Pres Trump: Pelosi Bill 'DOA'; Wants Schools Reopened As Quickly As Possible, and Other Coronavirus Updates

President Donald Trump shot down the massive new Democratic coronavirus relief package ahead of a planned House vote Friday.
"DOA. Dead on arrival. Of course, Nancy Pelosi knows that," he told reporters Wednesday at the White House.
About one-third of the $3 trillion legislation is relief for state, local and tribal governments, which many Republicans are resisting. The measure also includes assistance to essential workers, an extension of unemployment insurance beyond July, another round of $1,200 direct cash payments and various other measures that are unlikely to gain bipartisan support but serve as an opening bid for Democrats.
Trump ripped into election-related provisions that would require 15 consecutive days of early voting and the option for every American to vote by mail through an absentee ballot, rules that would take effect starting in the 2020 presidential contest.
"Mail-in ballots is subject to tremendous corruption. Tremendous corruption, cheating. And so I'm against it," Trump said. "And if you look at the bill that Nancy Pelosi is putting in, it has a lot to do with elections. We're not going to lose elections because of that."
There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the U.S., according to numerous studies, investigations and testimonials from election officials in states that vote by mail. Trump said recently that he is among the Americans who has voted by mail.
