It has been made clear that for a lot of Republicans it is more important to get the economy back up than people’s lives. That’s the case for Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R). He is now urging Trump not to change course despite new outbreaks in Arizona, Florida, Texas and other states.
Biggs’ plan appears to be to dismantle the coronavirus task force because they are “undermining” Trump’s plan to bring the economy back to normality.
“It is imperative that President Donald Trump is not undermined in his mission to return our economy to greatness,” Biggs said in a statement issued by his office. “Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx continue to contradict many of President Trump’s stated goals and actions for returning to normalcy.”
“This is causing panic that compromises our economic recovery,” he added.
“It’s time for the COVID-19 task force to the disbanded so that President Trump’s message is not mitigated or distorted,” Biggs concluded.
NEW: GOP Rep Andy Biggs of Ariz. says after today's employment report it is "impreative" that Trump "not be undermined in his mission to return our economy to greatness."
