President Trump has not met with the coronavirus task force in months, and is not expected to do so in the final days before the election, according to an administration official.
President Donald Trump hasn't met with his coronavirus task force in months and is not expected to before the election.
05:14Steele was elected party chairman in 2009 as the GOP sought to regroup from President Barack Obama's historic victory in 2008 and he presided over the RNC as it marshaled tea party opposition to the Obama-Biden administration to make significant gains in Congress and across the country in the 2010 midterms.
A former lieutenant governor of Maryland, Steele lost a 2006 bid for U.S. Senate in the heavily Democratic state. He has become an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, serving as a senior adviser of the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump super PAC. But until Tuesday morning he had not officially endorsed Biden.
His backing comes as the Trump campaign has sought to make inroads among African American voters, especially younger Black men who have tended to support Biden in lower numbers than other age groups.Because of his role with the Lincoln Project, it's unlikely Steele, who is also a political analyst for MSNBC, would play a direct role in Biden's campaign or act as a surrogate. But he informed the Biden campaign of his plans to publicly support him.

Over the last seven days, Biden outspent Trump in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin, per the latest figures from Advertising Analytics.That's every single state listed as a toss-up or leaning Democrat/Republican
by the Cook Political Report, meaning that Biden has the TV/radio spending edge in every single one of the most competitive states.Biden already had the edge in an overwhelming number of battleground states, but his total supremacy on the airwaves there came this past week when the Trump campaign cut its TV spending in Georgia in half week-over-week to about $720,000. Meanwhile, the Biden campaign boosted its weekly spend in Georgia to $1.5 million over the last seven days.
TV and radio spending don't make up the full story. Trump's campaign is still spending heavily on digital platforms, and if money meant everything, Trump would have lost the 2016 race to Democrat Hillary Clinton.But it's the latest sign of ways in which the resource gap may be having an impact on the race —
revealed that the effort to elect Biden significantly outraised the Trump re-elect in September, and that the pro-Biden effort entered October with $180 million more in the bank than Trump's re-elect.Share this -7d ago / 4:27 PM UTCSenate Democrats post historic fundraising totals as battle for Senate control reaches home stretch
WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats are riding a wave of historic third-quarter fundraising numbers into the final weeks before Election Day, even as Republicans are raising significant money of their own.Before this quarter, no Senate candidate had ever raised more in a single three-month quarter than former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke,
who raised more than $38 millionin the third quarter of 2018.But between July and September of this year, South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison raised $58 million, Maine Democrat Sara Gideon raised $39.4 million and Arizona Democrat Mark Kelly raised $38.7 million.
U.S. Senate candidate Sara Gideon speaks at campaign event on Feb. 19, 2020 in Skowhegan, Maine.Robert F. Bukaty / APSix other Democrats — Kentucky's Amy McGrath ($36.8 million), Iowa's Theresa Greenfield ($28.8 million), North Carolina's Cal Cunningham ($28.3 million), Montana's Steve Bullock ($26.8 million), Colorado's John Hickenlooper ($22.6 million), and Georgia's Jon Ossoff ($21.3 million) all raised more than $20 million last quarter.
With Harrison raising more than any other Democrat, South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham outraised all other Republican Senate candidates with $28.4 million. Arizona Republican Sen. Martha McSally raised $22.7 million, Kentucky Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell raised $15.7 million, Michigan Republican John James raised $14.4 million and Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines raised $11.5 million.
It's clear the Democrats have the fundraising edge — when looking at all the Senate races rated"likely" or more competitive by the Cook Political Report (except Georgia's special election, where a slew of candidates are still running in a jungle primary), the average Democrat raised about $26 million last quarter compared to the average Republican's $10.2 million.
But as Democrats spend big, primarily on television airwaves, the average Democrat has a similar amount of money in the bank than the average Republican candidate — $9.5 million in cash on hand for the average Democrat and $7.1 million for the average Republican.
For example, despite raising almost $58 million last quarter, Harrison's South Carolina campaign had about $8 million in cash-on-hand, about equal with Graham. And while North Carolina's Cunningham outraised Republican Sen. Thom Tillis by a factor of four, Tillis ended the quarter with $6.6 million in the bank to Cunningham's $4.2 million.

On Wednesday, the Biden campaign announced that it (along with the Democratic National Committee and its affiliated joint-fundraising committees) raised $383 million in September, ending the month with $432 million in cash on hand between them all. Read more: MSNBC »
Coronavirus live updates: Pennsylvania could run out of ICU beds by next week
A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 1.3 million people worldwide.
Republicans the party of liars So typical Too late now,a failure adminstrative. Trump failed to execute his promise to control the coronavirus pandemic which presently has killed 225K Americans. Vote Biden who has a plan to control coronavirus. Donny Soprano doesn't care about America. Why should he? He diesn't care. He is totally responsible for every death. Cases, no. Deaths, yes.
