(CNN)Former Vice President Al Gore on Thursday offered a grim assessment of the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic, stating pointedly: "I think we're seeing the start of a botched reopening. "

President Donald Trump in recent days has emphasized the need to quickly reopen the American economy despite public health officials' urgings for a more cautious approach.

"And now I think we're in grave danger," Gore told CNN's Anderson Cooper and Sanjay Gupta during CNN's coronavirus global town hall.

"I have to tell you both, I think that we are seeing the start of a botched reopening.

And what I mean by that is, you know, a couple of months ago he said one day it's just going to magically disappear.

A senior official at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed to CNN that the Trump administration will not implement the CDC's 17-page draft recommendation for reopening America.

I think we want to go back to where it was," Trump said at a meeting with representatives from the restaurant and hospitality industries.

"I want to go back to where it was, that's where we're going to be," Trump said.

Gore, who recently endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for President, said Thursday that moving forward, Trump needs to become "a watchman on the tower, looking for danger then responding to it. "
