"Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory has been won. Therefore we will be extending our guidelines to April 30," he said.

Previously, Trump wanted the U.S. economy reopened by Easter Sunday, April 12, despite medical experts around the country saying that deadline would be unlikely. Trump said he hopes the country and everyone will "be well on our way to recovery" on June 1.

On Sunday morning, Trump also boasted about his growing TV ratings, while Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House Coronavirus Task Force warned that up to 200,000 Americans could die from COVID-19.

Trump quoted an article from the New York Times that provided recent viewership statistics of his coronavirus press conferences. The article states that they have averaged 8.5 million viewers, roughly the same size as audiences for ABC's "The Bachelor." Last Monday's conference drew nearly 12.2 million viewers, putting it on pace with "Monday Night Football."
