We’re a little more than a week until Election Day.
As voters head to the polls, it’s hard to fathom that the pandemic isn’t at the top of most their minds. We’re creeping up on 8.5 million cases and had more than 220,000 deaths due to the virus in the United States, the most of any country in the world.
And with Election Day so close, given some rather odd comments from White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Sunday, some are wondering if they White House is waving the white flag of surrender.
On CNN’s State of the Union, Meadows told Jake Tapper that administration “isn’t going to control the pandemic.”
He then goes on to say that what we need are proper mitigation efforts. Meadows says all of this as President Trump continues traveling across the country holding rallies with little mask wearing and next to no social distancing.
Pence also continues to travel across the country campaign after five people in his inner circle came down with the virus.
