After Birx warned that the pandemic was “widely spreading” across the country, Trump, who had praised the Coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, publicly attacked Birx for the first time on Monday morning.
Birx often tries to draw a line between directly conflicting with the president and accurately portraying the data she browses. She was warned that something similar-Trump̵
Birx worked with Trump in the Oval Office on Monday, although one person declined to elaborate on the interaction.
When asked what Trump meant in the tweet, the president avoided the question, seeming to call back the temperature.
He told reporters at a press conference on Monday afternoon: “Well, I think we are doing very well, and we are doing as well as any country.”
Trump added: “I told Dr. Burks that we did a good job. She was in my office not long ago. She is someone I respect very much. I think Nancy Pelosi has a very bad attitude towards her. “And I’m just telling the fact that I think they should indeed say that we have done the work…I think we did a good job.”
She said: “What we see today is different from March and April. It is very common. It is equal in rural and urban areas.” This shows that some Americans in multi-generational families should start wearing masks in their homes. .
She did not reject the warning from former Federal Drug Administration Director Scott Gottlieb that 300,000 people may die from the coronavirus by the end of this year, and said: “Anything is possible.”
Burks also responded to a speech by Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, who said on ABC’s “This Week” that she had no confidence in the task force coordinator because the president continued to spread false information .
Pelosi said: “I think the president is spreading false information about the virus, and she is his appointee, so I have no confidence in there, no.”
Burks then defended himself on Sunday.
Burks said: “I have never been called a pollen, non-scientific or non-data-driven person.” “Moreover, I will put my 40-year career on those who use data to actually implement better programs to save More basic principles of life.”
In an executive order signed on Monday, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Trump why the health experts of the Coronavirus Task Force contradicted him.
The president objected: “I think we did a good job.”
Birx was able to establish a close relationship with the Trump White House, which affected her reputation among some public health experts. She avoided criticizing the government publicly. Dr. Anthony Fauci played a more public-facing role in many media, but was more irritated by the president. The president publicly criticized the doctor last week and questioned why Fuchs’ approval was so high at a press conference last week.
