Trump ‘Cares’ So Much About Science That He Has ZERO Staffers Left At White House Science Division

According to multiple sources who spoke with CBS News, The science division of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has no more staff members.

The sources who spoke with the news outlet said three holdovers from former President Obama’s administration, all left the White House this week.

The former assistant director for biomedical and forensics sciences in the division, Eleanor Celeste, hinted on Twitter that she would be parting ways with the office this week.

What seems strange is that a White House official told CBS News that the science and technology office was still functioning with 35 staffers, although on Friday none appeared to be present.

That number under Obama was 100, one-hundred staffers worked under the Obama administration.

“All of the work that we have been doing is still being done,” the official said.

The news comes a week after President Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency notified dozens of scientists that their advisory positions with the agency would not be renewed.

“The administrator believes we should have people on this board who understand the impact of regulations on the regulated community,” spokesperson J.P. Freire told The New York Times.
