Thursday, 17 September 2020_White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has told CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins to "come work here at the White House," after she pressed her to share details of the administration's healthcare plan.

McEnany tells CNN reporter to 'come work at the White House' to know about healthcare planUS President Donald Trump has been promising for months to unveil a health care plan amid the poor response to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Here at the White House, we have a wide array of people working on it. There have been elements of it that have already come out," McEnany said, citing executive orders this year on telemedicine and drug pricing. "There’s more that will be forthcoming."

Trump has been bragging about a vague comprehensive plan as criticism mounts on his administration's handling of the pandemic.

The White House press secretary claimed that the "domestic policy council and others are working on a health care plan."

Pressed by the CNN reporter to divulge more details, McEnany said she should take a job there to learn more.

"I’m not going to give you a readout of what our health care plan looks like and who’s working on it," she said. "If you want to know, come work here at the White House."

At a news conference meanwhile, Trump broke with one of his top health officials before reporters, saying Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Robert Redfield made a “mistake” when he said the coronavirus vaccine would not be available until at least mid-2021.

“I think he made a mistake when he said that. It’s just incorrect information,” the president said. “That is incorrect information.”
