President Donald Trump's allies on Sunday blamed anybody but him for his handling of the deadly virus that has killed more than 193,000 Americans.

In interviews across the morning political talk shows, Trump officials portrayed the president as a calm leader throughout the pandemic and singled out China, corporate media — including CNN and Jake Tapper, specifically — and Democrats for what they asserted was lying and politicizing the coronavirus.

The head of the Republican National Committee and Trump advisers were asked about last week's revelation that the president told The Washington Post's Bob Woodward in February and March that the virus was deadlier than the flu and that he downplayed it publicly to avoid causing panic — something Trump continued to do well after his Woodward interviews.
