Comedian Tracy Morgan defended President Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus outbreak, saying that now is not the time for blame.

"The struggle is real," Morgan told Today show co-host Hoda Kotb. "People want to criticize the president, but imagine being a president of a country and have your country get sick. So it's difficult for him. We've all got to pull together as people, now."

He continued, "Now is not the time for blame and all these other things, and anger. It's here now. We just got to be together. We've got to all stay safe. Nobody wants to transmit it, nobody wants to attract it, nobody wants to get it. So let's just stay safe and do the protocol that we have to do."

The general public is not blaming Trump for the coronavirus, but his late response to the outbreak has been heavily criticized. Trump has dismissed the growing pandemic as an "impeachment hoax," and has only in the past couple of weeks, admitted that it was a severe crisis.
