Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney acknowledged that the coronavirus is likely to cause disruptions to everyday life, such as school closures and changes to public transportation, Bloomberg reports.
Said Mulvaney: “Are you going to see some schools shut down? Probably. Maybe see impacts on public transportation? Sure, but we do this. We know how to handle this.”
He added: “Really what I’d like to do today to calm the markets is tell people to turn their televisions off for 24 hours.”
Mulvaney also claimed that the media is only covering the virus because they believe doing so will “take down the president.”Save to Favorites
