At Sunday’s coronavirus press briefing, held in the Rose Garden of the White House in front of a smattering of reporters and government officials, all practicing social distancing, President Donald Trump made some startling announcements. In addition to backing away from his earlier proclamation that the country would be back to normal by Easter, and instead of announcing that the country would be under shelter-in-place orders through the end of April, he soberly predicted that at least 200,000 Americans might die from COVID-19 during the current pandemic, adding that the reason that number wasn’t higher was that his administration had “done a very good job.”
But the most charged moment of the press conference was when Yamiche Alcindor, the White House correspondent for PBS Newshour and a former reporter for The New York Times, asked the president why he had recently said that some state governors might not need as much medical equipment as they had requested from the federal government to fight the frighteningly rapid spread of COVID-19. (On Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel show last Thursday, Trump said: “I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators,” an apparent reference to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s recent claim that the state needed 30,000 ventilators.
