Reaction to the news from the White House
No statement was made from the CIA and the National Intelligence Office about the news of the Washington Post, but White House Deputy Spokesperson Hogan Gidley said:
“While the Media and Democrats have focused only on a ridiculous and illegitimate dismissal process, President Trump took historic, aggressive measures to protect the health, wealth and security of the American people. It is disgusting, despicable, and embarrassing to try to rewrite the history of unnamed cowardly sources.”
Trump argued that the virus will pass in April
“When April arrives, the virus will miraculously disappear as the weather gets warmer,” Trump asked him about Kovid-19 in a statement on February 19. he said and argued that the Democrats were panicking for his political interests.
