Ex-Pence adviser on coronavirus endorses Biden in blistering ad
Olivia Troye, a former adviser to Vice President Mike Pence who was his lead staffer on the coronavirus task force, is endorsing Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president. In an advertisement recorded for Republican Voters Against Trump, Troye slammed President Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Troye, a lifelong Republican, said Mr. Trump’s “biggest concern” was how the pandemic would affect the election.
“It was shocking to see the president saying that the virus was a hoax, saying that everything’s OK when we know that’s not,” Troye said. She added that Mr. Trump “actually doesn’t care about anyone else but himself,” and gave an example of a time when the president said during a task force meeting that “maybe this COVID thing is a good thing.”
