Perhaps he thinks it only affects drug users and gays, both of which he probably doesn't care much about anyway, they're only people after all.

Let's See. we have the WHO, World Health, we have the CDC and NIH, APHA and other health care groups out the WAZOO, so why did there come a Necessity for a lone singular events statistic investigatory group feeding off the federal dime? Duplicative organizations require moneys that could be, would be better spent by less spread of wealth.

There is no logical reason for Trump's actions except to cater to the bigots in his ever shrinking base.

Re: Trump Fires Entire Council on HIV/AIDS With No Explanation


Before hyperventilating to the point of passing out, everyone should wait until it becomes apparent that he's not planning on appointing people to fill the now-empty seats, or appoints people who are unqualified. This is standard Trump operating procedure - he doesn't want holdovers from the previous administration, so he dumps all of them immediately rather than following standard practice of appointing new members as holdover members' appointments expire.

It isn't a political branch, they are unpaid volunteers of mixed politics. They are from all over the country and there are those who were also from the Bush admin. He doesn't give a rat's behind about persons with HIV/AIDS.

It doesn't make any difference to Trump what the nature of the group is. He only wants to have his appointees on the panel. Now, if he doesn't appoint replacements, or the replacements he appoints aren't qualified, then you have some justification for your speculation on his motives.

If he wants to get political with an advisory board of A couple dozen volunteers he will do what he did in his own admin., not hire the best or hire "antis" and that is if the board even continues.

We're seeing in this thread why Trump was able to "eat" America. The internet has fostered extreme reactions to everything - Trump has not only exploited that attitude but has fed it through his actions.

I don't think it is extreme, it is what happens when a president lies so much you don't trust him, so I'm calling it a lack of trust, then there is his crazy speeches and twitter.

The council received a letter "terminating their appointments" or we could say got their walking papers if one doesn't like the word "fired." I read six members quit last June, stating, "he doesn't care." Duh.

My boss terminates me, I tell everyone I was fired. Nicer word, termination, same meaning though. I would loose a paycheck, they will not, at the end of the day still fired though because you no longer are doing that 'job,' paid or unpaid!

Still, VOLUNTEERS, UNPAID, cannot be "Fired" but released from any activity that requires Federal Funding. NOT FIRED, NOT TERMINATED. Closed would fit, ceased donations would fit, ceased Grants or Federal Funding would fit.

The fact that they were not paid is immaterial. They were dismissed from their posts.

I wished I was still working, as a supervisor who hired and fired, I would love to use the term, "you are released from activity." Maybe on the Donald's next tv show he can give it a go.

Not semantics, point of fact, cannot FIRE a volunteer, just send them home as there is NO pay, NO benefits and no employ record.

cooter, you are quibbling over the least important factor in this event.

The people are no longer part of the picture, it doesn't matter whether they were paid or not.

Like a business ( who has gone bankrupt 4 times) Trump just fires those that do tell what he wants to hear.

See: I was on Trump’s voter fraud commission. Its demise was inevitable.
By Matt Dunlap

"The demise of the commission was inevitable simply because the voter-fraud vampire hunters on the panel and in the White House prioritized a desired result of the commission’s work above any sense of process. It didn’t matter that evidence of actual voter misconduct is incredibly rare anywhere in the United States; we’ve all heard the ghost stories, and the Trump administration’s solution was to find those ghosts and exorcise them.

But that’s not how the Trump administration spun the commission’s work.

I was on Trump’s voter fraud commission. Its demise was inevitable.
By Matt Dunlap, The Washington Post • January 8, 2018 12:03 pm

George Danby | BDN
It didn’t surprise me when I got an email from the White House on Wednesday night that President Donald Trump had moved to dissolve the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The move came without warning, but given how incredibly dysfunctional the process had been from the start, dissolution was inevitable.

Twelve days earlier, U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled that as a member of the commission, I am entitled to share in the work of the commission and to know when and where we were meeting, what communications we were having and what the commission was working on. That shockingly obvious conclusion came only after I filed a lawsuit to get answers to those very basic questions.

The demise of the commission was inevitable simply because the voter-fraud vampire hunters on the panel and in the White House prioritized a desired result of the commission’s work above any sense of process. It didn’t matter that evidence of actual voter misconduct is incredibly rare anywhere in the United States; we’ve all heard the ghost stories, and the Trump administration’s solution was to find those ghosts and exorcise them.

But that’s not how the Trump administration spun the commission’s work.

I, for one, took Vice President Mike Pence at his word when he said at our initial meeting in Washington on July 19 that the commission would go forward without “preconceived notions or preordained results.” But statements made by Vice Chairman Kris Kobach and the president have made it clear that not everyone shared that laudable philosophy. After dissolving the commission, the president said on Twitter that we need strong voter identification laws to fight rampant voter fraud, and Kobach explained that Trump’s directive to shift the work to the Department of Homeland Security represents a “tactical shift by the president who remains very committed to finding the scope of voter fraud.”

No preordained results. No preconceived notions. Indeed."

... as a fine different example of the same behavior.

It is a under reported related story.
