WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is pushing back against criticism that his administration isn’t doing enough to meet the coronavirus threat.
Trump held a news conference late Wednesday to talk about what the U.S. is doing to prepare for the virus.
On Capitol Hill, lawmakers are calling for much more money than the $2.5 billion the White House has requested.
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer has asked for $8.5 billion.
Trump’s news conference was held at the White House with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
