President Donald Trump looks on as White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx delivers remarks during a coronavirus update briefing

In an interview to be broadcast this Sunday, Dr. Deborah Birx, one of the key figures on Donald Trump's task force devoted to fighting COVID-19 admitted it was always on her mind to quit but she stuck around because the country needed her.

Speaking to CBS, she claimed, " "I had to ask myself every morning: is there something that I think I can do that would be helpful in responding to this pandemic? And it's something I asked myself every night."

"And when it became a point where I wasn't getting anywhere and that was like right before the election, I wrote a very detailed communication plan of what needed to happen the day after the election and how that needed to be executed. And there was a lot of promise that that would happen," she added.
