Scientist: Trump Ignored COVID-19 Warnings, We’ll See ‘Darkest Winter in Modern History’ | NowThis
‘2020 could be the darkest winter in modern history.’ — Fired scientist Dr. Rick Bright said President Donald Trump ignored his warnings about the coronavirus and that the worst of COVID-19 is still yet to come.
In US news and current events today, states across the country are reeling from the spread of COVID19 amid the coronavirus pandemic. Many people are pointing fingers at President Donald Trump and VP Mike Pence for the U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Rick Bright says President Donald Trump had him fired from leading the quest for a coronavirus vaccine as political payback for questioning Trump’s unfounded claims about hydroxychloroquine. Dr. Rick Bright says he tried to warn the Trump administration of the deadly threat of COVID-19 in January, but his concerns were dismissed. Today he testified before Congress, warning that the U.S. will face ‘unprecedented illness and fatalities’ without more aggressive, nationwide action to address COVID-19.
PURGED VIRUS WHISTLEBLOWER TO TESTIFY THAT TRUMP WAS UNPREPARED FOR COVID-19 Rick Bright, the recently ousted government vaccine official, will testify before Congress on Thursday that the Trump administration was unprepared for the coronavirus pandemic and that the U.S. may soon face its “darkest winter in modern history.” “The world is confronting a great public health emergency which has the potential to eclipse the devastation wrought by the 1918 influenza which globally claimed over 50 million lives,” Bright says in his prepared remarks.

‘NOT ACCEPTABLE’: TRUMP UNDERCUTS FAUCI President Donald Trump urged schools to reopen “as soon as possible” as the coronavirus continues to spread, dismissing infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci’s calls for caution. “He wants to play all sides of the equation,” the president said of Fauci. “I was surprised by his answer,” Trump added, “because you know it’s just to me, it’s not an acceptable answer, especially when it comes to schools.” Trump was referencing Fauci’s testimony to the Senate warning lawmakers that reopening the country too soon could lead to “suffering and death that could be avoided.” [HuffPost]
TRUMP CITES VIRUS AS REASON TO EXPEL MIGRANT YOUTHS The young migrants and asylum seekers swim across the Rio Grande and clamber into the dense brush of Texas. Many are teens who left Central America on their own; others were sent along by parents from refugee camps in Mexico. They are as young as 10. Under U.S. law they would normally be allowed to live with relatives while their cases wind through immigration courts. Instead, the Trump administration is quickly expelling them under an emergency declaration citing the coronavirus pandemic, with 600 minors expelled in April alone. [AP]
