    Redfield was pretty clear in his answer, but the president claimed during his press conference hours later...

    7 days ago - By Mediaite

    President Donald Trump praised his own administration's response to the Covid-19 pandemic yet again at his daily White House press briefing, but this time he used some cold partisan calculations to claim that the nation's death toll numbers would look even better “if you took the blue states out.”
