Collins Is Very Concerned About Trump’s COVID Lies

CNN reports:

Republican Sen. Susan Collins said President Donald Trump “should have been straightforward with the American people” about the threat from the coronavirus, during a debate Friday night in Maine for her state’s competitive Senate race.

“The American people can take hard facts. And he had an obligation as President to be straightforward with them and to tell all that he has known,” Collins said in response to a question about Trump’s stunning admission to Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward that he had downplayed the severity of the virus.

The four-term senator, who’s facing the toughest reelection campaign of her career, had ignored reporters’ questions about Trump’s remarks for two days at the US Capitol this week.
