The results of the survey come just a day after Trump contended with heavy criticism for retweeting messages by conservative former game show host Chuck Woolery, who has accused public health experts of lying about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic.

President Trump’s retweets come after he claimed that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading coronavirus expert, had been “wrong” more than once. He has pushed for schools to reopen despite concerns that doing so could intensify the coronavirus pandemic. The president said he disagrees with CDC guidelines on reopening schools, calling them “tough and expensive.”
