President Donald Trump will deliver a daily news briefing alongside members of the White House’s coronavirus task force on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Tuesday’s briefing will come after his meeting with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has at times been critical of the president’s response to the pandemic. Cuomo and Trump previously sparred over the number of ventilators needed in the state, as New York has become the worldwide epicenter of coronavirus cases in recent weeks.

The briefing also comes moments after the US Senate voted to approve a $500 billion spending bill, with a majority of the funds being used to replenish the now depleted Paycheck Protection Program.
