The Trump administration quietly stripped coronavirus aid meant to help disinfect New York’s transit systems, schools and other public facilities.

Stephen Miller is the worst speech writer in modern White House history - incapable of embracing any thoughts other than carnage, conflict and chaos. Completely devoid of aspiration, hope, community and generosity. A reflection of him and the man he works for.
