3/25/20: Members of the Coronavirus Task Force Hold a Press Briefing

The President:
Thank you very much. So, nice to be with you. America continues to gain
ground in the war against the virus. I want to thank the
American people for answering the call,
following our guidelines, and making the sacrifices
required to overcome this terrible threat. More aggressively
we commit to social distancing —
so important. Social distancing — such
an important phrase. And we do it right now. The more lives we can save
and the sooner we can eventually get people back
to work, back to school, and back to normal. And there are large
sections of our country — probably can go back
much sooner than other sections. And we’re obviously
looking at that also. People are asking, “Is
that an alternative?” And I say, “Absolutely,
it is an alternative.” I have now approved major
disaster declarations for New York, California,
Washington, Iowa, Louisiana, Texas,
and Florida. That has great
significance, as you know, and legal significance. We’re in a constant
grouping, and I can say this: We have a large
grouping of people that does nothing but
communicate with the various officials,
including we’ve been spending a lot of time
with New York officials because that really is,
by far, the hottest spot. They’ve got a number of
very tough weeks ahead of them. The governor is doing
a very good job. I spoke to the governor
— Governor Cuomo — last night and this morning,
and he mentioned that, in his remarks, that he’s
using the — that we are using — and I think
he feels, because he understands negotiation —
he thinks we’re using very appropriately the
Defense Production Act. And we are. We’re using it
where needed. It’s a great point of
leverage; it’s a great negotiating tool. But I’ve really — I
will tell you, there’s tremendous spirit from
people and tremendous spirit with respect
to these companies. And I don’t have to use
it very much at all. They want to do it. As you know, General
Motors is involved; Ford is involved; 3M is
involved; others are involved. And they’re all working
very hard to produce product — different —
all different products. We had very little
product when we came. We built it up, and we’ve
— we give it away as fast as we can to the
different states. We’re also, as you
know, building numerous hospitals and medical
centers throughout certain areas in New York. It’s at the convention
center, the Javits Convention Center. We’re doing four hospitals
and we’re doing, throughout the state,
four medical centers. They’re somewhat
different. I want you to know that
I’m doing everything in my power to help the city
pull through this challenge. I’m working very
hard on New York. It’s really, by far,
our biggest problem. Maybe it will be;
maybe it won’t be. But there’s a lot of good,
capable people working on it with us, and our teams
are working very well with the state representatives. We’re also doing some very
large testings throughout the country. I told you yesterday that,
in South Korea — and this is not a knock in any way
because I just spoke with President Moon; we had a
very good conversation about numerous other
things — but they’ve done a very good job on
testing, but we now are doing more testing
that anybody, by far. We do more in eight days
than they do in eight weeks. And we go up, on a daily
basis, exponentially. So, it’s really good. By the way, while I’m on
it, I also spoke with Prime Minister Abe of
Japan last night, and I congratulated him
on a wise choice. I think it’s going to be
a fantastic Olympics — 2021. I think it’s going to
be a fantastic Olympics. It was the absolute right
decision to delay it for a full year and now have a
full, beautiful Olympics. It’s going to be very
important because it’s probably the first time,
maybe ever, or certainly in a long time, that
it was on a odd year. It always on an even
year, they tell me. But he’s going to have a
fantastic success, and now they’ll have
even more time. He didn’t need
any more time. Everything was
perfectly ready. What a job they’ve done. But Japan — I want to
congratulate Japan, the IOC, and Prime Minister
Abe on a great decision. I think it’s going to
be a fantastic Olympics. I told him I’ll be there. I’ll be there. As we fight to protect
American lives, we’re also protecting American
livelihoods. Democrats and Republicans
in the Senate are very close to passing an
emergency relief bill for American workers,
families, and businesses. This legislation, in
addition to the two bills I signed this month that
includes, as you know, sick leave, and we have
all sorts of things in for the workers, for families. But we have a tremendous
paid sick leave provision for workers at no cost
at all to the employers. And that’s a big thing:
no cost to the employers. We want to get everybody
back, working. Together, this $2.2
trillion legislative package is bigger than
anything, I believe, ever passed in Congress. Perhaps, relatively
speaking, if you go back — look during the FDR New
Deal days — there was something that if you
time-value it, you could say it was bigger. I don’t know. But this is certainly, in
terms of dollars, by far and away the biggest
ever, ever done. And that’s a tremendous
thing because a lot of this money goes to jobs,
jobs, jobs, and families, families, families. The Senate bill, as you
know, includes: $350 billion in job retention
loans for small businesses with loan forgiveness
available for businesses that continue paying
their workers. They continue paying
their workers. That’s what we want: We
want them to keep their workers and pay
their workers. This will help businesses
keep workers in the payroll and allow our
economy to quickly accelerate as soon as
we defeat the virus. $350 billion in direct
cash payments will be available for every
American citizen earning less than
$99,000 per year. That would be $3,400, very
quickly, for the typical family of four. Nothing like that has ever
been done in our country. Up to $250 billion in
expanded unemployment benefits. The average worker who has
lost his or her job will receive 100 percent of
their salary for up to four full months. Unlike normal unemployment
benefits, independent contractors and the
self-employed will be eligible. So you have independent
contractors and self-employed people will
be eligible for this. Over $100 billion to
support the heroic work of our doctors, nurses,
and hospitals. They’ve been incredible. $45 billion for
Disaster Relief Fund. So we are setting up a
fund of $45 billion for disaster relief. That’s more than doubling
the amount available to support my national
emergency and disaster declarations. It’s a doubling up. $27 billion to build up
the Strategic National Stockpile with critical
supplies, including masks, respirators,
pharmaceuticals, and everything you can imagine
— because it was very depleted, like our
military was depleted. Now we have a
brand-new military. Never had a
military like this. We have equipment either
coming or it’s already come. For the most part,
it’s already come. But we have a lot of
things that will soon be coming — planes,
missiles, rockets, lots of things. But the stockpile was very
depleted, like everything else. This will also include
significant funding for the development of
vaccines on top of the $8 billion we approved
several weeks ago. Over $500 billion
in support for the hardest-hit industries,
with a ban on corporate stock buybacks, which is
something I insisted on, and frankly, I tell you,
the Republicans wanted that and the Democrats
wanted that. We want them to use the
money for the companies and the planes, or
whatever they may be helping to get over
this rough patch. And I don’t think it’s
going to end up being such a rough patch. I think it’s going
to, when we open — especially, if we can open
it — the sooner, the better — it’s going to
open up like a rocket ship. I think it’s going to
go very good and very quickly. And you’re going to have
some tough new limits on executive
compensation also. They need the money. They’re going to have to,
sort of, just make things work, because we’re
interested in the workers, the jobs. And we’re interested in
the companies because that’s really what fuels
the workers in those great jobs. And we also have $16
billion in funding for the purchase of personal
protective equipment — you know about that
— such as masks and respirators through
the Strategic National Stockpile. I encourage the House
to pass this vital legislation and send
the bill to my desk for signature. Without delay, I will
sign it immediately. We will have a signing,
and it’ll be a great signing and a great day
for the American worker and for American families
and, frankly, for American companies, some of which
were having the best years they’ve ever had
these last few years. And then, a little bit
less than a month ago, they went into a position
that they haven’t seen because of the hidden
enemy, the virus. Earlier today, I spoke
to leaders of many of America’s amazing
nonprofit organizations. I thanked them for their
unwaving [sic] and unwavering devotion to
American people, to American families,
to our nation. And they have
been fantastic. They’ve been collecting
supplies, distributing food, supporting
healthcare workers, caring for vulnerable
workers and families. I encourage them to
continue to do it. But I’ll tell you, the
nonprofits have been fantastic; they’ve
been great. They’re great
people, actually. I know a lot of them. Finally, I want to provide
a brief update on the critical supplies. Through FEMA, the federal
government has delivered, or is in the process of
shipping 9.4 million N95 respirators — think of
that: 9.4 million — 20 million surgical masks,
and we have others that we think are going to be
delivered pretty quickly. The whole world — you
know, it’s not just us; it’s not just the States. The whole world is trying
to get these things — in competition with
many, many countries. I believe today you broke
the 150 mark for the virus. We have 150 countries —
over 150 countries where you have this virus. And nobody would ever
believe a thing like that’s possible. Nobody could have ever
seen something like this coming, but now we know,
and we know it can happen and happen again. And if it does, somebody
