Woodward: Trump's take on virus leadership failure

Journalist Bob Woodward (pictured) described on Wednesday United States President Donald Trump's approach to the coronavirus pandemic a "monumental, catastrophic leadership failure" amid the new surges in daily infections in the country.

"If he’d been honest and shared the truth in some form, we would be in a completely different position now," he told MSNBC. "I think it's one of the most historic moments in the Oval Office when a crisis is laid out, and the president doesn't level with the American people."

Earlier this week, Woodward released Rage, a book about Trump's presidency, in which he accused the president of downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic. His claims were later denied by the White House, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Trump himself.
