Oops! Trump's Press Secretary Accidentally Discloses POTUS Bank Details

On March 13, Trump issued a proclamation declaring the pandemic a "national emergency".

White House coronavirus task force official Deborah Birx on Friday said that sports such as golf could be played safely if social distancing was in place and players didn't touch flags. "The death toll is still rising".

Joe Biden is targeting President Donald Trump for playing golf on Memorial Day weekend as the coronavirus death toll rose to nearly 100,000.

During a White House press briefing, Donald Trump's press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, happened to show the original $100,000 check from the president's bank account, revealing both his private account and routing numbers. Also making headlines, Donald Trump's decision to spend Saturday playing golf at his course in Virginia.

When asked for comment, White House spokesman Judd Deere, said in a statement, "President Trump has donated his entire salary since he took office - a promise he made and has kept - and today his salary went to help advance new therapies to treat this virus, but leave it to the media to find a shameful reason not to simply report the facts, focusing instead on whether the check is real or not".

The United States recorded a further 1,127 deaths from COVID-19 on Saturday, bringing its total to 97,048 since the global pandemic began, as per tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.

Trump levied frequent criticism of Barack Obama's regular golf outings when he was president. In August 2014, once again tweeting about Ebola, he called the leaders "incompetent".

Trump also planned Memorial Day visits to Arlington National Cemetery and the Fort McHenry national monument in Baltimore, followed by a trip to Florida's coast on Wednesday to watch to USA astronauts blast into orbit.

Trump is an avid golfer who has been overheard telling his White House guests how much he had missed playing the game.

The golf outing came a day after Trump said houses of worship were "essential" and he demanded that governors allow them to reopen during the holiday weekend.