is going to be very well prepared because of what
we’ve learned and how we’ve done. It’s been incredible,
how we’ve done. Remember this: More tests
than anybody, by far. And the news, the
reporters, the media always likes to bring
South Korea — they called me and they told
me, “It’s amazing. Your testing procedures
are amazing.” Plus, we have a test
that’s a very high-level test, and it’s a test
that’s very accurate. 3.1 million face shields,
2.6 million surgical gowns, 14.6 million
gloves, and almost 6,000 ventilators, which go to
the areas of greatest needs. We sent, over the last
day, 4,000 ventilators to New York. And I spoke with the
governor about that; he was happy. I spoke with the mayor
also about that. Mayor de Blasio,
he was very happy. It’s hard not to be happy
with the job we’re doing — that, I can tell you. Throughout this national
emergency, everyday heroes continue to step forward
and demonstrate the extraordinary character of
our nation, including the people behind me. By the way, these
people are amazing. They are amazing people
and they become — I don’t know, maybe I should just
speak for myself, but to me, they’ve
become friends. Maybe they don’t like me. Maybe they don’t;
maybe they do. I don’t know. All I can tell you is
they’re talented people. They work very hard. In Maryland, a 7-year-old
boy used his own birthday money to buy meals for
dozens of senior citizens. In Nevada, a college
student recruited 90 of her friends to help
deliver groceries and supplies to the
most vulnerable. This is happening
all over the country. Thousands and
thousands of instances. I could stand up here all
day and tell you about other things. In Minnesota, hundreds
of medical students have volunteered to provide
childcare for hospital workers, helping to keep
our doctors and nurses on the frontlines,
fighting to save lives. These inspiring Americans
remind us that we all have a role to play in winning
this great national battle. And it’s really a
worldwide battle. We’re dealing with other
nations all the time. The people here are — and
I am a little bit — I take calls from a lot
of people; they’re in trouble. A lot of countries
are in big trouble. So now we will hear from
our great Secretary of the Treasury. He has been working rather
hard, I will tell you. Steve Mnuchin is a — he’s
a fantastic guy and he loves our country, and
he’s been dealing with both sides — Republican
and Democrat. He, sort of, lived over in
that beautiful building. It’s a very
beautiful building. To me, one of the most
beautiful buildings, actually, in the world. And he’s gotten to know
it, Steve, very well. So if we could have a
little update, Steve, it would be fantastic, as to
how we’re doing and what it’s looking like. Thank you. Secretary Mnuchin:
Thank you very much, Mr. President. And first, let me say, I
would like to thank Mitch McConnell for
his leadership. And I’d also like to thank
Chuck Schumer for the enormous bipartisan
support we had on this bill, and the many
senators, both Republicans and Democrats, that work
tirelessly over the last five days on all
the task force. As the President said, I
got to live in the LBJ room for the last five
days, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the
unprecedented response from the Senate to protect
American workers and American business
in this situation. The President has outlined
many of these, but let me just quickly go
through them. Again, small business
retention loans: This will cover roughly 50 percent
of the private payroll in small businesses where
we will immediately make loans that will supply
eight weeks of salaries, as long as they keep
workers employed and overhead. And those loans will be
forgiven at the end of the period, as long as they
keep workers employed. These are SBA loans, but
the Treasury will be issuing new regulations
authorizing almost every single FDIC-insured
bank to make these. I expect, by the end of
next week, we will have a very simple process where
these can be made and dispersed in the same day. So this will be a very
simple system to get money into small-business hands. For companies that don’t
qualify that, we have an economic program of tax
incentives to retain workers. And as the President
said, we have enhanced unemployment insurance for
people that don’t fit into these two programs that
will be administered through the states. We also have economic
impact payments. These will be, within the
next three weeks, direct payments into most
people’s deposit accounts. And for those that don’t
have it, we will be having the checks in the mail. Treasury will have
additional authorities. We have $500 billion that
we can use to work with the Federal Reserve for
emergency programs that will create up to an
additional $4 trillion, if needed, to support
American business and American workers in
an unprecedented way. And then, finally, the
President mentioned $100 billion to hospitals and
$150 billion to states that have specific
coronavirus expenses, as well as many
additional things. Mr. President, I
especially want to thank you and the
Vice President. You are constantly
available to us. We spoke constantly
throughout the day. You gave us guidance and
quick decisions on many issues. And again, I thank
everybody for this great bipartisan work. This is going to be
enormous help for the American workers in
the American economy. The President was very
determined that Congress would move swiftly to
protect hardworking Americans in business
in this unprecedented situation. The President: Thank
you very much, Steve. Great job. Day and night, right? Secretary Mnuchin:
Day and night. The President:
Day and night. We was — that was —
that was a lot of work. And we’ll see
how it all goes. We still need a vote,
Steve, don’t we? Huh? Do you have a question? Yes. The Press: How long do you
think this bill will keep the economy afloat? The President:
Hopefully a long time. We’ll see. If we have to go back,
we have to go back. We’re going to take care
of the American worker. We’re going to take care
of these companies that fuel this country and
make the country great. It’s not their fault. It’s not their fault. But we think — Secretary
Mnuchin: I would say three — we’ve anticipated three
months; hopefully we won’t need this for
three months. Hopefully this will be won
quicker, but we expect that this is a significant
amount of money, if needed, to cover
the economy. The President: And don’t
forget, a lot of this is going to be — to keep
companies that are very strong — AAA-rated
companies, previously — to keep them going. And it’s going to be in
the form of loans, so the money is going
to come back. This money has — a lot of
this money is coming back. The Press: Separately, let
me ask you about something you said yesterday. You said, “We should never
be reliant on a foreign country for the means
of our own survival.” The President: Yeah. The Press: What did
you mean by that? The President: Well, I’ve
been saying that for a long time. The Press: Does that
mean — does that have something to do — The
President: Well, we’re reliant on many countries
where we give up our supply chains, we give up
our factories, we give up our production facilities,
and we can buy it someplace else for a
little bit lower price. But it’s really costing us
more when that happens, because we lose jobs, we
lose everything, and we lose our independence. And we can’t
let that happen. So we’ll be making
some changes. We have been making
those changes. The Press: Are you
considering an executive order to basically ban
the export of medical equipment? The President: I don’t
know that we’ll need that, but I think it’s
happening by itself. I think a lot of
things are happening. Well, some people — we
make the best medical equipment in the world,
and you have some people like the European Union,
they don’t take it, because they have
specifications that don’t allow our equipment in
because it’s designed in a different way. Even though it’s a better
way, it’s designed. They’re all — they’re all
playing games against us, okay? They’ve been playing games
against us for years, and no President has ever
done anything about it. But the European Union —
if you look at medical equipment, we make the
best medical equipment in the world, but we can’t
sell it because — or not appropriately. And yet, we take their
medical equipment in our country. We’re changing
things, Steve. All of this is changing. But they have
specifications so that our equipment — designed
specifically so that our equipment can’t come
into their countries. It’s a very terrible thing
that’s happened to our country. And, let me tell you, some
of the people that took the biggest advantage
of us: our allies. You know, we talk
about allies. They took advantage of
us in many ways, but financially as well as
even militarily when you look at — Look, I got —
if you look at NATO, the abuse that was given to
our country on NATO, where they wouldn’t pay, and we
were paying for everybody. We were paying — now,
because of me, they’re paying a lot. Now they’ve paid a 125,
135 million — billion dollars more. And then, ultimately,
Secretary General Stoltenberg — who, I
think, you would say is maybe my biggest fan —
we got them to pay an additional $400 billion
— billion — other countries. And — but — but
you know that. And then there’s
the trade. They make it — they make
it almost impossible for us to have a fair deal. They know this. They know I’m
just waiting. We have all the
advantages, by the way. It’s going to be easy
when I decide to do it. But this isn’t the
right time to do it. But we’ve been treated
very, very unfairly by the European Union. The Press: Mr. President
— The President: Please, go ahead. The Press: Mr. President,
four Republican senators have indicated that
the extra $600 for unemployment insurance may
encourage workers to leave their jobs, even though
you can only collect unemployment if
you’re fired. I’m curious what you
think of that concern. The President: Well, I
know the issue very well. We talked about it just
a little while ago. I’ll let — Steve, I’m
going to let you maybe discuss that. Secretary Mnuchin: Sure. Now, the President and I
spoke to several of those senators today. But let me just explain
