Keep in mind when he was spearheading the COVID-19 response? That didn’t go so nicely. However to anybody who’s speculated that Trump’s actual m.o. wasn’t “saving” the nation however lining his pockets with as a lot as he may, this admission from certainly one of his closest associates provides additional gasoline to that fireplace.
