President Trump and members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force held a briefing on the federal government’s response to the pandemic. While the president expressed optimism that new cases were declining nationally, he said he “strongly” disagreed with Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp’s plan to reopen parts of the state’s economy later in the week. The president said it was too soon for businesses like spas, hair salons and tattoo parlors to reopen. Dr. Anthony Fauci also raised concern with Georgia’s plan to reopen. “I would advise him not to just turn the switch on and go because there is a danger of a rebound,” he said. Additionally, President Trump announced he had signed an executive order temporarily suspending immigration to the U.S. for 60 days. He said the order could be revised at any time. Reporters also asked President Trump about Rick Bright, who served as director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and claims he was pushed out by the administration for raising questions about hydroxychloroquine. “I’ve never heard of him,” the president said. “I don’t know who he is.” close
