President Donald Trump denied that sending federal agents into American cities, like Chicago and Albuquerque, to help combat rising crime is a distraction from failures to combat the coronavirus pandemic while speaking a coronavirus briefing at the White House in Washington DC on Wednesday.
At the news conference, Trump also said he was «comfortable» with his child and grandchildren going back to school.
«They (children) don't catch it (the coronavirus) easily and they don't bring it home easily, « the President said.
Trump said his administration would decide in the next 24 hours as to whether they would follow guidelines from the Washington, D.C. city government about the mandated use of masks.
Trump also blasted Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden for calling him «the first racist to be elected president.»
«I've done more for black Americans than anybody, with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln. Nobody has even been close,» Trump concluded.
