WH Advisor: Scary To Work There After COVID Cases

The Hill reports:

President Trump economic adviser Kevin Hassett said Sunday that it is “scary” working at the White House after two staff members tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

“It is scary to go to work,” Hassett told CBS’s Face The Nation. “I think that I’d be a lot safer if I was sitting at home than I would be going to the West Wing. But you know it’s a time when people have to step up and serve their country.”

Hassett’s comments come as White House staff members have tested positive for COVID-19, leading three top officials to self-quarantine for two weeks in an effort to contain the spread.
