During Monday’s White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing, My Pillow founder Mike Lindell spoke at the podium and encouraged Americans to pray during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lindell announced last week that his company will manufacture face masks for hospitals, amid the coronavirus pandemic. “@MyPillowUSA is excited to announce that we are now manufacturing face masks for hospitals across the country!” he tweeted.
“I’m proud to manufacture our products in the United States and I’m even more proud to serve our nation in this great time of need. Thank you, Mr. President, for your call to action, which has empowered companies like My Pillow to help our nation win this invisible war,” Lindell said at the White House Rose Garden on Monday.
He praised President Trump’s response to the crisis and also said prayer was needed after religion has disappeared in public schools.
“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on,” Lindell said. “God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word. Read our Bibles and spend time with our families.”
“Our president gave us so much hope, were just a few short months ago, we had the best economy, the lowest unemployment, wages going up. It was amazing. With our great president, vice president, and this administration, and all the great people in this country praying daily, we will get through this, and back to a place that’s stronger and safer than ever,” he added.

Meanwhile, CNN’s senior media reporter, Oliver Darcy, tweeted, “CNN cuts away from the White House coronavirus briefing” when Lindell spoke at the podium.
Now that Trump has returned to podium, CNN has dipped back into the White House briefing. MSNBC and Fox stayed with the briefing throughout.
