A former top aide on the White House coronavirus task force has announced she is voting for Joe Biden, claiming President Trump has shown a “flat-out disregard for human life.” Olivia Troye served as Vice President Mike Pence’s lead staffer on the task force from February until July. Troye is featured in a new ad by Republican Voters Against Trump.
Olivia Troye: “Towards the middle of February, we knew it wasn’t a matter of if COVID would become a big pandemic here in the United States; it was a matter of when. But the president didn’t want to hear that, because his biggest concern was that we in were an election year. And how is this going to affect what he considered to be his record of success? It was shocking to see the president saying that the virus was a hoax, saying that everything’s OK, when we knew that it’s not. The truth is, he doesn’t actually care about anyone else but himself.”
