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.

Trump to chilled press pool in the Rose Garden: "Is anybody freezing? It's very cold out here...so we can leave early, right?"

I submit that he moved the briefings outside on purpose.

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.

Trump makes clear that the feds are going to back up state governors so they can open their states as they see fit.

There was some good news out of New York today. Gov. Cuomo said the health care situation has "stabilized" to the point where they can now send some ventilators to other states in need.

Paycheck plan going "so smooth, so beautiful" - Trump

LOL

but notes that Democrats are trying to gum up the works.

Trump regrets that even the Paycheck plan is becoming a partisan issue.

Heeeere we go again.

Trump: "I'm sure people will be very happy to get a big, fat, beautiful check and my name is on it."

Trump would not engage in rumors about delays in IRS check mailing due to his name being added to stimulus checks
