Chris Wallace Blasts White House Press Sec Kayleigh McEnany

Barack Obama and Donald Trump in the Oval Office

U.S. President Donald Trump kicked off the American summer season on Saturday with his first golf outing in two months, underlining his push for a return to normal life in the United States.

Birx responded by saying that the White House task force has used different models to understand how the virus is impacting both the USA and other countries. The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a global pandemic on March 11, and Trump followed with the national emergency declaration two days later.

The ad spliced footage of healthcare workers on the front line of the pandemic with clips of Trump on the course at his private Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia.

Wallace also questioned Dr. Deborah Birx, one of the lead members of Trump's coronavirus task force, about the White House's push to reopen the economy. The President was seen riding alone in his golf cart and a caddy didn't appear to be with him, Abdallah reported.

His last golf outing was to the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach on March 8, following a visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta during which he downplayed the threat of the virus.

The White House on Saturday confirmed Trump would also attend the May 27 launch in Florida of two astronauts on a SpaceX mission - the first crewed space flight from US soil in nine years.

"So please as you go out this weekend, understand you can go out, you can be outside". But she also warned that the Washington area continued to have high positive test rates. The capital city's coronavirus death rate is higher than all but four states: New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and CT.

Trump has ordered US flags on federal buildings and national monuments to half-staff through Sunday in memory of Americans lost to COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

However, a tweet from 2014 where President Trump criticised then-president Barack Obama for playing golf during the Ebola epidemic emerged.

"You can all make your decisions about going outside and social distancing, potentially playing golf if you're very careful and you don't touch the flags, and all of those issues", she said.

Of course, that wasn't the first time President Trump critiqued the Obama administration.
