HHS Secretary Ignores Reporters’ Coronavirus Questions, Gloats About Trump’s ‘Unbelievable’ Economy Instead

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar had no plan on updating reporters about the COVID-19 coronavirus on Monday. Instead, Azar took the time to boast Donald Trump’s “unbelievable” economy.

In a statement made in the White House driveway, Azar spoke about the economy instead of giving an update on the novel coronavirus.

“President Trump has delivered a historically strong economy,” Azar said. “The fundamentals in this economy are unbelievable. Whether it’s employment or wage growth or productivity or international trade deals, the fundamentals remain what they are.”

“President Trump is leading a whole of government response with the vice president helping him on the public health issues that we’re facing with the novel coronavirus,” he added. “That is his number once concern. In terms of the economy, he and his economic team have the tools to keep this economy going strong.”

Azar then walked off without answering reporters’ questions about the virus.

“I’ll see you all later today, I’m sure,” he said.

Take a look at his remarks in the video clip below:
