On Thursday, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona) demanded that the White House dismiss its coronavirus task force.

In his statement, Biggs claimed that the administration’s top health advisers, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, are constantly contradicting each other and that mitigates President Donald Trump‘s messages to the public.

“Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx continue to contradict many of President Trump’s stated goals and actions for returning to normalcy as we know more about the COVID-19 outbreak,” Biggs said in his statement. “This is causing panic that compromises our economic recovery. We can protect our most vulnerable from the COVID-19 outbreak while still protecting lives and livelihoods of the rest of the population. It’s time for the COVID-19 task force to be disbanded so that President Trump’s message is not mitigated or distorted.”

Biggs claimed that thanks to the government’s effort to end the pandemic, the economy is ready to go back to normal. The GOP lawmaker further suggested that it’s time to trust the president to bring back America to prosperity.
