Trump said he would hold those who leaked U.K. intel about the Manchester explosion accountable and said they "should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

This comes after the news that U.K. officials will stop sharing intel about the terrorist attack with U.S. officials due to leaks to the media. U.K. PM Theresa May is expected to speak with Trump about the importance of securing intel. The full statement:

"The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling. These leaks have been going on for a long time and my Administration will get to the bottom of this. The leaks of sensitive information pose a grave threat to our national security. I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is no relationship we cherish more than the Special Relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom."

President Trump has not attended a White House coronavirus task force meeting in “several months,” NIAID director Anthony Fauci told MSNBC on Friday.

Why it matters: At the beginning of the pandemic, the task force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, met every day, but in the "last several weeks," members have held virtual meetings once a week, Fauci said, even as the number of new cases continues to surge in the country.
