Adam Schiff On Trump's Response To Coronavirus: 'Incompetence Kills'

Description:

Rep. Adam Schiff tells Lawrence O'Donnell that the White House's handling of coronavirus has been "unfortunately plagued with incompetence" in terms of testing and knowing who is infected after an aide to Senator Maria Cantwell tested positive for the virus. "We're now in the position of trying to make up for lost time that we will never get back," he said. Aired on 3/11/2020.


Joe Biden is taking aim at President Trump's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On Monday, the former vice president made his first public appearance in 74 days by paying tribute on Memorial Day. CBS News 2020 campaign reporter Bo Erickson joins CBSN with the latest.
President Trump's attitude towards coronavirus has shifted. He has changed his views on social distancing, willingness to compare Covid-19 to the flu, and message around when the pandemic will end.
CBS News' Weijia Jiang on Sunday pressed President Trump on why he didn't warn people in February that coronavirus was spreading. Watch their exchange.
A recent piece by 60 Minutes criticized the trump administration's response to coronavirus, while going a step further to praise China for its response. One America's Jack Posobiec has the details.
