BBC: Top Republican Mitch McConnell avoids White House over Covid-19

https://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2020-54472053


Republican leader Mitch McConnell, 78, on Thursday revealed he had not been to the White House since August because of the way it has handled Covid-19.

The Kentucky senator said he spoke to the president frequently over the phone but had not visited since 6 August.

Mr McConnell, a polio survivor, contrasted the White House with the Senate, where lawmakers are urged to wear masks and social distance.

His comments come as the White House deals with a Covid-19 outbreak.
