Today, newyorkcityvoices.org would like to introduce to you THURSDAY UPDATE: President Trump portion of task force briefing at White House. Following along are instructions in the video below:
“Begin by saying that we just completed a meeting with the secretary of treasury steve steve minuchin and secretary of transportation elaine chao on proposals regarding the airlines and the business and we re very working. Very closely with a lot of different people will be probably putting out a proposal and giving them some of the details from some of the very powerful details over the weekend. It s moving along quickly. The airline business has been hit very hard as everybody knows and we are going to be in a position to do a lot to help them so that they keep their employees and they save their businesses.
And that ll be taking place. I think you can say over the weekend. We may even have discussions with some of the airlines or all of the airlines over the weekend and i think it s going to be a very acceptable package. It s a very big package and a very acceptable package.
It ll be good for our country good for the airlines good for a lot of people likewise. I just spoke with the president of russia vladimir putin. And the king of saudi arabia. King salman and we had a big talk as to oil production and opec and making it so that our industry.
Does well and the oil industry does better than it s doing right now. It s the numbers are so low that there ll be layoffs all over the world they ll be certainly layoffs in this country. We don t want that to happen. We built a great great energy business in the united states.
So we have tens of thousands of jobs. We had a very good talk we ll see what happens. But as you know opec met today and i would say they re getting close to a deal we ll soon find out so that was a conversation. We just had so we ve had a busy hour and a half and let me begin by expressing my sincere gratitude to the american people millions of americans are making profound and difficult sacrifices.
There lives because they know it will save the lives of countless others and that s exactly what it s doing you see what s happening. And where we are where we stand and hopefully we re going to be opening up. We can quote opening. Very very very very soon.
I hope together our people are writing one of the most noble chapters in the proud history of our nation. Americans are also encouraged to learn that boris johnson. Prime minister has been moved out of intensive care. That s a tremendous statement and we continue to pray for him.
And his fast recovery. That s a very positive development as the new york metropolitan area continues its battle against the outbreak. The full power of the federal government is there to support them as you know the javits. Center has now been fully converted into a 3000.
Bid hospital. One of the largest anywhere in the country and by the incredible professionals. I have to say the the corps of engineers. What they can do is just incredible.
They ve done a fantastic job in their building nationwide. 21 temporary hospitals and care facilities adding 17000. Hospital beds. And they did that all within a very short period of time.
It s incredible. What they ve done army corps of engineers and fema has been fantastic our sweeping airlift operation to keep doctors. And nurses applied with protective equipment project. Air bridge continues to expand with more than 24 flights already completed and 49 additional flights now scheduled in the near future.
So that s been very successful in that gear. And those outfits are being handed out as they arrived they re going directly to point the american medical system continues to perform beyond our highest expectations. Reminding us that the united states is blessed with the most advanced health care and the most skilled health care workers anywhere in the planet. Other countries are looking to what we re doing and our testing.
Operation has now become far and away the most sophisticated and the best anywhere and we want to thank all of the heroes or the frontlines as they fight to save american lives. We re at the top of the hill pretty sure we re at the top of the hill and now we re going downward in some cases. We ve already started that process earlier today. I spoke with hundreds of mental health leaders and advocates from around the country to discuss the vital work and the vital work.
They re doing we had the top doctors in the country. Some international doctors mental health a big factor not only as the virus inflicted immense physical suffering on many people but also mental and emotional suffering as well even though we re staying physically apart. No american is alone and we re all in this together. But the mental health doctors and experts the very great call.
It was a very interesting call they re working very hard. We re also seeing encouraging signs in our race to develop breakthrough treatments and therapies. Pfizer revealed today that it has found a promising new treatment. That might prevent the virus from replicating and that hopes it hopes to begin testing in clinical trials.
Very soon. It s going to be very. Very soon. They have great great feelings for this particular therapy and they think that a lot of good things are happening through the fda s coronavirus treatment acceleration program.
19 therapies and treatments are now being tested and 26. More are in the active planning or clinical trials. So we have 19 therapies being tested currently and 26. More are in the active planning for clinical trials.
That s a big statement. That s a lot trials for gilead anti rival drug remedy. Severe continued and the company has also expanded emergency use for new patients getting good early results by the way the companies that manufacture hydroxychloroquine are massively ramping up production. As you know many people are recommending strongly.
Z. Pak. Beheaded. The z pak.
And also zinc and the federal government continues to build our stockpiles and distribute millions of doses for doctors to use as they see fit and i m pleased to inform you we re just having a lot of good things are happening. But we ll have to see how that all works out. But we have we ve purchased and we have stockpiled millions and millions of doses and we re distributing it some states wanted very badly michigan. We just sent a lot to michigan and other areas reporting today that we passed 2 million tests completed in the united states first time most anywhere in the country it s a milestone for our country it s a milestone anywhere.
