HHS Trump official: Joe Biden picks 'unusually divisive' candidates
The former director of the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) during the presidency of Donald Trump said that President Joe Biden not only "breaks away from the rule of law" with his numerous executive orders, but also "compounds the error" with some "deeply divisive appointments." "Unusual" for his cabinet.
“Starting with the CEO’s orders, he is departing from the rule of law and compounding the bug with some extraordinarily divisive nominations for ministerial posts, starting with Xavier Becerra for HHS, which I cannot imagine a more divisive election of such importance,” Severino said. It's not an epidemiology. In fact, he is most famous, in terms of HHS, for being my opponents. "
Severino noted that some of his encounters with Becerra included the then-attorney general's attack on pro-life pregnancy centers and his alleged violation of the Weldon Amendment to require health insurance plans to cover elective abortions.
