During a coronavirus briefing at the White House, President Trump showed several slides that he said demonstrated the strength of the American economy and discussed the importance of reopening schools. The president provided guidance about safely reopening and announced the administration would be providing up to 125 million reusable masks to schools. He also responded to a variety of questions regarding Joe Biden’s running mate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), a payroll tax cut, and economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. He also clarified what he meant by a tweet he sent earlier in the day referencing “the suburban housewife,” and warning that “low income housing would invade their neighborhood” if Joe Biden were elected. close
