A Polis spokesperson said the governor is looking forward to talking with the president, and that Polis plans to advocate for more federal support — including testing supplies and personal protective equipment — as Colorado continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump has been meeting with a number of governors at the White House these past weeks, to discuss opening back up, testing and other issues related to state and federal response to the coronavirus.
