Kellyanne Conway has urged the president to continue regular coronavirus task force briefings. This week, the White House counselor called on President Trump to continue addressing the nation in person to keep them informed on the current climate of the pandemic.
According to Conway, the president is working around the clock to keep in contact with governors around the country and supply states with what they need amid the recent surge of infections.
When asked about the president and first lady’s plans for Barron Trump’s return to education, the counselor emphasized it was the president’s decision to make.
“Oh, that’s a personal decision. I don’t know what Barron’s school has decided, and I certainly don’t know what the first couple has decided in respect to their teenage son, who I believe is entering high school this year. I have two kids in Maryland also, in private schools, and I think we are just waiting to see what those schools say.” – Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President
She went on to say she has been meeting with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to work out a safe alternative for children to return to school early this fall.
