White House changes mission of Strategic National Stockpile website to reflect Kushner's lies that supplies are not for states - 2020-04-03
The Trump White House has changed the official stated mission of the Strategic National Stockpile after Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner lied during Thursday's nationally televised coronavirus task force briefing. Kushner's words immediately caused outrage as video of his false claim circulated quickly on social media. By Friday morning #JaredKushnerForPrison was trending on social media.
The mission of the Strategic National Stockpile, according to its website which was changed late Friday morning, had read:
"Strategic National Stockpile is the nation's largest supply of life-saving pharmaceuticals and medical supplies for use in a public health emergency severe enough to cause local supplies to run out."
