New York Governor Andrew Cuomo acknowledged on Friday that his state does have a stockpile of unused ventilators, despite his complaint that the federal government was not sending enough.
As reported by Breitbart News, Cuomo responded to a comment from President Trump on Twitter that there were thousands of ventilators in New York not being used: “Yes, they’re in a stockpile because that’s where they are supposed to be, because we don’t need them yet. We need them for the apex, the apex isn’t here, so we’re gathering them in a stockpile.”
This comment by Cuomo, who is being groomed by the establishment media to step in for doddering Joe Biden as the Party’s presidential nominee, demonstrates that there is not an immediate shortage in ventilators in the city, despite his repeated complaints that the federal government is not sending enough ventilators.
On Tuesday, VP Mike Pence said the government had sent 2,000 ventilators to New York and an additional 2,000 more on Wednesday.
