    Very concerning. I hadn't previously read that the CDC funding was under such a threat.

    From an email from Solve ME/CFS Initiative:

    Of all the cuts proposed by Trump the NIH cut will probably be the hardest to implement. There will be a lot of protests from "high ranking" people, and probably even from congress.

    :mad: And there are some in our community who want to give Trump a chance. :rolleyes: Cut vital stuff like this but increase an already massive military budget, sounds like a great idea to me o_O

    If the Trump administration's attitude to ME/CFS is anything like its attitude to climate science, and science in general, and the Americans pull out of serious research for us, just as it is getting off the ground, then we are in trouble.

    :grumpy:
