President Donald Trump is being slammed for contradicting a nurse who mentioned that the availability of personal protective equipment has been “sporadic” during a White House event Wednesday to recognize National Nurses Day, telling her “sporadic for you but not sporadic for a lot of other people.”

The nurse, Sophia Thomas, is president of the National Association of Nurse Practitioners. She told the president there are “pockets” around the country without sufficient protective medical equipment as health care professionals battle the coronavirus.

“PPE has been sporadic but it’s been manageable,” Thomas said of her health system. “And we do what we have to do. We’re nurses and we learn to adapt and do whatever the best thing that we can do for our patients to get the job done and get the care provided.”

Trump immediately replied saying: “Sporadic for you but not sporadic for a lot of other people.”
