Just one day after putting the responsibility on the states to get their own supplies, President Trump appears to now be saying the federal government is going to help states get crucial medical supplies.
"We have millions of masks which are coming which are distributed to the states. The states are having a hard time getting them," Trump said.
On the medical supplies, he added: "They'll be here soon and we'll ship them directly to states."

He continued, "The federal government is not supposed to be out there buying vast amounts of items and shipping. You know, we're not a shipping clerk."