the issue, which is: We wanted to have enhanced
unemployment insurance. Most of these states’
systems have technology that’s 30 years
old or older. So if we had the ability
to customize this with much more specifics,
we would have. This was the only way we
could assure that the states could get money out
quickly, in a fair way, so we use $600
across the board. And I don’t think it’ll
create incentives. Most Americans, what they
want — they want to keep their jobs. And I said for 50 percent
of these businesses, they will have the businesses
keep those jobs. So this was — our number
one issue was, how do we make sure that American
workers who needed to keep getting paid — this is no
fault of their own that businesses have
been shut down. The President and Vice
President wanted to make sure those hardworking
Americans got money. And this was the most
efficient way of doing it. The Press: Those senators
that you spoke with, are they in agreement now? Secretary Mnuchin: I’m not
going to comment on the specifics of where they
are, but I would say, you know, our expectation is
this bill passes tonight and gets to the House
tomorrow and they pass it. We need to get this money
into the American economy and American workers. That’s the
importance of this. The President: The one —
the one good thing, when you think about that,
people are going to get, actually, more money. But we don’t want to
give a disincentive. But they have been
talking about that. That’s a good
question, actually. The Press: Mr. President
— The President: Yes ma’am. Please. The Press: Yes. Thank you. The family — on another
subject, the family of retired FBI Agent Robert
Levinson says that U.S. officials have concluded
that he’s died in Iranian custody. Are you aware of that? And how — The President:
So — The Press: — did U.S. officials reach
that conclusion? The President: Yeah. You know, I’ve been very
much involved in that. And he was a great
gentleman, and a great family. It’s just — I mean, I
have to say this — and they’ve been making this
statement to the family, I believe: But it’s
not looking good. He wasn’t well for
years anyway, in Iran. It’s not looking
promising. We’ve gotten so
many people back. We got two people
back this week. But Robert Levinson, who
was outstanding, he was — he’s been sick
for a long time. And he had some rough
problems prior to his detainment or capture. And we feel terribly
for the family. The Press: Do you
accept that he is dead? The President: No, I don’t
accept that he’s dead. I don’t accept it. I mean, I’m telling you
it’s not — it’s not looking great, but I won’t
accept that he’s dead. They haven’t told us that
he’s dead, but a lot of people are thinking
that that is the case. I feel badly about it. The Press: Mr. President,
you had tweeted earlier, linking the closing of the
country to your election success in November. Is this Easter timeline
based on your political interests? Because — The President:
What do you mean by my election success? No. The Press: You tweeted. You said that the media
wants the country to remain closed to hurt your
odds of being reelected. The President: No, no. I think the media — yeah. No, the media would like
to see me do poorly in the election. And I think — I think —
The Press: Sir, lawmakers and economists on both
sides of the aisle have said that reopening the
country by Easter is not a good idea. What is that
plan based on? The President: Just so
you understand — are you ready? I think there are certain
people that would like it not to open so quickly. I think there are certain
people that would like it to do financially poorly
because they think that would be very good as far
as defeating me at the polls. And I don’t know if that’s
so, but I do think it’s so that a lot of — that
there are people in your profession that would
like that to happen. The Press: But your own
medical experts did not endorse that
plan yesterday. The President: I think
it’s very clear — I think it’s very clear that
there are people in your profession that
write fake news. You do. She does. There are people in your
profession that write fake news. They would love to see me,
for whatever reason — because we’ve done
one hell of a job. Nobody has done the
job that we’ve done. And it’s lucky that you
have this group here, right now, for this
problem, or you wouldn’t even have a country left. Okay. Go ahead, in the
back, please. The Press: Mr. President,
two questions. The first one: Once you
sign the 2-trillion-dollar package, how soon or how
rapidly do you expect to see economic growth? The President:
Who are you with? Who are you with? The Press: I’m with CBN. The President: Okay. The Press: And my second
question is: We are hearing you’re pushing for
April 6th to have direct payments issued
to taxpayers. Is that the target date? The President: I think
that’s pretty much, huh? Secretary Mnuchin:
Again, I would say our expectation is, within
three weeks, we will have direct payments out
where we have depository information. And we’re looking to get a
lot more information, and we have procedures
to do that. So three weeks for that. And I would say, at the
end of next week, we want all the banks to be able
to originate loans same day. The Press: Thank
you, Mr. President. I have two
questions for you. One is this: That,
tomorrow, you’re going to be speaking with the G20
leaders, and I want to know if you’re going to
lead an effort to craft a worldwide ban on wild
animal markets so as to prevent another pandemic,
given that COVID-19 is a zoonotic that was
transferred to humans in trade of exotic animals. The President: Yeah, I
don’t know that that subject is going
to come up. There is a lot of talk
that that’s how this all happened. It came out of China. And they say that’s how
it happened in China. So it’s something, maybe,
will be talked about, but it’s not the
top of my list. I think we’ll have a very
— I think we’re going to have very good
conference tomorrow. The Press: And to follow
up — also, Dr. Ashish Jha, who is the head of
Harvard’s Global Health Institute, says the key to
getting this economy open as soon as possible is to
test everyone who needs testing so we can
quarantine all infected individuals and allow
everyone else to go back to work immediately. Would you subscribe
to that strategy? The President: No, but I
— we have tested more than anybody. I saw it. The Press: And if not
— and if not, how many deaths are acceptable? The President: Yeah. How many? None. Okay? How many deaths are
acceptable to me? None. Okay? None, if that’s
your question. Look, I saw him. I saw his statement. We have tested, by far,
more than anybody. We’re testing more than
anybody right now. There’s nobody even close. And our tests are
the best tests. They’re the most
accurate tests. But if you’re saying we’re
going to test 350 million people — I watched his
statement; I disagree with it. We can go to certain
states — I could name them now, but I’m not
going to do that — but we can go to certain
states right now. They have virtually no
problem or a very small problem. We don’t have to test the
entire state in the Middle West or wherever
they may be. We don’t have to test
the entire state. I think it’s ridiculous. We don’t have to do it. A lot of those states
could go back right now, and they probably will. Because at some point
in the not-too-distant future, certain states
are going to come off the rolls. Maybe New York can’t and
maybe California can’t. Maybe the State of
Washington can’t, although if you look at them, their
biggest problem was in one nursing home. The Press: But the
state aren’t siloed. The President:
Yeah, go ahead. The Press: But the
states aren’t siloed. And so, I mean, somebody
— if you test one state, and then the person moves
over to the other state, well then — The
President: Well, you know, you’re going to
just look at that. But if you take a look at
the states and many states that I’m talking about,
they don’t have a problem. We have some big problems,
but it’s confined to certain areas,
high-density areas. So why would we test the
entire nation — 350 [million] people? With that being said, I’m
going to say it again: We tested far more
than anybody else. We are — we have the
ability to test — I mean, we’ve come a long way from
an obsolete, broken system that I inherited. We have now tested, with
the best test, far more than anybody else. And when I say “anybody
else,” I’m talking about other countries. No country is even close. They came out with a
statistic, I guess yesterday, that I heard
from Dr. Birx where it’s for eight — eight days
here, more than eight weeks in South Korea. And South Korea has
done a good job. But we did in eight days
more than South Korea did in eight weeks. That’s a big number. And we’re getting, I said
before, exponentially better. Every day, it’s going
up substantially. We have an incredible
apparatus built now. But, no, I don’t want to
test 350 million people. I think it’s ridiculous. Yes, please. The Press: Thank you so
much, Mr. President. Two questions. I want to follow up on
the G20 because the U.N. asked the G20 countries to
do — for more resources, for a coordinated stimulus
package, ban on tariffs, waive all sanctions to try
to prevent what they call an “apocalyptic pandemic.” Would you consider
those measures? And — The President:
With respect to what? The Press: On tariffs and
also — related also to waive tariffs and
also sanctions. The President: Look, we
have strong borders. Yeah. The Press: And would you
consider to join this global effort? The President: So, before
I came here, we weren’t into borders. We had a country —
people could come in. We had a whole
different deal. Now we’re up to
almost 164 miles. Think of that:
164 miles of wall. Big, beautiful wall. And in those areas, it’s
very, very tough to come in. We’ve been very
tough on the borders. I mean, where we have the
wall built, nobody is getting through. Now, they’re going around,
but that’s a long trip. If they’re going around,
that’s the way they get through. But, no, I’m very strong
on borders and I don’t want people
coming in here. What I want is, if they’re
going to come in, they have to come in legally. They have to come
in through merit. We’re not having the
