Trump spoke before the daily briefing of the COVID task force presser.at 630pm ET. More time was spent changing the podium seal from the VPOTUS to that of IMPOTUS* than Trump’s remarks.

Trump announces payroll tax cut to be discussed with GOP leadership.

Trump lies about being the first to shut borders. “We want people to travel”. 

Claims to be doing things more thoroughly than as reported. Conference call with 47 Governors.

Pence claims “dramatic increase in testing”, says there will be home safety advice available (recall the tarps and duct tape of 9/11). News on quarantine of Grand Princess in Oakland CA, claiming that all passengers will be tested. Pence argle-bargles trying to “America First” the suggestion that Trump said people should go to work even if sick.

Trump speaks again shortly only to flee without answering questions. Pence claims he doesn’t know whether Trump was tested.

“Trump's Katrina” continues as he contradicts official reports that COVID-19 community transmission becomes more crucial as Trump has been reported to have shaken hands with two GOP members of Congress Matt Gaetz and Doug Collins. There are 670 COVID-19 cases, 4300 people tested, and 26 deaths.
