Taking questions from reporters before leaving for a trip to Arizona, Trump confirmed Dr Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease specialist, would testify before the Senate but not the House.
Asked why he would not let Fauci testify before the Democratic-controlled House, the president said, “Because the House is a set-up. The House is a bunch of Trump haters.”
The president then alarmingly accused Democrats of wanting the country’s response to coronavirus to fail. “They frankly want our situation to be unsuccessful, which means death,” Trump said, providing no evidence for the sensational accusation.
Some of the president’s allies have similarly claimed, without any kind of proof, that Democrats are resisting the reopening of the economy to hurt Trump’s chances of reelection.
But that baseless argument ignores the fact that large majorities of Americans are opposed to reopening businesses like movie theaters, dine-in restaurants and nail salons.