people that you’re talking about come into
our country. All right. Please. The Press: Thank you, sir. A question for you and for
Dr. Fauci, if you’ll let me. Both Republican and
Democrat packages of the stimulus included $25
million worth of funding for the Kennedy
Performance Arts Center — The President: Yeah. The Press: — here
in Washington, D.C. Shouldn’t that money
be going to masks, respirators? The President: Well, I’ll
tell you what: I approved that, and I knew — it
was $35 million, and we actually took off
$10 [million]. But I’m a fan of that,
although I haven’t spent time there because
I’m far too busy. I’d love to go there
evenings, but I’m too busy doing things because
that’s more important for me than going there. But the Kennedy Center has
suffered greatly because nobody can go there. It’s essentially closed,
and they do need some funding. And I said, “Look…” — that was a
Democrat request. That was not my request. But you got to give
them something. It’s something
that they wanted. You know, it
works that way. The Democrats have
treated us fairly. I really believe that
we’ve had a very good back and forth, and I say that
with respect to Chuck Schumer. I spoke to him a
number of times. But, you know, they
had requests also. So that was a request. They were at $35 [million]
as you know, and it came down to $25 [million]. We got it down to $25
[million], and we agreed. I said, “That’s a
lousy soundbite. That’s not a
good soundbite.” But that’s the
way life works. With that being said, the
Kennedy Center, they do a beautiful job —
an incredible job. David Rubenstein
does a fantastic job. He is very much involved
and he puts up a lot of money, and he does things
that a lot of people wouldn’t be able
to do or do. But they’ve been
essentially closed. They have tremendous
deficits that are built up. I mean, this thing has
been devastating to it. So I didn’t have a
big problem with it. But this was a request
from the Democrats because of the fact that they
have a facility that’s essentially closed up. Yeah. The Press: Can I ask
another question, sir? The President: In other
words, you couldn’t go there if you wanted to. If I wanted to go there
tonight to look at “Romeo and Juliet” — I’d love
to see “Romeo and Juliet” tonight, right? You know what
would happen? They’d say, “Sorry.” Two hundred and fifty
people or fifty people, whatever it
might be down to. Go ahead. The Press: And then
earlier today, Senator Marco Rubio told RCP that,
quote, “the World Health Organization showed
favoritism to China,” unquote. And then Representative
Michael McCaul, the ranking member on the
House Foreign Relations Committee, he questioned
the integrity of the World Health Organization’s
director, saying, quote, “that there were several
red flags in his past with respect to his
relationship with China.” Do you agree? Do you think the World Health Organization showed favoritism? And then, once all the
dust settles, do you think that the United States
should re-explore its relationship with the
World Health Organization? The President: Well, I
think there is a lot of — certainly a lot of talk
that has been very unfair. I think that a lot
of people feel that. It’s been very unfair. It’s been very — very
much sided with China, and a lot of people are
not happy about it. At the same time, Dr.
Fauci and myself and other people -there are
people on there that we like and we know. A lot of — I think your
friends are on there. A lot of good people. A lot of good
professionals. I don’t know, it’d be
interesting to hear if you’d like to talk
about the World — WHO. But the fact is that I
have heard for years that that is very much biased
toward China, so I don’t know. Doctor, do you want to you
— do you want me to get you into this
political mess? Dr. Fauci: No, I don’t
want you to do that. But I will. (Laughs.) So, Tedros is
really an outstanding person. I’ve known him from the
time that he was the Minister of Health
of Ethiopia. I mean, obviously, over
the years, anyone who says that the WHO has not had
problems has not been watching the WHO. But I think, under his
leadership, they’ve done very well. He has been all over this. I was on the phone with
him a few hours ago leading a WHO call. The Press: Praising
China’s transparency, sir? Dr. Fauci: No. No, I’m not — I’m not
talking about China. You asked me about Tedros. The Press: The World
Health Organization was praising China for
its transparency and leadership on their
response to the pandemic. Dr. Fauci: You know, I
can’t comment on that because — I mean, I don’t
have any viewpoint into it. I mean, I don’t — I
don’t even know what your question is. The President: Hey,
welcome to the group. (laughter) You know, let
— let me just tell you, I’ve heard that for years. I spoke to him yesterday. Seems fine to me. I don’t know. But we’re the ones that
gave the great response, and we’re the ones that
kept China out of here. And if I didn’t do it,
you’d have thousands and thousands of people died
— who would’ve died — that are now
living and happy. If I didn’t do that early
call on China — and nobody wanted
that to happen. Everybody thought it was a
— just unnecessary to do it. And if we didn’t do that,
thousands and thousands of people would have died,
more than what’s happened. So that’s it. All right, maybe one more. Steve, go ahead. The Press: When you have
this G20 meeting tomorrow, what sort of coordinated
response are you expecting? The President: No
coordinate — we’re going to have a meeting with
the 20 nations total, including us, and
there’ll be — it’ll be a conference call tomorrow
morning sometime. I look forward to
people I know, I like. I think, in every
instance, I like every one of them, but it’ll be
an interesting call. You’ll be the
first to know. The Press: And — and next
week, when the 15-day period ends, what — what
should we expect then? Are you going to extend it
for another week or two or — The President: Well,
we’ll be talking. I’ll — I’ll be speaking
— I’ll be speaking with Tony. I’ll be speaking
with Deborah. I’ll be speaking with some
of the people that they like and respect and
they’re going to bring along with them. We’ll be speaking to Vice
President Mike Pence and Steve, and we’ll be
speaking to everybody. I’m not going to do
anything rash or hastily. I don’t do that. But the country wants
to get back to work. Our country was built
to get back to work. We don’t have the — a
country where they say, “Hey, let’s close it
down for two years.” We can’t do that. It’s not our country. So we’re going to be
talking, and it could be we’ll do sections
of our country. There’s big sections of
our country that are very, you know, little affected
by what’s taking place. Then there are other
sections that are very heavily affected, so
there’s a big difference. But, no, I would say
by Easter we’ll have a recommendation, and
maybe before Easter. And at the end of the 15th
day or even during the 15th day, I think we’ll have some kind of a recommendation. But our country wants to
get back to work, Steve. I have had so many people
— and they want to practice social distancing
and they want to practice no handshaking. No handshaking. They’re not going to go
walk around hugging and kissing each other in the
office when they come back, even though
they may feel like it. They’re going to do —
they’re going to wash their hands more than
they’ve ever done. They’re going to do all the things you’re supposed to do. But, Steve, you know what? It’s — it’s time. They want — people want
to get back to work. I’m having — I get — you
know, I get it from both sides, in all fairness,
and maybe it’s a combination of both. Tony said before, a
combination of both is — is sometimes very good. But there are areas that
possibly, probably they won’t qualify. There are other areas
that qualify almost now. So we’re going to have
to see what happens, but it’ll be an interesting
period of time. I’d like to get
our country back. I have tremendous numbers
of people wanting to go back. You have store owners where the store is sitting there. They don’t know what’s
happened; they’ve got to get back. You have businesses that
are going to be closed. The longer we stay out,
the longer we do it — we want to go quickly. The longer we stay out,
the harder it is to bring this incredible — we were
having the most successful years that we’ve ever had
in the history of our country. You saw what happened
yesterday with the stocks, and today they’re up. I’m telling you, if Steve
gets the deal done — the incredible incentive deal
— it’s going to take care of people, it’s going to
take care of our workers, it’s going to take care of
companies that employ all these workers —
small and big. By the way, I would say
we spend more time on the small companies, Steve,
than we did on the big companies. You know, people
ask about that. We spend more time
thinking about the small businesses than the big,
and that’s been — you know that really
fuels our country. We want to get back, and
the people want to get back. We want to get our — our
country going again and we’ll be able to do that. So, the Vice President is
going to stay with you and going to take a few more
questions, specifically, and I will see
you tomorrow. Thank you very much. The Vice President:
Well, thank you all. I’ll report on today’s
action by the White House Coronavirus Task Force. The President and our
entire team continue to be inspired by the way people
all across this country are putting into practice
“15 Days to Slow the Spread.” We are 10 days
into the 15 days. And let me say again to
every American: If you’re in an area that’s
been impacted by the coronavirus, it’s
absolutely essential that you listen to state and
local authorities for guidance. But for every American:
What you can do is implement the practices
outlined in the President’s coronavirus
guidelines today. Because we truly do
believe that, as millions of Americans have done and
will continue to do, that we can significantly
impact the — the rate of growth in this epidemic in
our country, we can spare Americans from exposure to
the coronavirus, and we can save lives. And so, on behalf of the
President and our entire task force, I want to say thank you to the American people. Thank you for
