RealClearPolitics White House correspondent Philip Wegmann asked President Trump what his message to Americans who are afraid of the coronavirus outbreak would be, at Wednesday's pandemic task force press conference.
PHILIP WEGMANN, REAL CLEAR POLITICS: Switching gears to a larger question here -- we have seen that before the pandemic, there were a lot of Americans who were already alienated. We saw death and despair increasing through suicide and other things.
Now, as these individuals, a lot of times in rural parts of the country, are self-isolating, what is your message to those individuals, and what do you hope individuals, communities, and churches will do reach out to them?
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: My message is to all Americans, but to those Americans going through a lot: We love them, we're with them, and we will not let them down. Thank you all very much.
