"All over the World the CoronaVirus, a very bad "gift" from China, marches on".

President Trump expressed his "heartfelt sympathy" on Thursday as the USA coronavirus death toll passed 100,000.

The task force has essentially been sidelined by Trump, said senior administration officials and others close to the group, who described a greatly reduced role for the panel created to guide the administration's response to the pandemic. "We have just reached a very sad milestone with the coronavirus pandemic deaths reaching 100,000", he said.

The American President Trump is being criticised heavily by opposition leaders and public for his mismanagement. "God be with you!" said the president.

Trump didn't initially weigh in on the nation reaching the grim milestone yesterday, as a substitute tweeting this morning about particular counsel Robert Mueller, Democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer and his anticipated govt order directed at social media firms.

Naija News recalls the United States as at Thursday has recorded about 1.74 million confirmed coronavirus cases which also include 372,000 recoveries.

In a video message posted Wednesday afternoon, former Vice President Joe Biden addressed the death toll, remarking that "there are moments in our history so grim, so heart-rending, that they're forever fixed in each of our hearts as shared grief". 100,000 lives have now been lost to this virus.

According to the Sante Fe New Mexican, Griffin's comment came in a speech that took place at a rally at church in the city of Truth or Consequences.
