“I don’t like being alone in Washington,” he said, “the shade on the roof in my apartment, alone there, the shade is so long.” He then ran through a series of conspiracy theories, culminating in a prediction that Mr. Trump would win re-election but his Democratic rival, Joseph R. Biden Jr. would refuse to refuse.

Mr. Caputo claimed on his Facebook that the president personally put him in charge of a $ 250 million public service advertising campaign intended to help bring America back to normalcy.
Despite criticism of his team’s interference with the CDC, Mr. Caputo said he hoped to continue in his post because Mr. Trump supported him. “I’m not going anywhere,” he said. “I swear to God, because God is my witness, I am not stopping.”
In his Facebook presentation, Mr. Trump increasingly targeted federal government scientists, complaining without evidence, saying they were deliberately trying to reverse their administration’s efforts to fight the epidemic for their own political reasons .
Echoing those sentiments, Mr. Kaputo said that scientists “have left science deep in the CDC’s bowel and become political animals.”
