White House Cancels Today’s COVID Press Briefing

The New York Times reports:

The White House canceled the daily coronavirus briefing that it had listed on the schedule for Monday as Mr. Trump continued to complain about news coverage of his handling of the pandemic.

Kayleigh McEnany, the newly appointed White House press secretary, told reporters that there would be no briefing even though it had been listed on the calendar for 5 p.m. as usual. Instead, Mr. Trump is expected to open up a meeting with industry executives scheduled in the White House at 4 p.m., addressing a small pool of reporters.

Ms. McEnany said the regular briefings in the White House press room that have included public health experts as well as the president may be resumed later in the week in a new format.
