White House: Trump Won’t Follow Quarantine Order in New Jersey

US President Donald Trump sought to turn nationwide protests to his political advantage in a campaign appearance in the election swing state of Arizona on Tuesday, vowing to prevent "the left-wing mob" from pushing the United States into chaos. At a time when more than 20 million Americans are on the unemployment rolls, it is important to insure that opportunities generated by the US economy go to those who have lost their jobs due to the Chinese-originated COVID-19 virus response.

The two trips this week have been official, White House-led trips rather than campaign-sponsored ones, but the choice of states was not coincidental.

Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, responded to Twitter, saying it labeled as abusive behavior the president calling for the law to be enforced. But that was contradicted shortly thereafter.

"I could give you 19 or 20 names for that, right", Trump said at the event in Phoenix before listing off several phrases including "kung flu", Business Insider reported.

In an interview with Scripps for its local TV stations, Trump was asked Monday whether he did indeed tell aides to "slow it down".

She said that Trump's comments were an effort to criticize the media for its coverage of the coronavirus and its "failure" to understand that "when you test more, you also find more cases".

"What he wants open borders, he wants people pouring into our country, and he wants, you know, drugs and all the other problems", Trump claimed. "We got to get her in and Mark Kelly, who she's running against, is very weak on China and lots of other things".

Cases are going up in the USA because we are testing far more than any other country, and ever expanding.

"I speak to the president daily on many different topics", Conway replied, adding: "We don't always agree on everything, and that's why I work here".

"So, instead of 25 million tests, let's say we did 10 million tests".

"The challenges we face as a community, state and country are enormous, and they have grown only more immediate with the spread of the coronavirus, the tragic deaths of almost 125,000 Americans, and the incredibly harmful impacts this virus has had on our economy".

"There is a carve out for essential workers and I think by any definition the president of the United States is an essential worker", the governor said on CNN.

The agenda focused on border security and his long-promised border wall - familiar ground for the president that remains core to his reelection strategy.

New Jersey has the second-most COVID-19 deaths and third most cases among USA states, and the state's tax revenue has cratered in the wake of business closings and lockdown restrictions Murphy ordered to fight the virus' spread.
