Biden named his coronavirus task force after a number of major media outlets declared him the winner of the 2020 presidential election. President Donald Trump is continuing to litigate the election in court over instances of voter fraud that his campaign argues may have influenced the outcome of the election.
Emanuel was one of a dozen health experts that Biden named to his task force to advise him on how to handle the pandemic. Emanuel worked as an adviser for COVID-19 RECoVERY Consulting, a firm that provides guidance to businesses on how to navigate pandemic regulations as elected leaders begin lifting strict lockdown measures, according to the Washington Examiner.
In September, Alex Berenson, a former reporter for The New York Times and vocal critic of lockdown policies, appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and accused Emanuel of profiting off the policies he advocated for that played a significant role in forcing millions of Americans out of jobs and closing thousands of businesses. During the lockdown, the United States hit its highest level of unemployment since the Great Depression.
