Trump Calls Dr. Deborah Birx ‘Pathetic’ After She Says COVID-19 is ‘Extraordinarily Widespread’

House speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Aug. 2 that Dr. Deborah Birx, the coronavirus task force coordinator, has helped President Donald Trumpspread “disinformation” about the COVID-19 virus and the administration’s response, reports The Guardian.

Birx responded on Aug. 2 by telling CNN that the country has entered a “new phase” of the deadly pandemic:

I want to be very clear: What we’re seeing today is different from March and April. It is extraordinarily widespread.

Birx said it was “possible” that COVID-19 related deaths could top 300,000 by the end of the year, which was projected by former Food and Drug Administration commissioner Scott Gottlieb, notes the Washington Post.

Trump responded with a childish insult on Twitter.
