Donald Trump wimps out of press briefing for the second day in a row

Published

on

For the second day in a row, President Donald Trump will not be holding a coronavirus press briefing as he has done for the past month.

This past week, Trump suggested that the COVID-19 taskforce look into injecting disinfectant like Lysol into their body to cure the virus.

“I see the disinfectant — where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?” Trump said, while looking at the doctors. The following day, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany issued a statement saying Trump’s words had been taken “out of context.”

When Trump was asked about his disinfectant claims on Friday, he told reporters that he was asking the question “sarcastically” — “just to see what would happen.”

“The White House just called a travel photo lid so, for the second day in a row, no coronavirus task force briefing,” the White House correspondent Monica Alba for NBC. “The one Friday was the shortest to date, and the president didn’t take any questions there. Will be interesting to see if one is added for tomorrow.”

Trump’s policies could come back to haunt him as he struggles to save his presidency from COVID-19: columnist

Published

on

In a column for Washington Monthly, Annie Kim suggested that Donald Trump will likely be handcuffed by his own economic policies as he attempts to deal with the collapse of the U.S. economy in large part due to the coronavirus pandemic that raged out of control on his watch.

With close to 40 million Americans now unemployed and the president's administration pumping trillions into the economy to keep the country afloat as businesses shutter, Kim suggested that Trump is in a major bind of his own making that could cost him re-election.
