Therefore, he neglected to inform people about COVID for the sake of his own re-election, which is outright treasonous to the American people whom he is supposed to be serving.
Treason is defined as helping an enemy, so it’s only treason if you buy the idea that this was an attack by China, and hold Trump accountable for helping them do it.

Downplaying a natural disaster and discouraging people and states from life-saving precautions is disgusting, but it’s not treason.
Fair enough.

Trump officials interfered with CDC reports on Covid-19
https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/1 ... -19-412809
The health department’s politically appointed communications aides have demanded the right to review and seek changes to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s weekly scientific reports charting the progress of the coronavirus pandemic, in what officials characterized as an attempt to intimidate the reports’ authors and water down their communications to health professionals.

In some cases, emails from communications aides to CDC Director Robert Redfield and other senior officials openly complained that the agency’s reports would undermine President Donald Trump's optimistic messages about the outbreak, according to emails reviewed by POLITICO and three people familiar with the situation.
