White House Says Trump Will Give Coronavirus Briefing Hours After Cancelling Briefing




White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Monday that President Trump will hold a news conference on Monday evening to discuss new guidance on coronavirus testing, according to the White House.

“The White House has additional testing guidance and other announcements about safely opening up America again. President @realDonaldTrump will brief the nation during a press conference this evening,” McEnany wrote in a tweet Monday afternoon.

The event was added hours after Trump’s press secretary told Fox News in an interview Monday morning that there would not be a briefing Monday.



The White House issued updated guidance shortly after her tweet noting a 5 p.m. news conference in the Rose Garden.

The event was added hours after McEnany told Fox News in an interview Monday morning that there would not be a briefing Monday and that Trump would instead hold a press availability during a meeting with executives on COVID-19.

The White House then canceled the coronavirus briefing, which had been scheduled for 5 p.m. in the press briefing room.



“There will be briefings throughout other portions of the week. But these briefings are excellent. They’re a way for the president to speak directly to the American people,” McEnany said on Fox.
