Secret Recording Shows ‘Pro-Life’ Sen. Richard Burr Warned Rich Donors About Coronavirus Weeks Ago, Hid Truth From Public
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) was recorded on Feb. 27 warning wealthy donors — Tar Heel Circle — at a luncheon about how deadly the copronavirus was going to be, but did not sound the same alarm for the general public, reports NPR:
There’s one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history. It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic.
On the same day, President Donald Trump Americans the opposite:
It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle. It will disappear. It could get worse before it gets better. It could maybe go away. We’ll see what happens.
Burr warned the wealthy donors not to travel, but it would be 13 days more until the State Department began to warn against travel to Europe,
