US President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned Americans of a "very, very painful two weeks', saying a surge in the spread of the novel coronavirus is coming while the deadly virus has already infected more than 175,000 Americans so far. "The surge is coming and it's coming pretty strong," Trump said at his daily press briefing of the White House's COVID-19 task force.

We're going to have a very tough two weeks" before the country sees the "light at the end of the tunnel," Trump said. "This is going to be a very painful two weeks."
