It's part of American Bridge PAC's latest $10 million wave of ads in key swing states aimed at cutting into Trump's margins with white, working-class voters.

"The President did deploy not just a whole-of-government approach, but also a whole-of-America approach".

But Trump said that he shakes everybody's hand.

"I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn't our fault", Trump said.

What he did not say is that anyone - asymptomatic or otherwise - ought to go to work. "Everybody has to be calm", he said. "The information that I think people received about Joe Biden was some of his historic connection, which understandably means something to people". "We are the last to leave".

Trump repeated his assertion that the journey restrictions he imposed on China early within the disaster had helped restrict the outbreak in the US. The number of the cases in the USA stood at about 200 on Thursday, including 12 deaths - 11 in Washington state and one in California. "But we simply ask today for the American people to engage in the common sense practices".

Trump has confronted criticism from Democrats for not having the nation correctly ready for the potential for a pandemic.

The US "has a great economy, but this blindsided the world and I think we've handled it very well", he told reporters. What we've to do is do knowledgeable job.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said schools would be closed and public gatherings suspended in a coronavirus "hot zone" in New Rochelle, a New York City suburb, and deployed US National Guard troops there.

"We're going to be meeting with House Republicans, (Senate leader) Mitch McConnell, everybody, and discussing a possible payroll tax cut, or substantial relief", he said.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the conference, which took place on February 26-29.

Mr. Trump did not say people should go to work while infected, though did suggest that it's common for people to do it.

Trump said a CDC employee had showed symptoms of the virus. "You know, you're hearing a lot of stuff about trying not to shake hands. It hasn't stopped me in any respect".

Trump added that he was "all set" to run against Sanders, and shared some of the attacks he was ready to make against Sanders' policies. She withdrew from the race on Thursday.

Four congressmen are now under quarantine at home, including former Presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Asked whether his polarizing style deepened the USA political divide, Trump defended how he conducted his personal messaging through tweeting and the like. Rep Gaetz was pictured driving with the President in his limousine as the pair left Florida on Monday and they later travelled together on Air Force One back to Washington D.C. "I really believe that".
