Donald Trump lied about firing the pandemic response team of the CDC during a press briefing at the White House today. He also took the opportunity to slander the reporter who asked the question which he described as "nasty".
In 2018, Donald Trump fired the pandemic unit of the CDC saying "we don't need them." Today he said he doesn't remember and that it was a nasty question. That was just one year ago. Does Donald Trump have dementia memory loss?
Just to highlight how Donald Trump doesn't care about average Americans and just himself, he was even late for this press conference. With Donald Trump there is no accountability. He single-handedly created this mess surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus in the United States.
Donald Trump admitting he fired the pandemic team:

He called my question nasty & said he knew nothing about it.
I call it a relevant, fair, and truth-seeking question. https://t.co/ncYwqZ0Xtp
