President Donald Trump said he expects that "large sections" of the United States could open up before others at the coronavirus task force briefing on Wednesday.

"The sooner we can eventually get people back to work, back to school and back to normal. And there are large sections of our country, probably can go back much sooner than other sections, and we're obviously looking at that also," Trump said, introducing the briefing.

  Apple is reportedly aware of flaky Personal Hotspots in iOS 13 Apple hasn't entirely escaped the flurry of iOS 13 glitches, it seems. MacRumors has reportedly obtained support documents acknowledging ongoing connection problems with the Personal Hotspot feature in iOS 13 and its iPadOS 13 counterpart. Affected users either disconnect frequently or can't connect at all -- a significant problem if you're counting on your device's hotspot as a backup connection. It's not certain just when the issue first manifested, although iPhone and iPad users have reported issues as far back as iOS 13.1.2. We've asked Apple for comment.

The president then said he'd signed major disaster declarations for a number of states, including New York, California, Washington, Iowa, Louisiana, Texas and Florida. The declarations allow these states to access federal funding for crisis counseling and emergency protective measures.

Trump also clarified that though Americans wanted things to return to normal, he would not act prematurely.

"I'm not going to do rash or hastily, I don't do that. But the country wants to get back to work. Our country was built to get back to work. We don't have a country where they say, 'Hey, let's close it down for two years.' We can't do that. It's not our country. So we're going to be talking, and it could be we'll do sections of our country. There are big sections of our country that are very little affected by what's taken place, then there are other sections that are very heavily affected," Trump said.

Trump again repeated his desire to have a recommendation for Americans to return to work by Easter. The president bristled when a reporter earlier questioned his timeline of the Easter holiday, asking if the timeline was based on his political interests.

"The media would like to see me do poorly in the election," Trump said. "Just so you understand, are you ready? I think there are certain people who would like it not to open so quickly. I think there are certain people that would like it to do financially poorly, because that would do very good as far as defeating me at the polls."

The president then accused the reporter who asked the question of writing "fake news."

As of Wednesday morning, the U.S. had over 55,000 cases of the coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. Though the U.S. outbreak started in Washington state, New York has become the state hardest hit by the pandemic, with over 15,000 cases and 192 deaths, accounting for nearly a quarter of the 802 people who have died nationally.

Nearly half of the country's governors have put their states into lockdown, closing all non-essential businesses in their states and ordering citizens to stay home. The initial wave of lockdowns included California, New York and Illinois, three states that make up a quarter of the U.S. economy. Those states have been recently joined by Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana and Louisiana. Some cities have also instituted their own lockdown orders, including Philadelphia. An economics professor predicted Sunday the pandemic could cost the U.S. $7 trillion and cause the worst job losses since the depression.

These changes have proven controversial, with Democrats alleging that the bill benefits corporations more than average Americans and gives the Treasury Department too much power in determining how to distribute the loans.
