ALSO WITH US ASSOCIATED PRESS WHITE HOUSE REPORTER JONATHAN LEMIER AND MARK LEIFISH >> JONATHAN, ALL EYES ON THE PRESIDENT’S ANNOUNCEMENT NOT THAT HOUSES OF WORSHIP MAY OPEN BUT THE PRESIDENT HAVING A VERY SHARP TONE AND A VERY SHARP MESSAGE IN HIS ANNOUNCEMENT TODAY, REALLY BITING, SAYING LIQUOR STORES WERE OPEN BUT HOUSES OF WORSHIP WEREN’T ESSENTIAL

WILL IT HAPPEN? >> NICOLLE, CERTAINLY A LOT OF AMERICANS HAVE BEEN VERY ANXIOUS FOR THEIR HOUSES OF WORSHIP, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR FAITH, TO REOPEN THE CDC AND THE WHITE HOUSE INDICATED TO REPORTERS THAT ANNOUNCEMENT WAS FORTHCOMING ORIGINALLY HOWEVER IT WAS GOING TO BE PART OF THE PRESS SECRETARY’S BRIEFING TODAY SLATED FOR 2:00 ONLY A FEW MINUTES’ NOTICE, THE WHITE HOUSE BLASTED OUT TO REPORTERS THE PRESIDENT WOULD BE COMING TO THE BRIEFING ROOM TO MAKE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT YOU SAW IT THERE

HE DIDN’T TAKE ANY QUESTIONS AND THE REASON BEHIND IT, BEHIND THE SCENES, NICOLLE, IT’S INDEED, AS MUCH AS IT’S ABOUT GETTING THE CHURCHES, IT’S THE POLITICS OF IT HE WANTED TO BE THE FACE OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT HE BELIEVES THIS IS POPULAR WITH HIS BASE LOT OF POLICY HE PUT FORTH IN OFFICE HAS BEEN WITH AN EYE TOWARD THE RELIGIOUS CONSERVATIVE HE BELIEVES THEY NEED THEIR SUPPORT IN GREATER NUMBERS THIS TIME AROUND

THIS WASN’T GOING TO BE HE WOULD ALLOW THE PRESS SECRETARY OR THE MEMBERS OF TASK FORCE ANNOUNCE HE WANTED TO DO IT HIMSELF LOT OF THE DETAILS ARE STILL WORKING OUT A SCRAMBLE HERE THE PRESIDENT SAID, CHURCHES AND OTHER PLACES OF WORSHIP NEEDED TO BE OPEN THIS WEEKEND, HE WOULD IN HIS WORDS, OVERRULE OR OVERRIDE GOVERNORS

NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT THAT MEANS AS MUCH AS THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN THE CHEERLEADER FROM THE WHITE HOUSE FOR THE ECONOMY AND FOR THESE STATES TO REOPEN THE MOMENT TO MOMENT, DAY BY DAY, MECHANICAL DECISIONS, THOSE ARE BEING MADE BY THE STATES THEMSELVES AND THEIR GOVERNORS >> DR RIMOIN, I UNDERSTAND AGREE THAT FAITH IS ESSENTIAL, BUT HOUSES OF WORSHIP ARE NOT STRUCTURED YET IN A SAFE, SOCIALLY DISTANCE WAY WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE TO CHURCHES ON SYNAGOGUES WHO HEED THE PRESIDENT’S ORDER? >> IT’S VERY IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO THINK ABOUT SAFETY

WE ALL AGREE THAT THERE’S SO MUCH AT STAKE FOR PEOPLE HERE IT’S AN EMOTIONAL DECISION, IT’S — IT’S A DECISION OF FAITH, DECISIONS THAT ARE RELATED TO HOW PEOPLE VIEW THEMSELVES IN THE CONTEXT OF THE WORLD BUT WE ALSO HAVE TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE AND WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT THE RISK OF CONTRACTING THE VIRUS IN PLACES WHERE YOU HAVE POOR VENTILATION, WHERE YOU HAVE CROWDING, WHERE YOU’RE IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH OTHER PEOPLE, WHERE YOU CAN’T SOCIAL DISTANCE THAT WE’RE AT RISK AND SO I WOULD — MY ADVICE TO PEOPLE WOULD BE TO THINK ABOUT THE SCIENCE, TO THINK ABOUT PUBLIC HEALTH AND TO BALANCE THAT WEAR A MASK, TO BE IN VENTILATED AREAS, TO MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING

THESE ARE THE KEYS TO KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE AND WHETHER OR NOT THINGS OPEN OR THEY CLOSE, IF WE OBEY THE LAWS OF SCIENCE AND PUBLIC HEALTH, THAT’S HOW WE KEEP PEOPLE SAFETY >> DOCTOR, WHAT’S YOUR FEELING OF THIS REPORTING, FROM THE WASHINGTON POST AND "THE NEW YORK TIMES" THAT DONALD TRUMP’S PUBLIC UTTERANCE ABOUT THE VIRUS ARE NOW TIED DIRECTLY TO A VERY, VERY TRANSPARENT STRATEGY OF HIS OWN RE-ELECTION, TO PUT HIMSELF ON THE SIDE OF BULLISH OPENINGS IN DEFIANCE OF HIS OWN CDC AND PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS >> YOU KNOW, I SPENT MY LIFE WORKING IN EPIDEMICS AND POLITICS AND EPIDEMICS AND IN THIS CASE A PANDEMIC, ARE, ARE INSEPARABLE AND UNFORTUNATELY THAT’S WHAT WE’RE SEEING ROLL OUT HERE ANY PLACE THAT WE HAVE SEEN UNCERTAINTY IN TERMS OF MESSAGING, IN TERMS OF WHAT THE SCIENCE TELLS US, WE SEE POLITICS FILLING THOSE GAPS AND THE PROBLEM IS, THAT WE’RE DEALING WITH A KNOW VALUE VIRUS NEW TO HUMANITY AND WE’RE SEEING POLITICAL RHETORIC COME IN IN IN EVERY PLACE

