Trump to Declare National Emergency

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency Friday in response to the spread of the Wuhan corona virus in the United States.

A news conference is scheduled for 3:00 PM EST.

The declaration would invoke the Stafford Act. Such an emergency declaration would allow a state to request a 75% federal cost-share for expenses that include emergency workers, medical tests, medical supplies, vaccinations, security for medical facilities, and more.
