Top Republicans are concerned that President Donald Trump is hurting his reelection chances with rally-like performances at the daily White House press briefings on coronavirus, the New York Times reported on Thursday, and are urging him to step back and let medical experts take the helm.

Senate Majority Mitch McConnell in the early days of the coronavirus crisis privately encouraged Trump to let Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx — the leading medical experts on the White House coronavirus task force — to spearhead the daily briefings, according to The Times.
