US panel on opening economy to have Kushners, but no health experts — report

Fox News reports that a task force on re-opening the economy to be announced by US President Donald Trump later will include his daughter, Ivanka Trump, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, his treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, and financial adviser Larry Kudlow.

It will be headed by White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Other names include Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Purdue, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, and HUD head Ben Carson.

Aside from Carson, who used to practice as a brain surgeon, the task force does not appear to include any doctors or public health experts, and will seemingly be singularly focused on restarting the economy, something Trump has shown he is antsy to do.

According to Fox, Trump previewed the task force on Friday, saying it would include doctors and business leaders and “include names that you have a lot of respect for.”
