What Trump Has Done So Far in Response to the COVID-19 Crisis

Here are only some of the things President Donald Trump has done during a health crisis that’s changed how we interact with our fellow Americans and the world.

In addition to signing legislation to provide $8.3 billion in response to the crisis that began in China and spread across the globe, the president signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to help families and businesses at this crucial time.

President Trump also issued travel restrictions, which critics complained about even as the rest of the world followed suit. He expanded airport travel screenings and closed the borders with Canada and Mexico for non-essential travel. The president also urged Americans to avoid international travel.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is expanding testing, and the president signed bills to allow free testing for Americans. States, empowered to authorize tests made and used by their labs, are required to report data to public health officials.

Small businesses have access to disaster loans due to closures.

President Trump called for calm and restraint as Americans stock up on supplies, ensuring the country that he’s working with businesses like grocery stores to keep products on the shelves.

Taxpayers still must filed returns by April 15 but don’t have to pay until July 15 (without penalties and interest). The government also waived interest on government-backed student loans.

The federal government has suspended foreclosures and evictions for Americans with Federal Housing Administration mortgages and provided funding for emergency food aid to seniors, women, children, and low-income families.

The government has mobilized as though for war with the Defense Production Act, increasing productivity, getting supplies to the right place, and easing the financial burden of the crisis. For example, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will buy 500 million N95 respirators for the Strategic National Stockpile, and the U.S. Department of Defense will buy five million respirator masks and 2000 ventilators.

The ultimate goal is to help develop a vaccine to combat the pandemic, get Americans back on their feet, financially and health-wise, and setting America on the road to recovery.

    HENRY KISSINGER TO PRESIDENT TRUMP
    This Is “A Moment When The Opportunity To Build A Constructive, Peaceful World Order Is Very Great”

    The president spoke to members of the press ahead of his Tuesday morning meeting with Dr. Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State and foreign policy luminary:

    Kissinger said that the Trump administration is overseeing

    “a moment when the opportunity to build a constructive, peaceful world order is very great.”

    “And the President is leaving on a trip to Asia, which I think will make a big contribution to progress and peace and prosperity,” Kissinger also said.

    The president commented: “We’ve made a lot of progress in the Middle East with ISIS and so many other things. It’s a much calmer place. But, Henry, I say often, I inherited a mess, but we’re fixing it.”

    Transcript:

    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Henry Kissinger has been a friend of mine. I’ve liked him, I’ve respected him. But we’ve been friends for a long time, long before my emergence in the world of politics, which has not been too long.

    But we have been really in, I guess you’d say, the New York scene a little bit — but we got to know each other very well. He’s a man I have great, great respect for. He’s also somebody — usually I say, “Have you ever been in the Oval Office?” And with Henry Kissinger, I didn’t bother asking that question because he has been in this office many, many times.

    But it’s an honor to have Dr. Kissinger with us, a man of immense talent, and experience, and knowledge. And I’m going to talk to him for a while, and we’re going to learn a lot. But I can say from a world standpoint and with many of the countries that Henry and I would talk about before the election — because I would talk with Henry before the election — we’ve made a lot of progress with many of them. We have some outstanding, and we’ll handle that as we have to handle it.

    But we’ve made a lot of progress in the Middle East with ISIS and so many other things. It’s a much calmer place. But, Henry, I say often, I inherited a mess, but we’re fixing it.

    So you may want to say something. And thank you for being here, Henry. Thank you very much.

    DR. KISSINGER: Mr. President, I didn’t expect this opportunity. It’s always a great honor to be in this office, and I’m here at a moment when the opportunity to build a constructive, peaceful world order is very great.

    And the President is leaving on a trip to Asia, which I think will make a big contribution to progress and peace and prosperity.

    Thank you for inviting me.

    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, Henry. I appreciate it.
