President Donald Trump’s press conference in the White House Rose Garden Friday afternoon with key members of his coronavirus task force was a reassuring affair after his disastrous Oval Office address on Wednesday night, writes Peter Bergen.
WORTH REPEATING INDEED. IN 2018, TRUMP FIRED THE ENTIRE US PANDEMIC RESPONSE TEAM. Today, Every American is paying the price for his abject incompetence. Instead of strengthening our institutions he attacked them and killed them off. The hour of accountability is coming. https://t.co/0DQcOvz6Wf
