President Trump met with restaurant and industry executives at the White House to discuss the coronavirus pandemic response and reopening the economy. The industry leaders all agreed the Paycheck Protection Program had helped their businesses and asked the administration to consider a 24-week extension to the program. The president took questions from reporters and said he was “surprised” by the statement from Attorney General Barr earlier in the day, saying he does not foresee the Justice Department probe into the origins of the Russia investigation to lead to a criminal investigation of former President Obama or former Vice President Biden. President Trump also talked about his firing of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick, saying he had the right to terminate as president. He also stated that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure against COVID-19 despite warnings from the medical community against its safety. close
