Trump Admin. Claims U.S. Has 'Regained Control' Of Covid-19
The Trump administration says the U.S. has regained control of Covid-19 as the confirmed death toll tops 200,000 people. We discuss that with Ashley Parker of The Washington Post. Aired on 09/21/2020.
President Trump's campaign has to reevaluate its reelection strategy now that the president has tested positive for COVID-19. Not only have Mr. Trump's advisers had to cancel upcoming events, but the focus of his campaign has shifted to the coronavirus pandemic. Republican donor Dan Eberhart joined CBSN's Lana Zak to discuss. The Washington Post reported that Bob Woodward's new book, "Rage" consisting of a dozen interviews with President Trump from December 2019 through July 2020, shows that President Trump admits to knowing weeks before the first U.S. death that the coronavirus was dangerous. Aired on 09/09/2020. CNN's Brianna Keilar discusses how President Trump and Fox News are dangerously spinning the lethality of Covid-19 and selling Trump's coronavirus infection as "the sacrifice of a true leader." Dr. Anthony Fauci joins Andrea Mitchell to react President Trump's comments that the Regeneron therapy he received cured him of the coronavirus. Fauci comments that the president "looks good" but adds that at this stage of the virus, a "reversal" is possible given our knowledge of the history of COVID-19, and notes that while there's a "good chance" the therapy made him better, there's no determination yet that it's a cure.
