RNC Chairwoman: History Will Vindicate Trump On Pandemic
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Rona McDaniel defended President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus on Sunday, suggesting that history will look kindly on Trump’s efforts.
The interview came after excerpts from Bob Woodward’s new book showed that Trump downplayed the virus’ threat in public in the early months of the pandemic, despite knowing the gravity of the situation.
From NBC News:
In an interview with “Meet the Press,” McDaniel maintained that “20/20 vision is, in hindsight, perfect,” and insisted that Trump acted “calm and steady and methodical” as he handled the pandemic, pointing to early steps he took like cancelling travel from China and creating the coronavirus task force.
“The president was calm and steady in a time of unrest and uncertainty. And I think history will look back on him well as to how he handled this pandemic,” she said.
