On march 3rd white house spokesman stephanie graisham tweeted a check showing that president trump had donated $100,000 to the u.s. health and human services department to curb and combat the new outbreak. As of 5 p.m. on Wednesday, the United States had reported nine deaths from new coronary pneumonia, with a total of 117 confirmed infections and a further 231 under close observation.
All deaths are currently from Washington state, five of whom are residents of a nursing home on the outskirts of Seattle. In fact, one of the three new deaths occurred last week.
Trump was very anxious about the outbreak, urging pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to quickly develop vaccines.Tony Fauci, President of the National Institutes of health, was annoyed because he had repeatedly refuted Trump's claim that vaccine development would take at least a year or more, and the two had a quarrel.
Donald Trump is the richest president in American history, and Forbes has estimated Trump's net worth at about $4.5 billion. Trump, however, denied the claim, claiming that his wealth was well over $10 billion.
