A coronavirus task force has a meeting scheduled to take place at the Department of Education this Wednesday, but according to CBS News reporter Paula Reid, Dr. Anthony Fauci says that he was told to participate in the meeting via teleconference and therefore won’t participate in the task force’s press briefing scheduled for later this morning.

In a subsequent tweet, Reid says that the White House appears to be “deliberately excluding” Fauci in light of comments from President Trump where he said he disagrees with Fauci.

On Tuesday, Trump said he disagrees with Fauci regarding the seriousness of the coronavirus outbreak.

“I think we are in a good place,” Trump said in an interview on the Full Court Press news show. “I disagree with him.”

Maddow reveals the ‘shocking sign’ the White House may be betting Trump is going to lose in 2020

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow returned from vacation to host the Tuesday evening edition of her MSNBC show.

Maddow noted, "in 91 days we all get to decide if the guy who's currently in charge of how we're responding to this epidemic should stay in the job for four more years or if Democratic candidate Joe Biden would do better at this."

"And a lot of it is very worrying, in terms of the institutions of our democracy and what we count on to keep us a constitutional republic."

On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that Republicans are exploring the possibility of President Donald Trump giving his presidential re-nomination speech from the South Lawn of the White House.

"The decision to stage the most high-profile political event of Trump’s reelection campaign at the national seat of presidential power would be just the latest break by Trump in presidential norms, which have historically drawn clear lines between official business of the president and campaign events," reported Michael Scherer and Josh Dawsey. "People involved in the planning said that no final decision had been made on the location of the Republican convention’s celebratory events.

On Tuesday, The New York Times editorial board tore into Congress for going on vacation while crucial unemployment benefits and stimulus lapsed for millions of Americans.

"Preventing this widespread suffering should be the top priority for lawmakers," wrote the board. "Instead, the Republican-led Senate dragged its feet for months on another aid package. The Democratic-led House of Representatives passed a $3 trillion relief plan in mid-May. It took until July 27 for the Republican Senate leaders to offer their anemic, $1 trillion counterbid, which everyone seems to have a problem with, albeit for differing reasons."
