Susan Collins Goes After Trump Over COVID-19 Response: ‘Step Back’


Susan Collins Goes After Trump Over COVID-19 Response: ‘Step Back’

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who is in danger of losing her Senate seat this fall, is not pleased with the way Donald Trump has handled the coronavirus pandemic.

According to The Bangor Daily News, Collins claimed that Trump should “step back” from being the public face of the pandemic and let medical professionals like Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, take the lead.

“It is very important that health professionals be out front and that there be a consistent message,” she said.

Collins also called out the administration for being ill-prepared to handle the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

“Testing should be more available than it is,” she said. “That was an issue that many of us raised yesterday at the federal briefing and we did not get a satisfactory response.”
