Former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg has purchased three minutes of Sunday night primetime air on NBC and CBS nationwide to deliver this "address to the nation" on the coronavirus.
"Mike will outline the facts: coronavirus is spreading, the economy is plummeting" and Mike Bloomberg "has the experience to handle the coronavirus outbreak," the campaign said Saturday in a press release.
"At times like this, it is the job of the President to reassure the public that he or she is taking all the steps necessary to protect the health and well-being of every citizen," Bloomberg says in the address. "The public wants to know their leader is trained, informed and respected. When a problem arises, they want someone in charge who can marshal facts and expertise to confront the problem."
