During a visit to the American Red Cross National Headquarters in Washington on Thursday afternoon, President Trump wore a mask in public for the third time.
Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams also gave Trump a message from supporters he said he met with recently in Miami.
“I was in Trump country,” Adams said. “They told me to deliver you a message, Mr. President. They told me to tell you [that] you look badass in a face mask. I promised them I would tell you that.”
“Miami,” Adams added, “I told the president he looks badass in a face mask.”
Cain was at high risk due to his age (74) and his past history of cancer. And yet, Trump hasn’t even acknowledged his passing today. He’s no longer of any use to his campaign, so why bother? What a guy.
President Donald Trump said Monday he’ll resume regular coronavirus briefings as the country experiences a resurgence of cases.
“We have had this big flare up in Florida, Texas, a couple of other places,” Trump said from the Oval Office. “I’ll get involved and we’ll start doing briefings.”
“I think it’s a great way to get information out to the public,” Trump said, adding they would likely resume on Tuesday at 5 p.m. ET — the same time he typically briefed in the spring.
“We had a good slot. A lot of people were watching,” Trump said, using television ratings lingo to describe the sessions: “We had record numbers watching,” he said. “In the history of cable television there’s never been anything like it.”
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, who has aggressively pushed to reopen his state and flouted experts’ health recommendations, announced Wednesday that he is the first governor to test positive for coronavirus.
Stitt, a Republican, said at a press conference that he was tested on Tuesday and that he feels “fine,” other than being a “little bit achy.” He said he’ll be quarantining and working from home, and that he was “pretty shocked” to be the first governor to get the virus. He added that he would isolating away from his family, whom he said tested negative.