Nobody s done anywhere close are some tests are highly sophisticated and highly accurate at the same time. We re making important progress on the economic front of this war and a few moments secretary of labor eugene scalia will explain new steps that we re taking to it your american workers swiftly receive unemployment and paid leave benefits and that employers protect the health and safety of all workers. Including essential workers on the job working. Very very closely with workers and with employers to provide for the economic.
Relief the federal reserve announced this morning that it will provide up to 23 trillion dollars in support to businesses states and local governments six hundred billion dollars in loans will be available for mid sized businesses with up to ten thousand employees and five hundred billion dollars will be available for states counties with over two million residents and cities with a population of over 1 million. My administration is also working with congress to replenish the very successful incredibly successful the way it s going paycheck protection program. Which is allowing hundreds of thousands of small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll meaning it ll keep those businesses open. We need both democrats and republicans to come together to get this legislation complete.
And it looks like it s on its way. But we need both and it should be for people that are working for the workers and if you look and you see we have a lot of people that are affected by that and it s a very positive development so we have to get a bipartisan approval of that and hopefully that ll happen today. The department of education is also announcing the availability of more than six billion dollars in emergency grant funding to assist college students impacted by the cancellation of classes and the suspension of housing a lot of people had a lot of things suspended housing is one of them previously we waive student loan payments for six months so student loan payments have been waived for six months and we ll discuss it after that may go further. Although this medical war has separated our citizens for a period of time.
It s also united our entire nation. I think i can say like almost never before americans are moving forward with common purpose and shared resolve determined to vanquish the virus and lift our nation to even greater heights. We are supremely confident in the magnificent future that awaits the american people and with that before i invite our vice president and our great vice president and jeanne scalia to speak we ll take a few questions and then i m going back into negotiations on oil and on airlines. Yeah please compensation with president putin in the key you had a very good conversation did you organize that fall.
And do they understand the problems. We causing. Yeah. Yeah.
You know there s a lot of there s a lot of there s so much production. Nobody even knows what to do with it that s how it s working and saudi arabia. And as you know russia it s well known that were producing a lot and they were perhaps fighting with each other over the production and the amount of oil being produced and frankly. There s not enough room to even store it our storage is now full gonna be very soon our strategic national storage is i said.
There s a great time to fill it up load it up with oil that frankly is at pricing that nobody s ever seen before i don t think we ve seen this probably since the 1950s that was with big dollars. So we ll see what happens. The conversation was very good they re getting close to a deal that s opec and many other countries outside of opec and we ll see what happens very good we had a very good call. I think it was a very good call.
We re gonna see what happens. But it was a very good go they ll probably announce something either today or tomorrow one way or the other could be good could be not so good. But i think one way the other go ahead to administration discuss the possibility of reopening. The country.
When the administration does not have an adequate nationwide testing system for this virus. Don t you need a nationwide system for the virus. Before you real we have a great testing system. We have the best right now the best testing system in the world.
But there are certain sections right now there are certain sections in the country that are in phenomenal shape already other sections are coming online. Other sections are going down and we in addition to that are giving out millions of tests and every day. We re doing it exponentially. We re picking up and what we ll be doing in the very near future is going to certain areas of our country and do massive testing.
It s not necessary. But it would be a good thing to have to make sure people are safe going back to work you don t want to send people back to the workplace. Want to have it and we re going to see if we have it did you need it no is it a nice thing to do yes. We re talking about 325 million people.
And that s not going to happen. As you can imagine and nope. It would never happen with anyone else either other countries do it. But they do it in a limited form will probably be the leader of the pack.
Please what do you say to the 16 million americans. More than 60 million americans who have lost their jobs in the last three weeks. Well. I think the economy is going to do very well now that s just my feeling.
It s a strong feeling. I ve had good proper feelings about a lot of things over the years and i think we re going to do well. We re doing very we re at the lower end of the curb in terms of death. Which is a terrible word a terrible dark word that we ve experienced like nobody has ever seen before in this country.
I mean we re we re have numbers that are terrible. But when you look at the lower levels of a hundred lower prediction levels of a hundred hundred and twenty thousand to two hundred and twenty thousand or if we did nothing up to 22. Million people we re looking at a much lower level than the level of i hope than the level of a hundred thousand so we re gonna see we re going to have to you can never look you can never do anything about the people that lost their loved ones and loved the loss their friends and i mean the great friendships and i m not sure a lot of people will ever be the same. But i think our country from an economic standpoint will end up being stronger than ever we have tremendous stimulus.
We have tremendous stimulus plans we have things in the works that are going to really i think far the country. I think that what s going to happen is we re going to have a big bounce rather than a small bounce. But we will be back and i think honestly i think our country is going to be back from an economic standpoint. Again you can never replace the people that were lost and to their families certainly you can never do a thing like that but we will have succeeded in many ways hopefully keeping the number way below our minimum numbers and also from an economic standpoint.
You know we met with the mental health people today and that takes it from this is taking a tremendous toll mentally on a lot of people and i think we re going to open up strong. I think we re going to open up very successfully and i d like to say even more successfully than before please would you want to see surprised. If you wanted it 30 40. 50.
