The Trump administration has been withholding a stockpile of 20,000 ventilators and has yet to say how many have been released.

During an interview on Fox News Tuesday, Vice President Mike Pence to answer that question after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) urged the administration to release the federal stockpile of ventilators as COVID-19 cases surge in the state.

“Those are needed when this thing kicks in,” Fox News host Harris Faulkner explained to Pence. “It attacks your lungs and it becomes pneumonic. It is powerful stuff and we need to gear up.”

“So, if the spike now is doubling the number of cases in New York every three days,” the Fox News host continued, “and we’re almost at what we thought would be an apex and we’re not there yet.”

Faulkner went on to note that the country was “woefully underprepared on the number of ventilators.”

“Why not just release that stockpile now?” she wondered.

“Well, what I can tell you and your viewers,” Pence replied, “is that we’re doing just that. We’re in the process of literally sending the entire national stockpile out.”

“We are spinning up industry every single day,” Pence insisted. “And the president’s made it fully clear, he’s fully prepared to use the Defense Production Act.”

If You Thought Kamala Harris Was Tough On Brett Kavanaugh, Just Wait Until She Debates Mike Pence

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate. Following the news of Biden’s selection, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace called into her network while on vacation to point out that Harris will mop the floor with Vice President Mike Pence during debates.

“The other piece of reporting I’ve picked up in the past week was from the Trump team, that from their viewpoint, because Donald Trump has no capacity to understand that this is the selection of a person to run the government with the president, he only saw this in terms of casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, and this was the pick that scared them the most,” Wallace told MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

“They thought she would more than go toe-to-toe with [Mike] Pence, they thought she could chew him up and spit him out and pointed to her cross-examination of one Bill Barr,” she explained.

“I don’t know that there’s a better debater or questioner on the political field right now,” Wallace said. Her skill-set is unmatched in terms much being able to articulate an argument, to patiently wait to make her point and look at the argument that the democratic ticket has to make.”
