WH: Trump never lied to US people about COVID

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany (pictured) claimed on Wednesday that US President Donald Trump "has never lied to the American public about COVID-19," denying The Washington Post editor Bob Woodward's claims on the president's alleged downplaying the seriousness of the outbreak.

Speaking at a press briefing in the White House, McEnany stressed that "the president never downplayed the virus," adding he was "expressing calm" and acted responsibly when it comes to the country's efforts to contain the pandemic.

Earlier today, multiple media outlets reported that Woodward said in his book named "Rage" that Trump admitted he "likes playing it [coronavirus] down" as he "didn't want to create a panic."
