Trump admitted at the White House that he was taking his own precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus. “I haven’t touched my face in weeks,” he said. “In weeks. I miss it.”
Coronavirus task force leader Dr. Deborah Birx encouraged everyone to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with soap or using hand sanitizers.
The president met with airline executives at the White House to discuss the precautions they were taking to prevent the spread of the virus and keep customers and crew members safe.
“I think where these people are flying, it’s safe to fly,” Trump said.
The coronavirus outbreak is being “weaponised” by the media to bring down Donald Trump when in fact it is simply a version of the “common cold”, the conservative radio host and presidential medal of freedom recipient Rush Limbaugh claimed on Monday.
His comments were widely condemned: more than 80,000 people are known to have contracted the virus worldwide and 2,700 are known to have died. Authorities are struggling to cope in China, Iran, Italy and Tenerife.
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg once told President Trump “yes, Donald, I do love you,” according to a resurfaced video clip from 2016.
Bloomberg, who is among the Democratic presidential candidates running to challenge Trump in November, was speaking at Oxford’s Saïd Business School about a month after the president was elected in November 2016.
The president told Bloomberg that he had seen his speech at the Democratic National Convention that July in Philadelphia in which Bloomberg was highly critical of Trump.
“But you really do love me, don’t ya?” Bloomberg recalled Trump asking him. “And I said, ‘Yes, Donald, I do love you, I just disagree with everything you’ve ever said.’”
George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist, has said that Mark Zuckerberg and Donald Trump appear to have struck a “mutual assistance arrangement” that will help the US president “get re-elected”, referencing Facebook’s willingness to continue publishing political adverts.
In a letter written to the Financial Times, Mr Soros accused the Facebook owner of “obfuscating the facts” after he argued for greater regulation of the internet last Saturday.
“Even if I’m not going to agree with every regulation in the near term, I do think it’s going to be the thing that helps creates trust and better governance of the internet and will benefit everyone, including us over the long term,” Mr Zuckerberg told an audience at the Munich Security Conference.
