US Presidential Administration Donald Trump is exploring a possible line of defense in the event of new Congressional investigations into his actions against coronavirus. It is reported by ABC News with reference to sources.
In particular, representatives of the Democratic Party decided to find out whether the presidentвЂ™s team was ready for an epidemic and what they did to minimize losses. In addition, they want to control the distribution of previously allocated financial assistance. TrumpвЂ™s defense is being addressed by attorneys Vice President Mike Pence.
On April 1, Trump announced that he intentionally hid the truth about the possible threat of coronavirus at the beginning of the epidemic. вЂњI knew everything. I knew that it could be terrible, I knew that everything would be, perhaps, good. And I donвЂ™t want to be a pessimist, вЂќ the American leader admitted, adding that, in his opinion, it is important to give people hope. This model of behavior has been criticized by some health experts who believe that the United States missed an important time because of this.
