Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Trump reportedly called former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez to ask for his thoughts on handling the coronavirus outbreak”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump apparently called former Yankee's player Alex Rodriguez for his thoughts on the administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak, ABC News reported Friday evening. 

Source told ABC that neither Rodriguez or his fiancé Jennifer Lopez will have any official role in the effort, but one source close to the baseball star reportedly said the call with the president was "pleasant."

ABC also reported that the call was part of a number of calls Trump made this week regarding the virus and its impact on the country.

The US currently has the highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the world with more than 104,000 infected and close to 1,700 deaths. 

Trump signed a $2 trillion coronavirus package today that would assist businesses and individual Americans.
