President Donald Trump began his address to the nation by saying that the “foreign virus” is being handled by the “best” people.
“This is the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history,” he said.
He announced that the country was saved by blocking Chinese travel into the United States. The only reason the virus spread more in the United States, he said, is because European travels.
However, Trump said that it would not apply to the United Kingdom, but didn’t explain why.
Trump said that he would prevent “surprise billing” from insurance and that his people are helping create the anti-viral medication needed to save lives.
“The risk is very very low,” he said, promising people that were young would be fine.
He said that he would consider action to help fund people who can’t work due to the virus.
“The virus will not have a chance against us,” he promised.
“We’re having to fix a problem that four weeks ago nobody ever thought would be a problem,” he also said. The first case was reported in the United States 7 weeks ago.

They’ve been working around-the-clock.”Yet a document circulated among officials at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency this week shows that state ...
