NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Just moments after President Donald Trump wrapped a press briefing Saturday afternoon about his administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak, comes word that Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg will appear in "a three minute television address to the nation on the coronavirus which is threatening the population" which will air Sunday around 8:30 p.m. on CBS and NBC.

The taped response -- watch it ahead of Sunday night above -- is titled "Leadership In Crisis."

“At times like this, it is the job of the President to reassure the public that he or she is taking all the steps necessary to protect the health and well-being of every citizen,” Bloomberg says in the address. “The public wants to know their leader is trained, informed and respected. When a problem arises, they want someone in charge who can marshal facts and expertise to confront the problem.”
