Wired federal scientist-whistleblower Dr. Just before President Donald Trump announced Congress on Thursday. Rick Bright criticized that the United States had "lost early warning signs" about coronovirus.

Trump has morning tweeted Thursday, "I Rick Bright, do not know the so-called whistleblower, I never knew about them or heard."

But to me he is a disgruntled employee, he does not like or respect the people I have talked to and who, with his attitude, should not work for our government! "Trump said.

Testimony before the Bright Health Chamber's Commerce and Health Subcommittee at 10 am. ET.

In his initial statement, Bright is expected to say that could make highbrow -19 2020 "the deep cold of modern history", if the leader of the outbreak can not mount a more coordinated response to prevent.

Bright's written testimony stated, "Our window of opportunity is closing. If we do not develop a science-based, coordinated national response, I fear the epidemic will worsen, leading to death and death." "

In late April, Bright was removed as director of the Advanced Biomedical Research and Development Authority and transferred to a job with fewer responsibilities at the National Institutes of Health.

Trump has made little mention of drugs since late April. But when asked at a press conference why he stopped promoting them, Trump said: "I haven't done that at all. I haven't done it at all. What do you say? We'll see what happens." .. We have done a lot. Well and we had some results that were probably not so good. "
