The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We’re here today to provide an update on the unprecedented testing capacity developed by the United States — the most advanced and robust testing system anywhere in the world, by far. This afternoon, I’ll also announce new steps that we’re taking to make tests even more widely available.

To battle a virus, my administration marshaled every resource at our nation’s disposal: public, private, military, economic, scientific, and industrial — all at your disposal. We launched the largest manufacturing ramp-up since the Second World War. There’s been nothing like it since.

President Donald Trump’s Remarks in Meeting with Republican Members of Congress

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP: Hi, everybody. Please, sit down. Get things done. Nobody gets it done like we do.

Now, I don’t know — are we letting the media in? Is the media here? I guess we have a limited media because of distancing. And some people think I did that on purpose. But we’ve been getting along with them reasonably well lately.

I just want to thank you all for coming back because you came back. This is a Republican group, largely, if not in all cases. You know, they look pretty Republican. I’m not sure about Devin. Let’s just — you’re a Republican, aren’t you? (Laughter.) No, this is a very, very Republican group. And we appreciate you coming back. Hi, Debbie.

China’s Coronavirus Lies Pile Up

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “A U.S. Department of Homeland Security analysis has concluded that China hid the early spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus so it could hoard medical equipment, keeping it from other countries that would have bought it if they had known of the danger that was coming their way from Wuhan,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes.
 
“Specifically, DHS found, with 95% statistical confidence, that changes to China’s personal protective equipment import and export behavior were highly abnormal and not random.”
