Asked on ABC’s „This Week“ whether the account was true and if she has confidence in Birx, Pelosi said, „I think the President is spreading disinformation about the virus and she is his appointee, so I don’t have confidence there, no.“
“Deborah Birx is the worst. Wow, what horrible hands you’re in,” Pelosi said at the meeting, according to Politico.

In the past Merkel has refrained from wading into monetary policy by defending the independence of the European Central Bank. President Donald Trump has been more pointed, arguing the Federal Reserve has been too aggressive in raising rates. In the U.K., the Bank of England has come under attack from pro-Brexit supporters over its grim economic forecasts about the costs of leaving the European Union.
Today in Brexit: May’s big Brexit debate is overshadowed by more parliamentary guerrilla tactics.
Some companies may misrepresent things, or try to play down stories, but outright fabrication is not at all common (and the consequences of a company doing it would be severe). And here, both Amazon and Apple’s denials were so clear, so specific and so adamant that it raised serious questions about the reporting.
Die Sensationsmeldung des Wirtschaftsportals Bloomberg über manipulierte Hardware für Cloud Computing stellt sich im FM4-Faktencheck als fast völlig faktenfrei heraus. Am Freitag kam ein langerwarteter Bericht des Pentagon heraus, der vor der Elektronikfertigung in China warnt.
