To defend Trump’s administration’s coronavirus strategy, his son-in-law and White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner says others are trying to use the crisis to play politics, but not President Trump. He has done everything possible to get people the care that they need during the pandemic, he added.
In an attempt to praise Trump’s administration’s strategies Kushner said the virus that came from China had ravaged many countries across the world and as per him President Trump dealt with such unpredictable situation in a very responsible way.
Covid-19 has infected more than 5.6 million people across the U.S and has killed more than
1, 73,000 people as per the data from world meter. This accounts to around 25% of the
global cases reported so far, making the U.S one of the worst-hit nations.
In April when Peter G. Taylor, top emergency manager of the federal government, decided to announce the use of wartime production powers to get Covid-19 test kits and the approval for the same had come from Jared Kushner.
Without any medical expertise, Kushner became a crucial player in response to the pandemic with his abilities to take quick actions and enforce decisions.
In an interview, Kushner appreciated the government’s efforts at the time of the pandemic. Although there were reports about not having enough ventilators or the front liners not being able to get sufficient masks but in reality every person in American that needed a ventilator got one, Kushner said.
The Covid-19 response task forces led by Kushner and the government’s official task force headed by Vice President Mike Pence, both were aimed at delivering on time protective gear for front liners, and to get a national testing plan in action.
However, they were repeatedly accused of mishandling the situation due to lack of experience and for not being transparent enough.
“Our duty has been to deliver the resources timely, and we ensured that believing in
every governor’s ability to handle their respective states. President cannot go and tell
each one how to manage their states.
There are 50 states, which means a total of 50 governors and his job included working with all of them. There are always things that you think you could do differently, but in a critical challenge President has made a lot of right choices and done the best he could.” Kushner replied over the questions about decisions made by Trump and his administration.
