Trump admin vs CDC

CDC has lost credibility by holding up the process for shutting travel down, testing, drug studies, and the seriousness of the pandemic in the early stages. It seems like the cdc wants to accuse WH for withholding their recommendations, emphasizing church? Walking a fine line there. If liquor and retail stores and malls can start opening it is our God given basic right to have freedom of religion. I thought AP is supposed to be unbiased and gave it a try but this isn’t news.
