White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested Sunday heads may roll at the FDA, where some staffers have came under harsh criticism by President Donald Trump.
In an interview at ABC News’ “This Week,” Meadows implied heads may roll at the Food and Drug Administration, where Trump alleged some staffers were trying to sabotage his re-election campaign by slowing down research on coronavirus treatments.
“We’ve looked at a number of people that are not being as diligent as they should be,” Meadows said, adding the administration intends to convey a greater sense of "urgency" on the issue of treatments for COVID-19.
"This president is about cutting red tape,” he added.
“If they don't see the light, they need to feel the heat because the American people are suffering, this president knows it, and he's going to put it on wherever -- the FDA or [National Institutes of Health] or anybody else to make sure that we deliver on behalf of the American people,” he said.
Meadows also criticized a House bill to restore money to the U.S. Postal Service, saying it doesn’t target the beleaguered service “long term.”
"If we agree on five or six things, let's go ahead and pass those,” he said of any effort to bolster the USPS.
“Why did you not do it yesterday? But let's go ahead and pass it. I spoke to the president early this morning, he's willing to sign that, including postal service reform."
