White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany will not immediately answer when asked whether President Trump or the White House will be responsible if participants catch the corona virus during a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma to be held Saturday.

McEnany was involved in an extended exchange with CNN Jim Acosta, but never responded directly to the question.

“The campaign has taken certain steps to ensure this is a safe rally, temperature check, hand sanitizer and mask,” McEnany said at a press conference Wednesday. “We are taking precautions.

CNN reported that the participants of the upcoming Trump general meeting must agree not to sue campaign if they get corona virus.

Rallygoers are asked to RSVP to get permission to enter the event and by registering, they must agree to a disclaimer stating that they recognize “the risks inherent in COVID-19 exposure exist in every public place where people are present.”

Asked by Acosta whether participants would be required to wear masks, McEnany said they would not be asked.

“They will be given a mask, it is up to them whether to make that decision,” he said, adding that, “the CDC guidelines are recommended, but not necessary,” and that it is “the individual’s personal choice.”

McEnany later accused the media of not having “internal coherence,” for not asking the same questions from protesters who came out across the country after George Floyd’s death.

Acosta points out that they march against injustice, racism, and police brutality, do not attend political rallies, and once again ask whether the President or the White House will be held responsible if people are sick.

McEnany deflected, attacked health experts who came out to support the protest, and stressed that the campaign had taken “certain steps to ensure this was a safe rally.”

Asked later by other reporters whether the White House’s position was that outdoor and indoor events carried the same risk for the corona virus, McEnany said that it was the White House’s position that “the media shouldn’t make decisions about their guidelines for us about distance social based on political ideology. ”

The abolition of fees for teaching Portuguese abroad will not be accepted by parliament, MP says - Observer

According to Socialist MP Paulo Pisco, the views of the BE, PCP and PAN on the abolition of fees for teaching Portuguese abroad were voted on Tuesday in a parliamentary committee.

The Committee on Foreign Affairs and Portuguese Communities voted on Tuesday in favor of four projects – from the Left Bloc, the Communist Party of Portugal, “People-Animal-Nature” and “Enough”, which mainly advocate the abolition of fees for teaching Portuguese abroad and free school textbooks.

According to Paulo Pisco, a socialist member of the commission, the opinions of the BE, PKP and PAN were approved, but Chega’s opinion deserved to be abstained from the PS because it contained “xenophobic elements” in its purpose.

The MP had in mind, in particular, the recipients of this teaching, which is currently intended not only for the Portuguese or the descendants of the Portuguese, but also for those who want to learn the Portuguese language, with which Chega allegedly disagrees, according to Paulo Pisco. .


After the approval of these opinions, the abolition of the bribe would be discussed and voted on in the plenary session of the Assembly of the Republic, but Paulo Pisco said that they should not be approved, since the “commitment” of the government is different.

“The government’s obligation is to reduce the burden of the Portuguese” and this will always be determined “in every approved state budget”.
