In an interview with ABC's "This Week," the House leader said that Trump administration officials are not being realistic about the ability of local officials to keep students safe. 

"When you...reduce the spread, you can open up the schools, when you reduce the rate of infection in a community," Pelosi said. "But until you do that, you have to be very careful."

Pelosi also accused the administration of dealing in "disinformation," following days of criticism aimed at President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump nomination to be held in private: report Graham defends Trump on TikTok, backs Microsoft purchase Federal appeals court rejects Stormy Daniels libel case against Trump MORE over his retweet of a video that featured a doctor known for claiming that masks do prevent the virus's spread.

Trump has defended his retweet of the video, which was taken down by Facebook and Twitter, suggesting that he only retweeted it because of its support for hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug he has repeatedly promoted as a treatment of the virus despite a lack of studies showing its effectiveness.

On A Positive Note: Pittsburgh Couple Using Garage As Canvas To Spread Love And Peace

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Take a drive past the corner of Sarah and South 27 streets in the South Side and you may wonder why somebody would draw all over a homeowner’s garage.

“A lot of people, very often, are here either reading it or either writing on it,” said Ian George.

A closer look reveals messages of peace and love. It’s the “window of well wishes.”

“Between everything that’s going on, people have a voice. And a lot of people have a lot of positive things to say too,” said George.

Three months ago, Ian and his wife, Devon, offered up their garage as a blank canvas to the public.

Every day, they leave chalk, markers, and hand sanitizer on a stand outside for people to express themselves.

“You give somebody permission to write on your house, be ready for what could be written. And I will tell you, it has all been positive,” said Ian.

There have been a lot more smiles in the South Side ever since, according to people who pass by frequently.

“To be able to see people’s opinions and views on things is really nice,” said Jenna Bojtecky, who works nearby.

In a world that could use a little love, Ian said “look for the bright spots because we all have to.”
