Pence's former top aide says Trump called the coronavirus 'a good thing' because he didn't like

Pence's former top aide says Trump called the coronavirus 'a good thing' because he didn't like shaking hands with 'disgusting' supporters.

Olivia Troye, who until recently served as Vice President Mike Pence's top coronavirus task force adviser, slammed President Donald Trump's pandemic response in an interview with The Washington Post and in a new video for the group Republicans Voters Against Trump.

In the video, Troye describes a COVID-19 task force meeting in which she says the president remarked that the pandemic might be a "good thing" because it prevented him from having to shake hands with "disgusting people." Troye said the president was referring to his supporters.

"When we were in a task-force meeting, the president said, 'Maybe this COVID thing is a good thing I don't like shaking hands with people. I don't have to shake hands with these disgusting people,'" Troye says in the two-minute video. "Those disgusting people are the same people he claims to care about. These are the people who are still going to his rallies today, who have complete faith in who he is."

If I ever have the chance to shake hands with trump, I'd spit in my hand first.

1. Even before covid he only wanted them for an audience to cheer him on

but he rarely got to their level in person to interact with them directly.
