White House chief of staff Mark Meadows appeared on “This Week” and argued that President Trump has ”accomplished more in his first 100 days than Joe Biden did in the last 40 years.”
Meadows argued: “Joe Biden has barely passed two bills, one of which he’s trying to run away from because of the left.”
Reacting to Biden’s DNC speech, Meadows commented ”You couldn’t have watched any of that without considering it dark.”
Addressing accusations made from a leaked tape of Trump’s sister, Meadows said “a number of the accusations that are being made I’ve been able to witness up close and personal and they’re just not true.”
He added “The president is not only well-prepared but reads so much that it causes me to have to read many times well into the night to catch up with him.”
In the interview, Meadows was pressed on Trump’s tweet Saturday alleging that “The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics,” and claiming the process was being delayed until after the election.
“What evidence does the president have that the FDA is manipulating this process, this approval process, for political reasons?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“This president is about cutting red tape. That’s what the tweet was all about,” the chief of staff said, after first refuting that anything was being “manipulated.”
“He had to make sure that they felt the heat. If they don’t see the light, they need to feel the heat because the American people are suffering, this president knows it, and he’s going to put it on wherever — the FDA or NIH or anybody else to make sure that we deliver on behalf of the American people.”
