President Donald Trump's campaign press secretary Hogan Gidley, on Wednesday, accused presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden of preferring to "protect China than America" over his promise to return the United States to membership with the World Health Organization if he's elected president.
“They’re the bad actors here," Gidley said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" about the WHO and its relationship with China. "(COVID-19) was created, developed, and came from China. Everyone now knows that and Joe Biden continues to show his true colors here. He’d rather protect China than America."
Gidley had, until recently, been serving as White House deputy press secretary before transitioning to President Donald Trump's reelection campaign.
Meanwhile, show host Brian Kilmeade pushed back after Gidley said Biden "wants to defund the police," pointing out that the former vice president had never said that.
Kilmeade also argued about Gidley's claims that the United States is better off now with Trump than it had been in years past.
Gidley, commenting on the president's upcoming New Hampshire rally, said Trump "wants to go in there and talk about all the accomplishments he’s done in his first term and how he has made people’s lives better. It answers the age-old question: are you better off now than you were before? The answer undoubtedly is yes.”
Kilmeade, however, responded that with the coronavirus pandemic, "the growth is not there" and that unemployment is still at 11 %, so you can’t really say you are better off than you were three years ago, because, at the very least, the pandemic. So you can’t really say that, right?”
“No, absolutely, of course, you can say that,” Gidley responded. "Because listen, this global pandemic hit all of us. Not just here in this country, but all across the world."
Gidley also said that Trump saw the projections that said 2.2 million people were projected dead in America, and because of his "decisions, his leadership, has saved almost 2 million lives in this country. I put that up against anybody."
