Trump on Tuesday downplayed coronavirus concerns a day after the White House requested $2.5 billion in funding to deal with the epidemic.
Cryin’ Chuck Schumer is complaining, for publicity purposes only, that I should be asking for more money than $2.5 Billion to prepare for Coronavirus. If I asked for more he would say it is too much. He didn’t like my early travel closings. I was right. He is incompetent!
