Trump calls Dr Rick Bright a "disgruntled employee"

In a tweet on Thursday, Trump calls Dr Rick Bright, former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, a "disgruntled employee". Trump states that he had never met or heard about Bright and that Bright was neither liked or respected by people who he spoke to.

Bright had a filed a whistleblower complaint after he was removed from his position earlier this year. In an interview, Bright told the New York Times, “I am speaking out because to combat this deadly virus, science — not politics or cronyism — has to lead the way".
