President Donald Trump speaks on Dec. 18 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C. Trump recently dismissed the remaining members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS.
Donald Trump’s dismissal of remaining members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, which has been charged with advising the administration’s policymaking since 1995, should send a clear signal to his base of his utter lack of interest not only in this disease, but many other key social and economic issues affecting us all.
The message to his base is this: Candidate Trump and President Trump are two different animals. We are left with an administration having no strategy, approach or desire for improving our day-to-day lives. When you wake up tomorrow to read his next tweets, think long and hard about the long-term implications to what he is saying. Then ask yourself: Is this what I voted for?
