Birx Reveals White House Covid Advisors Had a Pact to Quit En Masse if Trump Fired One of Them

Former Trump White House Covid adviser Deborah Birx said on Sunday that were any member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force fired, she and her fellow members would quit en masse.

“If any one of the individuals were under so much pressure and they were fired that we would all leave together from the task force,” she said on Good Morning America on Monday. “And I think that was really important because I really wanted to protect [then-CDC Director] Bob Redfield and [then-FDA Commissioner] Steve Hahn and they were under enormous pressure.”

Birx recounted the moment she was sitting a few feet away from then-President Donald Trump in April 2020 when he suggested injecting a disinfectant to treat Covid. She called that moment “a tragedy on many levels.”

The former White House Covid adviser recalled that the administration asked scientists at the Department of Homeland Security to look at disinfectants, which “we knew it had an impact on Covid on the surfaces,” compared “to sunlight because we knew sunlight had oxidated potential.” Birx remarked that this study could’ve possibly encouraged parents to take their children outside to play as playgrounds, like in New York City, were shut because of the pandemic.

Birx said she was taken by surprise by what she called “a potential therapeutic.” After Trump’s remarks, Birx recalled, she went to senior administration officials and said those comments needed “to be reversed” – which Trump did the following day.
