In the Oval Office, around 11:30 am ET president Donald Trump began his meeting with the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, and officials.
In an event only reserved for the pool of White House press briefing and not an open press conference, Trump praised numerous times to DeSantis for doing a “spectacular job in Florida,” and ensuring that the governor “enjoys great popularity”.
“And that’s for a reason… you are doing a very good job,” said Trump on DeSantis.

Also asked Trump if he was “warned” about the threat of coronavirus in January and February, the president responded that he would “have to check” dates. “Whether by luck, talent or anything else, we saved thousands of lives,” said Trump.
