Jared Kushner bragged about Donald Trump “getting the country back from the doctors” in an April interview with journalist Bob Woodward, a report says.

The senior White House advisor boasted that the president was ignoring scientists and medical experts as the coronavirus pandemic unfolded, according to audio obtained by CNN.

In a taped interview with the famed journalist on April 18, Mr Kushner claimed that US was moving past the "panic phase" and "pain phase" of the pandemic and was at the "beginning of the comeback phase.”

There have now been more than 232,000 deaths from Covid-19 and the country has passed nine million positive cases.
