Mark Meadows says Trump health care plan ‘ready’: ‘executive action with a legislative component’
“It’s ready, we’ve been making a number of tweaks and modifications,” Meadows told reporters Tuesday at the White House.
“I think if we look at legislation, nothing gets done in Congress. They can’t even agree on the corona issue,” Meadows said of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Part of the delay is we had to look at legislative parts, and we had to put it in this box, then we had to figure out what to do administratively. We had to get creative with executive powers.”
“What we can do is bring health care costs down through executive action, and with a legislative component,” Meadows said. He added that he is “not optimistic” that Congress will “come together” on a health care agreement.
AG Bill Barr Slams Democrats for Demanding ‘Biden or No Peace’: ‘Rule by the Mob’
Barr was in Chicago for Operation LeGend, the federal effort to shore up local law enforcement in several cities that have crime waves in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests and riots.
He said that after crime rates had fallen across the nation for two decades, recent liberal reforms in many parts of the country had created new threats to public safety.

Trump campaign asks Twitter to mark Biden coronavirus ad as manipulated media, but company refuses
The Trump campaign on Tuesday asked Twitter to label a video posted by Joe Biden’s campaign as manipulated media over a clip that they say takes President Trump’s words out of context and has been repeatedly fact-checked as incorrect manipulation, but the company declined to do so, according to emails obtained by Fox News.
The splicing is identical to how the Biden campaign cut a video of the Feb. 28 address in a March video that got four Pinnochios from the Washington Post, and was panned by several other fact-checkers.
The president did not say “this is their new hoax” immediately after he said “coronavirus” in his original comments, as the ad makes it appear.

Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route
The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of the global economy.
Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial.
The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support.
The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus.
