Trump's New COVID Plan: Save Seniors, Let Everyone Else Fend for Themselves
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast / Photos GettyAfter eight months and more than 220,000 lives lost, the Trump White House has settled on a new plan for dealing with the coronavirus pandemic: saving the most vulnerable, namely those in nursing homes, and hoping the rest can largely fend for themselves for the time being.

Multiple senior officials say the White House has worked for weeks to iron out what is, in essence, a triage approach to handling the coronavirus. It is a strategy that emphasizes providing more resources and funding to nursing homes battling COVID-19 outbreaks, while offering no new suggestions for containing the spread of the virus, save focusing on ensuring an effective vaccine distribution plan once one becomes available for the American public.

The triage strategy comes as states are struggling with an increase in the number of cases and hospitalizations among all populations nationwide and with the possibility that flu season could make matters worse. Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, has been on the road for the last several months working with local communities on how to manage community spread. But, outside of that, the White House does not plan to change co

Mark Meadows Might Be the Second Most ‘Reckless' Man in the White House
Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyWhite House chief of staff Mark Meadows was hopping mad.

And, as usual, he was not wearing a mask as he furiously dressed down CBS News White House correspondent Paula Reid—invading her personal space, raising his voice and spraying aerosol particles at high velocity—because he didn't like the sharp questions she had just asked him during a press gaggle in the West Wing driveway.

The chief of staff's too-close encounter with a hard-hitting journalist this past July was typical of what several White House correspondents describe as his cavalier and dangerous attitude—parroting that of his boss, COVID-19 survivor President Donald Trump—that is still blithely exposing not only reporters but also an increasing number of infected White House staffers to the potentially lethal coronavirus.

As coronavirus cases surge, Trump has another message
While the U.S. sets new daily records for Covid-19 cases, Trump is betting voters care more about the economy and loosening restrictions than controlling the virus.

Trump Final Campaign Push Is to Kill His Own Supporters
**Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Getty** Donald Trump doesn't care who gets sick or dies from COVID-19—even if it's his own supporters. That's the harsh reality of where we find ourselves as a nation as Trump holds superspreader campaign rallies and continues to intentionally—and I believe criminally—mislead Americans about this deadly virus because he believes this helps him politically.

When Trump resumed his campaign rallies on Sept. 8—after a summer hiatus because of the July COVID spike—our nation averaged approximately 36,000 new COVID cases per day. Over the past week, we've averaged a whopping 69,814 new cases per day. There's a straight line between Trump's rallies and this spike, with studies showing increases in areas where he held rallies and as he's signaled to his supporters that mask-wearing and social distancing are signs of weakness.

Now, Trump has hit a new low with his desperate closing argument that COVID is not so much a health risk but an

While President Trump's chief of staff on Monday attempted to clarify the assertion that the United States is "not going to control" the coronavirus crisis, the president himself complained that the media is too focused on the pandemic.
