Olivia Troye Trump
Olivia spoke against President Donald Trump in a video released by “Republican Voters Against Trump” saying he “could have saved lives” in his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“When we were in a task force meeting, the president said, ‘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.’ Those disgusting people are the same people that he claims to care about, these are the people still going to his rallies today who have complete faith in who he is. If the president had taken this virus seriously, or if he had actually made an effort to tell how serious it was, he would have slowed the virus spread, he would have saved lives.”
Troye joined the coronavirus task force in late January when it was first established. According to an article by The New Yorker Troye claimed that the President “can’t seem to care about anyone else besides himself.” She alleged that during the crisis Trump was “disruptive” and could not “focus.” She alleged that he was consumed by himself and his prospects in November. “For him, it was all about the election.”
She added that “Trump’s handling of the situation—the conscious spreading of disinformation, the disregard for the task force’s work—had made the crisis far worse for Americans. She warned about the President’s push for a vaccine before the November election and said that she did not trust him to do the right thing for the country’s health and safety. ‘What I’m really concerned about is if they rush this vaccine and pressure people and get something out because they want to save the election.’

Thank you for entrusting me to be your rock during this hard time. I will always be rooting for you knowing that you will continue to fight the good fight.”
