President Trump is set to address the nation tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern to give an update on the administration’s response to the coronavirus. Maybe that’s what the Daily Mail means when they splash on their front page, “TRUMP ACTS AT LAST.”

Maybe the Daily Mail and just about everyone else in America missed it because of the impeachment circus, but the administration had a task force up and running in January — and about the only media attention it got at the time were complaints about the lack of diversity on the task force.
What, exactly, does the Daily Mail mean? They stuck this tweet on their front page and then wrote about tonight’s TV address.
I am fully prepared to use the full power of the Federal Government to deal with our current challenge of the CoronaVirus!

He’s already got Congress on board with an emergency $8.3 billion spending package. Even California Gov. Gavin Newsom told reporters after a private conversation with Trump that the president said everything Newsom “could have hoped for” and the administration has since followed through. If Newsom passed up a chance to bash Trump, he must be doing something right.
This tweet is wildly inaccurate.
Jan 7, CDC establishes a coronavirus incident management system.
End of Jan., @realDonaldTrump initiated travel restrictions w/ China. Experts: that was critical to slowing spread of coronavirus.
It's nonsense to say Trump is "FINALLY" acting. https://t.co/nMCkED8JaB

Weren't travel restrictions put in place weeks ago and didn't he sign an $8.3 billion bill a few days ago? But I'm sure the Dem narrative appreciates the boost. https://t.co/4HdY7fwF32

The CDC put forth a management system on Jan 7th. Completely inaccurate headline

Finally? Travel ban, daily meetings, a task force, 8B. What the hell is your definition of finally? Mine is after waiting 6 months and 1000 were dead, Obama FINALLY declared a national emergency.

Been living under a rock? What a useless and baseless headline

Wrong yet again. This started in early January

He is acting on it. CDC activated incident management system when Ds whining about Trump ordering Qasem Soleimani's death. CDC also activated emergency operations center, VP Pence has detailed steps they are taking, & travel ban instituted on potential virus carriers. #Trump2020

finally? He has been acting on it 2 days before China even announced it in January!

This headline, a blatant lie, is why no one trusts "the news".

This is completely false framing and flat-out dishonest.

The bitter Bettys at Daily Mail are out in full force today.

The real question is, when will the media FINALLY stop acting like nattering nabobs of negativism and begin reporting responsibly and soberly. The manufactured hysteria is as dangerous as it is unforgivable.

He has been acting. China’s failure last year to acknowledge this disease to the world has created the current state of this pandemic. At this point, because of China, we can all expect to be infected with this virus. Some won’t survive. Thank you China.

I see that you've been infected with The Chicken Little Disease! It's a strain of TDS.

Nope. The US response started over six weeks ago. Here's a good summary https://t.co/7GjLQAraWQ
And of course the Dems called it racist and xenophobic: https://t.co/bijf6IUMsY

MORE LIES. MORE FAKE NEWS.
This is exactly why you are the enemy of the people.
Probably more dangerous than the coronavirus itself.
— Geral (@hammonds_geral) March 11, 2020
He set up a task force a month ago. He cut off travel from China in late January. There are daily press conferences with real time updates.
If you think the President hasn't been acting on this, you're either lying or living in a cave.

We don’t know what’s up with the Daily Mail — maybe they got a new social media intern with a bad case of TDS.
Fake news: Daily Mail reports that President Trump stormed out of coronavirus briefing (very slowly) https://t.co/CA72LQMhGh
