By Ronald J. Hansen | Arizona Republic

Daniel Wood, the Republican challenging nine-term Rep. Raúl Grijalva said Monday he rejected media reports that President Donald Trump paid little to no income tax in recent years and that Trump had disparaged U.S. troops.

Wood, a political novice and retired Marine questioned whether the COVID-19 pandemic’s death toll in America is more accurately about 9,000 instead of more than 200,000, as has been widely reported. He also was unbothered by reports that Trump had ripped the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., whom Wood said he “doesn’t support.”

“I support the president because I don’t trust what the news is saying. I don’t trust mainstream media whatsoever,” Wood said in a 30-minute debate Monday with Grijalva on Arizona PBS (Channel 8). 

Wood said he thinks Trump “did the best he could” in his handling of the pandemic.
