President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House advisor Jared Kushner told Fox News that the Trump administration is “doing a lot of things right” handling the coronavirus pandemic, which he called a “great success story” as the American death toll (58,365) passed the Vietnam War death total (58,220).
The federal government rose to the challenge, and this is a great success story, and I think that, that’s really what needs to be told. We’re on the other side of the medical aspect of this and I think that we’ve achieved all the different milestones that are needed.
There is no evidence that the U.S. in on “the other side” of the deadly pandemic as hospitals still lack basic PPE equipment and ventilators.
Kushner was asked why the Trump administration has failed to come up with a national plan (after four months).
Kushner mentioned the White House Testing Overview, which is not a national plan to combat the coronavirus, but rather a plan to re-open the country for business: “We released the strategy document earlier this week, it was an 8-step plan, and seven of those steps have been completed.”
