President Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic showed a "flat out disregard for human life" because his "main concern was the economy and his reelection," according to a senior adviser on the White House coronavirus task force who left the White House in August.

"The president's rhetoric and his own attacks against people in his administration trying to do the work, as well as the promulgation of false narratives and incorrect information of the virus have made this ongoing response a failure," she said in an interview.

"Towards the middle of February, we knew it wasn't a matter of if Covid would become a big pandemic here, it was a matter of when," said Troye, who left the White House in late July. "But the President didn't want to hear that, because his biggest concern was that we were in an election year, and how was this going to affect what he considered to be his record of success?"

At one coronavirus task force meeting, Troye claimed that Trump suggested "maybe this Covid thing is a good thing."

"I don't like shaking hands with people. I don't have to shake hands with these disgusting people," Troye claimed Trump said at the meeting."

On CNN Thursday, speaking to CNN's Wolf Blitzer, former Trump Homeland Security chief of staff Miles Taylor weighed in on the Biden endorsement from Vice President Mike Pence's national security aide Olivia Troye.

"I'll tell you this, this is an absolute bombshell," said Taylor, himself a supporter of Biden.

"You think we're going to be hearing from more Trump officials who, like you and Olivia, are going to be coming out and saying they can't support President Trump for re-election?" asked Blitzer.

"You will, Wolf," said Taylor. "Today we launched something called Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform. The acronym is RePAIR. It's focused on repairing the Republican Party post-Trump and repairing the country from the damage he's done. I'm proud to announce today this is the largest group of ex-Trump officials that have come out against the president. In addition to Olivia joining RePAIR, we had Josh Venable join us. He was Betsy DeVos' chief of staff at the Department of Education. I'm hoping you'll hear from them and other advisers in RePAIR in the very near future about what we need to fix from the Donald Trump presidency and how we get back on track."

Trumpers are going to call her a traitor, brand everything she says to be fake news, threaten her life, and double down on their determination to vote for Trump.

Harsh words from one who was an eyewitness. I hope that before her statement on what she saw that she closed all of her social media accounts, got a new phone, phone number, email address and place of residency. Even with all of that, she is probably being hassled right now by resentful, unemployed and unemployable knobs with time on their hands...

Frum last night made the same point. She will be experiencing naked hatred for many years, and has meaningfully sacrificed lifetime advantage because she took a stand and told the truth.

Comes a point in time where Trump supporters - and some have - need to understand that the guy is really a creep (and over his head) behind closed doors.

These people who have come out - want to work for government and try to do the right thing. They want to be part of what they believe is the solution. But they seem how Trump operates.

It's not a plot against Trump. The guy just sucks.
