A current example:

Trump lies about deadly coronavirus in Super Bowl interview: ‘We’ve pretty much shut it down’


“For the United States, the answers are especially worrying because
the government has intentionally rendered itself incapable,” FP wrote.
“In 2018, the Trump administration fired the government’s entire pandemic response chain of command, including the White House management
infrastructure. In numerous phone calls and emails with key agencies
across the U.S. government, the only consistent response I encountered
was distressed confusion. If the United States still has a clear chain
of command for pandemic response, the White House urgently needs to
clarify what it is — not just for the public but for the government
itself, which largely finds itself in the dark.”

Trump’s administration has been at war with science since he first took office. Now it could cost lives.

“When Ebola broke out in West Africa in 2014, President Barack Obama
recognized that responding to the outbreak overseas, while also
protecting Americans at home, involved multiple U.S. government
departments and agencies, none of which were speaking to one another,”
FP explained. “Basically, the U.S. pandemic infrastructure was an
enormous orchestra full of talented, egotistical players, each jockeying
for solos and fame, refusing to rehearse, and demanding higher
salaries—all without a conductor."

Obama’s administration brought “order and harmony” to what was absolute chaos. Under Trump, all of that is gone.

“Obama anointed a former vice presidential staffer, Ronald Klain, as a
sort of ‘epidemic czar’ inside the White House, clearly stipulated the
roles and budgets of various agencies, and placed incident commanders in
charge in each Ebola-hit country and inside the United States,” FP
continued. “The orchestra may have still had its off-key instruments,
but it played the same tune.”
