ,CATASTROPHIC AGGRESSIVE VIRUS! PUT ALL OUT FROM OFFICE- WHO ARE A THREAT TO OUR SAFETY! WE MUST DEMAND IT!

  4. Definitely fire these irresponsible liberal officials. Send them the medical bills for all those who became needlessly infected due to their deliberate actions of not following instructions.

  5. Everyone involved needs to lose their job. This was done by the democrats to try and make him incompetent. Just goes to show you the extreme they will go to. They’re hoping the Americans blame him and not vote. Shame they don’t care for the Americans who are paying their paychecks. Time for everyone involved to be fired and held accountable. “YOUR FIRED”

  6. I am about to make a list of names of the government employees that allowed these people in my country and if by chance I contract this disease, I have every intention of killing everybody on this list as a final act of defiance to this governmental crime that was not prosecuted.

  7. ANYONE that contracts this disease should take a little trip to the STATE DEPARTMENT and intentionally spread it to everyone in the building !!

  8. The names of those responsible should be published and the people and their families who contract the virus be allowed to sue them personally.

  9. This was a criminally negligent act of defiance by a Deep Stater attempting to corrupt the Administration’s response to the Coronavirus Threat. These people should be fired with the knowledge they are subject to prosecution for reckless endangerment after a careful investigation. This situation here is why Mr. Trump must continue weeding out the deep staters and removing them from government service. They are a threat to us all.

    1. HOW MUCH TIME do we have.We do not know every way that this virus can get to us! Can it be by touching -where someone who has the virus!? It is AIRBORNE??! Does it have spores? HOW does it contaminate? How safe are we- with food coming from – outside of the country that has not even posted INFECTED due from FRIGHT that it will collapse -FOOD TRade- AND OTHER ITEMS OF TRADE! THIS IS A MESS! President Trump WAS DOING ALL OUT! TO PROTECT US- AND PEOPLE WENT AGAINST HIM- AND BROUGHT THE VIRUS IN UPON US! POINT BLANK! THIS WAS A DELIBERATE ACT OF ‘ON PURPOSE’! NO ONE IS THIS DUMB HEADED! THEY could become infected themselves- UNLESS- they are harboring A CURE VACCINE????? FOR THEMSELVES! Could this be a point to have taken – to take out millions of PEOPLE to curb the number of people- and start all over again? SOMEONE HAD A PLAN!??? President Trump has been FIGHTING FOR AMERICA AND AMERICANS- TRYING TO CLOSE OUR BORDERS- AND HE HAD- BUT THE PEOPLE SAID-SCREW YOU- AND WENT AGAINST HIM- AT OUR EXPENSE! DEATH TO US!!! AND THOSE WHO DID THIS- COULD CARE LESS! WHO! ARE! THEY! -ALL!??? WE THE PEOPLE- FIND THEM GUILTY! NO TRIAL NECESSARY!

  10. It’s time to have anyone that changes President Trump’s decisions, without the consent of President Trump be immediately arrested and charged with treason. Why is it that these subordinates think they have the power to supersede the Presidents orders? No one of this crap!!!

  11. PLEASE DO! The Democratic Debate is in Charleston SC -TONIGHT! THIS needs to be announced! THIS IS MAJOR NEWS! AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW- > WHO ALL < WAS INVOLVED IN THIS! IT IS A PLAGUE! IT HAS BEEN LET UPON US – ON PURPOSE! WE ALL KNEW this is a NON STOP KILLER VIRUS! PUT THE LIST NAMES ON FACEBOOK- TWITTER- SO WE ALL CAN SEE!

  12. Well after the do some explaining as to their actions, then they need to get their walking papers, LAST PAY CHECK and only than, NO BENEFITS, and that pay check is to be figured up to the minute , after their explaining. They thru their IGNORANCE, have put the safety of all of the people in the USA in danger, including their own families , make sure they are not carriers and then KICK THEM TO THE CURB, Mr POTUS 45th. and R.C.U, screw your captcha code

  13. Unfortunately, too many of the democrats, espoecially in Congress, will try to shift all the blame on to the President.
