President Trump said that the death toll from coronavirus could end up being “substantially below” the 100,000 deaths predicted by models last week.
“It looks like we're headed to a number substantially below the 100,000, that would be the low mark,” Trump said.
Trump said that the American people have shown tremendous "resolve” to help lower the projections.
The President noted that 60,000 deaths is still a significant number, but it is much lower that original projections.
“Hard to believe that if you had 60,000, you can never be happy, but that's a lot fewer than we were originally told and thinking,” Trump said.
