President Donald Trump Press Briefing Remarks on COVID-19 Testing

 

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.

Democrats Need to Stop Holding Small-Business Help Hostage

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “It’s beyond tragic: The loan program to aid small businesses hit by lockdowns is almost out of cash, yet Democrats still refuse to OK new funds unless their unrelated demands are met,” the New York Post editorial board writes.