Dollars. A beer well i i want to see it where there s a certain market. But i also don t want i don t want to see it where people have no idea you know we re opening up. We ll be opening up areas for storage of oil massive areas for storage of oil.
Because oil today is not selling. And what happened is the virus knocked out 40 of the market immediately. You know that you know the number forty percent. Now there was a lot of oil.
But it was very controllable all of a sudden they lost 40 percent you look at the road. You look at the car. You look at what s going on there s nobody driving there s no reason for it right now that ll start coming back. But we are storing millions of barrels of oil that nobody thought would even be possible.
Frankly ships turned out to be a good business for some people because they re filling up tankers. Sending them out to sea and not saying. Where to go they re just sitting out there loaded up with oil. So we want to save our energy in this country.
We want to make sure that our energy companies businesses and employees workers remain strong. So that s how i m involved and i think that s gonna happen so right now. If you look you re probably talking 23 25. If they announced a deal we can get it up we need a minimum number so the companies don t go out of business.
So they re not gonna lay off all of these energy workers who are important to our country. And you know we re now energy independent. We could do something well we only used our oil. But i think the long term benefit is to be able to just go with the market.
And it s gonna work out it s all gonna work out if you looked at three weeks ago. As you know as we talked about it three weeks ago and two weeks ago. This was catastrophic. I think it s really hitting bottom and i think that i mean we ve had a bottom.
But now at twenty three dollars and twenty five dollars and probably heading up at the same time we save our energy and we also produce great cheap energy and we save our jobs. We re telling us their banks. Don t know how to access this money they re trying to apply they can t figure it out so where does the fault line is a lot of the banks. I don t think there s a fault.
Which they re doing record numbers of dollars. They re dealing with many community banks they re dealing with bank of america citibank a lot of wells fargo as you know is very much involved and they re dealing with the bankers can t go that quickly. But i m hearing. It s a very very successful rollout.
They didn t want changes in applications they want changes in loan requirements etc. But they are taking billions and billions of dollars worth of loans and in the very near future the banks will be relieving the money they ll be paying out the money kept pleasing the usmc. The auto industry is hurting these days are you ready to postpone the yeah. The deal is with canada with gillis is mexico we have a deal and obviously the deal is different from the standpoint.
That production will be lower. But we have a deal it s a signed deal it s a deal that say one of the worst deals that we ve ever had was nafta one of the worst trade deals ever made by any country anywhere. And we ll be terminating that and the new deal is a great deal for our country. So that s something now again.
We get hit by the virus and we ll see where that all goes. But certainly car production is going to be down for a little while but ultimately good for our farmers great for our farmers. We ll be helping our farmers by the way we have money going out to our farmers in the pretty near future having to do with you see what s happened farmers got hurt very badly by all of this people are eating less from the standpoint. That there s no restaurants are open no businesses are open no hotels are open.
They ll start to come back. But we re gonna be helping out our farmers. Yep philip wagner. Real flair politics earlier.
You mentioned project. Sky bridge. And we re hearing that through that project a lot of the ppe that was sent out to other countries is coming back to this country do you do you know when we ll be able to bring a majority of that back and then are you frustrated that us aid allowed a lot of that aid to go out the door in the first place. I m not because we re we re in very good shape.
You ll be speaking with mike pence about this and a little while you look at the hospitals. You look at what s going on i spoke to yesterday. I spoke with the governor of louisiana. I m saying do you think we need that extra thousand beds that were in the process of building and we are really in good shape.
You re not hearing people in needing ventilators much in fact we re going to start helping other countries with ventilators. We re going to end up having a lot of ventilators for future should something happen for hospitals ideally to keep and have but no i think we re in very very good shape. We have calls with governor s all the time and the governor s in very good shape. Now we have helped we have sent billions and billions and billions of dollars between ventilators equipment protective equipment masks.
We have 500 million masks coming 500 million from one group five hundred it ll be three hundred million and two hundred million over a short period of time. No i think we re in very good shape. Please president speaking of. Testing some.
Experts including scott got we have talked about 750000. Tests. Per week being needed before the economy is open can you address that do you agree with those numbers. If not how many per week.
Do you think we should have before that copies in the word needed because i don t think it s needed. But i think we re going to try and hit a number like that that s a very high number. But we re going to be trying to hit it and we probably might be able to do that please go ahead. Thank you.
Mr. President today. The democrats pushed for more rescue money for states and hospitals. Which are complaining that they needed to fight the corona virus pandemic do you think hospitals and states need this money will you so i do and i do support something.
But i support it for the next phase. It s much simpler in the next phase. Whether that phase is infrastructure or whatever so i m going to leave you now with mike pence and with eugene scalia and if you would i look forward to seeing you tomorrow. We ll see you tomorrow.
We have a lot of i think a lot of very big news to report. We ve had a tremendous day between i believe what s happening with the energy industry and i believe what s happening with airlines. I look forward to seeing you thank you very much everybody. ” .