your cooperation. Thank you for embracing
the principles in “15 Days to Slow the Spread.” We heard about that
cooperation today in a series of
conference calls. We spoke with equipment
manufacturers who are stepping forward as never
before to assist us in developing the medical
equipment that is essential, whether it be
masks or other medical supplies or ventilators. FEMA reported to our task
force today that hundreds of companies have stepped
forward to be involved in the supply chain and we
are — we are vetting nearly 70 of those
countries [sic] for specific repurposing of
their manufacturing to produce everything from
masks to gloves to gowns, and of course,
to ventilators. We also had a very
productive call with Secretary Betsy DeVos,
with education leaders from around the
country today. And let me say, on behalf
of the President and a grateful nation, thank you
to all of our teachers, many of whom are now home
teaching children from afar, even in many cases
while they have their own kids home from school. You are truly heroes
and the Department of Education, as well as
your State Department of Education, are grateful to
each and every one of you who find yourselves
educating out of home. And the Department of
Education has a helpful website on coronavirus
recommendations: Ed.gov/Coronavirus. And as we mentioned
before, Secretary Betsy DeVos and Secretary Sonny
Perdue will be joining us at this podium on Friday
to speak about distance learning recommendations
that have been made not just for secondary or for
college education, but also for K-12 education. We’re opening up avenues,
creating new flexibility so that not only college
students can continue to be involved in learning
from afar, but children K-12 can do the same. Secretary Perdue will also
be here to talk about the food lunch program and
free and reduced lunches. Today, the President and
I also spoke to over 150 CEOs of the top nonprofit
organizations in the country. We thanked them for their
ongoing work supplying the needs not only of
people impacted by the coronavirus, but the most vulnerable among us in our communities. Organizations like Red
Cross, the Salvation Army, Feeding America are all
still working every day. And we promised to urge
every American: If you have the means and have
the ability, continue to be generous to nonprofit
organizations that are helping those most in
need in your community. The President marshaled
a whole-of-government approach. That means working with
our governors today. The President and I were
in direct contact with governors of New York,
California, Washington State, New Jersey,
Michigan, and others, and we continue to be inspired
and impressed by the leadership that governors
are providing in their states, making tough
choices, leading their states. And the President and
I are truly grateful. The task force made a
recommendation and FEMA has assembled a team for
— to provide technical assistance to the
state of New York. And that team was welcomed
by Governor Cuomo. It will be arriving on the
ground there very soon along with all the other
resources that the President recently
announced would be flowing to New York and to Washington State and to California. In my conversation with
Governor Gavin Newsom of California, I was pleased
to speak to him and hear that our FEMA team is
literally at the table with the State of
California’s team, working to meet their supply needs, working to work on capacity. And I want the people to
know, in the states that are most impacted by the
coronavirus, that we are with you, we’re going to
stay with you, and we’re going to continue to work
around the clock to make sure you’re courageous
healthcare workers, your health systems, and your
state governments have the resources to support
your response. On the subject of testing,
Dr. Birx will reflect on what the data is showing
in just a moment. Not including local labs
and hospitals, we are at 432,000 tests completed. And we’re pleased to see
that there are literally drive-through and
community sites around the country, and the U.S. Public Health Service
is assisting states in standing those up
each and every day. We do remind hospitals and
labs around the country — and the moment the
President signs the bill that — that it’s
absolutely essential that they provide the results
of the tests to us. It gives up visibility
into what’s happening on the ground. But because of the
public-private partnership President Trump initiated
with these vast commercial lab networks around the
country, we’re adding tens of thousands of tests
every single day. On the subject of
supplies: Before the end of the week, we’ll talk a
bit more, as the President did moments ago, about
the supply chain. I was at FEMA last night
and literally saw a room full of people with
laptops and cell phones. We are literally leaving
no stone unturned, as I told governors today, to
find medical supplies, whether it be — whether
it be masks or gowns or gloves or ventilators. And the team is working
around the clock to meet those needs. A few smaller items: First
and foremost, the CDC is developing guidance,
which we’ll be publishing tomorrow, about the best
way to utilize our natural resources at our parks. It would be several weeks
ago that our Park Service waived all entrance fees. And we directed the CDC to
produ- — produce guidance for how people can still
practice social distancing and common sense but be
outdoors and enjoy our natural parks. We’ll also be sharing that
guidance with the vast state parks systems
around the country and encouraging their support. With that, let me —
let me last say, again, there’s nothing more
important for the American people to do to slow the
spread than to heed your state and local guidance
in areas impacted by the coronavirus, and for
everyone else to put into practice the “15 Days
to Slow the Spread.” Dr. Fauci will reflect
on the importance of mitigation and the impact
that we believe that it is having around the country. But it is — the people
ask me, from time to time, “What can I do?” And I say from my heart to
every American: This is what you can do not just
to protect your own health and that of your family,
but no American wants to inadvertently spread the
coronavirus, particularly to those that may be
vulnerable to serious health consequences. Remember that the risk of
serious illness to the average American
remains low. I mean, the vast majority
of people that contract the coronavirus will have
mild symptoms to flu-like symptoms and —
and will recover. But for seniors with
serious underlying health conditions or with people
with immunodeficiencies, everyone needs to practice
the principles of “15 Days to Slow the Spread.” The President announced
this week that we are looking forward to the day
that we can open up the country. And this team will
be bringing in recommendations about
how we can safely and responsibly do just that. But for every American
that wants to see America back in business, you can
hasten the day by putting into practice the “15
Days to Slow the Spread.” Go to Coronavirus.gov
for details. And I truly do believe if
all of us will do all that we can do, we will slow
the spread, we will protect the most
vulnerable, and we will heal our land. With that, let me
recognize Dr. Tony Fauci and to speak about —
Dr. Fauci: (Inaudible.) The Vice President:
Oh, Dr. Birx, please. And then Dr. Fauci. Thanks, Deborah. Dr. Birx: Thank you,
Mr. Vice President. And thank you all for
listening to us talk to the American people. We’ve been watching the
testing results very — it’s very critical to us. It’s very critical to be looking at that very carefully. Let me tell you two things
that are going on in parallel: Our system to
look at flu-like illnesses is still up and running
and — in county after county and state
after state. And why is that important? For those of you who have
been following the flu epidemic this year, you’ll
remember we had flu A, then we had another
peak of flu B. And those systems that are
in every single state and local government is the
platform where we can see whether there’s any
increase in flu-like illnesses. So if you have very few
cases in your state and in your counties, maintain
your flu surveillance system that you work
closely with the CDC on, and look for changes in your slope of new flu-like illnesses. And there are enough
test kits, and there’s particularly enough of
the CDC test kit where we started — that runs on
your flu surveillance platform — to be
constantly surveilling what those flu-like
illnesses are in our states and counties that
have very low number of cases. We have counties still
with zero to one cases, but they can participate
in the surveillance that we need to have out
there now by using their flu-like
surveillance system. And we thank all of the
states who have that up and running. If you go to CDC.gov and
go to “Flu Surveillance”, you can see state by
state, and you can be looking at those
curves with us. It’s what we’re looking at
day by day, in addition to the testing results
that are coming in. For the testing results
still on — there’s four counties that constitute
the majority of both the current cases
and new cases. I think you know those
are New York City; Westchester, New York;
Suffolk; and Nassau County. Those are the four
counties, all associated with New York and the
New York metro area. There’s a few counties in
New Jersey, but this is still where 56 percent
of the cases are and 56 percent of the new cases. It’s very important that
people look at the number of new cases per day. Remember, we told you it’s
going to take us a while to work through the
testing backlog. I think we’re close to
working through the testing backlog so that
you can interpret the number of cases per day. And you will see, in New
York City, that the number of cases per day has been
relatively constant over the last three days; those
are the number of new cases per day. This is a real call to
every person in New York City and the New York
metro area to continue every one of these “15
Days to Slow the Spread,” and to do that part of
it at the same time that they’re following the
mayors’ and governor’s piece. Yesterday we talked about
