The White House was always one of the busiest social hubs in Washington, accustomed to hosting at least three to five events per day, ranging from meetings with dignitaries and VIPs to smaller luncheons or private dinners. That is, until Covid-19.

The delegation was led by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md,. and also includes Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., among others.
The Trump administration threatened to use veto powers Wednesday over legislation that would grant Washington D.C. statehood, which is set to be voted on the House floor this week.
Aides couldn’t immediately reach the president to get him to take down offending tweet because he was on the course at his golf club and had put down his phone, officials said.
