    US President Donald Trump has been his own spokesman for much of the COVID-19 pandemic and for weeks he held press briefings almost daily.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is holding her first news briefing after replacing Stephanie Grisham on 8 April.

    In March, Trump stressed that his White House had "done a poor job on press relationships" while he was talking up the performance of his team in addressing the crisis.

    This is the first such briefing scheduled in more than a year. The last event was held by former Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in March 2019.