people that may have left the metro area that were
residents — residents of the metro area that may
have gone to secondary homes or other places
where — to reside. And we’ve asked all of
them to carefully monitor their temperatures and
self-isolate from the communities where they
went just to ensure their own health and the health
of their communities while they — people move
around the country. Finally, why this is so
important: It’s very important to me personally
because my grandmother, for 88 years, lived with
the fact that she was the one, at age 11, who
brought home flu to her mother, named Leah — for
which I am named — when her mother had
just delivered. And her mother succumbed
to the great 1918 flu. She never forgot that she
was the child that was in school that innocently
brought that flu home. This is why we keep saying
to every American: You have a role to protect
each and every person that you interact with. We have a role to
protect one another. It’s why we are social
distancing and you are social distancing. But to every American
out there: When you are protecting yourself,
you’re protecting others. And if you —
inadvertently, I know — brought this virus home to
someone with a preexisting condition, I can tell you
my grandmother lived with that for 88 years. So this is what we’re
trying — this is the message that’s
important to everybody. This is not a theoretic;
this is a reality. You can see the number of
deaths that are occurring. We all have a role
in preventing them. So thank you for the work
that you do to get our message out to others to
really ensure that every American understands how
important their role is as we move through these next
five days to not let up for an instant. I hear some reports that
someone said, “Oh, well, the new cases in New York
are increasing,” or “The hospitalizations
are increasing.” The number of new cases
over the last three days have been consistent, but
not rising any more than a consistent
day-over-day rise. You will see hospital
cases continue to increase because they are a
reflection of what happened one to two weeks
ago, before the full mitigation efforts
were put into place. So, each person in every
place — no matter what county, what community,
what state — can work with us to ensure that we
prevent the spread of this virus to others. So thank you. The Vice President:
Well done. Doctor? Dr. Fauci: Thank you,
Mr. Vice President. I just want to spend a
couple of minutes telling you a little bit about
some information that I got on our weekly call
that we have at least once a week with the W- —
with WHO, which is led by Dr. Tedros and Mike Ryan,
who’s the point man there, to give us some
information. And, in that regard, I
want to apologize for my curt response to you when
you asked me about the China deal because I
shouldn’t have done that. That’s not my style. But what I really wanted
to say is that my job is that I’m a scientist, I’m
a physician, and I’m a public-health person and I
don’t like to get involved in that stuff. So, anyway, getting
back to the WHO. So we learned some really
interesting information because, obviously, the
other countries, like China and others, have —
had been hit prior that we did. One of the things that was
striking to me — and I just throw it out because
it’s something that we will face. We’re not facing it now,
but we will face — our Chinese colleagues are
very concerned because they went through the
entire cycle of the curve to come down. And they have very,
very few cases. But what they’re starting
to see as they’re relaxing the constraints on travel,
that they’re getting imported cases. And they wanted to warn
us that when we get successful, make sure you
very carefully examine how you’re going to release
the constraints on inputs. So I know we’re going to
be successful in putting this under control, but I
think we’re going to have to remember, we don’t
want to import cases in. That’s the first
thing for today. The second thing that was
important is that — it was something that
Dr. Birx mentioned. And that is, when you look
at the inflection of the curves, we now have
multiple different countries that have gone
through various phases of their individual outbreaks
and you could learn something from them about
where you are in your own outbreak. For example, when China
went up, what happened is they just didn’t
turn around. They went from going
to — I’ll just take an arbitrary number —
500 new cases a day. The next day, it was 1,000
cases, then 1,500, and then 2,000. But once the number of new
cases each day starts to flatten out, that’s when
you get to that point where the inflection
goes down. So if you — what —
things we want to look for are the things that
Dr. Birx had mentioned. That doesn’t mean you
declare victory when it does that, but you know
you’re at least on the way to where you want to go. And I think that’s
really very important. The third and final thing
that I think gets back to the question that many of
you in the audience have asked of us, is about:
Would this possibly become a seasonal cyclic thing? And I’ve always indicated
to you that I think it very well might. And the reason I say
that is that what we’re starting to see now in the
Southern Hemisphere — in southern Africa and in
the Southern-Hemisphere countries — is that we’re
having cases that are appearing as they go into
their winter season. And if, in fact, they have
a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we
need to be prepared that we’ll get a cycle
around the second time. What does that mean for
us and what we’re doing? It totally emphasizes the
need to do what we’re doing in developing a
vaccine, testing it quickly, and trying to get
it ready so that we’ll have a vaccine available
for that next cycle. In addition, to do the
randomized controlled trials of drugs, so that
we will have a menu of drugs that we have shown
to be effective and shown to be safe. Because I know we’ll be
successful in putting this down now, but we really
need to be prepared for another cycle. And what we’re doing, I
believe, will prepare us well. Thank you. The Vice President:
Thanks, Doctor. We’ll take a
few questions. Please. The Press: Mr. Vice
President, on ventilators, some really important
reporting from the Center of Public Integrity today. They suggested that
there’s only 16,000 in the National Stockpile. Can you just give us
some clarity: How many ventilators do you have
the National Stockpile? Who else is making them? And how long will it take
for them to make the critical mass? Because based on the
Center for Public Integrity, it appears
there aren’t enough and people are doing
to die as a result. The Vice President:
Ventilators has been a singular focus of a good
portion of our Supply Chain Stabilization Task
Force at FEMA since the President stood up, FEMA’s
National Response Center. And we’re making progress
in a variety of ways. First, there — there is
the National Stockpile, which you refer. And depending on what’s
been distributed, we just delivered 4,000
ventilators to New York, including ventilators that
we sent to New York City. But there’s that — that
number of some — The Press: Which number? The Vice President:
– some 20,000. Less than 20,000. I won’t dispute
your number. Beyond that, there
literally are, by most estimates, more than
150,000 ventilators in the broad healthcare system
all across the country. We also, working with
anesthesiologists — and there was a very important
conference call today — we have determined,
several weeks ago, that the devices that
anesthesiologists use for outpatient surgery can be
converted with the change of a single vent to a
very useful ventilator. I actually spoke to
Governor Cuomo about that today. He’s in the process of
surveying all of his surgical centers, as
governors around the country are doing. We literally believe
there’s tens of thousands of ventilators that can be
converted now that the FDA has given guidance. And Dr. Birx can probably
speak to that in a moment. We actually have produced
a helpful video to explain how quickly those devices
can be converted, but we’re also working with
General Motors and — and other companies to
immediately spin up production. Those contracts
are being reviewed. We’re vetting
their capability. But one of the other ideas
is, as we look at areas of the country that are most
impacted — and now more than half of the cases for
coronavirus are in New York State and in the
region around there — but we’ll focus — we’ll want
to focus our resources, including ventilators, on
where — where communities are struggling the
most with coronavirus. And so one of the ways
that we’re working through that at FEMA now is by
spinning up production and, at the same time,
working with the existing national supply — maybe
from areas that don’t have a particular burden yet
with the coronavirus — and making sure that
we’re manufacturing, backfilling, and
meeting that need. But what I can tell you is
we’ve got an extraordinary team. Admiral Polowczyk is a
two-star Navy Admiral who’s doing an
incredible job. We literally are
identifying resources around the country
and around the world. We’re contracting and
arranging transportation for those. But maybe — maybe, Dr.
Birx, you can speak to the ventilator, quickly
— Dr. Birx: Thank you. The Vice President:
– transition. Dr. Birx: Thank you, sir. So I just want to thank
Dr. Mary Peterson and the whole team of the
American Association of Anesthesiologists because
they immediately — when we asked them, “Could
these be modified?” — they went to
immediate work on it. They’ve done — they’re
going to have Q&A’s up for — but more importantly,
every anesthesiologist in every city has been
working with their state and local health officials
to really work with them how to change this. And I think that it’s not
only the ventilators that they’ll be supplying; they
have the people that run those ventilators that
are not any longer doing elective surgery. So changing that electrics
[sic] — elective surgery piece over a week ago
has freed up a lot of additional resources. When I talk to you about
how we are, we’ve done some things that are very
horizontal across the country, but we’re
collecting data now in a county-by-county,
