Biden polled at 53 percent to Trump’s 47 percent, a reversal from the March survey, when Trump narrowly led Biden.
Washington, 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.
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Well, thank you very much. Please.
This afternoon, I’ll sign a proclamation declaring the month of May to be Older Americans Month. I don’t know if I’m in that category. I have a feeling I am. But I feel good. And our country is making a lot of progress, Alex — I want to tell you that. Making a lot of progress.
As we honor the incredible contributions of our nation’s seniors, we are here today to discuss the unprecedented steps we that we’re taking to protect them from the virus.
Washington, D.C. – President Donald Trump: Thank you very much. Good afternoon. We continue to see a number of positive signs that the virus has passed its peak. It’s been very devastating all over the world. A hundred and eighty-four countries. Probably more. That number was as of a week ago.
Dr. Birx will walk through some of these trends in a few moments, but they’re very positive trends for winning. Going to win. We’re going to close it out.
Washington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT Donald Trump: Well, thank you all very much. This is a very important day. I’ll sign the single-biggest economic relief package in American history and, I must say, or any other package, by the way. It’s twice as large as any relief ever signed.
It’s $2.2 billion, but it actually goes up to 6.2 — potentially — billion dollars — trillion dollars. So you’re talking about 6.2 trillion-dollar bill. Nothing like that. And this will deliver urgently needed relief to our nation’s families, workers, and businesses. And that’s what this is all about.
Washington, D.C. – President Donald Trump is marshaling every resource at America’s disposal to fight against the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. He’s grateful to our nation’s local leaders, doctors, nurses, law enforcement, and first responders who are waging this battle on the ground.
President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Members of the Coronavirus Task Force Press Briefing Remarks
Washington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much. I think this is going to be a very important conference and I’ll get to that toward the middle, but I have a few things to report. And I want to thank you all for being here.
And I have to say, I think with social distancing that the media has been much nicer. I don’t know what it is — all these empty — these in-between chairs. We probably shouldn’t have anybody sitting behind you either. You know, you should probably go back. But I love it. It’s so much nicer. But I shouldn’t say that because you’ll get me now.

President Donald Trump
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much. I would like to begin by announcing some important developments in our war against the Chinese virus.
We’ll be invoking the Defense Production Act, just in case we need it. In other words, I think you all know what it is, and it can do a lot of good things if we need it. And we will — we will have it all completed, signing it in just a little while. Right after I’m finished with this conference, I’ll be signing it. It’s prepared to go. So we will be invoking the Defense Production Act.
Lamar Alexander says Trump Administration, State and Local Health Systems Doing Their Job to Help Protect Americans Against Coronavirus
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said the Trump Administration and state and local health systems are “doing their job” to protect Americans against the coronavirus – a viral disease that was first detected in Wuhan, China – and asked U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar about specific steps the Administration is taking to help control this public health threat.
“Looking around the world, there is reason to be alarmed. Ten days ago, for example, there were over 49,000 confirmed cases [of coronavirus] in the world,” stated Senator Alexander.
Washington, D.C. – “The impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump is coming down to one big question: Will Democrats, by crying wolf, drown out the more legitimate Republican cry of foul? ‘Foul’ has served as the GOP’s most powerful and honest argument from the first days of these impeachment maneuverings,” Kimberly Strassel writes in The Wall Street Journal.
