"Nightmare Scenario" describes Pence and Birx as having a good working relationship.
Trump, however, "didn't want anyone to exert leadership" on the task force, according to the book.


.............................

In a section of "Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration's Response to the Pandemic That Changed History," Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta described how Dr. Deborah Birx, who became the task force's response coordinator, sought to offer a steady hand when she first joined the group.
.................................

The book noted that the task force's members, which included figures such as Vice President Mike Pence, Health and Human Services secretary Alex Azar, and Housing and Urban Development secretary Ben Carson, lacked "a concrete understanding of the severity of the outbreak."


Birx's impact was immediately felt, with many of its members "desperate for someone besides Azar to take charge," according to the book.


Birx's instinct that the task force had been waiting for an individual with her skills to take the reigns proved to be correct.

The book describes the task force as "a mess" when Birx first arrived, with no individual in charge "in part because that was the way Trump had wanted it."
