A former aide to Vice President Pence will vote for Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the November election because of President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new ad from an anti-Trump group of Republicans.

Olivia Troye, who served as Pence’s Homeland Security adviser and an adviser to the White House coronavirus task force, said in an ad released Thursday from Republican Voters Against Trump that Trump failed to keep Americans safe.

“If the president had taken this virus seriously, or if he had actually made an effort to tell how serious it was, he would have slowed the virus spread, he would have saved lives,” Troye said in the ad.

Troye claimed that the president said during one coronavirus task force meeting that the virus may be a “good thing” because he would no longer have to shake hands with “these disgusting people.”
