A top White House aide admitted Sunday that it’s “scary to go to work” after two administration staffers tested positive for the coronavirus last week.
“I think that I’d be a lot safer if I was sitting at home than I would be going to the West Wing,” Kevin Hassett, a senior adviser to President Trump, told CBS TV’s “Face the Nation.” “But you know, it’s a time when people have to step up and serve their country.”
Last week, the press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence, as well as one of President Trump’s valets, tested positive for the contagion.
“It is scary to go to work” Hassett said. “You know the West Wing, it’s a small, crowded place. it’s a little bit risky, but you have to do it.
“There’s a lot of things that you can’t do except there, like if you’re going to have secure communications.”
He added, “That’s why the doctors are so careful about testing everyone every day.”
