President Donald Trump gave a press briefing on COVID-19, naming Vice President Mike Pence the head of his administration's response to the potential pandemic. Asked about the likelihood of a U.S. outbreak, Trump said, "I don't think it's inevitable" - which directly contradicts officials from the Centers for Disease Control who say the spread of coronavirus in the U.S. is a matter of when, not if. Trump also defended proposed budget cuts to the CDC by saying that he's a "businessperson, I don't like having thousands of people around when you don't need them." Aired on 02/26/20.
