Its a just a suggestion from a brilliant lab, from a very very smart, perhaps brilliant man, Trump said. Hes talking about sun, hes talking about heat. And you see the numbers. Thats it, thats all I have. Im just here to present talent. Im here to present ideas.
When asked by the president, Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force coordinator, said she was unaware of sunlight being an efficient tool against any virus. 
Trump was asked by another reporter if he was aware of the medical status of Kim Jong UN after CNN reported this week that the North Korean leaders was in poor medical condition after a surgery. Before Trump responded to the question, he touted the close relationship he has with Kim as opposed to other administrations. 
“I think the report was incorrect, he said of CNNs article. I think the report was done by a network was incorrect. Im hearing they used old documents… I hope it was an incorrect report. 
When asked by a CNN reporter if he has had any contact with Kim he declined to answer. 
CNN is fake news, dont talk to me, he said when she asked a follow up question.
Trump to reporter: “The problem is you don’t write the truth, so as far as I’m concerned I want to go to the next one.”
Reporter: “But can I ask you a question–?”
T: “No, not CNN, please.”
R: “The WH has not responded–”
T: “I told you, CNN is fake news. Don’t talk to me.” pic.twitter.com/Vo4gW3qa9P
