President Trump’s senior adviser, Jared Kushner, told Fox News ‘The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton’ on Sunday that politicians find it “absolutely disgusting” to try to use coronovirus to score political points in an election year.

Kushner, who is also Trump’s son-in-law, pointed to the anniversary of the recent 9/11 attacks and recalled how – in the immediate aftermath – Americans “did not politicize that crisis.”

“But they can’t stop the virus,” Sullivan said of the restrictions. “his [Biden’s] The whole point was that, the only way to bring the virus under control is for the President to do his work at home and do his work where the virus was running. ”
