Trump calls Alex Rodriguez for Covid-19 advice, not former Presidents

Trump reportedly called former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez to ask for his thoughts on handling the coronavirus outbreak

President Donald Trump called the former baseball player Alex Rodriguez for his thoughts on the administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak, ABC News reported Friday evening.

The call was reportedly part of a number of calls Trump made this week regarding the virus and its impact on the country.
Rodriguez is not a medical or public health expert.

Trump has contradicted public health experts in statements on how to limit the spread of the coronavirus and ease the burden on the healthcare system.

President Donald Trump said Sunday that as he tackles the current national crisis, he doesn’t want to “bother” his predecessors and doesn’t think he’s “going to learn much” from them.

In response to a reporter’s question on whether he would reach out to any former presidents (George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama or Jimmy Carter), Trump implied that wasn’t in the cards.

3. He's right in saying he wouldn't learn much.

He never has and never will.
