President Trump gave an update on the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic. He spoke about the improving COVID-19 numbers across the country, getting kids back to school, and the ongoing coronavirus relief legislation being negotiated on Capitol Hill. He said if a deal could be reached, he would explore executive actions, especially to help those facing the threat of eviction. When asked about his considering of the White House as the venue for his Republican National Convention acceptance speech, despite Senator John Thune (R-SD) saying it would be illegal to do so because of the Hatch Act, President Trump responded, “Well, it is legal. There is no Hatch Act, because it doesn’t pertain to the president.” close
