President Trump takes bold actions to protect the American people from the Coronavirus pandemic.
President Trump and his Administration has remained in constant contact with global, national, state, and local agencies to coordinate our country’s response to this crisis.
President Trump is utilizing the full power and available resources of the federal government and private industries to keep America’s response to coronavirus ahead of the international curve.
Unfortunately, Europe hesitated to take the bold and decisive actions taken by President Trump when he limited travel from China and other Asian nations:
As a result, the President is suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for thirty days, beginning on Friday.
This travel restriction will not apply to the United Kingdom.
The Administration will reevaluate each country’s travel restriction with regards to the actions they take to limit the virus’ spread in their nations.
The President urged all workers who feel sick to stay home from work, and outlined his economic plan to ensure they do not suffer under this international outbreak.
President Trump has taken bold action to support America’s workers and businesses, including taking unprecedented actions to relieve Americans who are ill, quarantined, or acting as caregivers for others.
President Trump authorized the Small Business Administration to provide capital and liquidity to small businesses with economic, low interest loans, providing $50 billion in relief.
The President also took Executive action to defer tax payments for businesses and individuals negatively impacted by the virus, providing $200 billion in relief.
In addition to calling on Congress to extend the aforementioned relief, the President is calling on Congress to provide immediate payroll tax relief.
Thanks to President Trump, no nation is more prepared than the United States:
This robust economy provides America with a flexibility to respond to this outbreak that other nations lack—our banks are strong and unemployment remains low.
The President and his Administration is cutting harmful, bureaucratic red tape to make anti-viral medicines available to the public.
President Trump secured guarantees from insurers that they will waive co-pays, extend coverage, and ensure there is no surprise billing for individuals seeking testing or treatment for coronavirus.
The President signed an $8.3 billion funding bill for vaccines, treatment, medical supplies, and testing increases.
President Trump signed the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act of 2019, reauthorizing programs that ensure the Nation is prepared for, and equipped to respond to, public health emergencies like coronavirus.
This is not a time for partisanship—it is a time to unite and to rise to this challenge like previous Americans have done throughout the history of our great Republic.
