White House COVID-19 Task Force Staying Put

Trump reverses his decision to disband Task Force and will keep Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx.

Washington, D. C. (Wednesday, May 6, 2020) – In a complete about face, President Trump is reversing his stance on the White House Coronavirus Task Force now saying it will be around “indefinitely.”  President Trump made that declaration today less than 24-hours after saying he was planning to disband the task force by the end of this month.

“I had no idea how popular the task force is, but actually yesterday, when I started talking about winding it down; I got calls from very respected people saying I think it would be better to keep it going,” said Trump.

Trump also said Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx will remain on the task force.
