In an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” former President Trump’s COVID-19 task force coordinator Deborah Birx said Trump received “parallel” coronavirus data.
Dr. Deborah Birx: “I saw the president presenting graphs that I never made. So I know that someone, or someone out there or someone inside, was creating a parallel set of data.”
The Biden administration confirmed over the weekend they were essentially left with no national vaccination plan from the Trump team. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said the administration is also concerned about “vaccine hesitancy,” which could prevent the U.S. from reaching herd immunity. Meanwhile, Moderna and Pfizer would need to nearly double the manufacturing and delivery of their vaccines in order to meet inoculation goals.
