ST. PAUL - President Donald Trump has approved the state of Minnesota's request for federal disaster assistance amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump's Tuesday, April 7 approval comes two days after Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz requested federal assistance, saying that the state "responded quickly to this public health disaster and continues to do so to the fullest extent possible," but "the state's ability to respond to and recover from this event will be severely impacted" without federal help.
