WASHINGTON (WFLA) — The White House has canceled Monday’s Coronavirus Task Force media briefing, but President Donald Trump is still expected to speak.

The White House Coronavirus Task Force has been holding press conferences almost every afternoon during the week. The cancellation comes two days after President Trump suggested the briefings are “Not worth the time and effort.”

While the White House has cancelled the Coronavirus Task Force briefing, Pres. Trump is still expected to speak at 5 p.m. from the Rose Garden.
