Listen: Trump Touts Stock Market Recovery Over Covid Reaction in Newly Released Woodward Audio

By Colby HallSep 14th, 2020, 1:36 pm

CNN’s Jamie Gangel is not just a well-respected reporter and longtime Beltway insider. She also appears to have a friendly working relationship with Bob Woodward, as she has been at the center of on-the-record audio recordings with President Donald Trump used for the new tell-all Rage. Newly obtained audio dropped at noon on Monday revealed the president remained focused on the stock market index even as the death toll from Covid-19 dramatically grew.


Gangel then introduced another portion of the recording in which Trump claims “nothing could have been done,” and “I acted early.”

Trump then asked Woodward, “So you think the virus totally supersedes the economy?” to which the author replied, “Oh sure. But they’re related, as you know.” Trump agreed with “a little bit,” which appeared to surprise Woodward.

“I mean, more than a little bit, but the economy is doing, look …we are close to a new stock market record.”
