Trump To Address Response To Coronavirus

Under mounting criticism for the government's handling of the coronavirus outbreak, President Trump announced Wednesday that he will hold a news conference to defend the administration's response to the crisis. Despite stepped-up warnings from health officials that an outbreak is imminent in the U.S. and despite the recent sell-off on Wall Street in reaction to the global epidemic, the president has continued to project unwavering optimism that the country remains safe. "USA in great shape!," he wrote in a Wednesday tweet. "By the way, we have not had one death. Let's keep it that way!" The president is expected to speak at 6:30 p.m. ET. You can watch his remarks here: Trump's tweets came hours before officials disclosed a 60th case of the COVID-19 disease in the United States. That number includes 42 people who were quarantined and repatriated after traveling on the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan. Trump also lashed out at news outlets, saying, "Low Ratings Fake News MSDNC

'Gives Me Hope': How Low-Paid Workers Rose Up Against Stagnant Wages

Kim Thomas felt drawn to being a home health aide after caring for her own ailing mother. Human dignity, she says, can be simple, like a bath and a favorite snack. When Thomas first started visiting homes to care for patients, she made $7 an hour. That was in North Carolina about 16 years ago. Her pay inched up over time, to $10.50. To try to make ends meet, she sometimes would work through the night, dozing in patients' homes. That's when Thomas, 55, discovered and joined the Fight for $15 movement, which had galvanized workers around the U.S. to march and rally for higher pay. Initially, in 2012, it started with mainly fast-food and retail workers. But within years, the campaign drew in low-wage workers from all over, with jobs in airports , child and health care, even universities. It grew into one of the largest waves of labor activism in recent history. And it was unusual. Though rallies were funded and organized by labor unions — including the prominent Service Employees

Trump White House Resists Calls To Appoint A Coronavirus Czar

As fears spread of a wider coronavirus outbreak in the U.S., experts in global health pandemics as well as some of President Trump's leading political adversaries contend that the federal government's response may be lacking a key figure: a coronavirus czar. "The Trump administration must appoint a point-person—a czar—to implement a real plan to manage the coronavirus: an independent, non-partisan, global health expert with real expertise," Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer declared Tuesday in a floor speech. "Somebody who is a scientist, who knows these issues, and can coordinate the myriad of federal agencies to fight the fight and prevent American lives from being lost." Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has been leading the Trump administration's coronavirus task force since it was announced in late January. Azar, a 52-year-old lawyer and former drug company executive, is the only member of Trump's Cabinet on the 12-member force. Some experts question whether Azar
