White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said that public health officials should listen to President Donald Trump when he talks about the novel coronavirus, despite the president repeatedly pushing misinformation about the pandemic.
Conway made the remark during an interview with Fox News' America's Newsroom on Thursday morning, in which she was repeatedly pressed to address criticism of Trump sharing inaccurate and false claims about COVID-19 and the U.S. outbreak. Fox News anchor Sandra Smith, pointing out that comments by Trump have gone against the guidance of administration officials Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci, asked if the president is "listening to the advice of health experts that he has at his side?"
"He is and they should be listening to him as well," Conway responded.
