White House says it did not pressure CDC over education guidelines

WASHINGTON, July 8 (Reuters) - The White House did not pressure the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to revise its guidelines on how schools can safely open in the fall after criticism from President Donald Trump, a White House spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

Vice President Mike Pence announced earlier on Wednesday that the CDC plans to issue new guidelines for reopening schools after Trump slammed the agency’s recommendations as too expensive and impractical. (Reporting by Jeff Mason; Writing by Eric Beech; Editing by Sandra Maler)
