Daily update on #COVID19  in the Upper Midwest: all the other states are slowly pulling away from Minnesota in confirmed per capita cases. Default assumption has to be it’s a testing artifact, but watch this. More at @MPRnews :

Trump just sent this remarkable letter to Schumer falsely.blaming impeachment for the federal response to coronavirus New York. Also manages to slight Pence by saying he’s done a spectacular job “by almost all accounts.”

“There have been recent pronouncements that the coronavirus pandemic represents an intelligence failure…it’s letting people who ignored intelligence warnings off the hook.”

Grateful for our immigrant and refugee communities including the 27,000 DACA recipients working in our health care system. These communities are among the most marginalized and face an elevated risk, yet are on the front lines during this time of crisis.

“No wonder AOC and others are thinking about running against you in the primary. If they did, they would likely win.”

Yowza — Trump to Schumer: “No wonder AOC and others are thinking about running against you in the primary. If they did, they would likely win.”

Jared Kushner: "The President also wanted us to make sure that we think outside the box, make sure we're finding all the best thinkers in the country, making sure we're getting all the best ideas."


Scoops of the Day

We have no right to even pay respects to frontline medical workers if we can’t get them the equipment they need to stay safe and save lives. President Trump must use the full power of the Defense Production Act to meet their needs. #AMR  #FamiliesFirst 

Just spoke to my friend MBS (Crown Prince) of Saudi Arabia, who spoke with President Putin of Russia, & I expect & hope that they will be cutting back approximately 10 Million Barrels, and maybe substantially more which, if it happens, will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!

Somebody please explain to Cryin’ Chuck Schumer that we do have a military man in charge of distributing goods, a very talented Admiral, in fact. New York has gotten far more than any other State, including hospitals & a hospital ship, but no matter what, always complaining.....

Number of people who have no health insurance: KR South Korea: 0 CA Canada: 0 TW Taiwan: 0 JP Japan: 0 DE Germany: 0 SG Singapore: 0 US United States: 30,000,000 Now, more than ever, we need a universal, Medicare for All, single-payer health care system.

We need Medicare for All so that your health insurance is not tied to your job.

We need supplies. We need your help. If you can manufacture PPE I implore you to do so. NYS will pay a premium. Email Covid19supplie @esd

....have been stocked up and ready long before this crisis hit. Other states are thrilled with the job we have done. Sending many Ventilators today, with thousands being built. 51 large cargo planes coming in with medical supplies. Prefer sending directly to hospitals.

Millions of people have lost their employer-tied health care over the last two weeks because of the pandemic. It's an easy call: Re-open the health care exchanges.

The Congress has so far passed three pieces of legislation totaling over $2 trillion in emergency relief. To ensure that your tax dollars are being spent carefully & effectively, I am announcing the formation of the bipartisan House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis.


Scoops of the Week

We've seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can't afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall.

Trump, you incompetent idiot! You sent 18 tons of PPE to China early but ignored warnings & called COVID19 concerns a hoax. You've endangered doctors, nurses, aids, orderlies, & janitors - all risking their lives to save ours. Pray 4 forgiveness for the harm that you're causing!

Dr. Fauci told me today that the coronavirus could kill anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 Americans, and infect millions more. Americans. The president is tweeting about TV ratings for press conferences.

Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq. If this happens, Iran will pay a very heavy price, indeed!

This White House briefing room slide lists as "goals" 100,000 to 240,000 deaths. Breathtaking.

To each and every doctor putting his or her life at risk to save the lives of others, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are the unwavering front line soldiers, angels and heroes in this war. You make New York proud. #NationalDoctorsDay 

Flashback to last week when @maddow  claimed it was “nonsense” when President Trump said there would be a Navy Medical Ship operational in a week. The USNS Comfort arrived in New York City this morning.

The entire Reliance team has been making effective contributions in the fight against COVID-19. Be it in healthcare or assisting people, they have been active. I thank Mukesh & Nita Ambani Ji for contributing to PM-CARES and for their other work towards defeating Coronavirus.

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats delayed the Workers Help/Stimulus Bill by over a week, trying to add real “junk” into the Bill. Got some bad things, having nothing to do with those affected by the Virus, included. Republicans need their votes until we WIN BACK THE HOUSE IN 2020!
