President Trump held a coronavirus task force press conference today to give updates on help going to Washington, California and New York.
During the press conference, President Trump was asked about the four Senators who are in isolation.
A reporter mentioned that Mitt Romney is in isolation and the president had a classic response:
Trump: “Romney is in isolation? Gee, That’s too bad. Go ahead.”
Reporter: “Do I detect sarcasm there, sir?”
Trump: “No, none whatsoever.”

House leader Nancy Pelosi was holding up the stimulus package for help during the coronavirus crisis because she wanted to add pork that has nothing to do with the purpose of the package.
At the beginning of the talks, Pelosi tried to add abortion funding to the bill but was caught red-handed. This is not the time to pull out a wishlist of pork to add to this important stimulus package.
Dan Bongino sent a great message to the GOP about Pelosi:
“This IS NOT the time to make this crisis worse by caving to Pelosi & her new demands for radical big government additions to the Wuhan Virus Bill. Her ridiculous proposals are shameful. She’s abusing the crisis to bankrupt the nation & push a radical agenda.”
She’s playing politics during a crisis and is trying to grandstand by putting out the statement below:
The Democrats are seeking stronger “worker protection” language and “hundreds of billions of dollars” in the supplemental spending portion of the package.
"This bill has been negotiated on a bipartisan basis
"It'd be best for the country if the House would take it up and pass it just like we did earlier this week"
Nancy Pelosi left town. Now she's threatening to blow up deal made w/Democrats. She's putting politics over people! pic.twitter.com/kSP3AoB9X2

A GOP source said Pelosi had a “laundry list” of additional requests, including election security funding. Democrats also raised wiping out $10,000 in student loan debt and a host of other issues.
This is typical of Democrats:
In contrast, President Trump is doing everything he can for all Americans:
President Trump: "For those worried and afraid, please know as long as I am your president, you can feel confident that you have a leader who will always fight for you."
