President Trump is holding a news conference Thursday afternoon as his administration continues to insist it is doing a strong job addressing the coronavirus pandemic, even as the U.S. reports more deaths than any other country.

“We’ve done the best job of any country in the world,” Mr. Trump said during Wednesday’s press conference, touting his administration’s work on testing and ventilators.

Mr. Trump and his top advisers on Thursday morning announced an agreement to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The president said he hopes an agreement will be signed at the White House in the coming weeks. 

Meanwhile, the president is trying to decide how best to attack vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, in the last 24 hours calling her “nasty,” “disrespectful” and the “meanest.”
