OnPolitics: How is Trump responding to the coronavirus?

Trump says we’re ready

President Donald Trump said the nation is prepared for the coronavirus during a Wednesday press conference where he announced that Vice President Mike Pence would lead the administration’s response. 

“We’re very, very ready for this,” Trump said. “The risk to the American people remains very low.”
