Stop if you've heard this before, but the coronavirus has brought the world to a standstill. First cities, and now entire countries, are under lockdown as governments around the world look to fight the Covid-19 pandemic and save the lives of those most vulnerable to the deadly virus. 

While it's impossible to say what constitutes the best advice during such an unprecedented time, one thing we do recommend is that everybody stays stay up-to-date with and follows the latest guidelines issued by their government.

In the US, keeping up with the latest coronavirus news is relatively easy, as the White House holds a daily Covid-19 briefing led by 45th President Donald Trump. The short version? Yes, it's now a national emergency and one that's unlikely to 'just disappear'.

Whether you live in America, are keen to know what's going on in the States, or simply want to catch the President's next potential viral moment, here's how to watch Donald Trump coronavirus update today and follow all the latest Covid-19 news as it breaks.

What time does Donald Trump's coronavirus update start today?

From Big Macs to press briefings, Donald Trump is a man known for his love of routines - and that means that White House coronavirus updates go live at the same time each day.

Daily briefings are held by the President and the rest of the Coronavirus Task Force at 5pm ET, which is 2pm PT and 10pm BST in UK.

Most recently, The Donald backtracked on claims the US would be recovering from the pandemic by Easter, and is now instead suggesting that keeping the national death toll at under 100,000 would be a 'good' result for the country.

Watch Trump's coronavirus updates where YouTube isn't available

YouTube is available in a great many countries around the world, but it's also blocked in some. Where that's the case and you find yourself in such a situation, remember that you can always use a clever piece of software called a VPN (or Virtual Private Network) to relocate your IP address back to where you live and stream all the things you normally would from home. 

Just be mindful of local regulations and consider if watching today's Trump Covid-19 speech is worth potentially getting in trouble with the authorities over.


While there are hundreds of VPNs to choose from, we always recommend ExpressVPN. As well as being fast, simple, and straightforward to install, it's also compatible with a whole host of devices - Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, iOS and Android to name some of the main ones.

Plus, ExpressVPN's flexible 30-day money back guarantee is difficult to argue with. Even better, you can purchase an annual plan for a 49% discount and 3 months extra FREE – a brilliant offer for an essential bit of software.

Once installed, select the location of your home country and simply click connect. You’ll then be able to easily watch Trump's coronavirus update live online today from pretty much anywhere in the world.
