RNC Chair: History Will Vindicate Trump On Pandemic

NBC News reports:

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Sunday defended President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, after book excerpts released last week showed that the president publicly downplayed the threat in the pandemic’s early months.

In an interview with “Meet the Press,” McDaniel maintained that “20/20 vision is, in hindsight, perfect,” and insisted that Trump acted “calm and steady and methodical” as he handled the pandemic, pointing to early steps he took like cancelling travel from China and creating the coronavirus task force.

“The president was calm and steady in a time of unrest and uncertainty. And I think history will look back on him well as to how he handled this pandemic,” she said.
