White House press secretary talks COVID-19 response, defends Trump tweets about mail-in ballots|FULL
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany held a daily briefing on Wednesday to respond to questions regarding the Trump administration's response to COVID-19, among other topics.
During the briefing, McEnany defended President Donald Trump’s comments that some frontline workers were taking the drug, citing various studies including one at Henry Ford Health in Michigan that was studying its effectiveness in preventing or impeding COVID-19. She stressed it should be taken only if prescribed by a doctor.
She also responded to questions regarding tweets by the president earlier in the day regarding absentee ballot applications being mailed out in Michigan, which Trump initially called “illegal” and threatened federal funding. McEnany said his comments were about concerns he had about potential fraud resulting from “mass mail-in voting.” She did not answer what was illegal, however, saying that was a question for the Trump campaign.
