Nov 9, 2016, Atlanta NPR, WABE: Atlanta CDC Employees Express Anxiety Over Trump's Win
Some employees in Atlanta outside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they were anxious about President-elect Donald Trump leading the nation and appointing public health leaders who are against mandatory vaccinations.
Employees at the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the mood in their office is somber.
The employees of one of the largest federal agencies in Atlanta said they're concerned about job safety, funding and new public health policies under Donald Trump's presidency.
At the General Muir deli across the street from the CDC, a few employees talked to WABE, asking that their names not be used. One microbiologist said her colleagues were crying in the hallways.
"It's really sad,” she said. “It's depressing. I'm eating a bagel to try and be happy."
She said she's worried Trump might appoint public health leaders who may not be in total support of mandatory vaccinations, pointing to Dr. Ben Carson or Florida Governor Rick Scott....
In an emailed statement, the CDC wrote: "As always in political transitions, CDC stands ready to work with the new administration to protect and advance America's health security."
Seriously, the CDC has lots of reasons to worry about what going to happen with Donald Trump as President of the United States. He may be the just the person to expose the horrendous fraud, cover-up and damage swirling around our unchecked, unsafe, heavily conflicted vaccination schedule.
