"President Trump has delivered on his promises for all Americans - especially women - and will continue to do so for four more years", she said during the panel discussion, which among others was addressed by and National Co-Chairs of the Women for Trump Advisory Board Dr Gina Loudon, Katrina Campins, and Madison Gesiotto.

Edwards, who recently extended Louisiana's stay-at-home order through May 15, is now under fire from Republican lawmakers in his state.

North Dakota Farmers Union president Mark Watne said, "I think if the administration was aggressively trying to solve this issue in the short term, rather than force everybody back in that big plant, you, you do it safely as possible". While he was in Washington, some GOP legislators were trying to rally support to take the extraordinary step of trying to override the governor's emergency decision-making. "I just wanted to congratulate you", Trump said.

At the same time, Trump's campaign released a digital ad praising elements of the federal response.

"It's highly significant", said the usually cautious doctor.

Surpassing the 60,000 death toll on Wednesday was a particularly grim milestone, as a revised IMHE projection from last month estimated that number would be the final fatality total in August. "I don't know how anybody with a straight face can call this a great success and declare this a mission accomplished moment when more than 60,000 Americans are dead when more than a million are infected".

"Everyone's talking about testing", Kushner said.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump retracted his claim that the USA will soon be able to administer 5 million COVID-19 tests every day after his own testing director on the White House task force, Admiral Brett Giroir, emphatically rejected the possibility of that goal. Otherwise, they warn, cases will skyrocket as Americans return to work, creating another deadly spike.

White House adviser Jared Kushner speaks about the coronavirus in the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House, Thursday, April 2, 2020, in Washington. "And the hope is that ... by July the country is really rocking again".

Kushner painted a rosy picture for "Fox and Friends" Wednesday morning, saying that "the federal government rose to the challenge and this is a great success story and I think that that's really what needs to be told".

She added, "So we need to come together with a realistic assessment of where we are".
