Steve Cortes, former Trump Marketing campaign advisor is leaving right-wing cable channel Newsmax. He’ll host his final broadcast throughout the subsequent week.
In keeping with the dailybeast, Cortest and the community have had rigidity between them for a while. The host denies that there have been any points, however Newsmax’s company-wide vaccine coverage is what led him to exit.
Earlier this month, Newsmax instituted a rule that each one workers should both be vaccinated or undergo weekly COVID testing. The information of such a coverage, which was in compliance with the Biden administration’s coverage for companies with greater than 100 workers, pushed Cortes to unequivocally declare on Twitter that he wouldn’t have any a part of it.
The group instituted a compulsory rule that each one workers should check weekly for COVID or be vaccinated which is in compliance with the Biden administration coverage for midsize to giant companies. Cortest has been vocal about his disdain for vaccines, particularly on Twitter.
I cannot comply w/ any group’s try and implement Biden’s capricious & unscientific Medical Apartheid mandate.
I cannot be pressured into the injection, nor will I disclose my vaccination standing.
Nobody must be pressured to decide on between medical privateness & their job.
