President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to update the country about the future of the Wuhan coronavirus task force. 

Trump's comments come one day after Vice President Mike Pence, who has been leading the task force for months, said it could be wrapped up by Memorial Day. Ongoing management of the crisis will be delegated to federal government agencies and states. 

"I think we’re starting to look at the Memorial Day window, early June window as a time when we could begin to transition back to having our agencies begin to manage, begin to manage our national response in a more traditional manner," Pence told reporters. "It really is all a reflection of the tremendous progress we’ve made as a country.  The President stood up the White House Coronavirus Task Force to marshal, in January, to marshal a national response." 

"And as I’ve said before, as we continue to practice social distancing and states engage in safe and responsible reopening plans, I truly believe, and the trend lines support it, that we could be in a very different place," he continued.
