According to reports, Fudge said that the new government is committed to “complete transparency, openness and honesty”, which is quite different from Trump’s White House. “You can talk here about what you know, about evidence, about science, and know that’s what it is – let science speak. It’s a sense of liberation. “
At the briefing, Fudge also mentioned former president trump. He said he was not happy to disagree with trump over the epidemic. “Obviously [trump] said something, whether it’s hydroxychloroquine or something like that, which is really uncomfortable because it’s not based on scientific facts.” “I can tell you that I’m not at all happy to be in opposition to the president,” fudge said
According to reports, Fudge said he met Biden 15 minutes before the briefing and discussed how to make “everything we do is based on science and evidence.” In addition, Psaki, the White House press secretary, said that Mr. Fauci and other public health officials will attend more briefings in the future to talk about the new crown.
