Donald Trump contradicts health officials

President demanded the director of centres for disease control walk back his warning about a possible second wave of coronavirus.

US President Donald Trump has dismissed the possibility of a severe, second wave of coronavirus infections later in the year.

During a press briefing, he seemed to once again contradict his own health officials.

He also officially signed an executive order suspending immigration for 60 days, something Trump says will safeguard jobs.
