President Donald Trump meets with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Five weeks ago, President Donald Trump sent Vice President MIke Pence to Arizona when the state’s Coronavirus cases began to rise. “We’re going to make sure you have what you need, when you need it, to meet this moment,” the Vice President said in Phoenix.
 
That same week, Arizona began modeling a path forward. President Donald Trump soon visited the state, sent his top healthcare team—including Dr. Deborah Birx—to meet with local hospital leaders, and made sure personal protective equipment and therapeutic treatments were delivered quickly to the Arizonans who needed them.

President Donald Trump just signed an executive order to protect American jobs from foreign labor

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – President Donald Trump took action earlier today to prevent Americans from being displaced by foreign workers and offshore labor using federal dollars.
 
The new executive order combats the misuse of H-1B visas, which too often have been exploited to replace qualified U.S. workers with lower-cost foreign ones. President Trump is directing all federal agencies to focus on hiring Americans for lucrative federal contracts, and it requires that only U.S. citizens be appointed to the government’s competitive service.

Update on Reopening America

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Americans are ready to get back to work. Fewer than 6 percent of Americans tested each week are found to have the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Daily average case rates continue to fall, and all 50 states have begun reopening in a safe and responsible manner.

There Isn’t a Coronavirus “Second Wave”

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “In recent days, the media has taken to sounding the alarm bells over a ‘second wave’ of coronavirus infections. Such panic is overblown,” Vice President Mike Pence writes in The Wall Street Journal.
 
“While talk of an increase in cases dominates cable news coverage, more than half of states are actually seeing cases decline or remain stable . . . The truth is that we’ve made great progress over the past four months, and it’s a testament to the leadership of President Donald Trump.”
