  • CNN published this video item, entitled “Ex-task force member in new video: Trump only cares about reelection” – below is their description.

    A former top aide to Vice President Mike Pence assailed President Donald Trump’s response to the pandemic in a new video adding to the growing list of former Trump administration officials who have criticized the President and, in several cases, endorsed his Democratic opponent Joe Biden. Olivia Troye, who was a homeland security adviser to Pence and his lead staffer on the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force, charged in the two-minute video that Trump failed to protect the American public because he only cared about himself and getting reelected. Troye’s criticism is particularly striking because of her role working on the coronavirus task force, which Pence leads. “We knew that there were going to be increasing cases, we knew that people were going to die,” said Troye, who left the White House in late July. “But the President didn’t want to hear that, because his biggest concern was that we were in an election year, and how was this going to affect what he considered to be his record of success?” A White House official said Troye “never once expressed any concern about the administration’s handling and routinely claimed she ‘just wanted to do right by the VP and POTUS.'” “This is yet another example of someone who had proximity to power, yet didn’t use their voice to speak up at horrors they allegedly witnessed. The president would never say any such thing,” the official said. At one coronavirus task force meeting, Troye claimed that Trump suggested “maybe this Covid thing is a good thing.” #TheLead #CNN #News
