Jared Kushner Hails “Great Success Story” as U.S. Deaths Top 60,000

HeadlineApr 30, 2020

The worldwide death toll from the coronavirus pandemic is nearing 228,000 people, with more than 3.2 million confirmed cases. In the hardest-hit nation, the United States, the official death toll has reached 61,000, although data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest thousands more have died of the disease than have been officially reported. At the White House, President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner on Wednesday called the federal response to the coronavirus crisis “a great success story.”

Jared Kushner: “And again, we’re on the other side of the medical aspect of this, and I think that we’ve achieved all the different milestones that are needed. So, the government, federal government, rose to the challenge, and this is a great success story.”