granular way. So it’s like any epidemic;
it’s not equal everywhere. There are places that are
very spared and there’s places where there’s more. We have a very vast
country with a lot of capacity and a lot
of infrastructure. And so, looking very
specifically about where the virus has been, where
is it going, who’s got freed up resources from
where it has been — because it didn’t hit all
— it hit Washington State earlier than it hit New
York — and looking at all of those pieces to
really ensure how we can innovatively move
equipment around based on the need. And so, I know that it
has become a place where people are looking at
numbers rather than what is needed. Because if you do these
projections, when you got to those projections that
said — like in Germany and others, that implied
that 60 percent or 50 percent of the population
would get infected — the — I want to be very
clear, the only way that happens is if this virus
remains continuously moving through populations
in this cycle, in the fall cycle, and another cycle. So that’s through three
cycles with nothing being done. And so we’re dealing with
Cycle A right now, not the one that could come in the
fall of 2020 — although we’re getting prepared for
it by the innovations that are being worked on
— and not the 2021. We’re really dealing with
the here and now, while we’re planning
for the future. And I think the numbers
that have been put out there are actually very
frightening to people. But I can tell you, if you
go back and look at Wuhan and Hubei and all of these
provinces, when they talk about 60,000 people being
infected, even if you said, “Oh, right. Well, there is
asymptomatics and all of that” — so you get to 600,000 people out of 80 million. That is nowhere close to
the numbers that you see people putting out there. I think it has frightened
the American people. I think on a freely — on
a model that you just run full out, you can get to
those numbers if you have zero controls and
you do nothing. And we know that every
American is doing something. And so I think what our
job right now is, is to carefully detail on a
hospital by hospital, state by state, county by
county, to outline what the infrastructure needs
are and ensure that we’re meeting them, both from
the stockpile and from the generosity and movement of
the American people and other hospitals. The Press: Dr. Birx, a lot
of folks out there, well intentioned, are sewing
cloth masks and donating them to hospitals. Are you or Dr. Fauci —
can you weigh in on that? Because obviously these
people have great intentions, but there’s
some mixed feedback on whether that’s
a good idea. Dr. Fauci: I’m sorry, what
— The Press: Better than nothing? Surgical masks —
people are sewing them. So, clothing
manufacturers, volunteers — dropping them
off at hospitals. Is that necessary? Is that helpful? Is it something
you’d recommend? Better than nothing? Dr. Fauci: Well, I mean,
you would only recommend that under desperate
situations if you don’t have any masks. But what we’re seeing now,
as you’ve heard, is a rather significant inflow
of masks that are coming in that are going
to be available. I mean, obviously, if you
don’t have a mask and you need a mask and it’s
appropriate for you to wear it, you do
what you can. But I don’t see that now
as a necessity given what’s going on right now. The Vice President: Great. Great. The Press: Mr. Vice
President — The Vice President: Go
ahead back there. We’ll take a
couple of more. Thanks. The Press: Thank you,
Mr. Vice President. We keep hearing reports
of competition among the states that are trying
to buy this necessary equipment on the
private market. And the governor of
Kentucky said yesterday that his state was in line
to buy some equipment, but FEMA came in and bought it
— purchased it from under them. So he says this is
creating a real problem for the states because,
on the one hand, they’re being told to get the
equipment themselves if they can. But on the other hand,
the federal government is buying up the
supply chain. So is this a problem that
you’re hearing about and what is your advice to
states like Kentucky that are having this issue? The Vice President: I
actually spoke to the governor of Michigan today
— Governor Whitmer and I — about just that. And we put our FEMA
regional representative right on the case. We want to make sure that
we are — we’re acquiring every bit as much as
we can through FEMA. But as we’ve work with the
supply chain, we want to have full coordination
with the states and the requests they’re making,
and hospitals — that they’re making. And we’re looking
into those matters. But make no mistake about
it: This FEMA team, at the President’s direction, is
leaning into this effort, leaving no stone unturned
— literally searching not just the nation, but
the world for all these critical supplies. And as the President just
reported to you, we’re in the process of shipping
9.4 million N95 respirators, 20 million
surgical masks, 3.1 million face shields,
and the list goes on. And we’re going to be
shipping those every single day. But as I told Governor
Whitmer today, who is leading her state through
all of this with great energy, we want to partner
with her and we want to partner with every
governor and make sure that the left hand knows
what the right hand is doing, in terms of
acquiring resources. How about you right here? You haven’t had one. The Press: Thank
you so much. The Vice President:
No, right here. The Press: Thank you. The Vice President:
Thank you. Go ahead. The Press: On the mask
question, people work — healthcare workers on the
ground still report that there are mask shortages. When — what timeline do
you predict for making sure everyone who needs
masks is adequately supplied? The Vice President: Well,
I’m going to let Dr. Birx address that as well. But let me say again: I
just received a report — we’re going to be
detailing it before the end of the week — where
we’ve literally identified significant resources
— not just around the country, but around the
world — of the masks that can be used by
healthcare workers. And — but as Dr. Birx
said, we are focusing those resources in the
areas where healthcare workers are most exposed
to the prospect of contracting the
coronavirus. The President has made it
clear from early on, right after seeing the needs
of Americans who are struggling with the
coronavirus, making sure they have the support
that they need. On the same level of
priority, we want our healthcare workers to have
the personal protective equipment to be able
to do their job safely. And we’re working on that. I will tell you, I spoke
about this today to several governors — not
only the governor of Michigan, but the
governor of Indiana. And President Trump and I
couldn’t be more grateful the way governors around
the country are joining us in calling on businesses
to go back to their warehouses and identify
industrial masks — N95 masks — that, because of
the change that President Trump insisted on in the
law, can now be used by hospital workers. And they’re perfectly
acceptable to protect a healthcare worker from
the possibility of a respiratory disease. But we’re calling on and
our governors are joining us in calling on every
business across America, during this time of great
challenge where many businesses are idled,
to go back to your storehouses, identify
N95 industrial masks. And, as I told our
governors today: They can call FEMA, they can call
the state, the state healthcare services, or
they can just load them up on a flatbed and drive them over to their local hospital. And literally we hear
stories in every state in the Union of
people doing that. And so it’s — it’s
happening all at the same time and we’ll be
detailing the progress we’re making on masks. Anything further, Deb? Dr. Birx: Thank you,
Mr. Vice President. I just wanted to
add one piece. And this is really a call
to every state out there and every county that has
been doing community-based testing. The FDA put out new
guidance — we talked about it several days ago
— that people can do self-testing in the
drive-through, where you give them the materials to
do it in their car and you pick it up in a
biohazard bag. This would free up all of
that PPE — that you see being utilized in those
drive-throughs — back to the hospitals and back to
the clinics that need it the most. We have to move to
the new technology. We’re — FDA worked
tirelessly to get that out there so that it could
be sparing of gowns and gloves and full mes-
— respiratory N95s. This is the moment to
move to that self-testing front-of-nose with the new
applicators that can be utilized so that every
single bit of the N95s can be put into the hospitals
that need them. (Cross-talk.) The Vice
President: Let me just — let me just — let me just
say, we look forward to seeing you all tomorrow. We’ll be back here with
further progress and news. But if I could just say to
every American: We’ll get through this. The Press: Is he okay? You keep asking
him if he’s okay. Dr. Fauci: I’m fine. I’m good. The Press: He keeps asking
you if you’re okay. The Vice President:
We’ll get through this. Dr. Fauci: I’m tired. (laughter) The Vice
President: But we’ll get through this together. Every American needs to
understand that whether you are in an area
that’s impacted by the coronavirus or an area
where there’s very few cases, if you do your part
to put into practice “15 Days to slow the Spread,”
you will do just that. You’ll — you’ll impact
the spread of this coronavirus epidemic
in our country. These experts tell me
that we can significantly reduce the number of
Americans that would be exposed to the coronavirus
as every American continues to put these
guidelines into practice. And we just know that with
all of the extraordinary effort that’s being done
at the federal level by this tremendous team and
all of our agencies, all the great leadership by
governors in both parties across the country, with
all the incredible and courageous work by
healthcare workers, with the cooperation and the
prayers of the American people, we will
get this done. We will — we will not
only — we will not only slow the spread, we’ll
protect the vulnerable, and we’ll heal our land. Thank you all. We’ll see you tomorrow.