DTHutson Why bother? He's totally ineffective and unqualified. mike_pence hasn’t met with HIS task force either. 🤣🥃🧨🔥🏛🐘💩🧻💯🇺🇸 He’s a pos clown 🤡 And this is news why? Dangerous Curves Ahead. It's not like him getting involved would help People are dying!!! Ok.....? The way he ran from Leslie is the same way he ran from handling COVID-19
Trumps MO is profiting off of failure, he’s done it his entire life suesea2010 He's bored, he's over it and he can't spin it to his favor. The disease isn't something like a bad remark or unpopular law. .JoeBiden & KamalaHarris should try this when dealing w/ Republicans refusing to WearAMask. Biden should say: I'll let you open your State, long as you ALL mask up. If you give me an honest attempt & COVID19 numbers go down, great. If they go up then you'll do it my way.
Maybe not in front of cameras but in his office individually you can’t know everything Trump has never implemented a CV19 control program and has given up even tying. The Hague should try him for crimes against humanity as the only leader on earth who is actively spreading CV19. Because he doesn't care.. He never has, he never will, and he's not even trying to fake it anymore. He is a clinical psychpath..
The whole corona thing is just a sham for the Dems to gain back control and steal rights away from the people. Garbage. There is nothing else to do. Everyone knows what to do. This is just typical MSNBC. Because he doesn’t have a clue and gives less than a damn!! DO NOT TRUST POLLS, trust your vote 🗳 If you’re an elderly voter in Florida Texas Arizona Pennsylvania or Ohio, you can’t trust Trump with your health. He ignores the pandemic. He spreads misinformation. Cowardice. He will put America into a public health catastrophe this winter. Vote VoteEarly VoteHimOut
Knowmium You mean his Vice President? How can you lie like this and sleep at night. Lies. He was just on TV with them last month doing briefings the whole month of August and half of Sept. Because he is an arrogant son of a bitch. Who does not card Going with the herd immunity strategy JuddApatow He gave up even trying to look like he cares.
Well you can imagine my shock at this wholly unexpected Plot Twist. The POTUS who claims to love America and so patriotic is doing the most unpatriotic disgusting thing a POTUS can do. Give up on fighting for American lives. Total lack of leadership & WH government failure. Damn This morning on the Sunday morning show. It was stated they surrendered to the pandemic . It’s live or die folks. Nothing in between at this point. Sad day for a country that use to put the people above all. No matter what the problem. We NEVER turned coward and ran. NEVER.
Why would he? He could care less about the virus. Trump is tired of the virus. You know it is what it is. Shocker What is Trump corona interested in? Trump is only interested in re-election so that he and his rich friends can fill their pockets even more. This is called skimming off profit! Or walk over corpses. American corpses! 238.000 death
We're still on the front line. JuddApatow TO EVERYONE - There are three 3 imperfect choices to fix our broken health system, Which would you choose and WHY? He had time for a Halloween party at WH And Dr. Birx is where? The “health and wealth gospel” per Paula White is the WH guide. Why would he meet with them? according to Trump and his chief of staff they've given up fighting Covid and have moved on leaving all of us behind to figure it out or die as Trump goes campaigning 12 times a day....
Trump said he wanted to drain the swamp but Biden is going to and this shitshow What coronavirus task force? Let's not forget He’s too busy taking care of Sudan and Israel’s affairs The lives of the American people don’t matter to Trump, no one should be surprised or shocked about this. The only thing that matters to Trump is Trump.
Trump told us we are over this pandemic now.... just saying 🤷🏼♀️😷 What difference does that make? None. It's all herd immunity, baby - put your heels up on the desk, Tweet and watch Fox, and wait for the millions to die. VoteBlueToSaveAmerica MASK UP AMERICA ! that's because of his wishful thinking ... you know, the virus is 'coming around the turn'?
Because realDonaldTrump doesn’t care about COVID19 and never did He never had a plan He never had enough testing He never had empathy for those that died He never wore a mask Trump failed Americans Vote him out in November TrumpKnewAndDidNothing What's coronavirus? Good vote his ass out trump is no dam good for America
But we’re supposed to believe he’s looking out for our best interest🤦🏾♂️ PaHouseDems He does not care. He is over Covid. Wants to make Israel happy now. He just does not care Trump lacks true leadership skills. Only his supporters see him as their savior. I saw this sign driving down a neighborhood and felt like pulling over to throw up! Next to Vote Trump sign. Really?
Because he doesn’t care about the condition of the American people and there continued struggle under his dictatorship . A practical raciest and womanizer who thrives on negative bashing of poor people. He’s done with it. Deep down he probably doesn’t care if he wins. Never really wanted the job anyway. JustAHuntch
A strategy and science make him look weak I guess👎 change of leadership needed vote BIDEN/HARRIS 🇺🇸🌊🇺🇸
