Six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS have resigned, saying President Trump doesn’t care about HIV. They announced their resignations in a joint letter published in Newsweek titled “Trump doesn’t care about HIV. We’re outta here.” In the letter, they wrote, “As advocates for people living with HIV, we have dedicated our lives to combating this disease and no longer feel we can do so effectively within the confines of an advisory body to a president who simply does not care.” Later in the broadcast, we’ll speak with Scott Schoettes, one of the six who resigned.
