What to know about the Coronavirus Task Force briefing: 4/3/20







The fundamental pillars of Donald Trump’s presidency — a hot economy, strong job growth and a rocking stock market — are all being smashed to splinters by the ravaging coronavirus, which has shuttered much of the nation and now officially ended a streak of 113 months of job gains dating back to the end of the Great Recession a decade ago.

The latest numbers out Friday showed a loss of 701,000 jobs in March and the unemployment rate rising to 4.4 percent from a 50-year low of 3.5 percent. But the figures, though higher than expected, were just a small taste of the nightmare ahead.

“People Go Before Money. This Is About Saving Lives,” Says San Juan Mayor on Pandemic in Puerto Rico







Puerto Rico announced a record $787 million financial package to fight the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic Monday, as the island’s death toll hits two with 39 cases reported. The pandemic follows a series of devastating earthquakes in Puerto Rico earlier this year and comes as the island continues to deal with fallout from Hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico’s infrastructure and killed at least 3,000. “One of the things that I think is evident, with the Trump administration and FEMA, we have to continue to remind them time and time again that we are people and that we deserve to be treated with the same sense of justice, urgency and dignity as anybody else,” says our guest, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.

What to know about the Coronavirus Task Force briefing: 3/24/20







President Donald Trump on Wednesday clashed again with reporters at one of his coronavirus task force briefings at the White House, hours after he complained that critical media coverage of his desire to reopen parts of the country by Easter was intended to hurt his reelection chances.

But apart from that confrontation, the normally combative president seemed eager to play nice, paying compliments to his usual political rivals while pulling punches on China. Here are some of the top moments from Wednesday’s press briefing.
