Trump et al. are wrong: Biden Cancer Initiative is not to be confused with the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot

By Matthew Bin Han Ong

On Nov. 15, shortly after midnight, President Donald J. Trump tweeted a link to a New York Post headline:

“Tax filings reveal Biden cancer charity spent millions on salaries, zero on research”

Waking up later that morning, Fox News host Laura Ingraham and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, gleefully lent their voices to the now-familiar cacophony of disinformation. A day later, Fox News host Sean Hannity joined their chorus.

For those just tuning in, the president was retweeting a story about the Biden Cancer Initiative, a small organization that is not to be confused with the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot, a bipartisan effort to increase funding for cancer research.

The Moonshot demonstrates President-elect Joe Biden’s deep understanding of cancer and defines Biden’s legacy in the Obama administration (The Cancer Letter, Nov. 13, 2020). The Post story and the subsequent brouhaha are noteworthy because of their failure to recognize the fact that Biden had already obtained $1.8 billion for cancer research via the 2016 Moonshot—and to distinguish between the Moonshot and a small nonprofit that was never intended to fund research. Creating confusion—conflating—seems to be the point.

Let’s untangle this knot: 

  • The Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot is a government program resulting from an unprecedented bipartisan effort to double the rate of progress in cancer research. In 2016, then Vice President Biden’s leadership and steadfast congressional support for biomedical research culminated in the Moonshot legislation, which authorized $1.8 billion over seven years for cancer research (The Cancer Letter, Dec. 16, 2016).

  • The Biden Cancer Initiative, the object of coverage here, was a short-lived cancer nonprofit that was launched in New York on June 26, 2017, in the afterglow of the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot of 2016 (The Cancer Letter, June 30, 2017). The organization ran for two years, suspending operations during the Biden presidential run.

The New York Post is factually correct on one point: The Biden Cancer Initiative funded no research. That’s because, again, it was never intended to.

What's True

The Biden Cancer Initiative, a charity founded by U.S. President-elect Joe Biden and soon-to-be first lady Jill Biden in 2017, spent more than $3 million on salaries when it was in operation.

What's False

Although the charity spent no money on cancer research grants, this fact is misleadingly framed in that the Biden Cancer Initiative wasn't a grant-giving organization.
 

Do you own research and get off Barry’s ####.

Again, you try your best to provoke people and then gleefully wait for a response. Children play better mind games. If you had any real thought input and not just “yea what Barry said” people would might play along more.

You're wrong and you lap up blogs and alt right sites to try and be righteous, then get nasty and personal although clearly proven wrong. Remember that time Trump had to pay 25 million dollars over Trump University and had to shut down his foundation? 
Your Trump lost, but it will be okay. 
Oh, and no one cares about Hunter Biden smears. 
 

Can't we all just get along? 😏
