Has Team Trump Announced Its Surrender To The Pandemic?


It seems that the Trump administration has announced its surrender to the COVID-19 pandemic. "We are not going to control the pandemic. We are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics, and other mitigation areas", White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told CNN on Monday.


The statement is being considered as an unconditional surrender from the Trump team by liberal news outlets such as The Washington Post. The virus has heretofore claimed more than 220,00 lives in the United States. It is being said that Trump chose the economy over trying to stop the spread of the Coronavirus.


Trump's handling of the pandemic is one of the major issues in the November 3rd Presidential Election. Trump's opponent, Joe Biden, has maintained a stable lead of around 10 points in National Polls. However, Joe Biden has a narrower lead in battleground states such as Arizona, Florida, Texas, and Iowa.
