Internet Destroys Jared Kushner For Saying ‘Our Stockpile’ Isn’t Meant For States To use

White House adviser Jared Kushner, son-in-law to President Donald Trump, declared on Thursday that the stockpiles of much-needed supplies governors were requesting to help with the coronavirus pandemic weren’t actually meant for the states to use.

“The notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile,” Kushner said. “It’s not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use.”

Kushner also insisted that they had found supplies and distributed them “where we anticipate there will be needs.”

But his explanation about the federal stockpile and its purpose didn’t sit right with many.

Twitter users were quick to school Kushner and wonder who the “our” in his statement referred to, if not the people of the United States:

According to the Strategic National Stockpile website, “when a state, local, tribal, and territorial responders request federal assistance to support their response efforts, the stockpile ensures that the right medicines and supplies get to those who need them most during an emergency.

The website also noted that the stockpile could “resupply state and local public health agencies in a catastrophic health event.”
