As Trump Visits, Arizona Has 'Highest Single-Day' COVID-19 Death Toll

Description:

Trump visits Arizona to tout coronavirus response after they experience their highest single-day death toll. Aired on 05/05/2020


Rachel Maddow shares video of a protest in which body bags were stacked in front of Donald Trump's Washington, D.C. hotel at a time when the U.S. COVID-19 death toll projection numbers Trump is talking about have actually nearly been met already just a short time into the coronavirus crisis. Aired on 4/23/2020.
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said his state recorded the highest single-day increase in deaths since the outbreak began, as 731 people died.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has asked New York companies to transition to manufacturing PPE for hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As states reopen, Trump is taking to calling people warriors seeming to suggest the death toll across the nation is necessary collateral damage to get the American economy going again. But most polls show consumers are not ready to take to stores and restaurants again. Aired on 05/06/2020.
