Trump Says Coronavirus Task Force Will Continue ‘Indefinitely’


President Trump said Wednesday the White House coronavirus task force would not be dissolved entirely, tweeting that they “will continue on indefinitely,” but may “add or subtract” officials. 

“The White House CoronaVirus Task Force, headed by Vice President Mike Pence, has done a fantastic job of bringing together vast highly complex resources that have set a high standard for others to follow in the future,” Trump said in a series of tweets. “Because of this success, the Task Force will continue on indefinitely with its focus on SAFETY & OPENING UP OUR COUNTRY AGAIN. We may add or subtract people to it, as appropriate.”

The president added that the task force would also be “very focused on Vaccines & Therapeutics.”
