President Trump called-out the mainstream media’s “dishonest” coverage of his administration’s response to the global Coronavirus outbreak Thursday; saying members of the media are openly “siding with China.”
“It amazes me when I read the things I read. It amazes me when I read the New York Times. I know the truth, people out there really don’t know the truth… They use different slogans and different concepts for me every week, trying to catch something. Last week it was ‘Chaos,’” said the President. “You see me. I have no chaos. I’m the one telling everyone to be calm.”
“There’s no chaos in the White House. It’s Fake News. It’s corrupt news. They write stories without calling anybody… They’re very dishonest. They are siding with China,” he added.

President Trump confirmed Thursday morning the FDA’s rapid approval of a drug called ‘Chloroquine’ to be prescribed to help treat patients suffering from the Coronavirus.
While far from a cure or vaccine, the treatment can help reduce symptoms and suffering for those with the illness.
TRUMP: The FDA has approved Chloroquine to be prescribed to help treat Coronavirus.

“A drug called ‘Chloroquine’ is a common malaria drug. It’s also a drug used for strong arthritis…. It’s been around for a long time, and it’s very powerful. We know that if things don’t go as planned it’s not going to kill anybody. When you go with a brand new drug you don’t know what’s going to happen,” said the President.
“It’s shown very encouraging results. We’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately. That’s where the FDA has been so great. It’s been approved. They took it down from many months to immediately,” he added.

AOC: Virus Relief Must Include Universal Income, Medicaid Expansion, Mortgage Suspension, Paid Leave, More…
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued her list of priorities in any potential Coronavirus relief package Tuesday; saying the proposal must include programs like Universal Basic Income (UBI), Medicaid expansion, and more.
“This is unacceptable. Trump is using this public health crisis as an opportunity to push tax cuts and corporate bailouts. This is an emergency. We need to help vulnerable people & small biz now w/ paid leave, extended unemployment, UBI, Medicaid expansion,&mortgage suspensions,” she posted on Twitter.
Expanding small biz loans is an acceptable consideration- but we must avoid allowing this crisis to put millions of people in insurmountable debt.
Checks to people are good and I applaud the proposal, but it’s not enough. But we need payment suspensions to get people through.
