President give reassuring message to victims of virus
President Donald Trump gave a reassuring message to coronavirus affected families with a heartfelt message telling them “I love you” before admitting he doesn’t sleep at night thinking of those losing their lives to the virus.
During an ABC interview Tuesday, Trump said:
“I want to say, I love you."
“I want to say that we’re doing everything we can," he added.
"I also want to say that we’re trying to protect people over 60 years old."
"We’re trying so hard.”
The President touched on what his administration was doing to help people affected by the pandemic.
“And to the people that have lost someone, there’s nobody — I don’t sleep at night thinking about it.," he said.
"There’s nobody that’s taken it harder than me.”
The President also warned governors who are falling to take appropriate action against the virus.
Trump said he would “stop” a governor from doing something in “two seconds” if he didn’t like it.
“The governors have — I’ve given them great discretion," Trump said.
"I respect the governors, and I’ve given them great discretion,” the president added.
“If, however, I see somebody doing something that’s egregious or wrong, I will stop it in two seconds.”
Meanwhile, Trump's first daughter, Ivanka Trump, donated 400 meals to health workers on the frontline at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, New York, on Tuesday.
The president’s daughter arranged with a local deli, Anthony & Son Panini Shoppe, in Brooklyn, to deliver subs and sandwiches to the hospital, Page Six reported.
On Monday, the Trump campaign released a campaign ad vowing an "American comeback" from the pandemic.
The ad notes Trump's promise in his State of the Union address to defend America from the virus.
The video also highlights Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and the media for criticizing Trump's decision to issue a travel ban against China earlier this year.