WE CAN’T HAVE POLITICAL RHETORIC BE THE BASIS OF HOW WE MAKE PUBLIC HEALTH DECISIONS WE CAN’T LET POLITICS INFECT PUBLIC HEALTH AND THAT’S OUR BIG PROBLEM HERE >> MARK, I JUST HEARD THE BEST POLITICAL ANALYSIS FROM A DOCTOR, I DON’T MEAN TO RAISE THE BAR FOR YOU TO NOW JUMP OVER, LET ME GIVE YOU SOME FOX NEWS POLLS TO WORK WITH — THIS IS NEW, WE JUST FOUND OUT IN WEEK SEVEN OF THE PANDEMIC, A BRAND-NEW DISEASE THAT’S VERY SCARY IN CHILDREN, WE STILL ARE LEARNING, AN UPDATE TODAY ABOUT SURFACES NOT PERHAPS BEING AS DANGEROUS — I MEAN, THERE’S A HEADLINE EVERY DAY WHAT THIS VIRUS IS AND ISN’T, I THINK IT AFFECTS THE POLL NUMBERS THIS IS FROM FOX NEWS

MAJOR PROBLEMS IN DEALING WITH COVID-19 63% THINK A LACK OF AVAILABLE TESTING IS A PROBLEM FOR DEALING WITH THE PANDEMIC 61%, LACK OF A CLEAR FEDERAL 61%, LACK OF A CLEAR FEDERAL PLAN TO DEAL WITH COVID-19 THERE ARE STILL MORE PEOPLE WORRIED ABOUT A LACK OF THINGS THAT DONALD TRUMP IS SQUARELY IN CHARGE OF, TESTING SUPPLIES AND A FEDERAL PLAN AND REALLY A NUMBER SMALLER THAN A TRUMP BASE IS WORRIED ABOUT PERSONAL FREEDOM AND THAT’S 100% TRUE WE TALK ABOUT THIS — PEOPLE TEND TO TALK ABOUT THIS AS A MESSAGING AND POLITICAL PHENOMENA

BUT AS WE’RE SEEING IN SOME OF THESE NUMBERS, PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING THIS AS AN INCERTAINTY IN THEIR DAY-TO-DAY LIVES THERE’S GENUINE ANXIETY AROUND THIS VIRUS THAT’S AFFECTING NOT ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST PEOPLE OR PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST JOBS THIS ISN’T A TRUMP-ERA STORY THAT PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING ON TV FOR THE MOST PART, LIKE THE UKRAINE SCANDAL AND IMPEACHMENT AND RUSSIA, THESE — DONALD TRUMP IS A TV STAR AND HE’S SEEMINGLY SPECIALLY OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS HE’S KIND OF TREATED THIS AS A MESSAGING AND A TV STORY BUT REALLY, THE CRUX OF THIS STORY AND THE EMOTIONAL IMPACT OF THIS STORY IS IN THE DAY-TO-DAY OF PEOPLE’S LIVES YOU CAN’T CONTROL THAT FROM A POLITICAL STRATEGY >> WE COVERED THE IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION HEARINGS INTO THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE IT WAS ONLY THE THIRD TIME IN OUR COUNTRY’S HISTORY THAT HAS HAPPENED

A STORY THAT MOST PEOPLE ONLY RELATED TO TO THE DEGREE THEY SAW IT ON TV OR READ ABOUT IT OR LEARNED ABOUT IT COVID IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE ARE LIVING I GOT INTO THE CAR, I DIDN’T HAVE MY MASK I WENT BACK UPSTAIRS TO GET IT PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN THE FEAR OF THE PANDEMIC BUT ALSO THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING A GOOD PERSON

DONALD TRUMP HAS DEALT HIMSELF OUT OF THE PANDEMIC CONVERSATION A LITTLE BIT, HE WANTS TO BE DEALT IN THE ECONOMY CONVERSATION, DON’T YOU THINK MOST PEOPLE VIEW THEM AS COMPLETELY BRAIDED TOGETHER? >> I THINK THEY DO AND IT’S UNCLEAR IF HE ACTUALLY WANTS TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE ECONOMY CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW, GIVEN WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH THE ECONOMY AND THERE ARE WEEKLY, YOU KNOW, JOB NUMBERS THAT ARE SCARY I MEAN, IF YOU SORT OF LOOK AT IT, WHY HAS DONALD TRUMP BEEN A MAJOR — HE’S ALWAYS THE MAJOR POINT OF DISCUSSION BECAUSE HE’S THE PRESIDENT AND HE’S DONALD TRUMP THE QUESTION, DOES HE TAKE TRUMP THE QUESTION, DOES HE TAKE THIS ANTI-MALARIAAL DRUG, THESE ARE TRUMP-ERA ISSUES THEY’RE INTERESTING BUT THESE ARE REAL-LIFE MATTERS FOR MOST PEOPLE YEAH, IT SHOWS YOU THE PLAYBOOK THAT HE HAS RIDEN HIS CAMPAIGN
