Trump Changes His Tune

Last night President Donald Trump admitted the pandemic wasn’t “fading away,” as he’d previously dismissed the virus that’s now killed 142,000 Americans. In a largely scripted return to White House COVID-19 updates — reportedly prompted by flagging poll numbers — Trump warned the situation “will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better.” The message fit the day’s tally of 1,000 coronavirus deaths. Meanwhile, a nonprofit led by former CDC Director Tom Frieden reported most states aren’t sharing key outbreak data, like test turnaround time, that would be critical to tracking and controlling the virus.