  • The Village Idiot is totally clueless and doesn't care about lives just money, money, money and himself. Disgusting piece of fecak matter should just STFU……………

  • What's insulting is how quickly all of our freedom evaporated. Should we exercise any of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution, we get put in a cage without a trial. I'm capable of exercising reason and consider it my responsibility and obligation to freedom to do so. This isn't more deadly in the USA than the 2018 flu, other than to our freedoms. Politicians everywhere jumped at the opportunity to take our freedoms in light of this "disaster". They never let a crisis go to waste in promoting their agenda, regardless of the impact to the people they're to serve. They never lay down the power once they have it. IMO, people should be outraged. I want my freedom back. All of it, without compromise.

  • You failed us.

  • Good point:

    Trump's standard problem solving method. Step 1: Lie about it. (E.g., It's a hoax; I never met/barely know the woman; My tax returns are beautiful; I have bone spurs.) Step 2: Try to buy your way out of it. Step 3: Accuse someone else of doing it. Step 4: Claim to be the victim in the situation. Step 5: Get angry about it. Step 6: Praise your wonderful supporters for loving you.

  • Where are the clowns? Send in the clowns. Don't bother, they're here.

  • How is America making progress against the Coronavirus? 20 seconds in and he's already telling lies.

  • Thank you mrs President. We need to get back to work ASAP

  • President Trump get rid of Doctor Brix. .. she's tied to Marie Yovanovitch, and Petfar. .. a slush fund for HIV, where monies were compromised. She's part of the "Deep State". Remove her, she's a phoney. Came back to spell PHONEY… Doctor Brix.

  • March 26 at 5 pm my daughter who is a nurse screening corona virus patients has one mask. The president is not telling the truth health professionals when he says they have masks and that is not true.

  • Hopefully the government will enact a mandatory quarantine to slow this virus. There is no other way. It has come to that. People are still going out and they shouldn’t !

  • @The White House, Mr. Presidente please take the following advise from a simple person like me: Provide all the people with mask and hand's gloves and open all the business and normal dairy nation's activities, making mandatory the use of mask and gloves for everyone until the pandemic has been defeated. Also keep the social-distance advice. Thanks!!!

  • Historical this pandemic will test each country’s health care systems…..and information networks! Already….Russia,China even Mexico are responding quite differently. Low numbers reported,…but of course no verification like here in the US. So it maybe years before we know the full extent of this virus. Wild story’s! You really should look at “facts”reported by………….one story,one voice governments. Many don’t have complete control over its own populations…..to control this virus! Even with its low mortality rate,…..it’s toll maybe far higher then reported by CNN and others. Can’t exactly shove a microphone in front of some leaders……and ask hard questions! Not aloud! It’s one story,one voice. America we know the difference….between truth and spin. I’m 54! I’ve seen many similar flu responses before….historically it always similar. Ex-SERE instructor. Don’t know the future…..I do know the west is far ahead in such crisis! Other country’s…….not so much! Stay tuned….Stay healthy! Hope for the best……prepared for the worst! Deal with the known…….the unknown as it appears! Facts destroy rumor mills! Our media only reports on story’s they read from other government news sources. They don’t question any of it! Just pass it on! Still haven’t got a straight answer from Iran on them shooting down there own airliner. Completely forgotten by the media….and Canada. They launched ballistic missle’s at US. Media….can only blame Trump. Say it’s a bid for an election. Forgetting our own men and women in uniform…they all seemed disappointed Iran didn’t hurt us more. Just crazy socialist media. However it’s there employer from over seas that’s faceless…and not at all responsible for truth or peace! I see you! Behind Harvard educated pencil necked geeks! In a battle of wits…….you are unarmed….college boy! Old man reporter who still probably didn’t wash his hands……despite the crap coming out of his mouth! Interesting!

  • JMJ+. Dear Team Trump-Pence ?, with l?ve from Canada…
    Has anyone contacted Bill and Hillary to see if they are going to help their fellow American citizens with some money from the "Clinton Foundation"? Their "Foundation" seems to be quite concerned with world health issues so one would think they would be right in there helping with ?. Hmmmm!?! Just to keep Bill and Hillary Clinton HONEST though, (since that has long been an issue), and to show cooperation and genuine bi-partisan care for Americans, they should agree the money can be administered to the American people through Team Trump-Pence ?… with common citizens contacting Bill and Hillary to confirm receipt of the Clinton Foundation money with notes of thanks to the lovely couple! I wonder if Soros and Bloomberg would chip in a few billion too or are they too busy donating to the Democratic Party Death Cult? Maybe Madonna, who consistently speaks out against President Donald J Trump ?, could help too and stop spending all that money on herself (botox injections, trips to the hairdresser).

  • @25:00 OWNED!!!!

  • FINALLY.!!!!!

  • IT’s BEEN DETERMINED MASKS ASEFFECTIVE AS THE N95 HEALTH CARE WRKRS CAN BE MADE FROM UNUSED VACUUM CLEANER BAGS. JUST WANNA PASS THE WORD since volunteers are collecting from nghbrs to pattern and sew thenew bundlesofmasks.

  • God bless you President Trump, VP Pence and support networks. Your leadership, caring and incredibly hard work to protect citizens and to help crush the curve of covid19 is so important and a great example for the world. ???


  • How is it ok to group together with them but not normal American citizens if we choose to group together??? And suddenly there’s treatment for a virus after telling people there’s never been treatment for it?? Cmon people wake up

  • For this global issue in this critical time what we are supposed to concern is what God's perspective is instead of what people care.

  • 129? Dumbasses

  • Pres. Trump, VP Pence, task force and deplorables will win and overcome this Wuhan Virus. IJN Pres. Trump please do not trust Cuomo and DiBlasio…they are stock piling instead of distributing the ventilators and masks, etc.

  • Can we skip the small talk and just give us facts, tired of watching hours long and comparing it to the twisted crap from the media

  • ByBL- Why don't they use mail ordering? Or Mainly grocery drive-up ? Such as Walmart, and a local grocery store has online shopping and drive through pick up. Some are so busy they can't keep up. Have the workers and people picking up, use (when available) masks, gloves and no touching of scanning equipment. Call in orders to companies, and curbside pick up or mail items. Delivery drivers should, stop uaving customers signing for packages and use a online signature confirming delivery. The drivers scan packages at the time of delivery anyway. Thinking outside the literal box (office, factory floors) to keep people working and distance. Safety is Paramount, if your not going to be safe don't do it.

  • He kicked the crap out of that silly reporter

Our pathetic President fired the pandemic response team that President Obama assembled in 2015. Trump's malfeasance is harming everyone in the USA. Lowering interest rates and reducing income tax rates to combat the COVID-19 pandemic is as useful as a wooden frying pan.
