ABC’s George Stephanopoulos pressed Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield over President Donald Trump criticizing the agency’s coronavirus pandemic recommendations.
On Good Morning America, Stephanopoulos asked about Trump’s derision for CDC guidelines for reopening schools, as well as Vice President Mike Pence’s statement that the agency is making revisions “because the president thinks they are too tough.”
“Should the doctors and scientists at the CDC be taking that kind of political direction from the president?” Stephanopoulos asked.
Redfield said the CDC would provide “reference documents” to advise schools on safely reopening, adding “it’s not a revision of the guidelines. It’s just to provide additional information to help the schools be able to use the guidance that we put forward.”
“The vice president said it was a revision and doing it at the president’s direction,” Stephanopoulos countered. “Which guidelines are too tough? Which guidelines are impractical?”
