Birx: “I didn’t see it coming”

There was a stark admission during Tuesday’s Task Force press conference.

Trying to tar President Trump, a reporter asked Dr. Deborah Birx why the administration initially downplayed the potential severity of COVID-19.

Hmm.

Isn’t that what Trump was saying in early January?

I wonder where he got his info … the medical community, maybe?
