Trump: I feel badly for the World Health Organization, but it's been a tool of China. It's been as I say totally China-centric. You take a look at everything that's happened, and I said world health organization isn't that wonderful, and then you start to see all the mistakes. They didn't want us to close our borders to China, to Wuhan.
Trump: Do you think you're getting honest numbers from these countries? Do you believe the numbers in the vast country called China and they have a certain number of cases and a certain number of deaths? Here's the story, we report everything. We're reporting the cases, and our reporting is good. We're reporting every death. In fact, I see this morning where New York added 3,000 deaths because they died and they're now saying rather than it was a heart attack, they're saying it was a heart attack caused by this. So they're adding. If you look at it, that's it.
THANK YOU.Trump just asked a reporter if she actually believes China's coronavirus numbers.— Beth Baumann (@eb454) April 15, 2020
Trump: [Congress] knows. They've been warned and they're warned right now. If they don't approve it then we're going to go this route. And we'll probably be challenged in and court and we'll see who wins. But when the court hears we aren't getting people approved as sonny would say for 2 1/2 years for a position we needed because of this crisis we needed these people before but now we really need these people.
These media liberals are falling into the trap of asking Trump questions such as about judges that are allowing him to explain to the public how grossly partisan the Democrats have been. It’s a beautiful thing.— David Limbaugh (@DavidLimbaugh) April 15, 2020
In middle of pandemic Trump threatens to adjourn congress if lawmakers don’t approve his nominees. WH says constitution allows him to do it. “I have a very strong power,” Trump says. Trump points to nominee to oversee Voice of America as if that justifies such a drastic move.— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) April 15, 2020

CNN and MSNBC have their feed of the White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing delayed by roughly 15 seconds so they can see what is said before it airs and they can cut away so viewers won't see anything that does not advance their left-wing agenda pic.twitter.com/AfVzdAnhSy— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 15, 2020
