White House Scraps Today’s Briefing Of Coronavirus Task Force

The President may hold a news conference this evening to address testing for COVID-19

(Washington, DC)  —  The White House is scrapping today’s late afternoon briefing of the coronavirus task force.  Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News that there will be coronavirus briefings later this week.  She also said there “may be a new look” and a “new focus” on the briefings.

President Trump was widely criticized after comments last Thursday about disinfectants possibly being used to combat the coronavirus.   Trump walked that back on Friday, saying he was being “sarcastic.”
