President Donald Trump speaks during press briefing with the Coronavirus Task Force, at the White House, Wednesday, March 18, 2020, in Washington.

The global pandemic of coronavirus/COVID-19 is requiring response from all levels of government, which has come with both compliments and some public disagreements.

President Donald J. Trump has applauded his administration's handling of response to the pandemic, while also simultaneously criticizing and thanking other leaders at various levels of government.

Meanwhile, coronavirus forced Ohio leaders to postpone Tuesday's primary election, even as three other states went to the polls to help choose the Democratic nominee for president.

Former Vice President Joe Biden won big in Florida, Illinois and Arizona. Is the end of the primary here, or near?

We have a full hour of live conversation about politics and leadership from our governments during the coronavirus pandemic.

Joining Cincinnati Edition are the Political Junkie Ken RudinWashington Post reporter Rhonda Colvin, who has been on the ground reporting on Ohio during the presidential primary, and we will also hear from U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH).
